How to Make Easy Gluten-Free Low Carb Muffins
The instructions for making paleo keto muffins are are very easy to follow and deliver the results you desire. There’s no way to mess this recipe up as long as you use the right quantity of ingredients and bake them at the suggested temperature.
As with any muffins recipe, there are four basic steps to make them from scratch.
- Start by preheating the oven to 350F and grease well your muffin pan, so the muffins don’t stick to the bottom of the pan. I recommend using silicone muffin liners.
- Prepare the dry and wet ingredients separately. In one bowl combine the almond flour, sweetener, and baking powder. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients: eggs, coconut oil, heavy whipping cream (or coconut cream if paleo). Stir together the contents of the two bowls until you get the perfect muffins batter consistency.
- Fill each muffin cup with batter.
- Bake the keto muffins for 18-20 minutes or until the tops are nice and golden. Keep an eye on them because the baking time may vary. You know they are ready if the toothpick comes out clean.
This recipe yields about 6 big keto muffins or about 12 mini keto breakfast muffins.
Keto Raspberry Frosting for Muffins
If you choose to make the raspberry frosting you will need:
- mascarpone cheese – you can use high-fat cream cheese but make sure to bring it to room temperature before mixing with the rest of the ingredients.
- raspberries fresh or frozen
- heavy whipping cream
- sweetener – feel free to not add any sweeteners
