It’s that time of year where I’m eating pumpkin-everything, and these low carb pumpkin muffins are one of my FAVES!
Are you ready to FALL in love?? Let’s start!
This low carb pumpkin muffin recipe is absolutely perfect for a quick fall snack:
- Ready in under 30 minutes! Less, if you don’t wait for them to cool before eating, ha!
- That sweet pumpkiny flavor we crave this time of year in a gluten-free, low carb baked goodie!
- Ingredients you probably already have, minus the pumpkin. But it’s time to stock up – fall is here!
These tasty pumpkin treats come together super fast and easily. Here are all the deets:
Almond flour. These almond flour pumpkin muffins have the best textural results with fine ground almond flour — my favorite brands are Trader Joe’s and Bob’s Red Mill.
Coconut flour. this low carb flour is significantly drier than almond flour, which helps absorb the moisture from the pumpkin and gives, yielding the perfect texture!
Pumpkin puree. Be sure to grab pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie mix, that has a lot of added sugar and other ingredients.
Sweetener. The secret to these tasty muffins is a plant-derived sweetener called erythritol — it’s 70% as sweet as sugar, BUT, when you use keto sweeteners such as Swerve or Lakanto it is just as sweet.
Tools To Make
All you need for this recipe are the classics:

Store this scrumptious low carb pumpkin muffins recipe in an airtight container, in the fridge.
I like to warm mine back up by popping them in the toaster oven, OR. by wrapping one in a slightly famp paper towle and tossing it into the microwave. Mmmmmm, just like they were freshly baked!

Fans Also Made These Low Carb Recipes:
- Almond Flour. Using fine-grained almond flour will yield the most "flour-like" results. My favorite brands are Bob's Red Mill, Trader Joe's, or Costco brands.
- Lakanto, Swerve, or Erythritol. I stick to Lakanto and Swerve which are a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar. If using a different brand of Erythritol, keep in mind it's 70% as sweet as sugar, so you may need to add more to taste.
- Nutritional information is based on 1 muffin, if you make 12 muffins using this recipe. Erythritol adds 1 carb to each muffin, so each muffin has 5g net carbs:
