Pumpkin Almond Muffins (Gluten-Free)

This week I’m featuring the Pumpkin Almond Muffins from my cookbook! These might just be my favorite muffins ever.  They’re lightly sweet, supremely tender and they make my house smell incredible.  Plus, they get made right in the food processor!  You might have noticed that I’m on a mission to streamline my baked goods (see these Blueberry Blender Muffins as a prime example). …
