Paleo-ish Pumpkin Muffins

hey guys! i just wanted to pop in and share this delicious recipe with you today. i've been experimenting baking with almond flour and coconut flour lately, and these muffins were one of my best successes. they were such a hit in my house that in less than 24 hours, only 3 of them are left! even my mom, the queen of baked goods, loved them.

you can easily make this recipe paleo by swapping out the brown sugar & almond milk with pure maple syrup - i just didn't have any on hand. i do have to say the best way to defeat the purpose of this paleo baked good is to eat one warm with a scoop of sunflower butter and vanilla ice cream, though!
