Key ingredients & substitutions

  • Almond flour – The main keto flour used in this recipe. Coconut flour might be used; however, I haven’t tried it. If you try coconut flour, try using 3/4 cup coconut flour. Sunflower seed flour may also be used. It does measure cup for cup with almond flour.
  • Butter – Melted coconut oil can be substituted for the butter if there is a dairy allergy.
  • Eggs – Used to help hold our muffins together and to give these muffins that iconic muffin top.
  • Heavy cream – Coconut cream can be substituted if there is a dairy allergy.

    Fresh or frozen strawberries

    To make keto strawberry muffins, you can use either fresh strawberries or frozen strawberries. If you use frozen berries, thaw the strawberries slightly first. Then finely chop with a knife. If there is a lot of excess moisture, soak it up with a paper towel.

    Muffin tins

    This keto strawberry muffin recipe can be made using a mini muffin tin or a regular muffin pan. With either one, I do recommend using muffin liners so that the batter doesn’t stick to the sides of the pan.

    When filling the batter in the muffin pan, add the batter so it goes up to the top. These muffins don’t rise as much as gluten based flour muffins do, so in order to get that beautiful muffin top, add the batter to the very top!

    Storage information & meal prep tips

    These keto muffins can be stored at room temperature in an air tight container or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

    You can also freeze them too! Simply put in a Ziploc freezer bag, push the excess air out and freezer for up to 2 months.

    When you want to eat, just take out a couple of keto strawberry muffins, throw them in a baggie and take to work or school. By the time you go to have a muffin, they will be defrosted and ready to eat!

    Keto Strawberry Muffins: FAQS

    Are strawberries keto?

    Yes! Strawberries are keto approved. In this recipe, we use 2/3 cup of chopped strawberries. That is about 6.3 net carbs for the whole recipe. So you can have a hit of strawberry flavor and a delicious bite of a couple of strawberries in each muffin without going over your daily carb limit.

    Can I over mix the muffin batter?

    Yes! Overmixing muffin batter can cause your muffins to be tough, bake unevenly or form peaked tops.

    1. I’ve been making the blueberry muffins that use lemon and saw this recipe and decided to try with blueberries. Came out really good. I’ll use this one now, I like it much better and it’s less work. I don’t use paper liners as I find I lose a lot of the muffin. I just wipe the tins with butter.

    2. How would using Lupin flour effect these muffins? Do you think you’d use the same amount?

      1. Usually for every cup of almond flour, you want to add 1/2 cup of lupin flour. I haven’t tried using lupin flour, but if I did, I would start with 1 1/4 cups lupin flour and see how the consistency of the batter is.
