Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Muffins

Like I mentioned here I procrastinated yesterday and baked instead of being productive.  Well, good thing I did because these muffins were worth it.  You know what else was worth it?  Being home and able to take pictures in perfect light.

And now for the recipe.  I started with Tina’s Pumpkin Walnut Paleo muffins and then subtracted a few things (almond butter) and added in a few things (cream cheese).

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cream-Cheese Muffins
Makes 12


  • 2 cups almond flour/meal
  • 2 cups canned pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter ( I used Justin’s Honey PB)
  • 1/2 cup honey + 1 tablespoon for filling
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 oz light cream cheese

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix pumpkin, almond flour, eggs, PB, 1/2 cup honey, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt together.  Fill greased muffin tins halfway full with muffin mixture.  Set remaining mixture aside.  Mix cream cheese and remaining honey together.  Add a dollop of cream cheese mix to muffin tins.  Top off muffin tins with remaining batter. Bake for 32 – 35 minutes.

  1. these look like major trouble. And I totally know those days where I get nothing accomplished other than my latest baked good. They frustrate and thrill me all at the same time.

  2. these were delicious and savory unlike my usually super sweet variety. also, loved how they made my apt smell like an amazing mixture of peanut butter and autumn. thank you!!

  3. So I was craving Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins the other day and all the recipes I found were for not so unhealthy ones (refined sugar, lots of oil, etc.) that I ended up making anyway. I tried looking at some of the go-to healthier cooking blogs but couldn’t find what I was looking for. Such a doofus that I forgot to check your blog! My husband liked the muffins I made but I can’t wait to make these for a food choice I can feel better about serving to my family. Thanks!
