Keto cinnamon muffins are bakery-style cinnamon muffins with only 2.3 grams of net carb per muffin. Plus, they are gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free.

LOW CARB CINNAMON MUFFINS

Keto cinnamon muffins – only 2.3 grams of net carb!

The keto cinnamon muffins are great to start the day and bring back some cinnamon rolls memories without the carbs! Indeed, one muffin contains only 2.3 grams of net carbs and 5 grams of protein to keep you full.

KETO CINNAMON ROLL MUFFINS

Easy flaxseed muffins recipe

You don’t have to be a chef to bake, and these muffins are definitely great ones if you’re a keto beginner cook! All you need to make the keto cinnamon muffins are a few simple ingredients.

  • Flaxmeal – you can use either golden flaxseed meal or brown flaxseed meal. I recommend golden flaxseed meal because it doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste as the brown flaxseed meal.
  • Almond flour – or almond meal if preferred. You can also substitute almond meal for sunflower seed flour, the same amount for a nut-free keto muffin recipe. Learn more about keto-friendly flours.
  • Eggs – you need eggs to make fluffy muffins, so don’t try to replace them with more flaxseed meal. It wouldn’t work.
  • Cinnamon – of course, lots of ground cinnamon is what makes the muffins delicious.
  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener – I always use an Erythritol and Monk fruit crystal sweetener blend, but you can also use xylitol with the same amount. Xylitol may have a minty aftertaste, so be aware of that. Read more about keto-friendly sweeteners.
  • Unrefined coconut oil – I love the light coconut flavor of coconut oil in those low-carb cinnamon muffins. However, you can also use melted butter.
  • Unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk.
  • Baking powder – or half baking soda.

How to customize your keto cinnamon muffins?

This is a very versatile recipe, and you can play a lot with it. I recommend trying some of the following add-ons:

  • Chopped nuts –  add 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts, hazelnuts, or almonds. Nuts and cinnamon marry really well together.
  • Coconut – add 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut for a coconut cinnamon muffin.
  • Berries – add 1/3 cup frozen or fresh blueberries or raspberries.
  • Chocolate chips – add 1/3 cup sugar-free chocolate chips.
  • Grated zucchini and chocolate chips – adding 1/4 cup grated zucchini (squeeze out the zucchini juice before adding!) with 1/3 cup sugar-free chocolate chips. This was the most delicious and surprising flavor I tried. I highly recommend that.

PALEO CINNAMON MUFFINS

Keto flaxseed muffins and flaxseed meal carbs?

You probably wonder why flaxseed meal is a great addition to these keto cinnamon muffins. Well, flaxseed meal is one of the lowest carbs flour to bake with!

In fact, 100 gram (3.5 oz) of flaxseed meal contains only 0.2 grams of net carbs. It’s the best flour to create muffins without blowing your carb count.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a non-stick 12-hole muffins tray with paper cups or grease the holes slightly with coconut oil. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, whisk the liquid ingredients together. If you are using melted coconut oil, make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature. If you add melted coconut oil on cold eggs (eggs coming straight away from the fridge), the coconut oil makes lumps and solidifies. To avoid that, use melted butter or eggs at room temperature.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients onto the dry and combine until it forms a thick muffin batter.
  • Fill each muffin hole with the batter. I recommend using a mechanical ice cream scoop to be precise and create muffins of the same size (and the same amount of carbs per serving).
  • In a small bowl, prepare the cinnamon sugar-free sugar. Combine sugar-free crystal sweetener and cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar-free sugar on top of each muffin before baking. Keep some to dip the top of the hot muffins into if you like, optional but tasty!
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean or with no crumbs on it.
  • Cool down 10 minutes in the baking tray, then dip each muffin top into the sugar-free cinnamon sugar. As the muffins are still hot, the toppings will stick to the top adding a lovely sweet cinnamon flavor and crunch.
  • Transfer the muffins to a cooling rack and cool for 1 hour before eating to enjoy the best flavor and texture.

Sugar-free icing

  • Combine sugar-free powdered sweetener with 1- 3 teaspoons of almond milk. Add the milk gradually and stop when it reaches your favorite texture. The more liquid you add, the thinner the icing becomes.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon on top of each muffin and enjoy!

Storage

  • You can store the muffins with icing on top in the fridge for up to 2 days. You can store them for up to 4 days without the icing.

Freezing

  • Freeze your muffins in an airtight container or zip bag without sugar-free icing. Defrost the muffin the day before at room temperature. You can rewarm the muffin in a toaster oven for 2 minutes or half the muffins and bring them into the toaster and eat with butter.

    Carine, thank you so much for this recipe. I have been doing keto for a while and this recipe is light and delicious. I used butter and no icing and it was really good with the sugar on top. I think next time I will add a little more cinnamon to the mix and maybe ginger with some walnuts. Again.. thank you for creating this and sharing.. I will be tweaking and using the recipe a lot in the future! Cheers!

  2. 4 stars
    These were pretty good but kind of bland. That being said I didn’t make the icing. I think next time I will either add salt or replace the coconut oil with salted butter. I still like them though!

      Updating my review! The next day the muffins were excellent–I just made a double batch! Thanks for this great recipe!

  3. SO EXCITED FOR THESE. Huge cinnamon addict. 🤣 any chance you’ve experimented with just egg whites and/or gelatin to bind? I’m sensitive to egg yolks and have had success making AIP recipes with gelatin to set but never actually replaced eggs 😶 xoxo

  4. 5 stars
    Delicious! Tried this today (did half the recipe) plus i baked it in a 7″ pyrex dish & sliced into 16 small pieces. Can’t decide if i like them better warm or cold. Everything that i try from your site is always 5 stars! Thank you!

  5. 5 stars
    Delicious! We added chopped nuts, omitted icing. Our new favorite muffin recipe! We both follow the keto diet, my husband kept asking..are you sure we can eat these? Thanks for another great recipe!

    • I wouldn’t add chia seeds simply because they are highly liquid absorbent and it make the muffins very dry. Any other seeds will be fine like sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine

    These cinnamon muffins are delicious! I’ve made them a couple of times now and wrap them individually and freeze them so I can enjoy them with a cup of coffee or as an afternoon sweet snack. I will continue to make these and always have on hand. Easy to make, I definitely like using the silicone baking cups they just fall out. I’ve made them with Lily’s chocolate chips and without, both were good. I’ve frosted them and not, still delicious!

    • I love the chocolate chips addition in those muffins! Thanks for sharing and for making my recipes, Stay safe at home. Talk to you soon, XOXO Carine.
