Recipe: Low Carb Pumpkin Muffins with Walnut Cinnamon Topping

Dear Reader,

I have been told my earlier pumpkin muffin recipe is more of a crustless pumpkin pie which sounds pretty good to me 😉 But for those of you who prefer a more muffin-y muffin, I developed this recipe which for me at least was more bread-y. Plus I added a walnut cinnamon topping which has to be a good thing. This recipe is low-carb, THM-friendly (as an S snack), gluten-free, and dairy-free.

Low Carb Pumpkin Muffins with Walnut Cinnamon Topping

Ingredients:

1/2 c flax meal

1 c blanched almond flour

1 tsp xantham gum

1/2 c xylitol

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tbsp. baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 c canned pumpkin

1/2 c almond milk

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp molasses

1/2 c egg whites

3/4 c chopped walnuts

2 tsp truvia (or xylitol or other sweetener)
