How to Make Pumpkin Muffins with Greek Yogurt and That Are Gluten Free! 

Prepare your muffin tin by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray or place the paper liners in and preheat your oven to 425 degrees. 

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and soda, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and salt. Stir together well. 

In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs together, mix in the pumpkin and greek yogurt then stir. Add in the maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla then mix until it’s combined. 

Add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients stirring well, but being careful not to overmix! 

Fold in the chocolate chips, saving some for the topping. 

Pour the batter into the muffin cups filling them ¾ of the way full. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top. 

Bake until you can stick a toothpick in and it comes out clean. It should take about 15 to 18 minutes.

Before serving and removing the muffins from the pan, let them cool. 

Can These Be Made in a Vegan Version? 

Yes! You can swap the eggs and use flax eggs instead. For the greek yogurt, use a plant-based yogurt in its place.

Tips for Storing and Freezing 

Before putting the muffins in a container or Ziploc bag, make sure they have cooled completely. Store in the refrigerator due to the dairy. If you hate using plastic bags, I highly recommend you try Stasher bags!

If you want to freeze them after they have cooled put them in a freezer-safe container or bag and they will stay fresh for up to 2 months! 

To serve let them thaw at room temp or you can microwave them for a few seconds.
