You can use a flour of your choice for these pumpkin muffins. However, try to avoid white flour. Whole wheat pastry flour will work if you do not have a gluten sensitivity. Otherwise, you can use a gluten-free flour or spelt, etc.

Without oil and eggs, you may find that the muffins aren't quite as moist as you're used to. If this is the case, you can add a 1/2 cup of applesauce!
