Copycat Starbucks Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Today I’m sharing a keto friendly copycat Starbucks pumpkin cream cheese muffin recipe. 

Since going back to school things have been a little busy and I have to confess that a couple of days a week I’ve been giving in to my after school Starbucks craving.  I love me a grande Americano with cream and it helps me sail through the rest of the afternoon and evening with all kinds of energy that I wouldn’t have had otherwise.  When I pulled up to the drive through the other day I knew that fall had officially arrived because I noticed they were advertising their amazing pumpkin cream cheese muffins. SO. GOOD.

But, if you’ve been following for awhile, then you might know that my husband and I have been following a low-carb keto-style diet since last February.  We really love it, but recently have become a little tired of our tried and true meal ideas and I’ve started experimenting with more keto-friendly baking.  These pumpkin cream cheese muffins are honestly so delicious that you will think that you ordered them right from the Starbucks drive through window.  Pair them with your morning or afternoon coffee or tea and you’ve got a perfect mini-meal or snack!

  3. Add about 1/4 cup rounded of batter to each of the 12 muffin cups. Press down in the center with a large spoon or the rounded end of a pestle to create a hollow depression for the cream cheese mixture.

  2. Spoon the cream cheese mixture evenly between the muffins.

    Recipe called for 1/2 cup almond milk but the recipe instruction never called for the almond milk. Can you let me know how to correct? I didn’t use the almond milk and it seemed to be really dry.

    1. Thanks for noticing and sorry about that – I added almond milk when I mixed in the rest of the “wet” ingredients.
