Keto Chocolate Chip Muffins

by hungryelephant

These keto chocolate chip muffins are OOEY and GOOEY. I can’t believe they taste so good. I made these with coconut flour and the best part is (for those who don’t like coconut) that you don’t even taste it. It’s alll chocolate, baby!

keto chocolate chip muffins

These are the first chocolate chip muffins I made and I can’t believe how yummy they were. I will try perfecting it with almond flour shortly but for now, these will curb the cravings. 

*UPDATE – I have made these banana chocolate chip muffins with almond flour!

When you are looking for sugar free chocolate chips, look for ones that don’t use maltitol. Ive found when using chocolate with maltitol, it causes incredible stomach discomfort and even dizzyness, sweating and pain. Usually I can tolerate roughly 3 small pieces of chocolate with maltitol before I end up feeling awful. So make sure it is sweetened with stevia, xylitol (unsafe for pets!!!), or another sweetener that doesn’t cause upset. Lily’s or Krisda are two great brands.

Hope you guys enjoy these muffins! Make sure to also try my blueberry muffins and double chocolate coffee muffins!

Keto Chocolate Chip Muffins

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Active Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

The best keto chocolate chip muffins! They are my favourite and make them regularly. The best part is that it is gluten, sugar, grain and NUT free.


  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder (use tsp! my video I wrote tbsp and I misprinted)
  • 1/4 cup sugar substitute (I used powdered Swerve)
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips


  1. Mix your dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Add in your coconut oil and eggs and mix thoroughly.
  3. Slowly pour in your cream as you stir the mix.
  4. Spoon into 6 lined muffin tins.
  5. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.. or until you and stick a toothpick into the middle of a muffin and it comes out clean. If it comes out with batter on it - it still needs some cookin!

I doubled the recipe, and OMG these are DELICIOUS! I have made many low carb muffin recipes and these are the best ones I have ever made and they are the easiest!!! Thank you for this recipe!!!

brianne March 7, 2019 - 7:51 pm

BIG WASTE of my ingredients and time. EPIC FAIL.

Bonnie February 25, 2018 - 3:44 pm

Is the measurement for baking powder really supposed to be 1 1/2 tbsp (tablespoons) or should it be 1 1/2 tsp (teaspoons)?

hungryelephant February 25, 2018 - 3:46 pm

Yikes! Teaspoons! Thanks for catching that!

Laura B April 23, 2018 - 6:17 pm

Can I use canola oil instead of coconut oil?

hungryelephant April 23, 2018 - 6:29 pm

I would think so.

Simone March 7, 2018 - 4:06 pm

I made the muffins yesterday. We really liked the texture of the dough but I had a problem: my dough was very runny- I could easily pour it into the muffin form. Because of that, the chocolate sank on the ground. Do you have any idea what might be the reason for that?

hungryelephant March 7, 2018 - 4:26 pm

Hi Simone! You followed it exactly I assume?

You can always try adding a bit more coconut flour. Try 2 tbsp and see if it thickens up a bit more!

Simone March 9, 2018 - 8:31 am

Thanks, I’ll give it another try. The taste was delicious.

Linda April 6, 2018 - 10:14 am

These are soooooo good and moist! I’m assuming the chocolate chips can be substituted for walnuts or pecan with some Maple flavouring? Or any dried fruit.

hungryelephant April 6, 2018 - 10:16 am

Yes of course! Some people have had success adding blueberries! but some nuts and maple flavouring (or even sugar free maple syrup) sounds AMAZING.

Jo-Lynn May 31, 2018 - 7:52 pm

Are the muffins regular size muffins or large muffins. I know there are mini, regular and large. Just checking to make sure to use the correct size.

Thank you.

hungryelephant May 31, 2018 - 2:59 pm

Hey! they are regular sized muffins 🙂

Kim June 8, 2018 - 1:37 pm

These have become a stable for my family! Such an easy recipe with delicious results! I typically use mini muffins tons to make it easy for my little guy:) they cook for about 30 minutes! Yummy!!

Tami June 10, 2018 - 9:34 pm

First time making them and they are In the oven now?? I couldn’t resist after reading all the comments ?

Christy Scott June 13, 2018 - 2:32 pm

These came out of the oven a few minutes ago, and I’m so glad I made them! For me, they made eight good size muffins. I made them just as printed, except for 1/4 teaspoon salt. They will become a new staple for us. Thank you!!

Kim June 14, 2018 - 12:02 am

Thank you for the recipe!! LOVED these!!! And I’m not impressed with a lot of keto baking recipes!! Mine only took 25 minutes to bake.
Would this work using butter instead of coconut oil?

hungryelephant June 13, 2018 - 7:05 pm

Yes, I don’t see why not! Best to probably melt it, but I think that should be fine!

