I've been dying to have pumpkin flavored bread since Fall has started. Since realizing how few carbs pumpkin puree has, I realized this Fall did not have to be boring. I could have all the pumpkin flavors I desired and still stay on the keto diet.
Oat fiber is my new favorite ingredient. No net carbs, high fiber and fluffs well for breads. It was the perfect ingredient for these keto pumpkin muffins. Add some cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, and it wasn't hard to get a good batch of muffins that would be perfect for Fall and Thanksgiving.
Oat fiber is hard to find in stores. Try out the oat fiber we use! You won't be disappointed! (We buy in bulk for a more economical purchase!)
These pumpkin muffins are somewhat dense, but not too bad, especially if you let them cool before serving. They are definitely high fiber, so don't go eating the whole batch without drinking some water or almond milk (unsweetened of course). They are also not too sweet, so if you are looking for something more like pumpkin cupcakes, you may want to double the stevia and erythritol.
Keto pumpkin muffins are now going to be a yummy breakfast for the next week, with a side of pumpkin spiced keto coffee, of course! Warm up in the microwave and top with butter. Or how about layering on some whipped cream cheese! A breakfast you previously thought was fatty and unhealthy was just made perfect for the keto diet!
Make sure to use cupcake tins for these muffins. Even with the psyllium husk fiber they still wanted to stick to the sides.
But, the longer you let these tasty pumpkin treats cool and rest, the less that sticks to the sides of the muffin wrappers. They also hold together better all around.
These would be a great treat to bring to a Fall girls brunch or luncheon, and no one will be the wiser that they are eating keto pumpkin muffins! I can't wait to cook these for Thanksgiving morning for my family. They will be so excited to have a sweet muffin that won't ruin their ketosis.
I'm also going to make sure to try these out in a small bread loaf pan so I can serve slices. And I think I may add some chopped walnuts to give a little crunch to these yummy breakfast treats.
