Keto Recipe – Mini Pumpkin Spice Muffins
The best part? These are rich with the pumpkin spice flavors that we all love without the sugar or junk ingredients. Be sure to buy pure pumpkin, opting for organic if possible. Also use no sugar added 100% sunflower seed butter. Feel free to change the spices around if you prefer. If you’re not a fan of nutmeg, use ground ginger, or simply use all ground cinnamon. Either way, these mini muffins are sure to be a regular addition to your baking lineup!
One interesting note about using sunflower seed butter: Sunflower seeds contain chlorophyll. That’s nothing to worry about because it is a natural component of plants. Baking with sunflower seed butter and leavening agents might give you a surprising result. Baking powder and baking soda react with the chlorophyll when subjected to heat. This harmless chemical reaction can cause your finished product to have a green hue.
The good thing is that this typically occurs after a day or so, so you won’t likely see it right away. If this happens to you, know that there is nothing wrong with your muffins. It’s just harmless science.
