Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

I will just start by saying these keto muffins kind of taste like carrot cake without the carrot, but even better!

I was gifted some amazing cinnamon spice straight out of Nepal by one of my testers and new friends Lynda.  Ever since I got possession of this heavenly scented spice I have kind of been using it in everything and will hate the day it is all gone.

I love cinnamon on everything, and I remember as a kid loving things like cinnamon toast and tea cake, and I guess the tea cake memory was what I was trying to achieve with this recipe.

How good are these Keto Muffins?

Tester Lynda Watters feedback…

“We had a handyman at our house just as I had finished icing these deliciously moist cupcakes and he said ‘oh wow they smell good ‘. I told him to have one. He said they were good enough to be in a cafe to have with a coffee!!

My daughter also took 6 to her daycare for the staff to try and they loved them too and asked her if her Mum could send in the recipe. These truly are a great cinnamon and walnut cupcake. I struggled to stop at one !!”

Recipe Notes

It should really be noted that this is a very stiff batter and you will need to probably push it down into the patty cases.  Don’t fear the muffins do come out super light, moist and soft and not dense at all.

Another quick tip is to really give your buttercream a good whip so it comes out really fluffy and light.  If it is still chunky and thick add a little more lemon juice or vanilla to give it a really billowy soft delicious buttercream.

I hope you do love this simple recipe.
