How to Maximize Your Keto Pumpkin Muffin Experience:
- USE CREAMY VANILLA MCT OIL: MCT oil is a magical tool when it comes to the Keto Diet. Within minutes of consuming, MCTs are converted to ketones by your liver, and ketones are what help keep you in ketosis and burning fat. Not only that, but as the name suggests, our Vanilla Keto Coffee Creamer is rich and delicious, making it an excellent addition baked goods!
- MAKE IT SWEETER: We're going to be straight up with you - because they're keto, these muffins are not super sweet. So if you want to boost the sweetness, you have a couple options. If you're keto, increase the amount of monk fruit syrup. If you're not keto, either increase the monk fruit syrup or add a little honey or maple syrup.
- DIY PUMPKIN PIE SPICE: Don't have pumpkin pie spice in your cupboard? No problem! Just make your own by mixing 2 tsp ginger, 3 tbsp cinnamon, 2 tsp nutmeg, 1 ½ tsp allspice, and 1 ½ tsp cloves.
