Pumpkin Molasses Mini Muffins

Servings: 24 mini muffins


  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup canola or melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbs ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup blackstrap molasses
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 2/3 cup spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease mini muffin pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together canned pumpkin, water, canola or melted coconut oil, ground flaxseed, vanilla, molasses and sugar until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the spelt flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg with a wooden spoon.
  • Add wet ingredients to the dry and stir with the wooden spoon until just combined. Do not over mix. The batter will be fairly thick.
  • Divide the batter into the mini muffin pan, filling them about 3/4 of the way full.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 5-10 minutes, and then serve to your little ones! These also freeze well.
  • Variation: Add mini chocolate chips to the batter before baking.

    1. You are welcome! I’m really glad you are enjoying them! Thank you for sharing your feedback!

  2. These were delicious! I followed the recipe except I substituted 1/3 cup aquafaba instead of the oil and used 1/3 cup maple syrup instead of the sugar. They were still very sweet and tasty.

  3. Hi,
    I am wondering if I can use half GF flour and half GF oats for this recipe? Or just GF flour?

    1. This was so moist and flavorful and quick and easy to make! My kids love them and they have several food allergies so this was perfect . Thanks!

  4. Hello Nora! Can i ask you please, when you say canned pumpkin do you mean pumpkin puree?
