Ingredients Keto Cranberry Muffins

A great thing about these moist and rich almond flour cranberry muffins is that they need only a few naturally low-carb ingredients that are easy to find. Here is everything you will need:

  • Almond Flour – Use super-fine almond flour to have a fluffy texture with a less grainy flavor.
  • Coconut flour – I love using a combination of grain-free flour in keto baking to get the best texture.
  • Eggs – use large room-temperature eggs to avoid that eggy taste.
  • Sweetener – feel free to use any of your favorite sweeteners such as erythritol, monk fruit, or xanthan gum.
  • Heavy cream – for a touch of creaminess.
  • Baking Powder – helps the muffins to become fluffy and rise beautifully.
  • Butter – unsalted butter.
  • Vanilla Extract – Use a high-quality vanilla extract to make the muffins taste incredibly delicious.
  • Cinnamon – this ingredient is optional, but it pairs perfectly with cranberries.
  • Cranberries – I choose to use fresh cranberries while they are in season and frozen for the rest of the year.
  • Salt – is used to enhance all the flavor.

How To Make Keto Cranberry Muffins

These keto cranberry muffins are so easy to make in just a few easy steps:

  1. Preheat the oven: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F/ 180°C and line a 12-cup muffin tin with parchment paper.
  2. Make the batter: Combine almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, and baking powder.
  3. In a separate bowl, add the eggs, orange zest (if using), sweetener, melted butter, heavy cream, and melted butter. Mix using an electric mixer for about 60 seconds or until frothy.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients until well incorporated. Fold in the cranberries.
  • Divide the batter between the prepared muffin tins and sprinkle with granulated sweetener.
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes in the preheated oven.

Tips For Making The Best Keto Cranberry Muffins

  • Make sure that you don’t overmix the batter.
  • Avoid overfilling your muffin tins since they may overflow slightly while baking.
  • Let the muffins cool completely before serving.
  • For some extra crunch, add some chopped pecans or almonds into the batter.
  • Use your favorite berries – fresh or frozen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Use Dried Cranberries For This Recipe?

Although cranberries are good for a keto diet, dried cranberries are full of sugar and lose most of their vitamins during the drying process. So, avoid dried cranberries on a keto diet.

Can I Make These Muffins Only with Coconut Flour?

No, because coconut flour absorbs tons of liquid, which might result in super dry keto muffins.
