Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie Muffins

     Every year during the holidays my family requests these pumpkin pie muffins. They are Rick's favorite and apparently they are also Declan's.

     Having family members that are allergic to various foods makes coming up with recipes that everyone enjoys a bit of a challenge. THM has made more options available with the use of specialty ingredients such as almond milk, coconut flour and sprouted flours as well as being friendly to type 2 diabetes that runs both on Rick's side and mine.

Pumpkin Pie Muffins
These are made with sprouted whole wheat flour and sugar free sweetener which makes them wonderful for not spiking blood sugars and satisfying the craving for sweet baked goods.

The recipe:
