Oil Free Vegan Pumpkin Muffins

Definitely the best vegan oil free pumpkin muffins I have ever tried, soft and moist and perfectly spiced.

Vegan pumpkin muffins are perfect for the fall but I love my pumpkin year round. Full of healthy nutrients, and incredible flavor from the warming spices make these muffins irresistible. But you don’t have to resist these light and fluffy delights. I could eat the whole batch of these and not even blink an eye. These are fabulous for brunch and school snacks.

What you need to make these Pumpkin Muffins

  • Muffin pan
  • Pumpkin puree, not pie filling
  • Pumpkin spice blend or make your own
  • baking powder to make this light and fluffy
  • plant-based milk
  • flour

This recipe is perfect for beginners and new vegans. It’s easy to make and you don’t need any fancy ingredients and it almost no fail. The pumpkin in these muffins make the moist and delicious. You can sprinkle sugar on top or top with icing but I love them plain. They are oil free, you can swap out some of the brown sugar for applesauce.
