INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2/3 cup + 1 tbsp granulated erythritol sweetener,
  • 4 eggs large
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree, see notes
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice, see notes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a muffin pan.
  2. Cream the butter and 2/3 cup sweetener together in a large mixing bowl until it gets light and fluffy.
  3. One at a time put eggs, and to combine, mix well.
  4. Add the vanilla and pumpkin puree, and to combine, mix well.
  5. Stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, pumpkin spice, and salt in a separate bowl. Break up any lumps of coconut flour/almond flour.
  6. To wet ingredients, put dry ingredients, and to combine, stir. Into the prepared muffin tins, divide the batter.
  7. Stir together the softened cream cheese and 1 tbsp of sweetener in a small mixing bowl. To each muffin, add a generous tablespoon of softened cream cheese mixture. To swirl the batter and the cream cheese together, use the tip of a butter knife or a toothpick.
  8. Until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, bake for 20 – 25 minutes.

NOTES

  • You can warm it in the microwave for about 10-20 seconds before mixing it in if you have trouble swirling in the cream cheese mixture.
  • To the cream cheese, I add 1 tbsp of sweetener, but for a sweeter taste, some readers like it with 2-3 tbsp.
  • At room temperature/slightly chilled, I liked these best. In the fridge, store in an airtight container.
