THE BEST KETO PUMPKIN MUFFINS
Out of all the keto pumpkin recipes you can make, this might be the best one. Not only are these pumpkin muffins incredibly delicious, but they're low carb and gluten free muffins as well.
Plus, they're incredibly simple and easy to make too. And, I don't know about you, but those are some of my favorite kinds of recipes.
Also, I've got a feeling that after you try these muffins you'll want to eat them all day long - at least that's what I end up doing when I make them.
- In the morning, they pair perfectly with this Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe.
- Mid-day, they're great as a quick snack.
- And after dinner, they make for a tasty dessert to have with a cold glass of milk.
Also, even though they taste the furthest thing from it, each one of these keto pumpkin muffins has just over 2.5 NET CARBS - and that carb count is tough to beat when it comes to making keto muffins.
Plus, they are as simple as it gets to make, and baking them with your family is such a fun fall activity!
Ok, you'll need quite a few ingredients for this keto pumpkin muffin recipe, but they are all baking staples.
And I wouldn't be surprised if you have everything you need in your kitchen already.
Here's what you'll need:
- 1 cup + 2 tbsp Almond Flour
- ⅓ cup Coconut Flour
- ½ cup Granular Swerve
- 1 tbsp Baking Powder
- 1 tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
- ¼ tsp Sea Salt
- 4 large Eggs
- ¾ cup Pumpkin Puree
- ⅓ cup Coconut Oil (melted)
- ¼ cup Butter (melted)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- ½ cup Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
If you don't have pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin puree on hand, make sure you pick up some extra.
You can use both to make a bunch of my other keto pumpkin recipes, like this Keto Pumpkin Pie!
KETO FLOURS TO USE
So, today we will be making almond flour pumpkin muffins - with a little coconut flour mixed in - to keep the muffins low carb.
And the combination of the two flours will give them a soft, dense texture with a tender crumb.
Now, with that said, the ratio of the flours used is essential for the best results, so follow my tips below for making any kinds of substitutions with them.
If you do not want to use almond flour, you can substitute it with an equal amount of either walnut flour or sunflower seed flour. Both have the same properties as almond flour and will keep these muffins gluten free and low carb.
However, I don't recommend substituting the coconut flour out with any other low carb flours. Unfortunately, coconut flour is super absorbent, and doesn't have the same properties as any other keto flours.
So, do not substitute almond flour for more coconut flour - it will make the muffins way too dry.
SWEETENING THESE KETO PUMPKIN MUFFINS
So, as you may have noticed in the ingredient list above, these are completely sugar free pumpkin muffins - at least there's no sugar added to them.
Instead of using sugar to sweeten these muffins up, I, of course, used Granulated Swerve. And what I love about Swerve is the fact that it has 0 calories and 0 carbs. It's also just as sweet as sugar, so using it as a sugar replacement in recipes is a breeze.
However, another sweetener that works just as well is Lakanto's Monk Fruit. Lakanto's Monk Fruit is essentially the same thing as Swerve, so you can substitute them 1:1 in any keto recipe
Now, another way we'll be adding sweetness to these sugar free muffins is by using some no sugar added chocolate chips.
I used Lily's Semi-Sweet chocolate chips for this recipe - they honestly taste pretty close to regular chocolate chips.
But, you can also use ChocZero's chocolate chips - they are a good option too for the keto diet.
HOW TO MAKE KETO PUMPKIN MUFFINS
Along with being the best-tasting keto pumpkin muffins, these are some pretty darn easy keto muffins you can make too.
Basically, you'll just need to follow a simple two-step process - mixing & baking - to whip these muffins up.
STEP 1: MAKING THE BATTER
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177°C) and line 10 muffin cups with muffin tins or parchment paper.
Then, stir together the coconut flour, almond flour, granular swerve, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and sea salt in a large bowl.
Next, in another bowl, mix the eggs, pumpkin puree, melted butter, coconut oil, and vanilla extract until they're completely incorporated.
So, now you can add the dry ingredients - along with the chocolate chips - to your bowl of wet ingredients, and stir well until a smooth batter forms.
STEP 2: BAKING THE MUFFINS
Once you have a batter, evenly spoon it into the prepared muffin cups and smooth out the tops. Also, you'll want to fill the cups about ¾ of the way full since the muffins will rise.
Then, bake your keto pumpkin muffins for about 30 minutes - or until a toothpick comes out clean.
After they bake to perfection, transfer the muffins to a wire rack to let them cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
STORING KETO PUMPKIN MUFFINS
As I mentioned earlier, this is a super fun recipe to make with your family. But fair warning, you might not have any leftovers when these muffins come out hot from the oven.
We usually make another batch or double the recipe, so we have some more keto pumpkin muffins for the rest of the week.
With that said, if you manage to save a few - or make extras - transfer the leftover muffins to an airtight container lined with paper towels. If you store them like this they will last for up to 2 days at room temperature!
Then, when you want to enjoy one, I recommend putting it in the microwave for a few seconds and topping off the warm muffin with a slab of butter.
And if you want to keep your muffins for longer, check out this article on the best way to freeze them.
