When it’s fall (ya’ll) 😆 everybody goes bonkers for pumpkin spice, and these keto pumpkin muffins, which are anti-inflammatory, gluten-free, and sugar-free, should definitely be in your saved + often-used recipe collection.
And I get it–it’s (hopefully where you live) starting to cool down for fall, and that crisp snuggly feeling should be crankin’ up!
The only thing is… when we think of ‘cozy’ things, it usually veers in dramatically different directions: Either heavier soups and stews (savory), or warm, sweet breads (sweets direction).
Lucky for you, I’ve got the sweet covered with a fiber-filled, pumpkin-spice loaded muffin that is sugar-free, and also has the added benefit of being a great after-dinner snack (if you add on the pumpkin seeds–they contain melatonin. 😉)
Check out seasonal anti-inflammatory foods for fall HERE.
Now, I know some of us like stevia, some prefer erythritol, some like monk-fruit, and on and on. So I put 2 options in the directions to accommodate for either choice, because that one option will determine baking time.
So warm up some unsweetened coconut (or almond) milk and enjoy! 🍂
