Ingredients

For muffins:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • ¾ cup Swerve brown sugar
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

For Pecan Streusel:

  • ½ cup Swerve brown sugar
  • cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp butter cold
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp pecans crushed

For Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 5 tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • ½ cup Swerve powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 and spray a 12 cup muffin tin with nonstick spray.
  • In a bowl, combine all ingredients for the muffins by hand making sure to combine well.
  • Fill each muffin tin up ¾’s of the way to save room for the topping.
  • To make the pecan streusel, combine all ingredients in a bowl. The butter will start to break apart and you will be left with a topping. Use a fork to do this.
  • Fill each of the 12 muffin tins up with the topping.
  • Bake for 20 minutes and let cool completely before frosting.
  • For the frosting, in a bowl with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and slowly add in the powdered sugar until well combined.
  • Add in the heavy cream and vanilla. You will notice that it is thick. You will now want to
    add in the almond milk to get it to a drizzle consistency you want. I used 2 tablespoons, but you may want to add in another 1-2 for a super runny drizzle.

Notes

For a muffin with lower fat content:
  • Substitute half & half for the heavy cream.
