Pick up pumpkin puree, pure maple syrup, and cream cheese on sale at Safeway this week to make these delicious pumpkin muffins or cupcakes with a maple cream cheese frosting.  The muffins are perfectly delicious on their own, but even more delicious and indulgent with the cream cheese frosting.

How to Make Almond Flour Pumpkin Muffins

Preheat the oven to 350° F.  Place muffin pan liners in a cupcake pan. 

In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, salt, and pumpkin pie spice mix.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, pure pumpkin puree, maple syrup and vanilla extract. 

Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, gently stirring until incorporated. 

Divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups using an ice cream scoop, filling almost to the top of each liner. 

Bake for 25 minutes, until a toothpick or knife comes out clean when inserted into the center. 

Place on a wire rack to cool before frosting. 

Prepare the Frosting

In a large bowl, cream the softened butter and cream cheese together.  Add vanilla extract, maple syrup and powdered sugar and beat until creamy and fluffy. 

Transfer the frosting into a bag with a piping tip and pipe the frosting onto the muffins as desired. 

This frosting will be enough for 12 cupcakes/muffins with a double layer.
