These low carb muffins are made with finely milled almond flour. I pretty much always recommend when using almond flour to measure and then sift your almond flour.
This will make your keto muffins lighter and fluffier. I recommend you visit our Keto Baking Tips page for more of my tried and true keto baking advice and favorite tips.
Once you’ve got your almond flour measured and sifted, preheat your oven and line your muffin tin. Then you’ll whip up the room temperature cream cheese, butter, and sugar substitute of your choice in a large bowl. Add your eggs in one at a time, making sure you combine well before adding the next.
I prefer using an electric mixer to whip up the wet ingredients until they’re light and fluffy but you can do this by hand if you prefer. Next, you simply add in your dry ingredients and fold in the raspberries.
Wanting to enhance the flavor of the raspberry in this recipe I used lemon extract and lemon zest to brighten the flavor further. Making these a keto raspberry lemon muffin.

If there is one thing I particularly proud of sharing it’s how we combined our Christian faith with the keto diet.
In case you don’t know, Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our entire lives supported by God’s grace.
So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.
Randy had been a diabetic for over 15 years and he was dealing with the consequences of this disease. I was a survivor of the Guillan Barre Syndrome and was fighting fibromyalgia and chronic sciatica.
To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation.
Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives. I love how supportive and encouraging this group of believers is. It’s exciting to see how people are transforming their lives by combining this lifestyle with the Christian faith.
The testimonies coming out of our Fittoservegroup is what motivates us to continue to share what we’ve learned.
We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
