What are Keto Chocolate Muffins and Why You Should Try Them

Keto chocolate muffins are low-carb, gluten-free, and sugar-free muffins made with almond flour, cocoa powder, and sugar-free sweeteners. They are moist, fluffy, and loaded with chocolate chips, making them a delicious and easy keto breakfast or snack idea.

Unlike regular chocolate muffins, keto chocolate muffins are high in protein, fiber, and healthy fats, and low in carbs and sugar. This means they can help you stay in ketosis, the metabolic state where your body burns fat for fuel. They can also satisfy your sweet tooth without spiking your blood sugar or causing inflammation.

Keto chocolate muffins are not only tasty, but also nutritious. They can keep you full and energized for longer, and support your weight loss and wellness goals. They are also simple to make in one bowl and ready in just 25 minutes.

Now that you know what keto chocolate muffins are and why you should try them, let’s see what ingredients and equipment you need to make them.

Ingredients For Chocolate Keto Muffins

To make these keto chocolate muffins, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Eggs – They provide structure, moisture, and protein to the muffins. You will need 3 large eggs for this recipe.
  • Double cream / heavy cream – This adds richness, fat, and moisture to the muffins. You can also use sour cream or Greek yogurt instead. You will need 1/2 cup of double cream or heavy cream for this recipe.
  • Vanilla extract – This enhances the flavor and aroma of the muffins. You will need 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract for this recipe.
  • Almond flour – This is the main flour for these keto muffins. It is low-carb, gluten-free, and high in protein and fiber. You will need 1 cup of almond flour for this recipe.
  • Coconut flour – This is another low-carb, gluten-free flour that helps absorb excess moisture and create a fluffy texture. You will need 1/4 cup of coconut flour for this recipe.
  • Cocoa powder – This gives the muffins a deep chocolate flavor and color. You will need 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder for this recipe.
  • Swerve or stevia – These are natural, zero-calorie sweeteners that taste like sugar without affecting your blood sugar levels. You can use any granulated or powdered sweetener of your choice, as long as it measures like sugar. You will need 1/3 cup of Swerve or stevia for this recipe.
  • Gluten-free baking powder – This helps the muffins rise and create air bubbles. You will need 3/4 teaspoon of gluten-free baking powder for this recipe.
  • Himalayan salt or sea salt – This balances the sweetness and enhances the flavor of the muffins. You will need 1/4 teaspoon of Himalayan salt or sea salt for this recipe.
  • Olive oil – This adds healthy fat and moisture to the muffins. You can also use melted butter or coconut oil instead. You will need 1/4 cup of olive oil for this recipe.
  • Sugar-free chocolate chips – These add extra chocolate goodness and texture to the muffins. You can use store-bought sugar-free chocolate chips or make your own with this recipe. You will need 3/4 cup of sugar-free chocolate chips for this recipe.

These are all the ingredients you need to make these delicious keto chocolate muffins. In the next section, I will show you how to make them step by step.

Instructions How To Make Low Carb Chocolate Muffins

Making these low carb chocolate muffins is very easy and quick. You only need one bowl and a few simple steps. Here is how to make them:

  • Preheat your oven to 325°F / 160°C and line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners or spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy. Then add the double cream, vanilla extract, and olive oil and whisk until well combined.
  • Add the almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, sweetener, baking powder, and salt and whisk until smooth and no lumps remain. The batter will be thick and creamy.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula, reserving some for the tops of the muffins.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling them about 3/4 full. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the tops of the muffins.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs.
  • Let the muffins cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy your delicious low carb chocolate muffins with a cup of coffee or tea, or store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months and reheat them in the microwave when you want a quick and easy keto snack.

Q7: Can I tweak the recipe to make mini muffins or a cake?

Definitely! Adjust the baking time for mini muffins and explore the possibilities of transforming this recipe into a keto-friendly cake.

Q8: Are these muffins suitable for a special occasion?

Absolutely! Whether it’s a birthday, celebration, or just a craving, these keto chocolate muffins add a touch of sweetness to any special moment.

Q9: Can I use just almond flour?

Absolutely! If you’re an almond enthusiast, you can swap coconut flour for more almond flour. Just tweak the amounts a bit. Try 1 1/2 cups of almond flour and cut the almond milk to 1/4 cup for that perfect almond-packed goodness.

Q10: Can I use a different sweetener?

For sure! Sweeten things up with your favorite granulated or powdered sweetener, ensuring it measures like sugar. Liquid sweeteners like stevia or monk fruit are game too, but remember to adjust amounts and liquids. Check the conversion chart on your sweetener package for handy guidance.

Q11: Do I need to use the chocolate chips?

It’s your call! If you’re in the mood for pure chocolate bliss without the chips, go for it. But, trust me, those chocolate chips bring an extra layer of joy and texture. Opt for store-bought sugar-free ones or whip up your own with this fantastic recipe.

Q12: How do I know when the muffins are done?

Achieving muffin perfection is an art! Stick a toothpick into the center; if it comes out clean or with a few crumbs, you’re golden. Another trick? Gently press the top of the muffin – if it springs back, consider it cooked; if it sinks, it’s still on the raw side.

Q13: How do I prevent the muffins from sticking to the pan?

No one likes a sticky situation, especially with muffins! Line those cups with paper or silicone liners for easy removal. Alternatively, give your pan a spritz of cooking spray, a touch of butter, or a swipe of oil. Invest in a non-stick muffin pan or go for the silicone version for a fuss-free baking experience.

Q14: How do I make the muffins more fluffy?

Let’s talk fluffiness! First, ensure your eggs and sour cream are cozy at room temperature. Next, whip those eggs until frothy before introducing the other wet ingredients. Remember, don’t overmix – we’re aiming for fluffy, not dense. And the golden rule: watch the bake time to keep those muffins moist and tender.
