How to Make Keto Snickerdoodle Muffins
Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix the almond flour, oat fiber, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a mixing bowl and set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, butter, sour cream, Swerve, heavy cream and vanilla extract.
Bake for 18 minutes or until a toothpick, when inserted comes out clean.
Mix the Swerve granular and ground cinnamon together and set aside for the topping.
While the muffins are still warm, brush the tops with the melted butter.
Sprinkle some of the cinnamon/Swerve mixture over the tops and dig in!! These are best served warm, especially right after adding the topping.
Tips for Making the Best Keto Snickerdoodle Muffins
I have yet to find a suitable replacement for oat fiber that works as well, giving them a texture that is so close to traditional muffins. The good news is that there are so many recipes you can make using oat fiber, so it’s a great thing to stock in your pantry!
Is Oat Fiber the Same as Oat Flour? Is Oat Fiber Keto?
Oat Fiber is not the same as Oat Flour, which is made from grinding oats. Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outer husks of oats and is pure insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and is not broken down in the digestive tract, so it’s Low Carb and Keto friendly.
The Oat Fiber is really important in this recipe! I use it in so many Keto dessert recipes, because of the amazing texture it gives whatever I am baking! It is hands down, the best ingredient I’ve baked with.
I use LifeSource Oat Fiber because they grind it to a very fine powder and has a mild flavor. The bag lasts a while, because you don’t need to use very much in your recipes.
I made so many Keto recipes with oat fiber like blueberry muffins, ricotta almond pancakes, coconut lime cupcakes, coffee crumb cake, chicken francese, chocolate chip cookies, focaccia and so many more!
