These Keto Gingerbread Muffins are the perfect holiday treat. A sweet gingerbread batter baked to perfection and topped with a sweet glaze. Only 3 NET carbs per muffin! Paleo, Keto, Dairy Free and Gluten Free. 



Dry Ingredients:

Wet Ingredients:


OPTIONAL: Cinnamon Topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a cupcake pan with 12-14 paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry mix. In a large bowl, whisk together the wet mix. Using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in ¼-cup increments.
  3. Use a handheld or stand mixer and mix on medium to high speed until all and combine all the ingredients are combined. Spoon the batter evenly into the paper liners. Fill about 3/4 of each liner with batter.
  4. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the muffins from the oven and transfer to a rack and allow to cool in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. This stage is optional: Melt 1/4 cup of ghee and use a basting brush to coat the tops of the muffins. Mix together 2 tablespoons Monk Fruit sweetener with cinnamon. Sprinkle over the top of the melted ghee. 
  6.  For the glaze, mix the powdered sweetener, coconut milk and vanilla in a medium bowl. Drizzle over the tops of each muffin. 
  7. If leftovers, store in an airtight container. Will last up to 1 week


  • You can use coconut sugar for the granulated Monk Fruit sweetener if you are not Keto. This will still go under Paleo.
  • Substitute coconut oil for ghee if needed.
