The Perfect Keto Muffins
Getting these keto muffins ‘just right’ was a bit of a challenge.
I tend to avoid using baking powder because it is difficult to find a grain-free baking powder.
Instead, I use a combination of baking soda and cream of tartar.
I tried these originally with almond flour and they were wet and soggy and didn’t hold well.
When I moved to coconut flour (like my cupcake recipes) I had better luck.
Coconut flour is highly absorbent while almond flour is not.
I don’t recommend substituting any other flour for the coconut flour here.

What Substitutions Will Work?
Keto Sweetener Substitutions
If you haven’t already tried Bocha Sweet, I highly recommend you do.
It’s a superfood alternative sweetener made from a Japanese pumpkin called the Kabocha pumpkin.
Most alternative sweeteners will work in this recipe. You can use Monk Fruit Sweetener, Xylitol or a blend like Swerve.
I have not tested this recipe using liquid stevia because I’m not confident of the results without the bulk of some kind of granulated sugar substitute.
