If you’re looking for a delicious low-carb breakfast recipe with chocolate, these Keto Double Chocolate Muffins are exactly what you need. Moist, delicious, and easy…who knew that a sugar-free breakfast could taste this good?
HOW TO MAKE DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS KETO-FRIENDLY
I love chocolate. Who doesn’t? This is why I’m crazy about these low-carb keto chocolate chip muffins. The good news? Everyone in my family loves them, too. They’re delicious, easy to make, and a fun twist on breakfast or for a low-carb dessert.
Keto breakfast muffins are a fabulous way to switch things up for a more indulgent breakfast! Plus, the smell of chocolate muffins is a fantastic way to wake up!
These keto chocolate muffins are also perfect for an on-the-go breakfast on days when you don’t have time to whip up a big meal. You can make these in under 45 minutes, the night before or make ahead and grab them out of the freezer.
To make these double chocolate muffins keto-friendly, you’ll need to make a few swaps. Instead of using granulated white sugar, swap out a sugar-free substitute such as Besti Monk Fruit with Allulose, Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener, or Swerve Granulated Sweetener.
Another key ingredient for reducing carbs in this recipe is substituting all-purpose flour for Coconut Flour. Lastly, chocolate chips are a big part of this recipe, so you’ll want to make sure they’re sugar-free and keto-friendly like Lily’s Baking Chips. I use sugar-free milk chocolate but dark and semi-sweet chips are available too. Making these simple swaps can significantly reduce the number of carbs in this recipe yet still indulge your cravings.
- Butter – Helps the structure of the muffins as well as richness and moisture.
- Eggs, cream cheese, heavy whipping cream – Together, they add fat and create a fluffier texture.
- Cocoa Powder – Cocoa powder is the base for the chocolate flavor.
- Coconut Flour, Baking Powder, Salt– I love using coconut flour for baking because it gives the chocolate muffins a lovely texture. You can use almond flour (you’ll need 4x as much), but coconut flour is slightly sweeter.
- Besti Monk Fruit & Allulose Monkfruit Classic or Swerve Granulated– Either one of these sweeteners is perfect for keto-friendly recipes to give them some low-carb sweetness!
- Lily’s Chocolate Chips– I swear by Lily’s chocolate chips! They taste just like regular chocolate chips but are keto-friendly and sugar-free!
- Vanilla – Vanilla Extract enhances all the flavors in the recipe.
Steps for Making Keto Chocolate Muffins
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tin with parchment paper muffin liners. Melt the butter and set it aside to cool.
Step 2: Add eggs, cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, Monkfruit Classic, and cocoa to a medium-sized mixing bowl, then beat on high until thoroughly combined. Add the melted and cooled butter to the batter, then mix again.
Step 3: Combine the coconut flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla with the rest of the ingredients, then beat until all the ingredients are mixed.
Step 4: Stir in 1/4 cup of Lily’s Chocolate Chips reserving ¼ cup to sprinkle on top of the muffins.
Step 5: Scoop batter evenly into 12 muffin tins. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup Lily’s Chocolate Chips on top of each muffin. Bake for 23-28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, as baking times may vary due to the differences in ovens.
Enjoy! These muffins are best served warm.
How to Serve Keto Double Chocolate Muffins
While you can enjoy these low-carb double chocolate muffins any way you want, here are my suggestions for the best way to serve and eat them:
- Best served warm– These chocolate muffins are super delicious right out of the oven or reheated to gooey perfection!
- Delicious cut in half with a nice pat of butter on top and a hot cup of bulletproof coffee.
- As a dessert, these keto double chocolate muffins are delicious with whipped topping or even a spoonful of natural peanut butter.
- You can add these to your lunch with some bacon and eggs as a wholesome meal!
How to Store Keto Double Chocolate Muffins
If you and your family don’t consume them all in one sitting, you can save them for later! Store the muffins in the fridge for up to 7 days or in your freezer in a freezer-approved bag or container for up to 6 months.
Once you’re ready to enjoy, thaw, and warm up slightly in the microwave!!
What Is the Texture of These Keto Chocolate Muffins?
These keto chocolate chip muffins are wonderfully moist and dense! Because I used coconut flour, heavy cream, butter, and cream cheese, the density of the muffins is quite soft and chewy. The texture of keto-friendly flours is not the same as white fluffy gluten-filled flour, some may even describe it as a little gritty.
What Sweeteners Can I Use in this Recipe?
There are different keto-friendly and low-carb sweeteners that work interchangeably. I’ve listed a few below.
Can I Substitute Another Ingredient for Cream Cheese?
There are several substitutes for cream cheese if you don’t like the flavor or don’t have it on hand. I have found that sour cream works best.
Is Cocoa Keto-Friendly?
Cocoa is considered keto-friendly due to its low carb content. If you buy unsweetened cocoa, it doesn’t have any added sugar. It only serves to give the double chocolate muffins their indulgent chocolatey flavor.

Could you use Splenda instead of Monkfruit? If so, would the amounts be the same?
You can and the amount used would be the same.
These are on my the favorite list!
Great! So glad you enjoyed them.
Hey Kate, glad you loved it!
Because of mouth disease I cannot stand texture of coconut flour or almond flour ! What can I use trying to do keto as much as possible!
There are some other options, but I have never tried them so not sure of the taste or texture. Also, textures are such a personal things I would hesitate to suggest something else.
