Gluten Free Carrot Pumpkin Muffins

Gluten free, dairy free and NO added sugar!

These muffins are as clean as you can get! But don’t be fooled. They are loaded with flavour!

I pretty much like just about anything with Pumpkin. From pie, to cookies, to pancakes, even to smoothies, I use pumpkin pretty frequently in my recipes. Be sure to always purchase organic canned pumpkin. Not pumpkin pie filling. Otherwise, you’ll be loading up on a ton of sugar and preservatives.

These muffins are perfect for when that 3pm energy slump starts to hit. My energy slump generally hits me around 5pm. It’s that time of day when I typically head to the gym, but my mind is overwhelmed with all the work I need to do. Plus, I get home from work and just want to play with my cat! At this point, the gym doesn’t seem so exciting. Then that hunger pang kicks in! A few bites of these delicious muffins topped with some almond butter and I’m back in the game!

Gym time, go time and my flavour buds are fuelled! I’m ready to go!

Hope you enjoy these the next time your energy slump kicks in πŸ™‚
