Keto muffins come in all sorts of wonderful flavors. Check out this amazing collection of the best sugar-free, low carb muffin recipes. 45 amazing recipes to choose from!
It’s no secret that I love muffins. You might even go so far as to call me a muffin addict. There’s no shame in loving muffins this much, is there? They are one of my favorite keto snacks.
I daresay that I have more keto muffins recipes than any other blogger out there. No surprise, really. I’ve been doing this low carb thang for over a decade and I am quite proficient at keto baking. And did I mention that I love muffins?
My love of muffins did not start in my low carb days. Oh no, I’ve had a very longstanding love of all things muffin as far back as I can remember. It might be hereditary, as my mother loved them too.
And now I am passing this obsession on to my own kids!
The Benefits of Keto Muffins
Thank goodness that my favorite breakfast treat is so easy to make low carb and gluten-free.
It took some trial and error at the beginning of my keto baking career to get low carb muffins right. But once I figured out the right proportions of low carb flours and other ingredients, I couldn’t stop making more variations and flavors.
Here’s what I love about low carb muffins:
- Easy to make: Muffins are one of the best recipes for a keto beginner to try. They are more forgiving than cake and usually take a single bowl to prepare.
- Easy meal prep: Almost without exception, keto muffins can be made ahead and frozen. I make big batches and pop them into a ziplock bag. They can last for months and warm nicely in an oven or microwave.
- Portability: Muffins make a great grab-and-go breakfast or snack. Take them to work, to the beach, to a party, or wherever you need to go. Some recipes, like my Keto Pecan Pie Muffins, are even sturdy enough for travel.
- Family Friendly: Depending on your choice of flavors, muffins are kid friendly! Add a few sugar-free chocolate chips and they’re instantly a hit.
- Ideal for dietary restrictions: Whether you’re nut-free, dairy-free, or something-else-free, there is a keto muffin recipe for you!
- Infinite flavor options: Muffins can be customized to suit your tastes. Don’t like cranberries? Add blueberries instead! Not a nut fan? Skip them or add chocolate chips. The sky’s the limit for keto muffin flavors.

I am so grateful to have found your recipes Carolyn. However I too, am having trouble with some of the baking since I live at a higher altitude. Here are the rules that apply to conventional baking at a higher altitude: High Altitude Baking — Good Rules of Thumb
Oven Temperature. Increase by 15-25℉ …
Baking Time. Decrease by 20-30% …
Flour. Increase by 1 tbsp at 3,500 ft, and by 1 tbsp per 1,500 ft. …
Sugar. Decrease by 1 tbsp per cup. …
Liquids. Increase by 1 to 2 tbsp per 1,000 ft, and 1 ½ tsp per additional 1,000 ft. …
As you can imagine it is difficult to translate these ‘rules of thumb’ to keto baking. Any advice would be much appreciated. I am happy to experiment.
I am so sorry, Jane but I’ve rarely baked at altitude. I do believe most of those rules apply still. When we were in Idaho a few summers ago, I found that my muffins needed more structure so increasing the flour a bit is important, for sure!

Thanks Carolyn…I was living in Mexico for 22 years at 6500 feet and boy that made baking interesting…home in Canada now at a much lower altitude (Edmonton, 1500′) but still seems to make my keto/low carb recipes lacking the rise I would like. Oh for heaven’s sake, I haven’t said which recipe I am trying to make: strawberry cream cheese scones and key lime scones. I have tried a tsp. of psyllium husk and an additional egg and that helped but could still be better. I shall let you know how I make out. I drool over your recipes constantly.
Good luck! I might even recommend a bit of protein powder (whey or egg white) in the scones to help with that…
I made your Maple Walnut Muffins on this list (from the Swerve site: https://swervesweet.com/recipes/maple-walnut-muffins)
I used a little brown Swerve along with the regular Swerve. Warm with butter: so, so good! This will be in my regular rotation now. Thanks so much.
Is there anything that can replace the whey protein powder I cannot have whey but the coffee cake muffin recipe looks so good.
Egg white protein powder works to.
All your recipes look so delicious and I used to be able to make them. Now I have become allergic to eggs so cannot make these delicious looking recipes. Only good thing….I feel much better without the eggs now !
Thank you for sharing my Chocolate and Cream Cheese Muffins! I hope your readers love them 🙂
Do you have a physical book?
would love to have it on my shelf.
Are you kidding? I have FIVE and one more due out in December… 🙂
Thank you very much for this round up, Carolyn!
I was looking for some low carb muffin recipes because their portable and freezable. Which means I can eat breakfast, and I can stay on track. I didn’t expect to find 35 in one post, sweet and savory to boot. And so much of them look absolutely delicious. Definitely speaking my language here. thanks again
Do you have a carb free bran muffin recipe? I didn’t see one on the list.
Bran is not typically low carb. There are ways to fake it with flax but a lot of people don’t like flax.
I’ve loved the Maple Walnut Muffins from Swerve Sweet for a year now, and I am NOT at all shocked that the recipe is yours! Of course! they’re a go-to whenever I want a snack I can grab on the run, or pack in lunches or sneak mid-day when work is boring! Thanks 🙂
So glad you like them!
wish there was a way to print all in 1 click instead of going to each recipe, scrolling to find the recipe and then printing.
I’ve been recently looking for some keto recipes low in saturated fat and I tried four of your muffin recipes that fit the bill this weekend. They are really sensational and now I have a stash in the freezer to use for a healthy breakfast or snack. Thanks so much!
So glad to hear it!
This is a great list! Thanks for sharing my Chocolate Cream Cheese Muffins 🙂
They look great! Glad to share.
Thanks for including my blueberry muffins!
What a great collection of Keto friendly muffins! Thanks for including my recipe in this most impressive lineup!
I love the collection of keto muffin recipes. Do you have a book version of all of these, so I can have them all in one place, and be adventurous: soemtimes I know I want a muffin, but I make it in the morning. A book would be easier for me to leaf through to find what I’m in the mood for. Thanks!
I do not have a muffin specific book, no.

Do you have high altitude versions of your baking recipes?
I live in Denver (5280) so baking is always a little more of an adventure!
I have never baked at altitude but a few readers have told me that you make many of the same changes you would for conventional baking.
