Embrace the autumn spirit with our Orange-Infused Pumpkin Muffins, featuring our orange flavored olive oil from Puglia, Italy. These lactose-free delights are a celebration of seasonal flavors, blending the richness of pumpkin with aromatic spices and a touch of dark chocolate.

As fall brings forth the bounty of pumpkins, enjoy the health benefits of this versatile vegetable. Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, pumpkins contribute to overall well-being. Paired with the warmth of cinnamon and nutmeg, our muffins are a wholesome treat for your taste buds.



Ingredients for 12 Muffins:

  • 8.8 oz cleaned pumpkin (cut into small dice)
  • 7 oz sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Zest of one orange
  • Nutmeg to taste
  • Ground cinnamon to taste
  • 2.5 oz potato starch
  • 8.8 oz all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 4.6 oz orange-flavored olive oil
  • 12 small pieces of dark chocolate



1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut the pumpkin into small dice and bake for 20 minutes. Once cooked, blend the pumpkin in a food processor until it becomes a smooth pulp.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin pulp with sugar and eggs. Mix thoroughly until well combined.

3. Grate the zest of one orange and add it to the mixture along with nutmeg, cinnamon, potato starch, flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt, and the orange-flavored olive oil. Mix until uniformly combined.

4. Prepare the muffin mold with liners. Spoon some of the mixture into each liner, add a piece of dark chocolate, and then top it off with more of the pumpkin mixture.

5. Place the filled muffin mold in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 20-25 minutes until the muffins are golden brown and cooked through.
