With Halloween just around the corner I’m feeling bombarded with pumpkin EVERYTHING. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE pumpkin everything— only problem is— most pumpkin treats will destroy a day’s worth of clean eating. So I’ve taken a collection of Pinterest-inspired keto recipes and built my very own keto-approved pumpkin cupcakes. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
