How To Make Keto Pumpkin Spice Muffins
Preheat. Start off by preheating your oven to 315 degrees F. While you’re doing that, line a 12-count muffin pan with cupcake liners.
Mix. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, Lakanto sweetener, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and salt.
Add. Add in the pumpkin puree, eggs, and melted butter and beat with an electric hand mixer on high until well combined.
Transfer. Transfer the batter to the prepared muffin pan and press evenly to make it smooth on top.
Bake. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool completely in the muffin pan.
Serve and enjoy!
Can I Substitute Canned Pumpkin For Pumpkin Puree?
You can certainly substitute canned pumpkin for pumpkin puree if that’s what you prefer or if that’s what you have on hand!
The ratios are the same as well. This recipe calls for ¾ cup of pumpkin puree, which means it would be ¾ cup of canned pumpkin if you go that route.
Do Pumpkin Muffins Need To Be Refrigerated?
No, they do not. Actually, do not even put them in the refrigerator.
The cool air and temperature from the fridge will cause the muffins to dry out rather than staying moist.
How To Store Pumpkin Muffins?
There are multiple ways to keep your freshly baked muffins moist and fresh.
The first method is freezing them. This works well because you can keep them stored in the freezer for a while and whenever you want one, you can just pull it out and let it thaw! Place them in a single layer in an airtight container over a paper towel and then cover them with a paper towel as well.
The next method is storing them in a lidded container. First, line the bottom of the container with a paper towel. After placing the muffins on top of the paper towel, cover the muffin tops with a paper towel as well. The paper towels will absorb the moisture which will make sure the tops of your muffins don’t get soggy and sticky. This method will keep your muffins moist and fresh for 2-3 days.
Another way to store them is to just leave them on the wire rack. This method is best when you’re baking them to be eaten the next day or morning. Just cover the muffins with a tea towel while they sit out. This is a great method to help keep your muffins fresh overnight!
