Fresh Raspberry Muffins cut in half and on a plate.

Grumpy absolutely loves raspberries. About the way I love blueberries. Since being on the Keto diet, I haven’t had much fruit in the house. As a matter of fact, the only fruit I’ve had in this house lately are raspberries.

Doing my research for baking Raspberry Muffins

Since I had little practice with baking since I started the diet, before making this particular recipe, I did a little bit of research on substituting flours. I knew that would probably be my biggest deterrent!

Types of flours used in keto baking

Two of the most common flours used in Keto baking are almond flour and coconut flour. There are several other keto friendly ingredients that you can bake with, but for my first time, I did not want to be too complicated.

  • Almond Flour – this flour has no binding agents. It is mostly fat, so when baking with it, you want to watch how much and what type of fat you may be using with it in your recipe.
  • Coconut Flour – when using coconut flour, you will want to have a larger volume of wet ingredients. I found that it “swells” when liquid is added to it and it acts like a thickening agent.

What Sweeteners can you use in Keto Baking?

  • Erythritol (I use the Swerve brand)
  • Stevia
  • Monkfruit

For the sugar, I opted for granulated Swerve brand (Erythritol). It is the one I felt most comfortable with using for my first recipe, not to mention, it is the one I have worked with the most. Swerve is an approved sweetener for the Keto diet and it has no effect on blood sugar. I have since used Monkfruit sweetenter also and have great results with that product.

Baked Raspberry Muffin Cut in half

I hope you will enjoy these Raspberry Muffins as my first baking experiment on Keto! If your into a more traditional cinnamon flavored muffin, this recipe for Keto Cinnamon Collagen Muffins is a great choice!

Almond flour has more fat than regular flour, which can cause your recipe to burn quicker. For this reason, I have lowered my oven temperature to 325 for this recipe. I used a silicone muffin pan with paper lines, however, I made 1 muffin without the liner and found that I probably didn't need the liners at all. What I may try differently when making this recipe again is I may raise the heat to 350 if using a silicone liner and reduce the baking time.

      I was pretty proud of this being it was my first baked recipe of my own 🙂 thanks Claudia!

    This is our favorite keto recipe so far. (And I’ve made a bunch of stuff!). I’ve made it with fresh and frozen raspberries. Fresh are best. Have also used fresh blackberries. Good but like raspberries better. I’ve also used these for dessert with a few more fresh berries piled on and topped with whipping cream. I’m sure this would work with strawberries as well. We LOVE that these are only one net carb. They’re filling and such a fun breakfast choice. Thank you!!!!

    5-star recipe!

    This has to be the best muffin recipe in the history of the planet! I’ve had people think they weren’t Keto because they’re so good. Thanks for this recipe! My first muffin making attempts was a dense, tasteless creation. Almost made me think I couldn’t do Keto until I tried this one.

    Within the space of 3 days, I made 36 if these wonders.

    Question: I’ve had a request for a peanut butter muffin (which just so happens to be what I tried in the beginning). I’m wondering if you think this recipe can be adapted to make one? And, if so, how would you suggest I do that?

    BTW, I’m thinking of trying to turn this into a cake.

      Yay! So glad you loved these! I actually have a raspberry coffee cake recipe on the blog. I served the coffee cake at a jewelry party I had to non-keto friends and they gobbled it right up! Go ahead and give that one a try if you like.

      I’m not sure about the peanut butter in this particular muffin recipe. I will see if there is something I can do to create one! Its about muffin time here anyway! Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me know! 🙂

        I’ll try your cake recipe. Took this one and didn’t add the raspberries or almond. Instead, I made a cinnamon Mud with 3 teaspoons of cinnamon, 2 tablespoons of Surkin Gold, and 2 tablespoons of water. I mixed it separately then folded it in, found a recipe for glaze to put on top. Could do just 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. It was so good!

    These look delicious! Can these be made with just coconut flour? My son has a nut allergy and can’t have almond four. Thanks

    • Shelby January 14, 2019 at 6:56 am - Reply

      Hi Dana, the use of coconut flour would change the liquid ratio. I am making a test version of a similar recipe today for a single serving raspberry muffin in the microwave. It is likely you can omit the almond flour, but most likely would have to make another type of adjustment to accommodate it. I am new to keto baking, so I will shoot you an email when I am done to let you know how it worked.

    Wondering if I can use vanilla extract instead of almond extract in this recipe? I got all the ingredients at the store but for got the almond extract and want to make these now lol.

