Low Carb Muffins Recipe

I love these low-carb muffins simply because they are not only tasty but also incredibly versatile!

Add some stevia, and you’ve got a sweet muffin. Leave the stevia out and maybe add a little cheddar cheese and you’ve got delicious savory muffins! And what’s more… they are only about 3 carbs per muffin. But if you count net carbs, they are only about 1 carb per muffin!! Pretty good for such a scrumptious little muffin!

In fact, while these are good just the way they are, I’d actually consider this recipe more of a base. Use this to add in whatever you’d like to make any large variety of muffins! Here are some ideas:

Sweet

  • Lemon
  • Berry – (berries are the lowest carb fruit – think blueberry or strawberry)
  • Cinnamon
  • Pure liquid stevia

Savory

  • Cheddar cheese & clean bacon (I use Wellshire Farms Paleo – No Sugar Bacon)
  • Goat cheese and Fresh Rosemary
  • Jalapeño Cheddar
  • Garlic & Herbs
  • Onion

There are TWO recipes below! Two different versions of this recipe depending on how you want to make it. So check them both out!

If your goal is to make this muffin recipe with lower fat and calories, then I recommend enjoying making the following adjustments. Note that while I used a banana for this, unsweetened apple sauce can also be used and is preferred if you want a savory muffin. Use the bananas for a sweet muffin base and the apple sauce for a savory muffin base.

  1. How much stevia would you add to these – I was thinking of just adding stevia and then some lemon. Should I do the juice of 1 lemon, plus maybe some zest?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jamie – I would stick to the zest because juice will just make them gummy. They won’t bake completely with the added liquid. As for stevia, I would guess about a tsp. Maybe bake one by itself to test and if you find that isn’t sweet enough, you can always add more to the rest of the batter.

  2. Carol Oliveira says:

    I made these with a few changes, I doubled the recipe, used 4 whole eggs instead of whites only, I added 1 and 1/2 mashed ripe banana and about 3/4 or 1 cup of blueberries (fresh).. I also added a little more stevia, cinnamon and vanilla as well as 1/2 teaspoon baking powder. The batter was the consistency of cake batter but did the rest as per your instructions, they turned out great! Very tasty and a very nice texture. It made almost 24 muffins.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Carol – So glad it worked out! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. katherine says:

    if i wanted to make theses just banana muffins, how much banana would i add? do you think 1/2 cup banana instead of 1/4?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Katherine – I would say maybe 1/2 a ripe banana. You don’t want to overdo the moisture in these or they may not bake well. If that works, you can always move up with the next batch. However, bananas are definitely not low carb. Just to make you aware if you weren’t already. If you aren’t worried about carbs, I have this recipe too: https://www.thegraciouspantry.com/clean-eating-banana-muffins/

  4. how lemon should i add to make these be lemon muffins?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Stacy – You want to add lemon ZEST. I would say 1 to 2 lemons with maybe 1 tbsp. of lemon juice.

  5. can i sub the almond flour for another type of flow such as whole wheat flour or coconut flour?

  6. can i make this into a loaf instead of individual muffins? how would this change the time/heat?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jessica – You can try it, but I’m not sure how it will bake. You would have to experiment with it. I would bake it for the required time, and then check it every 5 minutes after that.

  7. Not bad! Will make this again. I tried it with jalapeno and cheddar cheese because someone said it was more like a corn muffin. My turned out more like a muffin so next time I will make with blueberries. This is a keeper for me. Thanks.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Anne – My pleasure! I’m so happy you enjoyed them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Where can I find the nutrition info?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Mandy – You would have to import the recipe into a recipe calculator. I highly recommend MyFitnessPal.com. They make it very easy. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. LOL I forgot the applesauce/banana! They still turned out decent! I added some garlic, onion and cheese, aiming for those ridiculously good Cheddar Bay Biscuits. I need some sharper cheddar, but all in all, not bad! (and I won’t have the miserable side effects of wheat!)

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jessica – Yay!!! So happy they worked out! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Just made it. Super easy and yummy! ED
