All you need is nine ingredients to whip up a batch of this low carb keto chocolate chip muffins recipe. Take a look at what you’ll need.
Eggs - Using eggs gives you the best binder and will provide you with that fantastic texture we all love.
Sour Cream - The best way to give the muffins an incredibly moist crumb, is by using sour cream. It’s impressive how moist it can make the keto muffins.
Almond Milk - I prefer almond milk because I almost always have it on hand. You can use any milk substitute that you like, though. Since I used vanilla almond milk I didn't add vanilla extract but add a little if you are using an unflavored milk.
Almond Flour & Coconut Flour - The combination of the two flours makes low carb muffins taste the most like traditional muffins. I used blanched almond flour but almond meal works well in muffins too. The coconut flour balances the natural oiliness of the almonds.
Sweetener - Use my natural homemade sweetener or whichever sweetener you like. I enjoy making my own because it’s so much sweeter and tastes terrific.
Baking Powder - Using the right amount of baking powder will allow the muffins to rise beautifully.
Chocolate Chips - Sugar-free chocolate chips are perfection in these keto muffins. Use any chocolate chips that you like, and you can’t go wrong.

Keto Chocolate Chip Muffin Variations
We adore these keto diet chocolate chip muffins just the way the recipe is written. However, if you want to add in some extras, then feel free. Here are a few of the ideas we like to have every once in a while.
- Almond Extract - If you love the flavor of almond extract, then add in ½ teaspoon to the batter. It’s a great combination with the other ingredients and gives you a rich flavor.
- Cinnamon - Add just a sprinkle of cinnamon to the batter. We love to do this during the fall when we crave lots of spicy recipes.
- Nuts - Giving the muffins a little crunch, adding nuts is one of my favorite ways to change them up. Walnuts are my favorite, but you could use pecans, almonds, or hazelnuts as well.
- Banana - Craving banana chocolate chip muffins? Add banana extract for all the flavor without the carbs.
- Berries - Raspberries, blueberries, or chopped strawberries are a great addition if you like the combination of fruit and chocolate.
