Keto Snickerdoodle Muffins

These low carb keto cinnamon muffins are the most tender and fluffy muffins I’ve eaten. They taste like snickerdoodle cookies in muffin form.

One of the most popular keto recipes on my blog are my low carb keto biscuits. The biscuits are baked in a muffin pan and are so fluffy and tender. Since sharing that recipe, I’ve been asked several times whether I have a sweet version.

So I’ve been experimenting and testing to create a sweet muffin recipe. It took a few months, but I finally created the muffins I’ve been looking for.

These muffins are so incredibly fluffy, moist, and tender. Like my Low Carb Snickerdoodle Mug Cake, the batter is flavored with cinnamon. It’s then finished with more cinnamon and erythritol granular to give it that snickerdoodle finish.

Baking with Erythritol granular

  • I used So Nourished Erythritol Sweetener Granular* in this recipe. It looks just like granular sugar and works the same way too. I love that you don’t really have that cooling effect that you get with a lot of sugar alternatives.
  • You can most likely also use other granular sugar substitutes like Swerve granular.

Muffin batter:

  • 2 1/2 cups superfine almond flour
  • 1/2 cup erythritol sweetener granular
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/3 cup milk or almond milk
  • 1/2 cup full fat sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • 1 tbsp erythritol sweetener granular
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. I recommend using parchment muffin liners because the muffins will easily come off and won't stick to the liners.
  • In a large bowl, add almond flour, erythritol, baking powder, cinnamon. Whisk until evenly combined.
  • In a separate large bowl, add eggs, butter, milk, sour cream and vanilla. Make sure your butter is warm and liquid but not piping hot because if it is, it can potentially cook the eggs. Whisk until batter is smooth and even.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients bowl. Whisk until batter is evenly combined.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, scoop batter into prepared muffin pan, filling each muffin mold about 3/4 full.
  • In a small bowl, add topping ingredients. Stir to evenly mix.
  • Sprinkle topping over surface of muffins.
  • Bake muffins for about 22-25 minutes until tops of muffins are dark golden brown and batter is no longer wet.
  • Allow muffins to cool fully before eating.


  • I used So Nourished Erythritol Sweetener Granular.*
  • I used these parchment cupcake liners.*
  • If you decide to omit the topping you may need to add a little more erythritol to the batter because the muffin sweetness does rely partially on the topping which melts in during baking.
  • Do not substitute almond flour with coconut flour. Almond flour and coconut flour are not interchangeable. While you may be able to make a version of this with just coconut flour, other ingredients would need to be tweaked as well.

  1. Can full fat Greek yogurt be used in place of the sour cream? 

  2. Delicious! I eat one for breakfast every morning!

  3. Please guide me , My digestive tract does not agree with any sugar alcohols , erythritol, xylitol etc would I be able to substitute with honey? I would love to try these and many more to make for my family each day….



  4. Made these and made the Keto Zucchini bread as muffins. Thank you for finally letting baked goods taste as they should. They are a perfect way to start my day!. For these, I didn’t change a thing. When making the bread as muffins, I reduced the bake time to 25min. Perfection!. I can’t wait to try more of your creations.

  5. These didn’t work for me at all… I’m super bummed because I was making them for my husband’s hiking trip with a buddy whose wife is a professional baker. They overflowed and then flattened and burned. They never domed at all while in the oven either. I wonder if subbing baking soda and filling the cups about half way would work better but I sure can’t send these. I will say the house smells absolutely amazing though. 🙂

  6. Fantastic recipe!  I substituted monk fruit and it was perfect!  Doesn’t have a funky texture and tastes amazing! 
    Thank you! 

  7. Very good!!!! Love the texture and flavor.

  8. Made the regular biscuit yesterday and loved them!  Decided to try this recipe as well.  Not a fan of cinnamon so left that out and added in 1/3 cup Lilly chocolate chips.

    It made 18 good sized muffins (it would have overflowed my pan big time with 12 as they did rise a bit in the over)

    We’re nice and fluffy. Not overly sweet.
