"Yummy, moist gluten-free pumpkin muffins with a drizzle of icing. Our gluten-free son love these as a treat. Substitute soy milk for dairy milk, if preferred."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 18 muffin cups.
  2. Whisk tapioca flour, brown rice flour, white rice flour, sorghum flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Mix pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, milk, and 1/4 cup melted butter in a separate bowl; beat for 2 minutes. Gradually mix dry ingredients into pumpkin mixture to make a smooth batter; scoop batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them 3/4 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until muffins are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool muffins on wire racks.
  4. Stir confectioners' sugar with 1/4 cup melted butter in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Stir milk into the glaze, about 1 teaspoon at a time, until the glaze is thin and runny. Drizzle glaze on top of cooled muffins.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

These are pretty good. They still taste like they are missing something.

No need to buy all different flours. 2 cups of gluten free multi purpose flour works wonderful! The muffin itself is not sweet enough so I used the icing which I thought was necessary. It made 1...

Very good. My kids loved them!! I used tapioca flour in place or sorghum flour, and they tasted no would never know they're gluten free!

These are delicious and kid-approved. My 3-year old loves these for breakfast or anytime. I keep a batch on hand in my freezer. Instead of the mix of flours listed, I use 1 3/4 C all-purpose GF ...

These muffins turned out great even at the high altitude. I did not make the glaze. Without it the muffins are mildly sweet. They did make very tasty cupcakes with my vegan buttercream frosting....

Tried these the other day and I liked them. I used the flours as written but had to sub out canned pumpkin because it isn't available to me. I made my own. I found the muffins to be good but ...

Came out wonderful! Everyone loves them. I also used my all purpose gluten free flour mix (2cups) for ease and added some maple syrup to the glaze. They tastes great!

I made this for my son, who has celiac disease. I was pleased with the muffins, but used a gluten free flour mix instead of the different flours. I didn't use any baking soda, as I've had poor l...

This was a solid base recipe for gf muffins, and the other reviewers were right; not too sweet but you'll come back to it again & again. Texture and crumb were very similar to wheat flour muffin...
