Seasonal baking that’s healthy and delicious! Mini Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffin Bites! An easy, vegan, top 8 allergy-free recipe that’s kid-friendly, perfect for breakfast, snacking, or dessert! Bite-sized mini muffins at their best!
Chocolate chips, pumpkin, mini muffins, a combo made in food heaven! These chocolate chip pumpkin muffins are basically the seasonal iteration of the classic chocolate chip muffin, just with pumpkin and in tiny bite-sized form! Not to mention these mini muffins are gluten-free, vegan, top 8 allergy-free, and pretty darn healthy! Since they’re mini, these muffins are just perfect for little hands and/or satisfying that afternoon sweet tooth with just a “bite”!
When it comes to baked goods, adding chocolate chips is always a viable option. Better yet, adding MINI chocolate chips is even better! Without fail, Enjoy Life Foods‘ mini chocolate chips are my go-to baking chocolate for safe, trusted, top 14 allergy-friendly goodness! Did you know they’ve been stocking the specialty/health aisle in your grocery store and selling online to this food allergy and celiac community for 17 years?! (I guess that’s just more reason to throw in some chocolate to….everything you bake!)
Are these mini muffin bites really healthy enough for breakfast?
Of course! They’re totally sugar-free except for the 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips you’ll be using! No oil, no vegan butter. Just some go-to gluten-free baking flour, a big dose of pure pumpkin puree, pumpkin spices, non-dairy milk, a hint of vanilla extract, and you know…mini chocolate chips! So you, you can enjoy these chocolate chip pumpkin muffin bites for a quick on-the-go breakfast, an after school sweet snack, of a delicious delight after dinner!
Another great thing about these mini muffins is that they’re school-safe too! Perfect for any Halloween or fall-related classroom parties that may come up. Everyone will be able to enjoy a mini muffin bite (or two!). Pop a few in your child’s lunchbox too and they’ll be in for a wonderful sweet surprise when they open that box up! Even when you have food allergies, celiac disease, etc. you should be able to celebrate the Great American Pumpkin Season with delectable treats like this!
Are these muffin bites easy to make-head?
Yes! Just mix up the ingredients, bake the mini muffins, and then set them aside to completely cool on a wire rack. Then you can pop them in the freezer or just store in an air-tight container for 5-7 days. You can heat them in a toaster over or the microwave if they’re frozen (a warm melty chocolate chip pumpkin muffin, anyone?). This recipe makes a BIG batch of muffin bites so you’ll probably want to freeze some if you’re not making them for a party of gathering!
These gluten-free chocolate chip pumpkin muffin bites are so easy to make with minimal ingredients. They’re perfect to have on hand this season so as not to feel left out by all the seasonal pumpkin goodies that bombard the stores! You can get your allergy-free pumpkin fix (and chocolate fix) in one healthy, safe bite! You won’t be missing out on anything once you bake up a batch of THESE babies!
