Pumpkin-Cream Cheese Muffins

Hi Friends,

I have seen a few recipes that are NOT BFC friendly for both pumpkin and lemon pies, cakes, muffins filled with Cream Cheese. Of course I love a baking challenge - so I made my own version.

I Hope you Like them.

for the Pumpkin part
1/2 c Coconut Flour
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Seasoning
1/4 tsp All Spice
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
pinch of Salt
1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree (NOT Pumpkin Pie filling!)
1/2 Cup Butter or coconut oil
6 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 cup of Nature's Hollow Sugar Free Maple Syrup

4-6 packs of stevia

Mix wet ingredients together. 
Add all dry ingredients to sifter and sift into wet mixture, stirring as you go. 
Mix until lumps are gone.  or do it in your food processor, like I do.
Grease muffin pan or use cups and fill 12 muffin cups. 
Use your finger and made little wells in the center of each one. Like so...

for the Cream Cheese part
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2.5 tsp Xylitol 

microwave cream cheese for 30 seconds to soften
mix all ingredients together till smooth. Carefully pour by spoonfuls into the wells of the pumpkin muffins.

Bake 350 for around 20 minutes - or until the cream cheese part is set and doesn't jiggle - as always with baking don't let them burn.
Let cool completely and Store in fridge. 
They should have aprox. 1 sugar and 10g carbs each

HOLY MOLY I just ate one and they are the BOMB!! 


  1. OMG Rosalie! Those look so good! I can't wait to give them a try.


  2. I just made them today. This was my first venture ever into baking with Xylitol. OMG--these are so good! I don't know how I'm going to put the rest away--I want to eat them all! Thank you so much Rosalie!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
