  5. Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and stir until combined.

  7. Prepare your cream cheese filling by adding the ingredients listed above into another small bowl. Mix until well incorporated and creamy.
  8. In a Ziplock bag, add your cream cheese filling and make a piping bag. Cut the corner about 1/4 of an inch.
  9. Stick the corner of the piping bag into each muffin, half way in, and squeezing in about a tablespoon of frosting in each. Pulling up and out as you do. Creating that little cream cheese swirl on top.
  10. Top with pumpkin seeds.
  11. Bake for about 18 minutes or until golden brown.
  12. Let it cool off completely before serving.

TIPS: If you have extras, wrap them up in saran wrap and store in the fridge for snacks or breakfast on the go. You can also double the recipe and make smaller versions as well.
