Keto raspberry muffins have a fluffy almond flour crumb and a crunchy streusel topping. Best of all, they are studded with juicy raspberries. These low carb muffins are ready in 35 minutes and just 3 grams of net carbs each.
I recently posted these keto strawberry muffins, which turned out so well.
Which made me realise that I really also needed a raspberry version on my website. Afer all, raspberries are the perfect keto fruit because they are so low in carbs.
So, I tweaked the recipe a little and came up with these fluffy, fruity low carb raspberry muffins!
They are a great on-the-go snack and make-ahead breakfast. In fact, I always make a double batch of this recipe so I can freeze a few muffins, they are that good.
🌟 Why You'll Love This Recipe
- Easy and quick. Even beginner bakers can master these keto muffins. The batter comes together in a few minutes. You can use fresh or frozen raspberries. And to save on time, you can even leave out the optional streusel topping.
- Family-friendly, fluffy and delicious. My kids adore these muffins, and they don't even follow a keto diet. My daughter often takes them to school in her lunch box. And listen to this comment by my reader Colleen: "This recipe is definitely a 5 PLUS. They rose and browned beautifully, the texture light and the taste was unbelievably good. My daughter and son-in-law unanimously agreed that they were my 'best ever' muffins."
- Gluten-free and keto. It's only 3 grams of net carbs per muffin. And because we are using almond flour and coconut flour, the muffins are naturally gluten-free.
Here's what you need:
- Eggs - Large and room temperature. Fridge cold eggs can stop muffins from rising.
- Butter - Melted, then cooled.
- Yogurt - Greek yogurt or full fat natural
- Almond flour - I use ground almonds, which is the same as regular almond flour in the US. If you have extra-fine almond flour, reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons as extra-fine absorbs more moisture.
- Coconut flour - it's always best to measure this with digital scales!
- Granulated sweetener - I used an erythritol monk fruit sweetener blend that is a 1:1 sugar alternative. Allulose or xylitol will work as well.
- Vanilla extract, baking powder
- Raspberries - I used frozen, but fresh raspberries would work too. Don't use defrosted raspberries, they are too soggy.
This section contains step-by-step instructions and photos that show how to make this recipe. See the recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities
Step 1: Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs until pale, fluffy and doubled in size.
Step 2: Add the wet ingredients - yoghurt, melted and cooled butter and vanilla extract. Mix until well-combined.
Step 3: Stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and sweetener in a second bowl. Then, add the dry ingredients to the wet and blend.
Step 4: Check your muffin batter at this point. If it is too firm, add a splash of almond milk or a little more yoghurt.
Step 5: Carefully fold in the frozen raspberries using a spatula.
Step 6: Fill the muffin batter into a muffin pan lined with paper cups and smooth the tops.
Step 7: Combine all streusel ingredients with a fork. Sprinkle over the muffins and bake until golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Let the muffins cool completely before eating. They are fragile when fresh out of the oven and firm up as they cool down. It's because of the lack of gluten in the nut flour.
Yes, they are. Raspberries have the lowest amount of net carbs amongst all berries. 1 cup (123 grams) of raspberries contain only 6.7 grams of net carbs. On top of that, they are high in fibre, vitamins and antioxidants.
Of course. Reduce the oven time to 15 minutes and then test with a skewer for doneness. The recipe makes 27 mini keto raspberry muffins.
Use coconut oil (or even olive oil) instead of butter and coconut yogurt instead of the dairy yogurt.
No. You can just leave it out.
No almond flour? Use my recipe for coconut flour muffins.

Add a cream cheese filling: Stir together ½ cup of cream cheese, 1-2 tablespoons of powdered sweetener and ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract. Add a dollop on top of the batter and top with the streusel.
Boost the flavor: Add a squeeze of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of zest. Or add 1 teaspoon cinnamon to the streusel topping.
The muffins are fine at room temperature for a couple of days, but I always store mine in the fridge (4-5 days).
They are also great for freezing for up to 3 months.
