You are going to love these delicious and nutritious Keto Zone pumpkin chia muffins!
This autumn, as the temperature begins to drop and the days become shorter, you have probably noticed pumpkins are beginning to appear in your local market.
While pumpkins are relatively dense in carbohydrate content, when prepared correctly and eaten in moderation, they can be a great addition to a ketogenic diet.
This tasty recipe includes chia seeds for added fiber and healthy fats. Fiber helps to mitigate blood sugar spikes from carbs by slowing the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream.
These muffins also provide bioavailable protein from organic eggs, healthy fat from blanched almond flour, as well as a host of vitamins and minerals from the pumpkin purée. All of this nutrition with only 4 grams of net carbs per muffin.
With this ketogenic pumpkin muffin recipe, there is no reason to feel guilty about indulging in your sweet tooth this fall season!

I just made these, they were good but I would have added more sweetener and more pumpkin spice. I also used coconut butter in place of butter. All in all they were amazing.
