Pistachio and Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins

Keto Recipes > Keto Breakfast Recipes

Awww yeah – I have some news! I’m so excited this week to announce that our first cookbook, Cooking by the RULED Book has finally been published! It’s pretty exciting stuff when you can officially call yourself an author – and the positive feedback has really been awesome. I’m so happy that you guys visit the website, find the recipes great, and can share them all with your friends.

Anyway, enough about me – time for the recipe, right? So I have a ton of pistachios laying around that I bought when traveling, and decided it was about time that I started to use them up. Though it’s not in season right now, I had the urge to make something with pumpkin in it. I thought why not put some chocolate and pistachios in there for good measure.

I love having muffins for breakfast, and these are what I made them for. I store them up for later use in the week, and take one or two with me on the way out. They work wonders, and I’m sure they’ll help you out too – especially those of you pressed for time. I can keep them in my fridge for about 2 weeks, but truth be told they never last that long!

If you are a lover of the spice cakes, or if you made the pumpkin cheesecake tarts and liked them, you’ll be a sure lover of these! The cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and ginger work together beautifully. The salt from the pistachios really bring that chocolaty goodness out, while playing off the sweetness of the vanilla.

Let me know what you think if you make them in the comments below! If you end up buying a copy of the cookbook and run into any problems – feel free to shoot me an e-mail and I can usually get back to you within the hour. Thanks again everyone for your awesome support!
