Keto 4-Ingredient Almond Butter Muffins Recipe
Who doesn’t love muffins? This keto 4-ingredient almond butter muffins recipe is bursting with nutty flavor.
What Makes These Muffins Different?
Compared to a non-keto muffin, there is a world of difference. “Regular” muffins of any flavor are comprised of flour and sugar.
A quick search for the carbs in a medium-sized blueberry muffin revealed that there are 61 grams of carbohydrates in such a treat.
I couldn’t believe it, so I poked around a little more, and that figure seems about right.
Obviously, if you were to eat that you would kiss ketosis goodbye. It’s much better to make a keto version that is still enjoyable, but not full of sugar and flour.
Thankfully, there is no shortage of keto muffins out there. Pretty much every flavor you can think of is represented. While that’s great news for your muffin cravings, some of them have a laundry list of ingredients.
They often contain almond flour as a base. There’s nothing wrong with that, and it’s a great flour to have in your keto toolkit.
But, I wondered what a keto muffin might be like without the flour.
A Flourless Keto Muffin
Perhaps the best thing this muffin has going for it is that it’s only four ingredients. I love that because all of that time you spend rummaging around your kitchen for ingredients and putting them away adds up.
This recipe keeps it simple.
The main ingredient is almond butter. I probably don’t need to tell you, but if you’re new to the keto game, always check your labels to find a brand that does not contain sugar.
Make sure you warm your almond butter up a bit before mixing everything together.
Moving on, I also use erythritol for these muffins. Erythritol is a sweetener called a sugar alcohol. It’s sweet but does not raise your blood sugar.
A bit of baking powder is necessary, along with three whisked eggs.
As you can see by the photos, these muffins look a bit different than your average flour-filled muffin. Don’t be bothered by that. The satisfying taste of almond butter shines in these safe-for-keto muffins!
