My Nut-Free Pumpkin Crumb Muffins are the perfect fall treat. Made with coconut flour and healing fall spices, you can serve these paleo muffins at brunch with my world famous caffeine-free Dandelion Coffee, or for dessert on a chilly fall evening. I love all things pumpkin so much that I bake these year round!
Nut-Free Pumpkin Crumb Muffins are super easy to make. The base has 7 ingredients and calls for canned pumpkin, so you won’t need to take the time to roast your own pumpkin, making it possible to whip these up in a few minutes. The topping has 4 healthy ingredients and is also incredibly simple.
It’s funny, I see so many recipes, paleo and otherwise, that have long ingredient lists. If you make these amazing muffins you’ll understand that it doesn’t take many ingredients on my end, and much time on yours, to create a flavorful healthy recipe!

Since this Nut-Free Pumpkin Crumb Muffins recipe is made of coconut flour, proper storage is a good idea. I leave these out to cool overnight, then wrap them in a paper towel and zip them into a plastic bag and place them in the fridge. When I don’t want to go the plastic bag route, I store them in the fridge in a sealed pyrex container. Either way, they’ll keep for around 4 days.
This is a healthy low-carb muffin recipe. Typical muffin recipes are made of wheat flour which is higher in carbohydrates than coconut flour, and often contain 1-2 cups of white sugar. If you are looking for low-carb recipes that are also high in fat, or LCHF recipes, check out my Keto Diet page.
