The Autumn Harvest is upon us, and you know what that means? Pumpkins! Pumpkin-inspired foods and drinks are all around, from coffee shops to the grocery store, to your local farmer’s market and everywhere in-between. For medical cannabis patients, there’s no better way to incorporate a little pumpkin into your life than by enjoying these delicious, nutritious, and super easy to make Gluten-Free Cannabis Pumpkin Muffins.
Recipe for Gluten-Free Cannabis-Infused Pumpkin Muffins (or “Yum-kin Muffins”)
Ingredients for about 16 muffins:
- 3/4 cup cannabis butter, softened
- 1 egg
- ½ cup raw sugar
- 1 ½ cups 100% pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 1 tsp gluten-free pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose (AP) flour
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- Pinch sea salt
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In one mixing bowl combine the all-purpose flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt. Gently mix these dry ingredients together and set aside.
In another mixing bowl, combine softened cannabis butter with the egg. Add in raw sugar and pumpkin puree and mix everything together.
Gradually add the dry ingredients from the other mixing bowl and stir gently until all ingredients have been combined.
Scoop, by the rounded tablespoon into a muffin tin. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Check for doneness using a toothpick — when the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins are ready!
These muffins are best when served warm, topped with a little bit of cannabis butter and a few sprinkles of raw sugar if desired. The muffins can be stored in the freezer for up to 1 month in an air-tight container.
In addition to being gluten-free, the 100% pure pumpkin puree is loaded with fiber, vitamins, and minerals that help improve your digestion and boost your immunity — so eat up!
Note: The amount of cannabis butter specified in this recipe is a very loose suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your cannabutter and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky (click here to learn why), so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
