Double Chocolate Muffins (Keto, Paleo, Gluten Free)

Double Chocolate Muffins

These Double Chocolate Muffins are what dreams are made of. If you are living Keto or Paleo and want a sweet treat that taste legit, then this recipe is for you. They are super moist and exploding with a fudge texture and flavor.

The muffins are almost similar to a brownie because of the overall texture. They are perfect for a quick grab and go breakfast, a delectable dessert or even the perfect kid snack or lunchbox option. Additionally, if you have leftovers after a week, you can simply freeze to keep for another 3 months or so.

What if I have a nut allergy. Can I use another flour besides almond?

There are for sure other flours you can use if you have a nut allergy. However, some of the flours I am recommending are not Keto compliant. Be sure to check the tag beside the flour to make sure it aligns with your dietary needs.

Tips for making these Double Chocolate Muffins

  • Don’t overcook. This will dry them out.
  • As far as a Keto and Low Sugar sweetener, I always recommend Monk Fruit. It doesn’t have a yucky after taste like most Keto sugar substitutes.
  • Don’t eyeball your measurements. Make sure to use measuring cups and spoons to get accurate measurement.
  • For low sugar dark chocolate chips, I use Lily’s for Keto and Hu for Paleo.

  • I made these today and oh my WORD, so good! I used maple syrup, but was running short, so I mixed maple syrup and honey and they were flipping amazing! It yielded 18 muffins.

  • These muffins are the best healthy recipe I have made in a long time! I used both flours, honey instead of the monk fruit syrup, and coconut oil instead of ghee. They’re delicious even a day later.
