It’s Halloween, and I figured we needed some kind of fun treat.
1 cup buckwheat flour (or sorghum flour, which is an avoid for O’s)
1/3 cup tapioca flour
1/3 cup arrowroot flour
1 tsp xantham gum
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 cup canned or cooked pumpkin
1 c maple syrup
1/3 c light olive oil or canola oil
Mix dry ingredients. Beat eggs and add wet ingredients to eggs, then add wet ingredient mixture into dry mixture. Put into muffin tins. I made 9, but I filled them all the way to the top and they came out very puffy. I think this would do better for 12 normal-sized muffins.
Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean.
Frost with carob almond butter frosting (based on Sarah’s recipe at Heart of Cooking):
1/2 cup almond butter
3 Tbsp carob
3 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp non-dairy milk
Mix ingredients together. Frost cupcakes.
