  • tablespoons of butter melted and cooled
  • cup coconut flour
  • 1 oz cream cheese softened
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1⅓ cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • The Best Keto Taco Meat (or your favorite keto taco meat)


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a muffin pan.
  • Combine melted butter (I cool mine by popping the bowl in the fridge for 5 min), eggs, salt, and cream cheese, then whisk together.
  • Add coconut flour, baking powder, and spices to the mixture and stir until combined.
  • Stir in cheese.
  • Spoon into muffin tins.
  • Then, spray your fingers with cooking spray. Pat the batter around the sides of the muffin tins to form a cup.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, then remove from oven. If the dough rises, push it back down with the back of a spoon. 
  • Spoon the taco meat into taco cups.
  • Sprinkle about a tablespoon of cheese on top of the taco meat.
  • Put back in the oven and continue baking for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the taco cups are baked.



The nutritional information provided is for taco cups only since most people prepare taco meat differently.
You can use almond flour instead of coconut flour. The conversion is 1/4 cup coconut flour equals one cup almond flour.
