Watch this quick step-by-step video to see exactly how easy it is to make the best keto chocolate muffins.

Ingredients for Keto Chocolate Muffins

These perfectly moist and rich muffins need only a few low carb ingredients. All the ingredients are grain-free and sugar-free.

In this recipe, I also experimented with a different gluten-free flour: golden flaxseed meal, and I’m impressed. 

These perfectly moist and rich muffins need only a few low carb ingredients. All the ingredients are grain-free and sugar-free. You'll love these almond flour keto chocolate muffins.

Here are all the ingredients needed: 

  • Eggs – use large eggs at room temperature to avoid that eggy taste.
  • Almond flour – I highly recommend using super-fine almond flour that’s made by grinding up blanched almonds (skins removed). You will get a much lighter, fluffier texture with a less grainy taste in the final chocolate muffins.
  • Golden flaxseed meal – replace with coconut flour.
  • Powdered Sweetener -I used my favorite Erythritol and Monk Fruit Sweetener that has no after-taste, and it’s zero carbs ( (Use “LOWCARBSPARK10” at checkout for 10% discount).
  • Cocoa powder – chose a high-quality cocoa powder for the best chocolate flavor.
  • Espresso powder – This one is optional, but I highly recommend it as it enhances and intensifies the chocolate taste
  • Unsalted butter – for an extra butter flavor.
  • Heavy cream or coconut cream

How to Make Keto Chocolate Muffins

Well, these gluten-free chocolate muffins are easy to make in just one bowl. 

You are going to love these Paleo Chocolate Muffins that are  incredibly chocolatey, moist yet fluffy with crispy tops. Enjoy scrumptious which are only 3g net carbs and the perfect for breakfast or a quick snack.

You can watch the step-by-step video I made to see exactly how easy it is to make these scrumptious muffins and what’s the texture of the batter before baking.

  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the sweetener and a pinch of salt.
  2. Add the dry ingredients and mix until no lumps remain. 
  3. Stir in the whipping cream and warm water using an electric mixer.
  4. Incorporate the softened butter and sugar-free chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.
  5. Divide the batter into your muffin cups and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the top is firm. Keep an eye on them, as this varies from oven to oven. 
Learn how to make the best keto and paleo chocolate muffins. They are super low in carbs, fluffy and moist with a crispy top! Only low carb ingredients are needed to make them.

Are These Chocolate Muffins Paleo?

These grain-free chocolate muffins are paleo if you make a few easy replacements:

  • butter to coconut oil 
  • heavy cream to canned coconut milk
  • the sweetener to a paleo-approved sweetener such as coconut sugar.

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or grease them with butter.
  • In a large mixing bowl, crack 5 large eggs and a pinch of salt. Using an electric mixer, whisk for about 30 seconds on medium speed until frothy.
  • Add the powdered sweetener and continue mixing until it is completely dissolved.
  • Add the dry ingredients: almond flour, golden flaxseed meal, baking powder, instant coffee, and cocoa powder. Continue mixing until a thick batter starts to form.
  • Add the heavy cream and warm water and continue mixing.
  • Switch to a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to stir well the chocolate muffin batter, which is pretty thick.
  • Incorporate the softened butter.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate.
  • Evenly divide the batter between the muffin cups (I used ¼ cup mixture for each muffin). Flatten the tops and add extra chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, until they look firm and a toothpick inserted in the middle of a chocolate muffin comes out clean.
  • Let them cool down for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool down.
  • Serve them with your favorite keto vanilla ice cream, sugar-free maple syrup, or delicious keto vanilla frosting.

    OMG! I have been trying out many low carb dessert recipes, especially chocolate ones, and this is THE BEST brownie/cake/muffin!! Hubby loves chocolate and when we went low carb he was missing dessert. He absolutely said these are the best I have made! Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to try more of your recipes!

    Love these, the flavor and texture is great! I made the recipe as written, however, the batter was thin, not thick and it made 20 muffins and not 12. I re-read the recipe to make sure that I wasn’t putting in too much liquid. Any advice? Or maybe I shouldn’t complain that I made more to enjoy, LOL!
    Thanks!

    My husband was just diagnosed with diabetes. I have been searching for new recipes to accommodate our new lifestyle. Baker by trade, I have not had much experience with GF/SF recipes. To my surprise, this was a delicious muffin! The texture was great and an unsuspecting person would not likely know the difference. I will keep this one as a go-to recipe for chocolate cravings. Five-stars all the way!
