These easy keto raspberry muffins with almond flour are the best low-carb muffins with moist crumbs and juicy raspberries. Bonus, these are gluten-free muffins, and one mini muffin only contains 1 gram of net carbs!
How to make keto raspberry muffins?
Raspberries are the lowest-carb fruits, and therefore, they are ideal for making keto muffins. These keto raspberry muffins are very easy to make with fresh or frozen raspberries. All you need are a few simple ingredients:
- Almond flour – use ultra-fine almond flour, not an almond meal, or your keto muffins will be grainy or darker in color. Don’t know how to choose your keto flour? Read my keto flour guide!
- Erythritol – or any keto crystal sweetener you love like allulose. Read how to choose your keto sweeteners.
- Vanilla extract
- Baking powder
- Eggs – at room temperature. Note that you can’t use egg replacers in this keto recipe.
- Melted coconut oil – melt the oil and measure melted. You can also use avocado oil. Melted butter is another option, but the crumb is much denser, so I recommend a keto-friendly oil for the low-carb muffin recipe.
- Cinnamon – this is optional, but I love the flavor it adds to the batter.
- Raspberries – fresh or frozen, don’t thaw the berries before adding to the batter.
Can I use frozen berries?
Yes, you can use frozen raspberries in this keto raspberry muffin recipe. Actually, frozen berries are better because they won’t sink to the bottom of the muffin pan.
If you want to use fresh raspberries, roll 1 cup of raspberries into 1 tablespoon of coconut flour before adding to the batter. This prevents the berries from sinking to the bottom of the muffin hole.
What muffin tin should I choose?
You can bake these muffins in a regular 12-hole muffin pan or 3 batches, each baked in a 12-mini muffin pan.
Why making baby-size raspberry muffins?
On a keto diet, we limit our carbs intake, so sometimes baking smaller sizes of your favorite food is a great way to limit the amount you eat. If you are starting the keto diet, read my article on starting the keto diet!

- Less baking time – a maximum of 15 minutes for a batch of 36 baby muffins!
- Rise better – when you bake with almond flour, you should expect to flatter baked goods. In fact, almond flour is heavier than wheat-based flour, and therefore the muffins won’t rise as much. That’s why baking your keto muffins in a mini muffin pan is a trick to help them raise a bit more and increase their fluffy texture.
- Easy to eat with small hands – kids love them!
- Defrost fast – if you freeze them, they get back to room temperature in only 3 hours to fix your sweet cravings in no time.
How to serve raspberry muffins?
Raspberries are slightly sour, so you can top your muffins with a few adds-on to increase their sweetness, including:
- Powdered erythritol – sieve some sugar-free powdered sweetener onto the muffins.
- Cream cheese – add a dollop of 1 teaspoon cream cheese per regular muffin in the center of the muffin before baking. A keto raspberry cream cheese muffin is less sour as cream cheese balances very well the sourness of raspberries.
- Sugar-free chocolate chips – add 1/4 cup of sugar-free white chocolate chips into the batter to make keto raspberry chocolate muffins.
How to store keto raspberry muffins?
These muffins store for up to 5 days in the fridge in an airtight container. You can also freeze them and thaw them a few hours before serving at room temperature.
How many servings per recipe?
In the picture, I baked mini muffins, but the recipe bakes very well into a regular muffin pan.
This keto muffin recipe serves:
- 12 regular size muffins – use a 12-hole muffin pan filled with silicone cases or non-stick paper cases.
- 36 mini muffins – bake the recipe in 3 mini muffin pan of 12 holes, line with mini muffin paper cups, or lightly oil the muffin holes with coconut oil.
Serving size and net carbs
The net carbs below are for both muffin sizes.
- For 1 regular-size muffin from a 12-hole muffin pan – you will get 3.3 grams of net carbs per muffin.
- For 1 mini muffin, as in the picture – you will get 1.1 grams of net carbs per mini muffin.
How does it taste?
These muffins are moist almond flour muffins with juicy pieces of raspberries bursting in the center. Since it’s an almond flour recipe, it has a light almond flavor. The smaller they are, the moister and fluffier they will be!
