Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups Almond Flour (200 g)
  • 1 cup Dried Shredded Coconut, roughly chopped, (100 g)
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Flour (35 g)
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds, roughly chopped,( 45 g)
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin kernels, roughly chopped,( 40 g)
  • 1/2 cup erythritol (120 g)
  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk powder (20 g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (5 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (2.5 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (2.5 g)

Spice mix

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mace
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Wet Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup canned unsweetened pumpkin puree (170 g)
  • 3/4 cup full fat coconut milk from a can (1.77 ml / 235 g)
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar (15 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia glycerite (2.5 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract (2.5 g)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and move the rack to the lower third of the oven.
  • Liberally spray a 12 hole muffin pan with baking spray.
  • Measure the nuts and coconut and either give them a rough chop with a knife or pulse them a few times in a food processor or coffee grinder, and place them into a large mixing bowl.
  • Measure and add all of the dry ingredients, plus the spices, to the large bowl and whisk together until completely blended.
  • In a smaller bowl, add all of the wet ingredients and mix with a hand mixer until combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly, scraping the bowl to get everything incorporated. Let the mix sit in the bowl for five minutes.
  • Distribute the batter evenly into each muffin cup making sure to pile it into the center of the cup like a mountain. If the batter is not touching the sides or bottom in places, that's okay, it will fill in as it bakes.
  • Place the pumpkin spice muffins into the oven and turn the oven up to 400 degrees for 8 minutes. Then, turn the oven back down to 350 and bake for about 30 minutes more - until the muffins are browned and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
