- ONE tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- ((we used Lily’s)1/3 cup sugar free chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon chopped pecans
- PREP MUFFIN PAN AND PREHEAT OVEN: Preheat the oven to 375ºF. With parchment paper liners, grease or line a 12 pan muffin tin and with coconut oil, grease (otherwise they will stick to the liners so it’s important to grease them ).
- MIX THE WET INGREDIENTS: Beat the eggs in a large bowl until it gets fluffy then add the vanilla, nut butter, low carb sweetener, coconut oil, milk and pumpkin puree. Mix well until it gets fully combined.
- ADD THE DRY INGREDIENTS: Stir in the baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and almond flour and mix until it gets combined. The nuts and chocolate chips, fold in .
- DIVIDE BATTER: Between the prepared muffin tins, divide the batter evenly (I use a large cookie scoop) and top with extra chocolate chips/pecans.
- BAKE: For 17-19 minutes, bake in preheated oven or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of a muffin .
From oven, remove pan and for 10 minutes, allow the muffins to cool in pan
