Chocolate Chip Keto Pumpkin Muffins

Are you looking for a delicious treat that is perfect for your keto diet? Look no further than these chocolate chip keto pumpkin muffins! These muffins are packed with flavor and nutrition, making them the perfect snack or dessert for anyone looking to stay healthy while enjoying something sweet.

I made these the other day and they were gone in a matter of hours.  Now, I do have a houseful of teens, but still!

So I made another batch when they were at school the next day simply so they would last a bit longer!  That ended when they got home from school.

But, seriously, I love making keto treats that my kids love and I also happen to love pumpkin.

What's So Great About Pumpkin

Aside from the AMAZING flavor of pumpkin - what is so great about it? Pumpkin is a powerhouse of nutrition. Rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, pumpkin is a clear winner when it comes to something a little sweet to make a muffin out of.

According to HealthLine, Pumpkins have the following benefits:

  • Incredibly nutritious with high beta carotene
  • High antioxidant content - this can aid in reducing the risk of cancer and chronic disease
  • High in vitamins that can boost immunity - specifically vitamin A and vitamin C
  • Great for eyesight (Vitamin A, Lutein, and Zeaxanthin)
  • Low Calorie and nutrient dense
  • Heart health benefits from Vitamin C and fiber
  • Healthy skin 

I mean, do you need any more benefits from that?  That is enough to make me eat something that tasted terrible, let alone something that tastes as amazing as pumpkin!

What to Eat with Keto Pumpkin Muffins

Keto pumpkin muffins are delicious on their own, but they pair well with just about anything. For a tasty and satisfying breakfast, consider pairing your muffin with a cup of coffee or tea and some freshly scrambled eggs.

Alternatively, enjoy your muffin as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack or dessert, topped with some homemade keto whipped cream.

How to Store Keto Pumpkin Muffins

The best way to store keto pumpkin muffins is in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Alternatively, you can store them in the freezer for up to three months.

Tips and Tricks

To make the best chocolate chip keto pumpkin muffins, be sure to follow these tips and tricks:

  • Use high-quality ingredients, organic when you can
  • Add extra spice, such as nutmeg, cinnamon, or allspice, to enhance the pumpkin flavor
  • Don't over-mix your batter, as this can lead to tough muffins
  • Let your muffins cool completely before storing them to prevent them from becoming soggy

Sweeteners For Keto Pumpkin Muffins

I chose to use my favorite blend of allulose and monk fruit in this delicious keto pumpkin muffin recipe. It is the best keto sugar replacement out there. If you've never heard of Allulose, head on over to the article Is Allulose Keto and read all about it! I use the Besti brand from WholesomeYumFoods which you can find here!

And, of course,  this recipe is loaded with flavors that naturally act as sweeteners.  We have both pumpkin AND chocolate chips.  These naturally sweeten the flavor of almost any recipe.

Kitchen Essentials to Make Keto Pumpkin Muffins

Muffin Liners - I like the basic, unbleached muffin liners.  Back to basics here!

Muffin Tins - I have tried to NOT use muffin tins and simply fill up the liners.  Nope.  Epic fail.  You need to use the tin!

Mixing Bowls - I love the glass Pyrex mixing bowls!

Silicone Spatula - I do most of my mixing with spatulas.  I find that using hand beaters can over-mix the dough a lot.  

There are some recipes that need beaters, but most you can simply use a spatula.  This allows you to fold the dough and blend it gently.

  2. I made these today and they’re delicious! I accidentally put almond extract instead of vanilla, but they were still good (though I’m sure they’ll be better when I make them with vanilla!)

  3. How would I exchange monkfriit for the liquid stevia and erythritol. Do I replace both? How much monkfriit would I use?

    1. You can pretty much substitute erythritol and monkfruit 1:1. You can keep the stevia. I find that blending stevia with either erythritol or monkfruit really balance each other out.

  4. Oh my, I made these today. They’re delicious! I added a 1/4 roughly chopped pecans and 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut. We love them! Thank you so much for sharing your delicious recipes with us.

  5. I made these and they tasted good, but they were dense and extremely moist, not light and fluffy. Did I do something wrong?
