Who says you have to give up desserts to stick to a low-carb lifestyle? A lot of the frequent questions I get have to do with how to get started on a healthy lifestyle and how to stick to it. To be honest, a lot of the times my answer is, “Just start.”

You also have to arm yourself with the proper tools. If you are someone with a sweet tooth, especially for chocolate, let me introduce you to this double chocolate chip muffins recipe.

How Do You Make Healthy Chocolate Muffins?

The right sweetener is key here. I recommend monkfruit sweetener. It doesn’t have any artificial ingredients, and is calorie and carb free. It will work well.

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 Them for Future Use?

I like to store the muffins in tightly sealed Ziploc bags.

Freezer Tips

You can freeze these tightly sealed for up to 3-4 months.

How Do You Keep Keto Chocolate Muffins From Falling Apart?

Check out this post on 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Making Muffins

  1. Do not overmix the batter. Only beat enough to combine the ingredients.
  2. Fill each muffin tin about halfway.
  3. Remove the muffin cups from the tin immediately upon removing the tin from the oven.
  4. The longer the muffins stand, the less soft they will become. They will firm more as they stand.

As a Type 2 diabetic who’s decided to lose weight to be healthier, I missed muffins. I don’t have to anymore b/c these are delicious. Thank you🥰!

I'm so happy you enjoyed them.

I’d came across this recipe when looking for another. Made one adjustment, used toll houses dark chocolate chips. They came out rather dry, I’d add applesauce to these next time. But I would make these again to satisfy my cravings.

@staysnatched, thanks I’m not on a strict Keto diet. Just making better choices. Aiming to reduce bad carbs and unrefined sugars. Making again with these adjustments: 1/4 cup monk fruit; 1/2 cup TJs unsweetened applesauce; 6 oz Tollhouse dark chocolate chips. 🤞

Thanks for sharing. If you add applesauce it won't be keto, FYI. They will turn out dry if you overbake them.

How can you make them moist not so dry... they were good, but a little dry.

Use finely blanched almond flour and don’t overbake them. It sounds like you baked them too long or didn’t use quality ingredients. Mine are never dry.

These sweet, rich and very chocolatey muffins are more like cupcakes and would work well with low-carb frosting! (I mean, is a chocolate muffin ever NOT a cupcake? :-)) Warming them for 10 seconds in the microwave and spreading some organic natural PB was a good choice. I’ll make these again!
