Pumpkin Seed Flour Muffins

Yesterday I bought pumpkin seed flour for the first time. Before that, I had no clue it even existed! πŸ˜±Β πŸ˜†Β But knowing that there are tons of different flours like coconut flour, almond flour, oat flour, I wasn’t at all surprised that there is also pumpkin seed flour. After all, you can make flour from any type of nuts or seeds.


The flour I used for this recipe is store bought, but you can also make this flour yourself at home. Just grind pumpkin seeds in a coffee grinder or blender until they turn to a powder. What caught my attention the most is that this flour, thanks to the pumpkin seeds, has a vibrant green color.. unlike other flours, which are usually brown or white 😜


These yummy gluten-free muffins are light, fluffy and moist. They make the perfect breakfast or tea-time snack!
