Ingredients in Keto Chocolate Chip Muffins
These low-carb muffins come together with minimal ingredients:
- Peanut butter
- Brown sugar swerve
- Vanilla extract
- Unsweetened almond milk
- Almond flour
- Cocoa powder
- Baking powder
- Sugar-free chocolate chips
How to Make Keto Chocolate Chip Muffins
First, whip together the butter, peanut butter, and swerve.
After whipping the butter, sugar and peanut butter together you add in eggs, almond milk, vanilla, almond flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and mix just until everything looks well incorporated and the mixture is smooth. Be sure not to over mix so your muffins come out nice and light.
The final step is to stir in the keto-friendly dark chocolate chips. I like to mix in most of them but set a few aside to press into the top of the muffins once they have been spooned into the muffin tin.
Can I Use a Different Flour?
No, I’ve found that almond flour works best for these double chocolate chip muffins. Using another grain-free flour won’t yield the same results.
Can I Use a Different Nut Butter?
Yes! Almond butter will also work in this recipe.
Tips for the BEST Keto Muffins
The key to this particular healthy chocolate chip muffins recipe is that the butter, keto sweetener and peanut butter (or almond butter) are whipped together to add air into the batter. This is what keeps them nice and light and this is how the recipe can yield so many. This is a step you cannot skip! If you are looking for a one bowl, no mixer keto muffin recipe try these Pumpkin Spice Muffins.
This recipe makes 18 muffins for me. The batter increases in volume because the butter, sugar and peanut butter are whipped. If you skip this step, your batter will be dense and will not yeild as many muffins.
You can store the almond flour chocolate chip muffins at room temperature for up to 1 week, or you can freeze them for up to 3 months.
