When it’s fall (ya’ll) [sorry-had to be done by a Southerner such as myself] 😆 everybody goes bonkers for pumpkin spice, and these keto pumpkin muffins should definitely be in your saved + often-used recipe collection. And I get it–it’s (hopefully where you live) starting to cool down, 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. 😉)
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 in case you veer either way, because that one option will determine baking time.
So warm up some unsweetened coconut (or almond) milk and enjoy! 🍂
Cozy Keto Pumpkin Muffins
- 4 eggs large
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, canned
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 4 TBSP coconut oil melted
- 1 tsp stevia liquid OR 1/3 cup erythritol (Swerve brand works great)
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 6 TBSP coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup pepitas, for topping (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Line your muffin tin with liners (paper tend to stick unless you spray with oil).
- Whisk together eggs, pumpkin, vanilla, stevia (or erythritol), coconut oil, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium-sized bowl.
- In a small bowl, mix together the coconut flour, salt, and baking powder. Then whisk into the pumpkin batter.
- Evenly divide the mixture in the 6-muffin tin cups.
- Bake 22-25 minutes (using stevia as the sweetener), or (27-29 minutes using erythritol as the sweetener).
- Muffins are ready when a toothpick comes out clean.
- Pop muffins onto a towel or cooling rack, and let them cool completely for optimal fluffy texture.
