Something I’ve always loved doing with my kids, especially as they’ve gotten older, is make muffins together on the weekends. I used to buy a boxed muffin mix that was easy enough for little hands to help measure and mix. 

Now that we avoid processed foods as much as possible, I strive to create easy homemade recipes that my kids can still help create and that enjoy eating. Getting your kids in the kitchen at an early age is a great skill you can bestow them. Plus, it’s fun!

These keto cinnamon sugar muffins are both easy and fun for you to make alone or with your littles. I mean, what kid doesn’t want to eat something with the word “sugar” in the title?!

Of course, we’re using keto “sugars” in this easy keto muffin recipe but calling it “keto monkfruit cinnamon muffins” just didn’t sound as fun. 😉

Making Your Own Keto Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Whether you’re having a lazy Saturday morning or hosting brunch, these keto cinnamon sugar muffins are a wonderful addition to your table. They’re a cinch to prepare and a great recipe to introduce to your non-keto friends and family.  

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 medium sized mixing bowls
  • Whisk, hand mixer, or stand mixer
  • 1/2 cup measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • Muffin tin (6 cup, 12 cup, or 24 cup) 
  • Cookie scoop or spoon
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Silicone basting brush

 

 

All you’ll have to do is mix all your ingredients in the mixing bowl, evenly divide your batter in the muffin tin, and bake.

If you use cooking spray to grease your muffin tin, you don’t even need to use liners! However, if you prefer a liner, I really like these silicone ones!

After baking, brush your muffins with some melted butter and roll in a cinnamon sugar mixture. If your kids are helping, they’ll LOVE this part!

 

 

Ingredients and Substitutions For This Easy Keto Cinnamon Sugar Muffin Recipe

  • Flaxseed: if you’re new to low carb baking, flaxseed may seem like a weird ingredient. In actuality, flax is very common especially in baked goods. Flaxseed adds moisture and texture to low carb and gluten free baked goods, it can even be used to replace eggs in some recipes (not this one though). I highly encourage you to grab a bag of flaxseed on your next grocery run, you can find it just about everywhere these days. However, if you just can’t wait to make these muffins and don’t have the flaxseed on hand, you can omit it.
  • Sweeteners: you can use whichever brand of zero carb sweetener you prefer. Personally, I use this in all of my recipes and prefer it because there isn’t a cooling effect with every bite.

These turned out crumbly and fell apart:( I substituted almond milk for half and half, and I subbed granulated sweetener for powdered sweetener as I didn't have half and half or powdered sweetener. It does say in the comments that you can make both those substitutions. So I don't know what went wrong. I also baked in a 24 cup mini muffin pan. I know some people mentioned in the comments that this happened to them as well. Anna or anyone, any thoughts as to what may have gone wrong? I would really like to try this recipe again. Thanks for any advice.

Hello- I'm sorry you had an issue with the muffins falling apart. It sounds like the wrong flour was used or perhaps a wet ingredient left out, assuming there were not any substitutions made when baking.
