Enjoy all the warm fall flavors with my super easy Keto Gingerbread Muffin recipe! These moist spiced baked goodies are perfect for a grab-n-go morning or a "treat yourself" kind-of day!
If you've made any of my keto muffin recipes, you know how easy and delicious they are. This keto gingerbread muffin is no exception!
What makes a good gingerbread muffin?
There are things that are distinctively gingerbread like the warming spices cinnamon, ground ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. Molasses is also something that is synonymous with gingerbread but that would add an extra 10 carbs per muffin! So instead of molasses, I opt for a keto friendly brown sugar made by Swerve.
- Almond Flour: This is the flour I use in all of my baked goods. If you are allergic, you can substitute with sunflower seed flour. 1 cup of coconut flour would also work, you just need to add an extra egg.
- Brown Sugar Swerve: This brown sugar copycat is sugar free and packs just like traditional brown sugar! It is my preferred sugar free brown sugar.
- Fat Free Greek Yogurt: This is the acid we need in the muffins to help them rise. It activates the baking soda. You could also use sour cream but please be aware, Greek Yogurt is less carbs and much less calories.
- All the warming spices: This wouldn't be a keto gingerbread muffin without all the yummy warming spices!
To store: These sugar free gingerbread muffins can be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
To freeze: I also like to freeze them and keep them frozen for up to 3 months. Freeze them in a freezer safe container.

8 ounces by weight
This is keto. Why fat free Greek yogurt?
As a member of WestonAPrice.org I have learned never to use anything but full-fat and raw dairy products. If you are interested, you can read their website to see why and/or check out a local chapter meeting which you will find on their site as well under the tab Find Food/Local Chapters. Aside being educational, the chapter meetings are also so much fun.
