Total Time40 mins
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup sweetener, such as Swerve 1/2 to 3/4 cup depending on how sweet you prefer
- 2 cups blanched almond flour, finely ground
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
- 3/4 cup sugar-free chocolate chips
- 4 oz cream cheese room temperature
- 2 tbsp heavy cream
- 2 tbsp powdered sweetener, such as Swerve Confectioners
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the eggs, pumpkin puree, vanilla, sweetener, and almond milk in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly using a hand-held or standing mixer.
In another bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and combine well with a mixer or spatula.
Pour in 1/2 cup of the sugar-free chocolate chips. Save the rest to sprinkle on top.
Prepare a muffin tin with liners or grease with butter. Place 2 tablespoons of batter in the bottom of each muffin tin round.
Cream Cheese Filling
Mix together the cream cheese, heavy cream, and powdered sweetener with a mixer for about 2 minutes.
Spoon a rounded teaspoon of cream cheese mixture on top of the batter in each muffin.
Top each muffin evenly with the rest of the muffin batter. Then sprinkle the tops with the remaining sugar-free chocolate chips.
Bake in the 325-degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes then remove the muffins to racks to cool completely.
*TIP* If you don't want to deal with the filling simply blend the 4 oz of cream cheese in with the wet ingredients and leave out the extra heavy cream and sweetener. Mix the wet and dry ingredients and fill the muffin cups about 3/4 full to bake. This makes delicious and moist pumpkin spice muffin, just without the filling.
