If I eat one more yogurt parfait (greek yogurt, strawberries, granola) for breakfast I am going to scream. Okay, maybe not but I’m in need of a new make-ahead breakfast, and I found one: These delicious low carb muffins from Keila Keto. (Again, I do not recommend diabetics do the Keto diet, but Keto recipes can be included as part of a healthy diet, especially due to the low sugar count.)
Because of the calorie count (scroll down), I can have two low carb muffins with three slices of Canadian bacon for a great on-the-go breakfast under 300 calories! That’s what I’m talking about, baby!
Ingredients for Low Carb Muffins:
- 1 1/4 Cup Almond Flour
- 2 Tbsp Coconut Flour
- 2 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Tsp Xanthan Gum
- 1/4 Tsp Salt
- 4 oz Cream Cheese
- 3 Large Eggs (Room Temperature)
- 1/4 Cup Sweetener of Choice
- 4 Tbsp Butter (Browned)
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- Optional add-ins: blueberries, raspberries, cinnamon, nuts
Nutritional Information (1 muffin = 1 serving)

Tip #1: Don’t forget to add in the add-in calorie count if you are following a strict calorie restriction diet. For example: One cup of blueberries has 85 calories in it. Divided by twelve, this add-in would add 7 calories to each muffin.
Tip #2: How the heck do you brown butter? Here’s the best video I found to demonstrate this technique.
So, yes, browning butter takes a few minutes, but it does make a difference in this recipe. Check out America’s Test Kitchen for more technique videos.
Lord, I am hungry. Happy eating, my friends!
