Ingredients

  • FOR THE MUFFIN BATTER
  • 1½ cups blanched almond flour

  • ½ tsp baking soda

  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg

  • ¼ tsp ground ginger

  • ⅛ tsp ground cloves

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter (or coconut oil if dairy- free), softened

  • ½ cup Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener or equivalent amount of liquid or powdered sweetener

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin puree

  • FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FILLING
  • 1 (227g/8oz package cream cheese, softened

  • ¼ cup Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener or equivalent amount of liquid or powdered sweetener

  • 1 large egg yolk

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F. Grease or place paper liners in 6 wells of a standard-size muffin pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter, sweetener, eggs, and pumpkin until smooth.
    Combine the wet and dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
    Fill the prepared muffin cups about two-thirds full with the batter.
  • To make the filling, beat the cream cheese in a mediumsized mixing bowl with a hand mixer until smooth. Beat in the sweetener, egg yolk, and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined. Top each muffin with about 1 tbsp of the cream cheese filling and swirl it into the batter with a toothpick.
  • Bake the muffins for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan.
    Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat for 5 minutes on a baking sheet in a preheated 180°C/350°F oven, or until warmed through.
