Pumpkin Muffins with Maple Cream Cheese - FIXATE style

It's the season for EVERYTHING pumpkin!  Pumpkin coffee, cookies, breads, soups, raviolis, butter, crackers, cereal, and today at the store, I even saw, pumpkin spice peanut butter!!

However, these pumpkin foods are usually full of processed ingredients and imitation flavorings. When I saw this recipe in the FIXATE cookbook, I knew I had to try it, especially with the cream cheese center! Full of whole foods, clean ingredients and healthy, these muffins were perfect, paired with coffee as an afternoon snack.
Another delicious recipe from this book, and I'll be making these every fall!! 

(Makes 2 Servings)
Per serving:
1 purple
1 orange

2 oz cram cheese
1 TBSP pure maple syrup (I used organic, local honey, because I don't like maple syrup)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda (gluten free)
1 dash sea salt
