Gluten Free Pumpkin Cupcakes
Gluten Free Pumpkin Cupcakes are a terrific autumn treat! Frost them with my Lemon Frosting (it’s dairy-free!) or your favorite frosting. For a healthier option, use my Super Food Fudge Frosting and make a decadent chocolate-topped pumpkin treat!
Either way, you’ll love these Gluten Free Pumpkin Cupcakes!
- 2 cups Gigi's Everyday Gluten-Free Flour Blend (Gum-Free) or your favorite gum-free gluten-free all-purpse flour blend
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ cup sugar (coconut or brown sugar are nice in these!)
- 1 egg or 1 Tablespoon powdered egg replacer dissolved in ¼ c. warm water (or use your preferred egg-substitute to equal 1 egg)
- ⅓ cup pureed pumpkin (fresh or canned, but not pie filling!)
- 3 Tablespoon melted coconut oil (or other melted fat of choice, like butter or dairy-free butter substitute)
- 2 Tablespoons milk (I use unsweetened coconut milk; use dairy or plant based milk of your choice.)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Line a 12-section cupcake tin with paper liners.
- In a mixing bowl, combine flours, salt, soda, baking powder, and sugar; stir with a wire whisk until blended.
