I’m a fan of cheesecake stuffed ANYTHING but the combination of pumpkin and the warming spices of fall go particularly well with the light, creaminess of cheesecake.  This recipe uses a hefty amount of pumpkin puree which is a sneaky way of dosing the family with extra vitamin A to strengthen their immune systems and protect their eyes.  Pumpkin is already full of fiber and great for the digestive tract so when combined with the digestive benefits of the Flour and Sugar Swaps, prepare yourself for a glorious morning bathroom experience!

Cheesecake Stuffed Pumpkin Muffins

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line your muffin cups.
Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl then add wet ingredients and blend with a hand mixer until smooth batter is achieved.  Mix cheesecake ingredients in a separate bowl until smooth.  Load your muffin tins about 1/3 full with pumpkin batter, then spoon a large dollop of cheesecake batter on top.  Cover the cheesecake with pumpkin batter and finish it with a little more cheesecake batter on the very top, then do a light swirl with a spoon handle to blend.
Bake on the middle rack for about 22-25 minutes (up to 30 mins if using Grain-Free Flour).
Completely cool your muffins in the tin before removing and serving. *For best taste, texture and health benefits, refrigerate all Detox Desserts overnight before indulging.  Store them covered in the fridge for up to a week.
