How Do You Make Healthy Chocolate Muffins?
The key to healthy muffins is also Almond Flour as opposed to all-purpose flour.
Is Coconut Flour ok for Keto Diet?
Coconut flour is absolutely fine for the keto diet. I rarely use coconut flour in desserts, especially a dessert like this one. Coconut flour is really dry. Do not substitute coconut flour for almond flour in this recipe. You will not get the same results.
Can I Replace All-Purpose Flour with Almond Flour?
You can use almond flour as a substitute for many recipes using all-purpose flour, but it isn’t a 1:1 switch. Almond flour and all-purpose have 1:2 ratio, 3/4 cup all-purpose flour = 1 1/2 cups almond flour.
How Do You Store Keto Chocolate Muffins for Future Use?
I like to store the muffins in tightly sealed Ziploc bags.
Are Keto Chocolate Muffins Freezer Friendly?
Yes, but I prefer the texture of when they are fresh the best.
How Do You Make Moist Chocolate Muffins?
As noted above, do not use coconut flour. Coconut flour will dry out the muffins. Using melted butter is also key in this recipe.
How Do You Keep Keto Chocolate Muffins From Falling Apart?
Check out this post on 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Making Muffins.
- Do not overmix the batter. Use a Silicone Spoon and only beat to combine the ingredients.
- Fill each muffin tin about halfway.
- Remove the muffin cups from the tin immediately upon removing the tin from the oven.
- The longer the muffins stand, the less soft they will become. They will firm more as they stand.

The keto lifestyle can sometimes cause me to get dizzy and have brain fog. It can be really hard to focus. Each night before bed I like to drink bone broth. Kettle and Fire is my favorite brand. They have beef and chicken flavors. I add a little liquid aminos and hot sauce for flavor. You can sip it from a mug or eat it like a miso soup in a bowl.
I add 1 tablespoon of MCT oil to my coffee in the morning. This helps add additional fat to support keto macros and also helps with keto flu.
