Turn up the heat with this awesome keto jalapeno muffins recipe! They’re a nice takeoff of classic muffins, but with a kick.

If spicy muffins aren’t your cup of tea, then this 2-ingredient savory muffin recipe should suit you.

How I Made These Muffins Keto

There are certain foods that flash before your eyes when you’re about to embark upon a keto diet. Once you look at the “naughty” list of food it seems like some of your favorite meals and sides will be gone forever.

I understand, and I felt the same way. Since I happen to really enjoy a good cornbread muffin, spicy or not, I had to figure out how to make it happen for those on a keto diet.

Typically, jalapeno corn muffins contain cornmeal, flour, and sugar – all foods you’re trying to avoid on a keto diet.

In place of the cornmeal and flour, I suggest a mix of almond flour and coconut flour. Why the mix? Almond flour tends to have more moisture than regular all-purpose or wheat flour, so the coconut flour helps ensure you get the right texture.

In place of sugar, you can use just a bit of stevia or erythritol. Many muffins call for milk; I used coconut milk for this recipe.

Health Benefits of Jalapenos

Though I have yet to see these peppers reach superfood status, they do have a lot of perks. They are brimming with vitamin C and potassium and offer lesser amounts of vitamins K, A and E.

There’s also good news if you’re following a keto diet for weight loss. The capsaicin in these fiery peppers has been linked to increased metabolism, which is helpful for maintaining a healthy weight. Not bad for a low-calorie flavor booster!