Kim June 23, 2018 - 11:29 am

So I tried these with melted butter too. Despite LOVING butter, I think it changed the flavor a bit and I did not like it as much as with coconut oil. I’ll definitely be sticking to your original recipe! This has become a staple in my house – I make a batch every week and use one for my breakfast. By far, my favorite keto recipe. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!

Is 4.7 the net carbs? These look amazing!

hungryelephant July 1, 2018 - 6:32 pm

Hi Mel, no those are total carbs. Each muffin is 3 net carbs 🙂 hope that helps!

Hayley July 17, 2018 - 11:07 am

I was wondering the same thing about the cream.

BB January 8, 2019 - 11:38 am

Hi There,
Could you kindly advise how you calculated a total of 3 carbs? I calculated 11. i used xylitol as the sugar sub so that might hold extra carbs but i didn’t expect such a huge discrepancy!

Chrissy July 16, 2018 - 7:02 pm

What is the cream you use? They look delicious!

hungryelephant July 17, 2018 - 11:08 am

I used heavy cream!

Hayley July 17, 2018 - 10:43 am

What do you mean when you say “cream”?

hungryelephant July 17, 2018 - 11:09 am

Heavy/whipping cream!

Kristan July 27, 2018 - 12:27 am

Omg, these are the best! I generally use almond flour for most of my keto baking but need to start baking more with coconut flour…plus way more economical because you don’t need much! So happy I tried these and going to attempt blueberries instead of choc chips to see what happens ?

Kirsten July 29, 2018 - 11:13 am

What’s the best way to store them until you eat the rest? Thanks! They are delicious.

hungryelephant July 29, 2018 - 11:16 am

I think best to wrap them in cling wrap or seran wrap to keep the air out!

Hayley August 11, 2018 - 9:07 am

Are these supposed to be refrigerated or can they be left out for a few days in a Tupperware?

hungryelephant August 11, 2018 - 9:15 am

They can be left in Tupperware for sure. That’s what I did

Kerila September 28, 2018 - 12:24 pm

Hello how many net carbs in each muffin please?

hungryelephant September 28, 2018 - 6:06 pm

3 per muffin!

Sam September 29, 2018 - 8:25 am

Has anyone successfully made these with coconut milk? We have a dairy allergy.

Roxana January 5, 2019 - 10:10 pm

You can always substitute liquids in equal amount for dairy allergies. This is true in any recipe. The taste might change, but the texture should not.

Kathryn January 6, 2019 - 3:25 am

Can you please print the nutritional information with your recipes? That would be so helpful! Thank you :-).

Sarah L January 14, 2019 - 6:35 pm

SO GOOD!!! I was scrolling through Pintrest recipes and saw these and immediately went into the kitchen to make them. My husbands first response was “these are the best keto muffins you’ve ever made.” I can’t agree more. So simple and easy and so delicious. I used less SF chocolate chips and added some chopped bakers chocolate for some shards of melted chocolate… yum!

Stacy February 23, 2019 - 3:11 am

OH MY GOODNESS!! I have tried many keto muffin recipes, but these are BY FAR the best out there. My non-keto children absolutely loved them (back off kids, these are mine ?). Thank you so much, these are a new staple in my house.

Danielle February 27, 2019 - 10:11 pm

Hi i was calculating carbs and I came up with at least 11 carbs, 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips are 9 carbs alone according to my calculations? I use Lily brand

hungryelephant February 28, 2019 - 10:15 am

Hey! so for the chocolate chips, I dont count the polyols/sugar alcohols. So if you’re using MFP and trying to count carbs, sugar free chocolate will always have a high carb count because it doesn’t take off the sugar alcohols. Our body doesn’t absorb it so we don’t count it. Hope that helps!

Danielle February 28, 2019 - 10:18 am

Yes it does thank you!

Kelly March 28, 2019 - 8:33 am

I’m not a Bak by any means, but I’d like to try these muffins. Do you fold the chocolate chips in after the cream goes in? And when you day mix, are you mixing with a spoon or with a mixer?

hungryelephant March 28, 2019 - 7:51 pm

fold in the chocolate chips last, after youve mixed everything else together. You can use a mixer but I used a spoon. Hope that helps!

Ria Kellam May 14, 2019 - 8:55 am

Do you melt the coconut oil before adding?

hungryelephant May 14, 2019 - 9:01 am

Nope! Sugar free chocolate chips added whole!

monica sevigny June 6, 2019 - 11:36 am

Can I sub avocado, oil or butter, I don’t like the taste of coconut oil

hungryelephant June 6, 2019 - 11:40 am

Yup! Should be fine with any of those!
