Muffins are one of my favorite grab-and-go breakfasts. I love how easy they are to make and how easy they are to store if you make them ahead of time.

Pumpkin is an awesome way to flavor a muffin, especially if you’re following a low carb diet.  And if you’re a fan of all things pumpkin this recipe is a great option for you. It’s moist yet sturdy, with just the right amount of sweetness.

And the chocolate chips in these keto pumpkin muffins certainly don’t hurt! 🙂

What ingredients do I need to make pumpkin muffins?

Almond Flour – I like to go with a superfine blanched almond flour (not almond meal). Blue Diamond is my preferred brand.

Brown Sweetener – Brown Swerve and Golden Lakanto are both excellent options. I think brown sweetener gives a greater depth of flavor, but regular erythritol could work too.

Pumpkin Pie Spice – You can make your own by mixing together cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg, but I usually like to go as simple as possible and buy the pre-made spice container.

Vanilla Extract

Pumpkin Puree – Here’s where our pumpkin flavor comes from. You can either make it yourself by roasting, scooping, and pureeing a fresh pie pumpkin, or just by grabbing a can from the store.

Eggs – This recipe uses large eggs.

Cream Cheese – Cream cheese helps contribute to the moisture and structure of these muffins.

Baking Powder – This gives our keto pumpkin muffins their rise. Be sure to check the date on your baking powder…the fresher the better!

Sugar Free Chocolate Chips – These take the muffins to the next level. I used Lily’s Semisweet Chocolate Chips and they were perfect!

These muffins are AMAZING. Super moist. I used Monkfruit golden but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Couldn’t recommend more
