Ingredients

For the muffins:

For the filling:

  • 1 cup cream cheese low-fat
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190C). Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners or grease with coconut oil.
  2. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients - flour, spice mix, soda and salt until well combined. Set aside.

  3. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs. Add coconut oil, syrup, pumpkin puree and vanilla. Mix well.

  4. Slowly whisk in the flour mixture, until there are no lumps. Fill muffin tins 3/4 full.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese with egg yolk and lemon juice until smooth.
  6. Top each muffin with about 1 teaspoon of cream cheese mixture and use a toothpick to swirl it into the batter.
  7. Bake muffins for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Recipe Notes

Keep in airtight container up to 3 days. I used US cup (240ml) as a measure.
