INSTRUCTIONS

PREPARE THE STREUSEL FIRST:

  1. In a medium bowl, use a fork to combine the chilled ghee with the almond flour, sugar substitute, pumpkin pie spice and sea salt. Blend until a crumbly mixture forms, then refrigerate until ready to use.

MUFFINS:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and spray muffin tin with coconut oil spray.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, eggs, sugar substitute, maple syrup subsitute, applesauce, and vanilla, until very smooth and well combined

  3. In a separate bowl, blend the 3 flours, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice until well combined, then stir this into the wet mixture, beating by hand until smooth and well combined.

  4. Fill the muffin tin until they are about 3/4 full (it will make enough for 11-12 muffins)

  5. Top each muffin generously with the chilled streusel, then bake in the preheated oven for 24 minutes or until cooked thoroughly in the center.

  6. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  7. If making the icing, stir together all ingredients in a small bowl until very smooth. You might need more or less sugar to get a “drizzle” consistency. Drizzle icing over completely cooled muffins before serving. Enjoy!
