Chocolaty Pumpkin Muffins with Zucchini



I?d say muffins are my thing, because this vegan pumpkin muffins recipe is the 23rd muffin recipe on my blog! So, you might also call it a muffin blog Just kidding!
Watch tutorial video further down!
I?m so into muffins, because they make an excellent go-to snack that are easily made in big batches and then frozen to be conveniently grabbed whenever needed.

Last year, when I started vegan Candida diet, I created the first pumpkin muffins recipe suitable for Candida menu plan. Needless to say, they turned out super yummy! However, this time I wanted my pumpkin muffins to have chocolaty flavour. Therefore, I added carob and cocoa for comforting and hearty chocolate taste without compromising with wholesomeness.
I still remember the times when I thought of muffins as something you could only eat very rarely and feeling guilty afterwards. Instead, when using wholesome ingredients, muffins can actually be healthy food to be enjoyed every day. Thus, my vegan pumpkin muffins recipe uses whole grains instead of refined ones and pumpkin puree instead of oil or butter. Furthermore, the recipe doesn?t include refined sugar, but birch xylitol, which can also be substituted with other natural sweeteners. I only use xylitol or stevia not to risk with getting Candida overgrowth again.

To sum it up, my chocolaty pumpkin muffins recipe is vegan, plant-based, gluten-free, oil-free, low-fat, refined sugar free and Candida diet friendly (not for those on the cleanse though).
