1 muffin per serving


8 oz. cream cheese
3 eggs
3 tablespoons Stevia
1 ¾ cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 ¼ cups pumpkin puree
1/3 cup apple sauce

Heat oven to 375 F, line muffin tins with paper cups and set aside.

Mix cream cheese, 1 egg, Stevia together, and set aside.

In a mixing bowl combine 2 eggs, pumpkin, apple sauce and vanilla extract. Sift your dry ingredients together sugar, flour, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda. Pour your dry ingredients into your pumpkin mixture and don't over mix your batter, it just needs to be moist. Spoon half your batter into 24 muffin cups. Spoon a dollop of cream cheese mixture on top of the pumpkin mixture in each muffin cup, and then top each with the rest of the pumpkin mixture.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
