Keto Pumpkin Muffins with Walnut Streusel Topping

Kate APosted by

At our house, we always kick off October with pumpkin muffins. The recipes have changed over the years, and this Keto Pumpkin Muffins with Walnut Streusel Topping might be my favorite. The texture of these muffins seem like a muffin you’d make from regular white flour.

You can’t tell they’re low carb at all. They’re moist, not too dense, and taste like fall. The crumble topping has walnuts for some extra crunch, and a butter/faux sugar mixture that just set these muffins apart.

This recipe makes 12 regular sized muffins. You can make mini muffins as well, just decrease the baking time to 11-13 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup swerve, or any other sugar replacement
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • Walnut Streusel Topping
    • ¼ cup almond flour
    • ¼ cup swerve, another sugar replacement
    • 4 tbsp. butter, cold and diced into small pieces
    • 3 tbsp. walnuts, chopped
    • ½ tsp cinnamon

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the almond flour, swerve, cinnamon and walnuts in a small bowl. Add the butter and use a fork or your fingers to work the butter into the mixture. It should look like wet sand once it’s combined.

In a larger bowl, add all the other ingredients and mix well.

Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. Fill with batter, about 2/3 of the way full. Sprinkle some of the streusel mixture on top.

Place the muffins in the oven for 23-26 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.

Enjoy while they’re still warm!
