These are soo much better than the original recipe, because they are so much more moist! induction friendly as well!

This recipe tastes very good after reducing the sweetener. I am guessing the author meant teaspoons of Splenda and not tablespoons. I used only 4 tsp of liquid splenda (the packets or granulated DO have carbs) and that was enough for my taste. Beware that 4 Tbsp of Splenda could have 6-12 carbs!! depending on what variety you are using. I also decreased the sweetener in the frosting to 2 drops, equivalent to a 2 tsp. The egg is .6 carb, the canned pumpkin I used was 2 carbs for that amount and 1 oz cream cheese has .75 carbs and I believe even the cinnamon/pumpkin spice add 1 carb. I also used unsweetened almond milk. This is still a very low carb breakfast in terms of "normal" muffins but is definitely not 2 carbs- probably closer to 5, but could easily be more depending on the sweetener used. It turns out very moist and delicious every time- a great way to start the morning!
