  • Preheat the oven to 350F/180C and line a muffin pan with large cupcake or muffin cases.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten free flour, baking soda, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt and spices until well combined.
  • In another large bowl, whisk the sugar and oil into a thick paste.
  • Add the flax egg, pumpkin puree, almond milk and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine.
  • Sieve the flour mixture into the bowl with the wet ingredients and gently fold everything together. It’s ok if there are a few small lumps.
  • Add the chocolate chips and fold them through.
  • Evenly distribute the mixture into your lined muffin holes. Each should be about ¾ of the way full.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer poked into the center of a muffin comes out clean.



  • I prefer using Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Baking Flour for this recipe. If you use that, you don't need to add xanthan gum since it's already included in the mix. 
  • Add in chopped nuts if desired.
