This recipe is so moist and tasty! It is a low sugar recipe for Healthy Pumpkin Muffins. I love fall for special pumpkin flavored foods. You will love this healthier recipe that does not use sugar, but uses allulose (a rare natural sugar sweetener with 95% fewer calories than sugar…can ya give me a YAY). This recipe uses applesauce and avocado to help it be the moistest it can be and it works fantastically!

Don’t these muffins look so golden and yummy? They are:)
This recipe is both adult and kid-approved! My boys adore pumpkin pie. They also love pumpkin flavored bread and muffins. Pumpkin everything! So, when I set out to create this recipe, I knew there was a chance they might like it. My boys are picky eaters. Plus, I was a bit nervous because it doesn’t have any added granular sugar. I wondered if my boys would still like it using allulose instead of regular table sugar. I am happy to report they absolutely loved this recipe!

Healthy Baked Goods
I love it when I can use a recipe that is healthy when making baked goods for my family. This recipe for healthy pumpkin muffins is made with pumpkin, mashed avocado, and applesauce. It’s loaded with fiber! There is no added granular sugar. One cup of white chocolate chips, which do contain sugar, are spread throughout the entire batter so the amount of sugar added in to this recipe is very minimal.
Keystone Pantry Allulose is the sweetener that is used in this recipe. It is a natural sugar that is said to be 70% as sweet as sugar, but it has 95% fewer calories than sugar. Those are numbers I can get behind and fall in love with! Love it; fewer calories but still delivering the sweetness makes this ingredient an awesome addition or substitution in traditional recipes that call for sugar. In this recipe, the applesauce adds in a bit of sweetness too making this recipe sweet yet more healthy.
Keystone Pantry Allulose can be purchased at: Lang’s Chocolates.
This sweetener is non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegan-friendly. It’s made in the USA, my favorite country;) I adore buying products made in my own country.

What is Needed to Make These Sumptuous Healthy Pumpkin Muffins?
The 12 ingredients needed for this recipe include the following items:
- 2 c. self-rising flour
- 1 c. Keystone Pantry Allulose
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground cardamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 can of pureed pumpkin
- 1/2 c. smooth applesauce
- 2 ounces mashed avocado
- 1/2 c. melted and cooled butter
- 3 Tbsp. skim milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 c. white chocolate chips
This recipe makes about 20 muffins so you will need muffin pans and cooking spray also. I use a stand-up mixer to prepare the batter. I love my mixer!
For making batters, I usually like to mix the dry and wet ingredients separately. I add all the dry ingredients to a large bowl first and hand stir them together. Next, I combine the wet ingredients (except eggs, milk, and butter) together separately and stir them prior to combining wet and dry together. After the wet and dry are stirred together, I beat the eggs and milk together in a separate small bowl before stirring the mixture into the batter. Next, add melted and cooled butter and stir.
I add in the white chocolate chips last and stir.
Now it’s ready to bake! Spray the muffin pan with cooking spray and bake the muffins at 400° for about 37-38 minutes. Let cool. **Please, scroll down to print this recipe and the steps to make these muffins.
They come out a beautiful fall deep orange/rusty color, just as pumpkin foods should look like:) I love using unexpected foods in recipes that turn out to make the taste flow beautifully, specifically ingredients like avocado, allulose, and applesauce in this case. I can’t wait to make this recipe again!
