Yes you can certainly enjoy Healthy (Paleo) Pumpkin Muffins on your journey.
During the fall and winter pumpkin is an integral part of my lifestyle. I use pumpkin in pies, muffins, and as a side dish for dinner, topped with a dollop of plant-based butter and toasted sunflower seeds. I find that canned unsweetened pumpkin is far tastier than fresh pumpkin. It’s also easier to prepare! While surfing the net I found this delicious-looking pumpkin muffin recipe. I decided to make this recipe, transform it to be Paleo and here it is!

WHAT IS SHARI MAC’S PRODUCT RECOMMENDATION FOR YOUR PALEO DIET?
I’m a huge fan of the Ninja products. In the past, I’ve gone through a counter-top convection oven every couple of years. This Ninja 1800-watt oven is a work horse! It is a must for me to support my diet. Since buying this Ninja I have not turned on my oven in months! Amazing in the summer! No heat in the kitchen from the traditional oven. I use the air-fryer for all our proteins every day. All my air-fried favorites have less bad saturated fat and therefore fewer calories. I cut chicken breasts in half, horizontally, and air-fry them for 20 minutes. You can set the temperature and timer for all sorts of foods and walk away from the kitchen. The machine will shut off automatically at the right time. My proteins are crispy on the outside and super juicy

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. To make muffins in the bowl of a mixer combine almond flour, tapioca flour, sea salt, guar gum. Mix together. Remove a ½ cup of mixture and set aside to use in the streusel. Add to the mixing bowl the eggs, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin spice, butter, date paste, and pumpkin. Mix together. Fold in raisins. Set aside. Spray a standard muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
To make the streusel, in another bowl combine the ½ cup of muffin mixture, butter, date paste, chopped pecans and cinnamon. The mixture will be quite wet. Set aside.
Using a tablespoon, transfer the muffin batter to the prepared muffin pan, filling each cup completely full. Using your fingers, divide the streusel evenly over the batter. If you are using a 12 cup muffin tin, you’ll have about 2 to 3 muffins to make for a second baking. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
Freezer-Friendly Instructions: The muffins can be frozen in an airtight container or sealable plastic bag for up to 3 months. Thaw for 3 – 4 hours on the countertop before serving. To reheat, wrap individual muffins in aluminum foil and place in a preheated 350°F oven until warm.
The recipe baking temperature and time is an estimate. Follow your own oven’s temperature and cooking time. It takes a gas oven 10-15 minutes to reach the desired temperature. Electric ovens can take 10 minutes longer than that. The age of your oven will also determine the temperature, time for roasting or baking, and where you want to place your dish in the oven. The bottom of your oven may be hotter than the top, depending on its condition. This also includes where to set your dish under the broiler. So use your own best judgment based on the type, condition, and age of your oven. Prep times will also vary depending on how slow or quickly you like to work.
