Ingredients

  • 2 cups Almond Flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup Butter, unsaled melted
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup Erythritol or sweetener

Filling

  • 3 oz Cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons Erythritol or sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, blend the pumpkin and eggs (I used a whisk) until thoroughly blended.
  • Add the butter and continue to blend.
  • Combine the dry ingredients with the pumpkin mixture, add the water and mix well.
  • Mix the filling ingredients together until smooth and blended.
  • Lin a muffin tin with paper cases.
  • Spoon the pumpkin mixture into the cups about 2/3 of the way up.
  • Make a "well" in the mixture. I used a small spoon to do this, pushing the mixture around the sides.
  • Place about a teaspoon of the cream cheese filling into your "well" in the muffin mixture.
  • Cover the centre with the rest of the muffin mixture, smoothing it over if required.
  • Bake for 25 -30 minutes, until the top of the muffin is firm.
