KETO CHEDDAR CHEESE MUFFINS

Keto Cheddar Cheese Muffins… because sometimes savoury muffins can be better than sweet. 

These muffins are a nice twist on a basic cheddar biscuit or scone. 

They are fluffy and light in the middle but crispy on the tops. These make a great low carb snack or quick keto breakfast. 

They are also extremely easy to make and take less than 30min total to prepare and bake!

Tools I Used To Make Keto Cheddar Cheese Muffins

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!

Ingredients in Keto Cheddar Cheese Muffins

  • Almond & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. I used the powdered in this recipe because it blends the best.
  • Xanthan gum – This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the muffins a chewier texture.
