The flavor in these salted caramel muffins is absolutely incredible! They get their sweetness from both the salted caramel sauce and salted caramel collagen and together, they are just out of this world delicious.
Made with a combination of super fine almond flour and oat fiber that's ground to a fine powder, the texture in these gluten-free muffins cannot be beat. They are light, fluffy and have a texture that's very similar to traditional muffins.
The Salted Caramel Collagen by Perfect Keto is an added bonus in flavor, texture and health benefits. I personally use this collagen in my bulletproof coffee every morning and absolutely love it.
If you aren't a coffee fan, you can use Perfect Keto's collagen in your smoothies, mix it in almond or coconut milk, bake with it in many of favorite Keto recipes or simply use it in just plain water.
It's especially delicious in this Salted Caramel Keto Muffin recipe. You just can't imagine how amazing the flavors are in these muffins!

How to Make Keto Salted Caramel Gluten Free Muffins
Preheat oven to 350F.
Whisk the almond flour, oat fiber, baking powder and salted caramel collagen in a mixing bowl, then set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, butter, sour cream, Swerve confectioners , heavy cream, ¼ cup of the salted caramel sauce and vanilla extract.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together using a hand mixer or whisk, until well combined.
Using an ice cream scoop, fill the silicone baking muffin cups with the batter.
Bake for 20-23 minutes or until a toothpick, when inserted comes out clean.
Drizzle the remaining ¼ cup of salted caramel sauce over the tops.
Tips for Making Keto Collagen Muffins
- Baking with collagen will render a very delicate and pillow-like muffin. For this reason, always let your muffins cool for 20 minutes in the muffin tin before transferring them to a rack to finish cooling completely.
- To prevent gluten free muffins from having an eggy taste, allow the eggs to come to room temp before mixing with the other ingredients.
- By using a mixture of oat fiber and superfine ground almond flour, you'll prevent homemade low carb muffins from have a grainy texture.
- To reheat them, just place them on a microwave safe plate and cover with a damp paper towel and reheat for about 10 seconds or until desired temp is reached.
About the Keto Salted Caramel Sauce
This recipes uses about half of my Salted Caramel Sauce recipe. It's made with both brown Swerve and Swerve confectioners, so it's completely sugar-free. ¼ cup is used in the muffin batter and another ¼ cup to drizzle over the tops.
If you're wondering what other Keto salted caramel desserts you can make with it, try these Salted Caramel Cheesecake Bars or Salted Caramel Cheesecake Mousse, they're both divine!
You can also use it in your bulletproof coffee, serve over Keto Ice Cream, low carb Pancakes, gluten free Waffles or cheesecake. And you might even be tempted to eat it right off the spoon, it's that good!
Is Collagen Good for Keto?
Absolutely! Because collagen is needed by our bodies for many reasons, when you're on Keto or any type of fat loss diet, you can potentially fall short on proper amounts of collagen. Supplementing with a quality collagen product, like Perfect Keto's, ensures your body gets what it needs to function properly.
Health Benefits of Collagen
Collagen plays a vital role in your overall health. Almost everything in your body is made up with collagen. From your hair skin and nails, to your tissues and organs, they all require collagen to perform optimally.
As we begin to age, our body begins to slow down its production of collagen. According to this article by Perfect Keto, a collagen supplement aids in the following:
- Healthy skin and nails
- Helps your muscles relax before bedtime
- Curbs sweet cravings
- Hydrates hair
- Speeds up joint recovery after a workout
- Supports digestive health
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.

Hi! can you do something else instead of Collagen? Thanks for the reply!

I am not sure what you'd want to replace it with. If you don't want to use the collagen, you could try to just omit it and use the sauce for flavor.
Those look delicious!
