Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Like any baked good, don’t overmix the batter. Simply mix it well enough to combine.
  • Use your favorite sugar substitute in this recipe.
  • Don’t worry if the batter seems a bit wet, coconut flour needs a bit more liquid. They’ll bake up fine.
  • Paper muffin liners work well or use a good nonstick spray to help the muffins release easily.

What to Serve With Keto Cinnamon Roll Muffins

Planning out a breakfast or brunch spread? Since these muffins are nice and sweet, I like to complement them with a few savory dishes!

Want to stick with a muffin theme? Make ahead keto egg bites with spinach and cheese or ham and cheese egg muffins are always crowd-pleasers.

You could also make sweet or savory keto chaffles, then let everyone choose their toppings. Sugar-free syrup, whipped cream, and fresh berries are beautiful with the sweet chaffles while eggs, bacon, or breakfast sausage go perfectly with the savory kind!

Are Keto Coconut Flour Cinnamon Muffins Freezer Friendly?

Yes! Once the drizzle has set, carefully place the keto cinnamon muffins in a freezer bag or freezer-safe airtight container. Lay them flat in the freezer until they fully freeze, then store for up to three months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I only have granulated low-carb sweetener?

No problem! Just throw the granulated sweetener in a blender or food processor and pulse until you have a fine powder. But make sure you let the powder settle for a minute or two before opening the top, or you’ll have a cloud of sweetener floating through your kitchen.

Is coconut flour keto friendly?

Yes! Coconut flour is a fantastic low-carb flour that bakes beautifully. It’s very dense, so it does require more liquid than other flours, but the result is dense, chewy baked goods that everyone will go crazy for.

Can I make dairy-free keto cinnamon muffins?

You bet! Simply replace the heavy whipping cream with canned coconut cream. Because cinnamon is such a warm, strong flavor, you shouldn’t really taste the coconut even with this substitution.
