Paleo Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (Dairy Free)

I loveeee pumpkin spice season! I find great joy in all the pumpkin treats during fall. This recipe combines 3 of my favorites in one dessert: pumpkin, pecan, & cheesecake! Plus, it’s paleo friendly – so it’s gluten free, grain free, & dairy free!

These cupcakes are so freaking delicious, it’s hard to believe they’re paleo. Make them for Thanksgiving, fall parties throughout the season, girls night, or any occasion you’d want some cupcakes!
