These Keto Pumpkin Muffin Minis are the perfect low carb breakfast muffins or a sugar-free Keto sweet snack that the whole family, even non-Keto-ers will love!
No one would ever know they were Keto friendly pumpkin muffins unless you told them! Don’t worry your secrets safe with me, so make a big batch for a grab-n-go easy low carb breakfast or take them to your next social event.
It took me longer to figure out what to call these than it did for me actually to make the recipe. These really could easily pass for Pumpkin donut holes too, so call them what you like, either way, they are delicious.
Keto Pumpkin Muffins With Almond Flour
The first step is to combine the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin spice, in a medium bowl.
For these Flourless muffin minis, I used Now foods Almond flour, which is my go-to for all recipes because it’s
raw, 100% pure
Naturally low in carbs.
Raw almond flour is about as healthy, and tasty as it gets. Now foods almond flour is a pantry staple alternative to bleached white flour for all of your Keto Recipes.
Keto Friendly Maple Syrup
Next, combine the eggs, sugar-free maple syrup, pumpkin puree, coconut oil, and vanilla. Stir the mixture until it’s nice and smooth, and then add it to the almond flour mixture and combine it all.
For the Syrup, you will want to use a sugar-free option. There are three options I recommend:
Lakanto Maple Flavored Sugar-Free Syrup- I prefer using this one in recipes because the consistency is spot on and the ingredients are gluten-free and sweetened with monk fruit which is a natural sugar substitute, Keto, Vegan and Paleo friendly! However, I don’t use this on on my Keto Pancakes because it has a bit of an after taste to me.
Choc Zero Syrup- Taste like the real deal on pancakes and has clean, guilt-free ingredients, but it’s a little thicker constancy. I think it would still work just fine in the recipe; however, I have not made this recipe using it so I can’t say for sure.
Walden Farms Pancake Syrup- You could put this syrup in an Aunt Jemima bottle and fool everyone. Although it has zero calories and is sugar-free, it doesn’t have the cleanest ingredients.
For this recipe I went with Lakanto Maple Flavored Sugar-Free Syrup P.S. You can use code "MERMAID" for a discount on all Lakanto Products)
Sugar-Free Pumpkin Muffins
Now, use a small cookie scoop or tablespoon to spoon the mixture into the mini muffin tin and bake them for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the mini muffins comes out clean.
I recommend setting another timer on your phone for 12 minutes so a few minutes before they are finished baking you can melt the butter in a saucepan and combine the Lakanto Powdered Sugar Substitute and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
As soon as the mini muffins are cool enough to handle dip the top of each Keto Pumpkin Muffin in the butter and then in the monk fruit and cinnamon mixture.
I prefer using Lakanto Powdered Sugar Substitute because it is zero calories, zero glycemic sweetener . It doesn’t have the aftertaste like swerve and other artificial sweeteners , made from Monk Fruit, non-GMO, No Maltodextrin , no Artificial flavoring , Vegan and Keto friendly.
If you don’t have a Keto friendly powdered sugar alternative, you can use a granulated sweetener instead. I have made the recipe both ways. Using the granulated is a little grittier, but they still taste just as good!
How to Store Keto Pumpkin Muffin Minis
Low Carb flourless Pumpkin muffins store very well. They taste so good when they are still warm so be sure to eat a one or a few before you portion them out for meal prep or take them to your social event! But you can actually leave them in a container on the counter for a few days, or in the fridge for about a week.
