Can I Substitute??
Keto Sweetener Substitutions for Low Carb Pumpkin Spice Muffins
If you haven't already tried Bocha Sweet, I highly recommend you do.
It's a superfood alternative sweetener made from a Japanese pumpkin called the Kabocha pumpkin.
Most alternative sweeteners will work in this recipe. You can use Monk Fruit Sweetener, Xylitol or a blend like Swerve.
You can substitute molasses for yakon syrup. The purpose of this ingredient is to give that brown sugar flavor to the low carb pumpkin spice muffins!
