  • muffin pan


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce


  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices). Stir until well combined. 
  • Add the pumpkin puree, the apple sauce, the olive oil, and the almond milk. Stir until well combined. 
  • Line a muffin pan with 12 paper liners and equally divide the batter. Preheat the oven to 350 °F. 
  • Bake the muffins for 18-20 minutes. Do a toothpick test to see if the muffins are done. 


  • As every oven is a bit different, it’s best to do a toothpick test to check if the muffins are done. Just stick a toothpick into the center of your muffin. If there is wet batter on the toothpick, your muffins need more time. If it comes out clean, they’re done!
  • I used homemade pumpkin puree, which I think tastes best. Making homemade pumpkin puree is super easy. However, you can also use store-bought canned pumpkin puree if you're short on time. 
  • I used all-purpose flour, but the recipe also works with whole wheat flour or spelt flour. 
  • Are you a chocolate fan? Then add some vegan dark chocolate chips to the muffin batter!
