How do I make Keto Muffins?
The key to this particular 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.
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.
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1/2 cup low carb peanut butter or almond butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar swerve
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup Lilly's sugar free dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using an eletric mixer add butter, peanut butter and sugar.
Cream together on medium speed until completely combined and the texture is smooth.
Add eggs and vanilla, mix together on low speed until well combined.
Add cocoa, almond flour, baking powder and salt.
Mix together on low speed until just combined, be careful not to overmix you want the mixture to be light and airy.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop into greased or lined muffin tins until 3/4 full.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
This 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.
