Looking for egg free muffins that are still tasty? Try these Egg Free Chia Pumpkin Molasses Muffins. Baking with chia can be a real pain in the you know what. Every time I try to cook without eggs I find myself wish I could add them so bad. But I know lots of people have a sensitivity to eggs so I like to try to make things for them. I made these Egg Free Chia Pumpkin Molasses Muffins for my dad and grandpa when I visited in August. They scarfed them down very quickly and didn’t seem to notice that they were egg, grain, dairy and gluten free.
Please note: If you can eat eggs please find another recipe because you probably will like that better. These are designed for people who can’t tolerate eggs or who are vegan. I love pumpkin because it is low in carbs and full of magnesium and also soluble fiber that is healing for the gut because it feeds beneficial bacteria in the colon. Pumpkin is so great in my many Paleo recipes such as: salads pancakes, soups and breads.
Egg Free Chia Pumpkin Molasses Muffins
Ingredients: 6 tbsp chia seeds 1 13 oz can pumpkin 3 tbsp honey 1 tbsp molasses 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (gluten free) 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1/2 cup grass fed butter or coconut oil, melted 1/2 cup coconut flour 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1/2 tsp cinnamon (Always use organic ingredients whenever possible)
For a lower carb version: Try removing the honey and molasses and adding 1 tsp of stevia powder extract. Many of my readers request Paleo bread recipes. Try this cookbook: Paleo Bread: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Paleo-Friendly Bread Recipes

Caitlin, could I use flaxseed meal instead of chia? Not heading to the store soon but these muffins sound delish, so I want to try them!
Caitlin Weeks says
Yes it would be the same. Don’t eat flax too often it is not that great. Glad to hear from you!
