How to Make the Best Keto Chocolate Muffins
Preheat oven to 350F.
Add the almond flour, cocoa powder, oat fiber, baking powder and salt to a large mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.
In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, butter, sour cream and Swerve.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix just until combined.
Add in the chocolate chips and continue mixing.
Using an ice cream scoop or two spoons, scoop the batter into a muffin pan lined with silicone liners or sprayed with nonstick spray. You can add a few chocolate chips over the top if you'd like.
Then bake for 18 minutes or until a toothpick, when inserted, comes out clean.
Because almond flour renders very tender muffins, you'll want them to cool for about 15 minutes before removing them from the muffin liners, to ensure they don't break apart.
These Double Chocolate Keto Muffins are not frosted, so leftover muffins can simply be stored on the counter, in an airtight container or muffin keeper, for up to a week.
Can I Freeze Keto Double Chocolate Muffins?
Absolutely! That's just another wonderful thing about this keto chocolate muffin recipe! They freeze amazingly. If you're in a meal prep mode and want to have some freezer meals prepared, these muffins are a wonderful idea. Make a double batch even!
Allow the Keto muffins to cool completely, wrap them individually in plastic wrap, then place them on a shelf in your freezer. Allow them to freeze solid before setting them in a freezer drawer or stacking on top of each other.
What can I Serve with Low Carb Chocolate Muffins?
Keto Chocolate Muffins are delicious served all my themselves. But a few fresh berries served along side the muffins add a fresh flavor and additional nutrients. If you're looking for extra decadence, homemade sugar-free whipped topping or chocolate ganache or even this homemade Caramel Sauce would be a really nice touch.
How Many Carbs are in a Chocolate Muffin?
Did you know there are approximately 50 grams of carbs in traditional chocolate muffins? WOW! That's not a problem with these Keto Double Chocolate Muffins! These muffins made with almond flour take all worry away by reducing the net carbs to just 5 grams per muffin!
What Brand of Chocolate Chips are Keto Friendly?
With low carb and Keto growing in popularity, so are Keto friendly products to choose from. And while, there are several options to choose from, Lily's Chocolate is a tried and true brand that bakes up beautifully. It doesn't have a strange texture or funny aftertaste like some brands. But if you want to try some of the other brands, just read the label to make sure all the ingredients are Keto friendly.
What is Oat Fiber? Is Oat Fiber Keto?
Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outer husks of oats. How healthy is oat fiber? It's pure insoluble fiber, which doesn't dissolve in water and isn't broken down in the digestive tract, so it has zero net carbs and is perfect for a Keto Diet. It helps give a more traditional texture and that's why I use it so often. Check out all the Keto Oat Fiber Recipes you can make!
What is a Substitute for Oat Fiber?
To get the best results, it's best to use oat fiber if you can. If you're unable to find it, try a combination of psyllium husk powder and coconut flour. Since both are very absorbent, you might have to add more liquid.
