These Keto Pumpkin Muffins are packed with pumpkin spice flavor and topped with a pecan crumble topping! At just 5 net carbs, this is a low carb treat you will enjoy all fall long!
Mr. Maebell and I have always had a bit of a tradition. Fall is our favorite season and on the first cool, crisp weekend we make pumpkin muffins for breakfast and then start a big pot of chili to simmer all day. We usually open the windows and embrace the change in seasons.
Although it is still close to 90 degrees here, I have been working on a great low carb pumpkin muffin for a few weeks and I believe I’ve finally nailed it. I hope you enjoy this low carb, keto friendly Pumpkin Muffin as much as we do!
These almond flour pumpkin muffins are packed with pumpkin spice, super moist, and have just the texture you would expect!
But the very best part is the cinnamon pecan crumble on top! The crumble uses butter, almond flour, cinnamon, pecans and brown sugar swerve. This adds a touch of crunch and the perfect amount of sweetness. This is a great afternoon pick me up when those hunger pains start calling or perfect for breakfast with a warm cup of coffee.

Tips for Making Keto Muffins
- These almond flour pumpkin muffins freeze incredibly well and can be reheated in the oven or microwave for a quick grab and go snack.
- Make sure to buy pure pumpkin puree and not canned pumpkin pie filling, which is loaded with sugar and spices.
- If you don’t have pecans on hand, the crumble topping can also be made with walnuts.
