Muffins are my weakness…especially pumpkin muffins. One of my biggest fears when I went on KETO was I would have to give up my muffins, I mean they are normally not low carb. Thankfully that fear was put to rest with these AMAZING KETO Pumpkin Muffins.
The Swirl is EVERYTHING
It is no secret that I am all about anything and everything pumpkin spice. As much as I love a good plain pumpkin muffin to make these a little extra special I added a cream cheese swirl to the top. Isn’t just about anything better with a little cream cheese swirl?
I kept it super simple with just cream cheese, whipping cream, a little sweetener and some vanilla bean paste. I love it as it compliments the muffin perfectly without being overly sweet. Actually the tang from the cream cheese is my favorite part of each bite.
Options are good
If you wanted to take them to even another level you could add in some chopped pecans to the batter or the swirl. You could also add some pepitas to the top fo a little extra crunch.
I used vanilla bean paste for a little extra yummy but vanilla extract works great. You could also add in a little orange zest for a little bit of orange bite, which is always so yummy with pumpkin.
To get even crazier you could throw in some keto friendly chocolate chips for an extra decadent treat.
