Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cupcakes

If you’re a fan of pumpkin cupcakes but need a healthier version, then this recipe for keto pumpkin cream cheese cupcakes has your name on it.

The good thing is that these sugar-free pumpkin cream cheese muffins are low in carbs, grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, and keto-friendly. Really, can it get any better?

These cupcakes are super moist, flavor-packed, and topped with the perfect amount of cream cheese frosting. 

I’ve always looked forward to pumpkin season, but when I went low-carb keto, things had to drastically change. Long gone were the days when I would make a pumpkin recipe oozing with sweetness.

Yay for being keto-adapted! It’s pretty remarkable how your body begins to desire less sugar once you remove it from your diet.

Besides this recipe for low-carb pumpkin cream cheese cupcakes, I have a complete list of Keto Cakes that I encourage you to also visit.

Once pumpkin season rolls around, this girl gets a major hankering for pumpkin treats. And it seems like I can’t stock up on enough pumpkin puree cans.

I just get all caught up with the season’s flavors and somehow find myself making something pumpkin all the time. 

Thankfully, my family is not complaining and encourages me to keep testing recipes on them.  

These low-carb pumpkin cupcakes came out of a need to create something festive that would be easy to transport. It seems like that time of year when treats and invitations abound.

So, I wanted to be able to have a keto-friendly treat that would also make a great host gift. 

That’s not to say that these delightful muffins shouldn’t be enjoyed at home, too, because these lovelies also make the best snack, dessert, and even quick breakfast.

My flour of choice for these muffins is finely milled almond flour, and I recommend you measure and then sift for the best results.

It is worth that little extra step to get the perfect texture when keto baking

As far as sweeteners are concerned, I used Lakanto’s monk fruit classic granulated and Gold,which is their brown sugar substitute. And for the cream cheese frosting,

I used Lakanto’s confectioner’s sugar sub (powdered). You could, of course, use your favorite sweeteners, but I thought I would share my favorite since I get the most consistent results when I use them.

When I started out to create this recipe, I knew one thing was certain: I wanted the pumpkin and spice flavors to be pronounced.

That’s why you’ll see I was generous when it came time to add spices. I’ve topped these low-carb pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and a slight drizzle of sugar-free caramel sauce, which is totally optional since these muffins can stand alone and be just as delicious.

Sounds delicious! If it makes 24 your nutritional information label at the bottom says 12. Can you please clarify? Just want to make sure I calculate my carbs correctly! Thank you!

Hi Tina, It's 24 for sure. Thanks for catching that error Darling!

Sorry, I called these muffins in my last comment. I made these cupcakes and they were the best we have ever had for being keto. I also added a couple tablespoons of the pumpkin to the frosting and that was really good. These are amazing and the family is asking to make more. I will be making these quite often. Followed the recipe to the T except didn't make 24 only 16 and next time 12 so they will be higher then the liner. Only was below the liner so really small in size.

I’m eager to try this recipe however I’m confused. The top of the recipe says Yield:24, yet the directions say use ONE muffin tin... does the recipe make 12 or 24 muffins?

Hi Dru, the recipe makes 24 cupcakes. I updated the instructions to reflect this. Thanks for making me aware.
