Low Carb Mini Pumpkin Muffins
My mini muffin pan badly needs replaced so I went with my mini cupcake maker instead and they turned out beautifully,
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup butter melted
1/4 cup unsweetened unflavored yogurt
5 eggs beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup granulated sweetener ( like swerve or ideal)
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp double acting baking powder
Prepare your cupcake pan and while it's warming up you can beat together your wet ingredients. Next sift together your dry ingredients and add to the wet ingredients taking care to blend well. Then allow mixture to set for at least five minutes, this will give the coconut flour time to absorb the liquids before filling each cupcake hole 3/4 full. Then bake for approx 8 minutes or until done. Muffins can be eaten with or without topping, I topped mine with a little cream cheese frosting.
* Note these muffins can also be baked in the oven. Just preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake for approx. 15 minutes or until done.
