Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a muffin tin with 5 or 6 parchment liners.
Whisk together all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Use a spatula or round measuring cup to smash any lumps.
In a small glass measuring cup, melt coconut oil. Stir in pumpkin purée and water. Pour wet mixture over dry mixture and stir until just combined.
Use an ice cream scoop to place the batter in the muffin tin. Press the tops with a spatula and smooth out the tops.
Bake for 30-33 minutes until the tops spring back when pressed. *Important* Turn off the oven, but leave the muffins inside for another 10 minutes to cool gradually. After 10 minutes, open the oven door and pull out the rack and let them cool another 5 minutes (This is to prevent sinking - especially if your house is cold)
To make the glaze:
While the muffins are baking, place coconut butter jar/packet in a bowl of warm water to melt/soften (this could take around 10 minutes)
When coconut butter has melted, stir/mix well to incorporate all of the oil that naturally separates/rises to the top.
In a small bowl, stir together coconut butter, coconut milk, and monkfruit drops. (If your mixture gets too cold, it will harden/thicken. Simply warm it back up to soften (place bowl back in warm water or very gently microwave on low)
Spoon glaze over muffins. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin spice, if you like. Enjoy!
Reduce bake time to 28-30 minutes for 6 muffins.To store: Keep in an airtight container at room temp for 3-4 days or refrigerated for about 1 week. Or freeze tightly wrapped for about 1 month. Keep glaze refrigerated. Should last about 10 days. I scoop a spoonful onto my muffin and microwave 10-15 seconds to re-melt the glaze. Works perfectly!Homemade Pumpkin Spice Recipe:
3 Tbs cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp allspice
1 1/2 tsp cloves (optional)
Add all spices to a large spice jar, add the lid and shake vigorously to combine. Sweetener Swap: Use any granulated sweetener you like, such as coconut sugar for non low-carb. For the glaze, you can use a bit of powdered sweetener, stevia drops, or leave it unsweetened.
