Ingredients for Keto Pumpkin Muffins
You’ll need just a few easy to find ingredients to make these delicious sugar-free pumpkin muffins.
- Almond Flour & Coconut Flour: It’s mandatory to use a blend of these two keto flours to get the best texture. I tried making keto pumpkin muffins with coconut or almond flour alone, but I found them too dense and heavy. So, a mixture of these two creates the best texture without having to add tons of eggs.
- Pumpkin Puree: use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. Make sure to read the ingredients list to avoid any added sugars that may come with canned pumpkin. Alternatively, you can make homemade pumpkin puree and use it to make delicious sugar free pumpkin muffins.
- Pumpkin Spice: I usually make a big batch of pumpkin spice to have on hand and sprinkle it on about every meal I have. To replace pumpkin spice, just use cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger powder, and allspice. Super flavorful.
- Butter: This key ingredient adds that buttery flavor and makes these muffins moist and delicious. You can substitute the butter with coconut oil and make these muffins paleo-friendly.
- Eggs: Use 4 large eggs or 5 medium eggs for a fluffy texture.
- Sweetener: I used ½ cup granulated Erythritol, but you can use more depending on your taste. Monk fruit is also a suitable sweetener for these low carb pumpkin muffins.
How to Make Keto Pumpkin Muffins
If you made any of my recipes, you know that I’m all for easy to make keto recipes to fit into any busy schedule. The grain-free pumpkin muffins are no exception, and the preparation will take about 10 minutes.
- Start by mixing the butter and sweetener until light and fluffy.
- Add the eggs, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract and mix until well incorporated.
- Then stir in the almond flour coconut flour, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice. Expect a thick batter. You can add a few tablespoons of almond milk if the batter is extremely thick.
- Fill 12 muffin cups with the delicious pumpkin mixture and bake for about 25 minutes or until the muffins are golden and smell amazing. You may want to keep an eye on them and adjust the baking time if needed.
Tips and Variations
- Incorporate some sugar-free chocolate chips or chopped chocolate into the batter.
- Add crushed nuts such as walnuts or pecans for some extra crunch.
- Use room temperature eggs to reduce that eggy flavor.

Thank you so much for these soo good! Nice and fluffy! 2 wks on keto i needed these in my life!
Just made a batch and they turned out great. Made 12 good sized muffins. Not too sweet but would be good with a glaze or cream cheese icing. Tasted great warmed up with some butter!
Granddaughter Approved! She says I have to make them for Christmas. I followed the recipe except I substituted coconut oil for the butter. My husband won’t eat anything with a buttery taste. It’s really hard to slip it past him. I used a small cookie scoop and mini muffin pan. Made over 48 mini muffins. Added 3 Lily’s chocolate chips to some for my grandkids. Great recipe. Thanks
The photo looks like there is a glaze (or icing) on top of the muffins. What is the recipe for that?
These are pretty good made everyone liked them but waiting for them to cool off completely so they maybe won’t fall apart but taste good anyway
So delicious! I’m deathly afraid of baking but managed to make these and it turned out perfect. Will try with coconut oil next time, as someone else suggested. Topped it with your cream cheese frosting. Will make again.
