Keto Cornbread Muffins

Sharing Is Caring

Every true southerner loves cornbread! And most southerners have a preferred type of cornbread (sweet, dry, crumbly, cakey, etc). I love it slightly sweet and cake-y!



Since corn is obviously NOT part of a ketogenic diet, I’ve been on the search for the perfect low carb replica.

I’ve tried a couple recipes, experimented on my own, and FINALLY nailed one down that will be PERFECT this fall with soups, chilis, and bacon and eggs.

These muffins are hearty enough to withstand a bowl of chilly and soft enough to use as for breakfast sandwich. In other words, they are GOOD!



They’re also VERY easy to make and don’t require any weird ingredients! You can play with this recipe and add in your favorite mix-ins. I’ve seen people add jalapeños, cheese, garlic, ranch mix. These muffins are wildly popular on Instagram and Pinterest too!

You should serve them with a big bowl of my Low Carb Chili and eat your little low carb heart out!