      Hi Sheetal, you absolutely can swap out the almond for vanilla. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

    These sound really delicious! I cannot have dairy products, do you think almond milk would work in place of the heavy cream? Thanks!

    • Shelby March 25, 2019 at 3:18 pm - Reply

      Hi Sandy, Thank you 🙂 Almond milk will not be as thick as heavy cream. A better substitute would be coconut cream for a dairy free version. Good luck and let me know how it turns out!

      Hi Mark, I’m sorry your batch of muffins didn’t turn out well for you. I would love to be able to help you be successful with this recipe because it really is delicious! Keto baking can be difficult at first so don’t give up. First of all, I would need to know what your flours were. There are different types of almond flour out there and it could have something to do with what type you used. Usually when you use coconut flour, your batter will absorb a lot of liquid, so I’m not sure why they turned out mushy. They will be soft and tender, but shouldn’t be mushy. Next, it will make a difference if you used fresh raspberries or frozen. Frozen will have a lot of water in them. I haven’t attempted this recipe with frozen yet. Lastly, the saltiness, it could have something to do with the baking powder. I tend to think baking powder will add a saltiness to something, it may be your more sensitive to that. I would just leave the salt out of the recipe entirely if you thought they were too salty. Feel free to email me if you need more help. Let me know what products you used and I will do the best I can to help you out! Thanks for stopping by.

    Beware, this is NOT Keto Friendly. Using all of the ingredients mentioned above and half of the raspberrries recommended, and making 18 muffins, it is actually 7 carbs per muffin! Not 3 as stated in this blog. This is NOT a Keto friendly recipe unless you enjoy using 7 carbs of your max 50 daily carb allowance on one tiny muffin. Wasted a lot of money at the store trusting this recipe. Avoid this poorly researched and deceptive article!

    • Shelby Law Ruttan May 12, 2019 at 8:45 pm - Reply

      Claire, I don’t know what makes you think this is not keto friendly. Whatever you are using to calculate your nutrition is apparently incorrect. These muffins are 3 carbs and only 1 net carb per serving. It is likely whatever you are using to calculate is counting the sweetener as carbs. I am allowing your comment to be approved because you are incorrect. Please get your facts straight before you lash out at others about spending a lot of money to trust a recipe that you should have researched first yourself before actually making it.

        Your calories are off by about 40, it is around 139 calories but carbs are under 2g and definitely keto. I am in the process of making these. I am using fat free egg creations in place of regular eggs so my macros are calories 129, fat 10.8, carbs 3.9, fiber2.3 and net carbs are1.6. Thanks for the recipe. I can’t wait to try it.

        • Shelby Law Ruttan April 7, 2020 at 11:29 am - Reply

          Hi Jenny, the nutrition information depends greatly on what brands/products you use. I used Carb manager app to calculate. Great idea to use the egg creations, hope you enjoy the recipe!

    • Cory P August 15, 2019 at 6:41 pm - Reply

      Just to provide my own insight on this, using a reliable macro nutrient tracking app I came out with the following per serving/cupcake (12 total servings): 137 calories, 12.2g fat, 4.1g protein, 4.72g TOTAL carbs, 2.52g fiber, 2.2g NET carbs. While it may be slightly different, this recipe is still very Keto friendly. Even with a 25g daily carb limit, I can eat these to my heart’s content. Thank you for the recipe!!

    I just made these and they are delicious but can you please tell me how each one can have only one net carb when coconut flour is so high in carbs?

    • Shelby Law Ruttan October 19, 2019 at 7:11 am - Reply

      Hi Wilma, Thank you, I’m so happy you enjoyed the muffins! This recipe is made of ingredients that are all keto-friendly ingredients. Each ingredient has it’s own nutritional value. Coconut flour may be high in carbs, but it is also high in fiber. There is 1/4 cup in this recipe. 1/4 cup has 12 carbs but 9 grams of fiber. That leaves it at only 3 net carbs for the flour alone. There are 12 muffins in this recipe and when all factors are brought together, they calculate to 1 net carb. I highly recommended visiting a website such as fatsecret.com to calculate the nutrition information on your own if you are concerned about the information here. I have calculated this on my own at fatsecret with the brands I used to make the recipe. My information provided here is only a courtesy and should be used only as a guide. If do you have any more questions about nutrition facts, I highly recommend calculating what you are making on your own.
