Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin muffins have a special place in my heart. I love enjoying these year-round and it’s even better that these can be considered almost-Paleo. Although many people who follow a Paleo lifestyle don’t eat any sugar, many others eat only naturally-occurring sources of sugar. These muffins contain honey, which in my opinion is a great source of naturally-occurring sugar, especially if you use local, raw honey. These muffins are also made with coconut flour, so they are completely grain-free! Yay Paleo!

These muffins make a great breakfast item, snack, or dessert, depending how strict you are with your sugar intake.
