This recipe is adapted from my keto almond flour blueberry muffins. These muffins are not only delicious but also low in carbs, making them a guilt-free treat. Each muffin typically contains only a few net carbs, making them a perfect option for anyone following a low-carb diet.

Why Choose Keto Muffins?

Low in Carbs and Sugar

One of the main reasons to choose keto muffins is that they are low in carbs and sugar. Traditional muffins are typically made with all-purpose flour and sugar, which can quickly add up in carbs and spike your blood sugar levels.

However, these keto muffins are made with almond flour and sweetened with a sugar substitute, making them a much healthier option for those following a keto diet.

Keto-Friendly Ingredients

These keto muffins are made with ingredients that are approved for a keto diet. Almond flour is a popular alternative to all-purpose flour for those following a low-carb diet, as it is high in healthy fats and low in carbs. It also adds a delicious nutty flavor to the muffins.

The muffins are also sweetened with monk fruit, a sugar alcohol that has zero calories and does not affect blood sugar levels. It is a popular sugar substitute for those following a keto diet.

Easy to Make

Not only are these keto muffins healthy and delicious, but they are also incredibly easy to make. You don’t need any fancy equipment or ingredients, and the recipe can be easily adjusted to fit your preferences. Plus, they only take about 30 minutes to make from start to finish, making them a perfect option for a quick and satisfying breakfast or snack.

Ingredients for Making Keto Almond Flour Strawberry Muffins 

Dry ingredients

  • Almond Flour: Almond flour is a versatile and nutrient-packed alternative to other traditional flour types. It’s low in carbs, high in healthy fats, and provides a good dose of protein.
  • Flax Meal: Flax meal is made from ground flaxseeds and is a great source of fiber and healthy fats. It adds moisture and texture to baked goods while providing additional nutritional benefits. Be sure to use the golden flax meal, as the dark variety will impact the color and flavor of the muffins.
  • Monk Fruit Sweetener (or Xylitol): Monk fruit is a low-carb and keto-friendly alternative to traditional sugar. They are suitable for those following a keto diet because they provide sweetness without causing a spike in blood sugar levels.
  • Salt: to enhance flavors and bring out the natural flavors of the other ingredients in the muffins. 
  • Baking Powder: Baking powder is a leavening agent that helps the muffins rise and become light and fluffy.

Wet ingredients

  • Vanilla extract: Use high-quality vanilla extract for that additional vanilla flavor
  • Eggs: act as a binding agent, add moisture, and aid in leavening.
  • Unsweetened plain yogurt: provides moisture and texture for consistency

Add-ins

  • Strawberries: Strawberries bring natural sweetness and vibrant color to these muffins. You can use either fresh or frozen strawberries. 

How to Make Keto Almond Flour Strawberry Muffins 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a muffin tin with 12 liners.
  • In a large bowl, combine almond flour, flax meal, monk fruit sweetener, salt, and baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, unsweetened yogurt, and vanilla extract.
  • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Avoid overmixing.
  • Fold in the chopped strawberries, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  • Scoop the batter into the lined muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let the muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips for the Perfect Keto Muffins

  • Make sure to use fresh strawberries for the best flavor. Frozen strawberries can be used, but they may release more liquid into the batter.
  • If you prefer a sweeter muffin, you can increase the amount of sweetener to your taste.
  • Use unsweetened plain yogurt. Greek yogurt will not work because it’s too thick. It will make the batter dry and unmanageable.
  • Use golden flax meal only. The dark brown flax has a stronger taste and will overpower the muffins. It will also affect the appearance of the muffins by making them darker.

  • Next, wrap each muffin individually with plastic wrap and transfer them to an airtight container. You can keep them at room temperature for a few days or refrigerate them for up to a week. They can also last in the freezer for up to 3 months.
