Chocolate Pumpkin Mini Muffins - Vegan, Gluten and Nut Free - And Kid Approved! They Loved these!


A recipe for my girls..............don't eat these if you are on the Candida diet. 

But if you have kids and need some gluten, dairy and egg free snacks then give these a try. 

My girls both loved them!

And I'm loving the chocolate and pumpkin combination these days............

Have a great Friday and Happy Thanksgiving!
