These pumpkin spice muffins are free of gluten, dairy, eggs, and sugar.

These pumpkin spice muffins are deliciously moist and sweetened with dates. Dates are high in fibre with almost 7 grams of fibre in a 3.5 ounce servings. Dates promote regular bowel movements and are beneficial for blood sugar control. Fibre slows down digestion and helps blood sugar levels from spiking too high after eating. Dates also contain many minerals that are essential for good health. Magnesium, potassium, copper, manganese, iron and vitamin B6. I love using dates in baking as a natural sweetener. Making a date paste, mixing dates with some hot water and blending them is a great way to add them to baking. When using dates in my baked goods I am able to omit using refined sugar.

 

If you like these muffins and you love pumpkin give my pumpkin, chocolate chips cookies a try.
