Grain-Free Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

Grain-Free Pumpkin Muffins

The base of these muffins is tender and moist but not too dense. Even those who don't typical eschew grains will enjoy them. They make a tasty addition to breakfast or brunch served up alongside some eggs or as a quick treat with a hot cup of tea in the afternoon. I recommend slathering them with grass-fed butter for good measure.
