Ingredients

  • Avocado oil for liners

Cupcakes:

  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup pure pumpkin puree
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 teaspoon stevia glycerite (equals about 1/3 cup sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons coconut flour (44 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (gluten free if needed)

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon stevia glycerite (equals about 1/3 cup powdered sugar)*
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 6 muffin cups with foil (not paper) liners and spray the liners with oil. 
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, melted butter, stevia, vanilla and cinnamon.
  • Whisk in the coconut flour, mixing patiently until very smooth.
  • Finally, mix in the baking powder.
  • Using a 4-tablespoon ice cream scoop, pour the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  • Bake until set and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 22-25 minutes
  • Transfer the cupcakes to a cooling rack and cool completely before enjoying. Texture improves when they reach room temperature.
  • To make the frosting, place the frosting ingredients in a small bowl and whisk with a hand whisk until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  • Transfer the frosting to a piping bag and pipe it on the cupcakes, or simply spread it on top of the cupcakes with a spatula.
  • Leftovers keep for a few days in the fridge. Remove from fridge 30 minutes before serving.

Notes

* A granulated sweetener in the frosting will feel grainy, so please use a powdered sweetener.
