Keto Cranberry Orange Muffins

11 ratings

These muffins hit the right balance of hearty and sweet. While fruit like oranges are typically not eaten on a Keto diet, the small amount of orange zest and orange juice give the muffins a brightness and great flavor without the carbs. This recipe uses 6 tablespoons of Swerve, but if you prefer a less sweet muffin, aim for 5 tablespoons of sweetener. You can also make this recipe into mini muffins or a loaf!

    Great recipe, but you have a half teaspoon of vanilla listed in the ingredients but not in the recipe itself. Just so you know if you want to redo.

      Are these full size muffins or mini muffins?

              Absolutely delicious. I made it two single servings. I didnt have cranberry so I added blueberries instead. I didnt have coconut milk so I used coconut cream. I forgot to add the vanilla but it was still so good. I added a topping made from 1tsp of coconut milk, about 5 grams of homemade strawberry coulis and a tiny tiny bit of sugar free maple syrup (so 0 carbs for that!). The muffin was still 3 carbs net in total. Thanks for sharing this!

                Delicious, the eggs almond butter and vanilla are missing in the instructions but they came out pretty good. I little flat in the middle but taste great.

                  Oh, yeah, the cooking time was significantly shorter, so, be careful!

                      Yummy! I also chopped my cranberries. Instead of juice and zest I added 1tsp orange oil. May cook for less time next time.

                        These muffins were absolutely amazing! Very light. I did however chop the fresh cranberries after measuring them whole.
