Is Pumpkin Keto?

Pumpkin is keto approved! Yes, it’s a squash and contains higher carbs compared to other keto approved vegetables. But there are 7 net carbs for 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree. This recipe contains 1 1/2 cups of pumpkin puree, so that amounts to 1.4 net carbs per keto pumpkin cream cheese muffin. To me, it’s worth it to sacrifice 1.4 gram carbs to be able to enjoy pumpkin flavor during the Fall months. a solo pumpkin muffin with sticks of cinnamon near by

Keto Maple Syrup

Much of the sweetener in the keto pumpkin muffin comes from the sugar-free maple syrup. In this recipe, I used a keto approved maple pecan syrup by ChocZero. Their line of low carb syrups are sugar-free and sugar alcohol free. I use them often in my keto baking. There are other sugar-free syrups available commercially, so feel free to use your favorite in this recipe. I do recommend using the sugar-free maple syrup because it adds moisture and a hint of maple flavor to this recipe. It’s a secret ingredient that other keto pumpkin cream cheese muffin recipes don’t have and it really amplifies the Fall flavor! So don’t skip it! keto pumpkin muffins sitting on a wire rack

Sugar Free Cream Cheese Frosting

The second part of these delicious keto pumpkin muffins is the sugar free cream cheese frosting. It’s easy to prepare and you have a couple of options when it comes to application. You can simply frost the top of the muffin by piping some on top using a pretty star tip or which ever piping tip you want to use. Or you can poke a hole in the center of the muffin and pipe in the keto cream cheese frosting into the center of the muffin. Then continue to pipe frosting on the outside to cover the hole. a piping bag next to pumpkin muffins

Macros Without the Cream Cheese Frosting

If you want to make these keto pumpkin muffins without the cream cheese frosting on top, the macros will be slightly different. I’m providing those because I have had a few people ask this question. For one muffin, Calories: 162 Fat: 12.7 g Net Carbs: 4.3 Protein: 4.1 g

Keto Muffin Storage

It’s best to store these pumpkin muffins in an air tight container so they don’t dry out. When you bake with keto sweeteners, they tend to dry out the baked good faster than regular sugar because they don’t hold on to moisture as well as regular sugar does.

    1. Hi Dawn! I am glad you liked it! And thank you for all of your positive comments throughout my recipes! They always make my day! Annie

  3. Absolutely AMAZING ! I haven’t tried any of your recipes that weren’t wonderful, but these are the best so far !

  4. I think this is my 3rd time making these. I thought I have left a comment before… Just wanted to say these are so yummy and I want to try some more of your recipes. I will say, it’s hard to tell when the muffins are done in the oven because they stay pretty dense and wet in the center, but once they have been refrigerated they seem fine. I kept mine in the oven a bit longer than stated. My two year old loves them too 🙂
