There's no reason you can't enjoy some pumpkin-spice-flavoured goodness on a low-carb diet. While you might have to pass on a PSL, pumpkin itself is moderately low-carb — and when it comes to baked goods like pumpkin breads and muffins, low-carb sweeteners and flours are all you need to indulge in that yummy flavour without wrecking your diet. Need proof? Try whipping up a batch of these chocolate chip pumpkin muffins.

I know what you're thinking: Low-carb . . . chocolate chip . . . muffins? But you only need a few ingredients to make that seemingly impossible dream a reality. Among them: almond flour and coconut flour, erythritol for some sweetness, and sugar-free chocolate chips. (I like Lily's brand best.) If you can't find low-carb chocolate chips specifically, you can get a chocolate bar instead and just chop it up to add to the muffins.

Once you've gathered everything you need, you'll simply combine the wet and dry ingredients, fold in the chocolate chips, scoop the batter into a lined muffin pan, and bake.

The end result? Muffins with a moist yet crumbly centre and a bit of crunch on top. Warm them up before serving, and you'll get gooey chocolate in every bite! Dig right in to the recipe below.
