      These are excellent – as good as any high-carb muffin.

      2 eggs, slightly beaten
      3/4 cup SPLENDA® Granular (175 mL)
      3/4 cup granulated erythritol (175 mL)
      1/3 cup olive oil (75 mL)
      1 cup canned pumpkin (250 mL)
      2 1/4 cups
      Low-Carb Bake Mix (550 mL)
      1 tbsp cinnamon (15 mL)
      1/2 tsp ground ginger (2 mL)
      1/2 tsp nutmeg (2 mL)
      1 tsp baking soda (5 mL)
      1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
      1/2 cup raisins (125 mL)
      1/2 cup walnuts (125 mL)

      Cream Cheese Frosting (optional):
      4 oz light cream cheese (125 g)
      2 tbsp powdered erythritol (25 mL)
      2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened (25 mL)
      1 tbsp whipping cream,
      OR Da Vinci® Sugar Free Gingerbread Syrup (25 mL)

      In food processor, combine eggs, SPLENDA® Granular, erythritol, olive oil and pumpkin. Process really well to help dissolve erythritol (it won’t dissolve completely). In medium bowl, combine Low-Carb Bake Mix, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. Add to pumpkin mixture; process until combined. Stir in raisins and walnuts. Spoon the batter into greased muffin pans. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 300°F (150°C), cover muffins lightly with foil and bake another 5 minutes, or until a knife inserted in muffins comes out clean.

      Yield: 16 muffins
