  • KETO APPLE CINNAMON MUFFINS INGREDIENTS:

    This section is where I share a few suggestions and explanations for the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe.

    (You can find the exact amounts needed on the recipe card embedded below this section).

  • medium-sized apple
  • soft butter
  • defatted almond flour
    The right almond flour can make or break a recipe, especially when it comes to baking.
    That’s why I highly recommend using defatted almond flour.
    It’s very different from most other kinds of almond flours out there as it has most of its natural fat content removed and thus behaves very differently compared to other kinds of almond flour and is much better suited for most keto baking recipes.

    Most brands simply sell finely ground almond meal as almond flour, which can be fine for some recipes and is cheaper, but it has more calories (by a lot) and is not the best fit for most keto baking recipes.
    It has more fat and can cause recipe failures because of this, like melted cookies.

    Defatted almond flour like this one from Sukrin, is much lower in calories, has a naturally high protein content and – most importantly – is the best replacement for wheat flour I’ve ever come across (and I’ve tried a lot).

  • whole milk
    In my opinion, the muffins taste best when made with whole milk, but you can also use lower carb-alternatives like unsweetened almond milk instead.
  • erythritol
    Why erythritol?
    In my opinion, erythritol is the best keto-friendly sweetener.
    – it doesn’t spike your blood sugar,
    – it’s completely safe and
    – has a very fresh & natural sweet taste.

    Because of its natural origin and natural production process (fermentation), I also consider erythritol to be paleo-friendly.

    You can use other keto-friendly sweeteners that won’t spike your blood sugar as well, but be aware that you may have to add more or less sweetener if you do so.

    Erythritol is about 70% as sweet as sugar whereas other keto-friendly sweeteners like monk fruit and stevia are much sweeter than sugar.
    Keep that ratio in mind when using a 1:1 sugar replacement.

  • coconut flour
  • brown erythritol
  • eggs
  • baking powder
    look for a gluten-free version without corn starch for paleo-friendly option or make your own one
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla extract
    You can also use a vanilla bean in exchange.
    1 tsp = 1/2 bean

    HOW TO MAKE THE KETO APPLE CINNAMON MUFFINS:

     

    Easy Keto Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Almond Flour and Coconut Flour Mobile Featured Image

    Yields6 Servings
    Prep Time10 minsCook Time25 minsTotal Time35 mins

    Ingredients:
     1 medium-sized apple
      cup soft butter (2.6 oz/75g)
     ½ cup defatted almond flour (2.3 oz/65g)
     ¼ cup whole milk (2 fl oz/60ml)
     ¼ cup erythritol (1.8 oz/50g)
     ¼ cup coconut flour (1.1 oz/30g)
     2 tbsp brown erythritol (0.9 oz/25g)
     2 eggs
     ¾ tsp cinnamon

    1

    Wash your apple, quarter it and remove the core.

    Add it to a food processor and pulse a few times or grate it with a kitchen grater.

    Set the grated apple aside for now.
     

    2

    Preheat your oven to 350°F/180°C.
     

    3

    Add the soft butter, erythritol and vanilla extract to a large bowl and beat with a hand mixer for approx. 1-2 minutes until the butter is pale and fluffy.
     

    4

    Add the remaining ingredients for the muffin batter to the bowl and mix with a spatula until no chunks of flour are left.
     

    5

    Add 6 paper or silicone muffin liners into a muffin pan.
     

    6

    Distribute the muffin batter evenly among the muffin liners.
     

    7

    Bake for approx. 20-25 minutes in your preheated oven.

    ☝︎ Every oven is different, that's why the baking time in your oven might vary a bit from ours.

    Keep an eye on the muffins, as almond flour tends to burn a bit faster than regular all-purpose wheat flour.

    ☝︎ You can test if your muffins are done with the "toothpick test": prick the middle of the muffin with a toothpick - if it comes out "clean" and without any chunks of dough stuck on the toothpick, they're good to go.
    If not, you should leave them in the oven for a few more minutes.
     

    Storage:
    8

    Store the low carb apple cinnamon muffins in an air-tight container at room temperature and consume within 3 days.

    Tip: You can freeze these muffins!
    To do so, wrap them tightly in one layer of plastic wrap and one layer of aluminum foil and put them in your freezer.

    Let them defrost overnight at room temperature once you want to eat them.

    Q: How do you include Erythritol in your calculations?

    A: The short answer is: I don’t, and I can tell you why.

    
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol which your body can’t digest.
    If you ingest it, it won’t spike your blood sugar & it won’t release insulin (which is a good thing if you want to stay in ketosis).

    It passes through our system basically “untouched”.
    Because of this, you can subtract the carbs from erythritol completely, which is what I always do. 

    (I try to be as accurate as possible with this information, but values may vary because of natural occurring fluctuations and different products used.)
