They can be a bit crumbling if you eat them right away but will firm up as they cool. Since these keto pecan pie muffins are so good when  you eat them warm, this may be one low carb muffin that you eat with a fork!

    Carbs in Pecans

    Pecans are a nut that are quite keto friendly. There are 1 g net carbs in 1/4 cup chopped pecans. Of course, you don’t want to go overboard with nuts on the keto diet as the carbs and fat can add up quickly but for desserts, it is okay to add some nuts for flavor and texture. Of course, pecan pie muffins would be pecan pie without the nuts!

    Tips for Making Low Carb Pecan Pie Muffins

    It’s not complicated to make these keto muffins. Everything is added to one bowl, mixed, poured into liners and baked. But there are a few key elements to making these pecan pie muffins that you might want to keep in mind when baking.

    • Use muffin liners – This will prevent the pecan pie muffin batter from sticking to your muffin tin even if you have a non-stick muffin pan.
    • Spray liners with cooking spray – These keto pecan pie muffins can be sticky. To prevent them from sticky the wrapper and make the wrapper easy to peel off, spray the liners with a little bit of cooking spray (coconut oil, avocado oil or butter spray)
    • Fill liners to the top with batter – Pecan pie muffins don’t rise very much, so go ahead and fill the liner to the top with the muffin batter.
    • Cooling – If you want a muffin that you can handle and eat on the go, it’s best to wait until these muffins cool completely before eating. But these keto pecan pie muffins are really good when you eat them right out of the oven because the center is still gooey and warm.

    Store leftover low carb muffins in the refrigerator for 4-5 days or at room temperature for 2-3 days. These muffins will harden as they set out especially if you leave them at room temperature. You can freeze these keto muffins as well.

    1. My husband is a sweets lover and these were just what the doctor ordered! These are so good, my husband ate almost one whole batch by himself. I’m definitely making these again, possibly in different flavors!

    2. Just made these for my hubby and they smell HEAVENLY…but, I think I didn’t let my butter soften enough because they seem a little juicy… Totally my bad. I will make sure to soften the butter completely next time. He has not tried them yet but we shall see. I am loving your recipe site.

    3. Gone Keto on the advise of my Endocrinologist and was doing well but feeling a little down missing out whilst everyone was indulging in Christmas treats. Then I found you Annie. These muffins are ridiculously good! Forget the Keto side they are my dream in a muffin. My kids and husband demolished the first batch ( I got one) so I waited until they all went out for the day and made myself a secret batch. In the garage ‘Meat’ freezer where I can grab one each day for my work lunch box on the way out when I feel the need. Thank you so much. Your recipes, videos and website are a life saver.
