Muffins are a great way to pack the seasonal flavors of fall into a few yummy bites. Now carrots might not be a staple in fall, but they do go well together in these gluten-free pumpkin carrot muffins. Pumpkin and carrot create a great duo in muffins due to their complementary flavors and textures. The pumpkin contributes a warm earthy sweetness while the carrots add a mild natural sweetness and a pleasant crunch. Be sure to check out our suggested fall pairing at the bottom!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with liners or grease to prevent sticking.
In a large bowl whisk together wet ingredients: pumpkin puree, eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla extract. Set aside. In a second large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: gluten-free flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and both types of sugar. Set aside. Combine bowls of wet and dry ingredients and mix together thoroughly. Fold in the carrots, walnuts, and raisins.
Fill each lined muffin tin with batter to the top then sprinkle with rolled oats. Bake in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes. Check the batter with the toothpick method. Once removed from the oven, let the muffins sit in the tin for an additional 3 – 5 minutes. Buon Appetito!

For a muffin pairing, we always like to think of something that is refreshing and easy to drink. Nothing too heavy otherwise the texture might be off. That is why we think an apple cider mezcal margarita is a good pairing for these gluten-free pumpkin carrot muffins. We love our margaritas, and a fall margarita is always a staple in this cozy season for us.
