Chickpea flour pumpkin muffins

Because it's so cold here, all I want is to curl on a couch, covered with a blanket and eating pumpkin and pumpkin pie spiced foods.
And these muffins are perfect for this!
They are perfectly spiced, moist from the pumpkin, fluffy and they go really well by themselves, or with some coffee, plant milk, vegan yogurt, tea... The choice is only yours.
Seriously, everything pumpkin is delicious, but these muffins are not only healthy and oil free, but quite high in protein because of the whole wheat flour, chickpea flour and nut butter.
So they can be eaten for breakfast as well, because they're really satiating. And 2 or 3 muffins for breakfast sound quite good for me.
Also, they are pretty easy to make. You can use just a bowl and dump everything in there. Mix well, pour in muffin pan (lined with muffin liners if you don't have a silicone one)
It's easy to make delicious vegan food, guys!

Ok, the recipe now:


Ingredients (makes about 16 muffins):
Dry ingredients:
- 150 g (1.5 cups) whole wheat flour
- 100 g (1 cup) chickpea flour
- 115 g (1/2 cup) unrefined brown sugar (you may want to add more sweetener if you want really sweet muffins)
- 10 g (2 tsp) baking powder
- 3-4 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/8 tsp salt

Wet ingredients:
- 350 g (1.33 cup) pumpkin puree
- 125 g (1/2 cup) peanut butter
- 2 flax or chia eggs (2 tbsp ground flax or chia seeds + 6 tbsp water)
- 365 ml (1.5 cups) plant milk of choice (I prefer unsweetened soy milk)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract


Method:
Preheat your oven to medium-high heat for a minimum of 15 minutes.
In a bowl mix all your dry ingredients, then add your wet ingredients and mixeverything well.
Be careful not to overmix your batter.
Pour your batter into your muffin pan lined with muffin liners (I use muffin liners because I don't have a silicone tray/pan) and bake them for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean, on medium-high heat.
Let them cool then you can enjoy them :)

Substitutions:
Any nut butter instead of peanut butter (sunflower butter, almond, cashew...)
Sweetener of choice instead of the unrefined brown sugar
Gluten free flour instead of the whole wheat. You can add oat flour (really fine), or gluten free flour of choice, but it won't be as fluffy, sorry 😔


You can also make a little bit of frosting for them :)

Also, you have a video for these beauties too:
