These Keto Coffee Cake Muffins are so tasty that you won't believe they are keto friendly. The swirl of cinnamon, sweetness of Bocha Sweet and hint of vanilla guarantee they'll satisfy your tastebuds and help you stick to your ketogenic diet.
Actually, my theory is, that if you can learn how to cook and bake keto friendly… that you'll be much more likely to stick to the keto diet and achieve your health goals.
When I first started the keto diet, I made recipe after recipe… completely frustrated by the bland and garbage-worthy results.
Now, having grown up baking and creating my own recipes, I became determined to experiment and create delicious keto recipes for my husband, friends and family. These were so well received that this blog & the YouTube Channel “Tara's Keto Kitchen” was born!
Ingredients for Keto Coffee Cake Muffins
High quality ingredients make a huge difference in this recipe and in keto baking in general. Often, inexpensive ingredients contain hidden fillers and are sometimes so shelf stale that the taste falls flat. I encourage you to invest in high quality ingredients… after all… your long-term health is worth an investment today.
So, as requested by so many of you… here are the ingredients I've used for this keto recipe:
- Almond Flour
- Xanthan Gum
- Bocha Sweet (The best sugar substitute on the planet!)
- Baking Powder
- A muffin tin
- Plus, a few things you'll need from your local grocers: heavy cream and two fresh large eggs.
Can I Substitute _______?
Substituting coconut flour for the almond flour will not work in this recipe without a number of other adjustments. I am working on perfecting the coconut flour version of these keto coffee cake muffins.
Make sure you've subscribed to my newsletter so you're alerted each week when a new keto recipe or training is released.
Substituting another alternative sweetener will work in this recipe. Here are a few others I would recommend if you can't get your hands on Bocha Sweet:
- Monk Fruit Sweetener
Keep in mind that people digest alternative sweeteners differently because our microbiome's are unique. For example, I do not tolerate xylitol at all… it's horrible. I can tolerate a small amount of erythritol but not a lot. Stevia has never been a problem for me. I stick to the liquid stevia options because the blends contain erythritol which I know I don't tolerate in high amounts. For this reason, when I need a granular sugar substitute I always use Bocha Sweet and sometimes mix it with liquid stevia.
The point is that, over time, you'll figure out what works for you. Keto desserts are meant to be eaten in moderation so keep that in mind too.

My keto coffee cake muffins are easy to make and so good that my kids roll their eyes back in their heads when they take a bite. I have been playing around with a streusal topping, but I haven't gotten it quite right yet. My husband thinks that's not necessary…. what do you think? Make 'em and let me know! Should I keep working on that?
