Calling all the pumpkin spices lovers with this new keto diet recipe!
The original pumpkin muffin recipe is not suitable on a keto diet. In fact, most pumpkin muffins from the store contain sugar, white whole-wheat flour and both are high in carbs. So let me share with you how to make delicious keto low-carb pumpkin muffins that are moist, flavorsome, and low in carbs.
To make healthy pumpkin muffins low in carbs, you need to use wholesome gluten-free flours and sugar-free sweeteners, also known as sugar alcohols. Following is what you need to make this keto pumpkin muffins recipe:
The trick to making the best pumpkin muffins with keto flours is to measure the flours precisely. In fact, keto flours are high in fiber and if you add a little too much of them, the muffins will be too dense, dry, and not as good. I recommend the scoop, pack, level method to fill your cups and to always use US standard cups in my recipes.
Simply whisk all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl, to avoid lumps.

The liquid ingredients must be at room temperature for this recipe. This is an easy pumpkin muffin recipe but if you want to succeed the temperature of ingredients matters.
In fact, cold eggs or almond milk lumps melted coconut oil or too hot coconut oil will cook your eggs! So prepare the ingredients 1 hour before starting to ensure they are all at the same temperature. All you need in this recipe are pretty simple:
This recipe fills a 12-muffin-cup tin. Since they are moist pumpkin muffins, it’s easier if you line the muffin pan with paper liners. It will be much easier to release each muffin.
Bake the muffins in the center rack of a preheated oven at 350F (180C). I recommend baking the muffins for 20 minutes, then insert a skewer in the center of one muffin and if the center comes out clean, they are ready to remove from the oven.
Otherwise, keep baking for an extra 10 minutes. In general, it takes between 20 – 30 minutes max to bake the 12 muffin tin.
You can add many keto-friendly toppings on top of your prepared muffins. Cool the muffins down before adding any toppings. The best keto toppings are:
You can add so many keto-friendly ingredients in this recipe to turn this easy keto pumpkin spice muffins recipe into an even better one! If you want to make:
The addition of sugar-free chocolate chips will raise the net carbs per serving more than a cream cheese swirl. It’s up to you to choose what you prefer and what match your daily macro the best!
These keto low carb pumpkin muffins contain pumpkin puree and eggs. It means that they store longer in the fridge. I recommend storing the muffins in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 7 days. Otherwise, you can freeze the muffins and thaw them on the countertop at room temperature the day before eating.
If you can’t find ready-made pumpkin spices in the store, make your own at home. The recipe below is for 3 teaspoons of pumpkin spices. Use this recipe to swap the 3 teaspoons of pumpkin spices recommended in the recipe.
