Ingredients For Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes
For these delicious low carb pumpkin cheesecake cupcakes, you need just a few simple ingredients that are cheap and very accessible:
For The Crust:
- Almond Flour – Almond flour is one of the best keto flour. It’s low-carb, packed with protein, healthy monounsaturated fats, and other essential nutrients like Vitamin E and Manganese. And most importantly, it works great as a flour substitute.
- Sweetener – When it comes to sweeteners, you can choose your favorite one. Mine are Eryhtitol, Allulose, or Monk Fruit. For the crust, I used granular erythritol.
- Butter – Gives that great buttery flavor to the crust.
- Salt – Salt helps to balance the tastes and keeps your muffins from becoming overly sugary.
For The Filling
- Cream Cheese – Softened full-fat cream cheese is the key in this recipe.
- Sweetener – for the filling, I use a powdered sweetener as it blends easily.
- Eggs – They act as a binder and soften the texture of our muffins.
- Vanilla Extract – For a boost of flavor.
- Pumpkin Puree – Make sure that your pumpkin puree contains only one ingredient: Pumpkin. If you’re not sure which one to get, we are here to help you. Take a look at our guide on How to Roast Pumpkin and Make Pumpkin Puree.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice – The key is to use a mix that does not have any added sugar. Or you can make your mix at home.
How To Make Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes
Following these simple steps, these almond flour pumpkin cheesecake cupcakes bites will completely satisfy your sweet tooth and definitely impress your guests.
We’ll start by making the crust for our mini keto pumpkin cheesecakes:
- Add all the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl. Stir them together, making sure to get all the lumps out. Then add the melted butter and mix well to combine.
- Divide between 12 cupcakes.
- Bake them for about 5-8 minutes until it starts to brown.
Make The Filling:
- To make the cheesecake filling, you’ll want to start with cream cheese at room temperature. If your cream cheese is too cold, it will be lumpy, and mixing will not remove the lumps.
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl except the pumpkin.
- Use 2/3 of the cream to fill the cupcake pan. Add pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice to the remaining cream cheese mixture and combine well.
- To assemble the cheesecakes, add a layer of cheesecake filling and top with the pumpkin mixture.
- Bake them until a toothpick can be poked into the center and come out cleanly for about 20-25 minutes.
Tips For Making Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes
- Room temperature ingredients always ensure a smoother and creamier filling without lumps.
- It is a great idea to separate your dry ingredients from your liquid ingredients while mixing, and that’s because you don’t want to have any lumps in your muffins.
How To Store These Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes
- These Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes can be stored nicely in the fridge for about a week. Simply place them in an airtight container and, if possible, towards the back of the refrigerator.
- If you want to freeze them, place the cupcakes on a clean plate, then wrap tightly with plastic wrap before placing them in a ziplock bag. Freeze for up to a month; any longer will cause the flavor and texture to deteriorate. When you want to eat them, make sure to take them out of the freezer a few hours before consuming them.
