Almond Butter

The mixture of nut butter with baking powder and egg helps create the structure for the muffins.

I chose almond butter because if its mild flavor. It’s barely noticeable once you add in the pumpkin, spices, etc.

Coconut Sugar

To keep these paleo, I used coconut sugar for the sweetener, though you can substitute with granulated white sugar or brown sugar if you aren’t trying to make it paleo. Coconut sugar does not have a coconut flavor. Coconut sugar comes from the sap of flower buds of coconut palm trees. The flavor is similar to caramelized brown sugar and works really well with the pumpkin pie spices.
