It is the pumpkin time of year again!

Pumpkin is a great keto food. While it is relatively high in carbohydrates, when eaten in moderation it can provide numerous important nutrients without knocking you out of the Keto Zone.

These nutrients include: B vitamins, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin A, vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium, copper, manganese, and fiber.

Pumpkin is also great for baking because it adds body and texture to baked goods without requiring inflammatory high carb grains like wheat.

That’s why we are sharing these easy and delicious keto pumpkin muffins. They are great as a quick breakfast, a yummy snack, or a healthy dessert.

Celebrate the return of fall with these tasty pumpkin treats!
