Pumpkin almond muffins with cinnamon frosting – paleo & vegan

pumpkin muffins

The second recipe you can find in my sweet snacks pumpkin edition video is a vegan and paleo muffin recipe.

These muffins are really moist and the combination of pumpkin with sweet spices and almonds makes them the perfect Sunday afternoon tea time treat. They are also great to have for breakfast. Packed with healthy fats, good carbs and a fair amount of protein they are a great snack for in between, after or before your workout or even as late night snack.

I dare you to try those delicious muffins – and if you love pumpkin, definitely give my pumpkin cinnamon cups a go!
