Delicious Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

If like me you are a fan of cupcakes and want a way to include them into your low carb keto lifestyle safely, then you are in for a great treat. You see this low carb chocolate chip cupcakes are the perfect keto treat.

Low carb cupcakes for breakfast? Well, why not? Don’t get me wrong I love eating eggs and bacon most mornings. I do however, like to change things up from time to time to avoid boredom.

One of the main reasons I am always experimenting in my kitchen is to break up meal routines. I know some people prefer to eat the same thing over and over, but this girl is not about that life.

In case you didn’t know, I have a complete list of Keto Cakes that as a fan of cakes I encourage you to also visit.

Low Carb Keto For Health Reasons

Most of you know that I love to bake but what you may not realize is that most of my baking is for my hubby Randy’s sake. He likes having a little something sweet to have with his coffee during his work week.

I don’t mind obliging since I know it’s been instrumental in keeping him on course. Randy was a diabetic for over 15 years and to see how eating a low carb, keto diet has transformed his health has been something of a miracle.

The benefits we have both seen eating a low carb ketogenic diet motivates us to stay on course.

I like making large enough batches of my low carb treats, so I can freeze half of it for later. Baking and then freezing ensures I have a low carb treat at the ready.

My philosophy is simple, If I am going to make a mess in the kitchen, I am going to make sure it’s worth my effort and time. I can’t emphasis enough how planning your meals on a low carb diet just makes staying on course so much easier.

Creating Healthy Low Carb Treats

These Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cupcakes were inspired by my Low Carb Keto  Cream Cheese Pound Cake. A little tweaking allowed me to make a big batch of cupcakes.

The small addition of Lily’s stevia sweetened, dark chocolate chips was just enough to take this already delicious recipe to another level. I love the bold taste these chocolate chips add.

I thought I would end this post by sharing three of my favorite tips when it comes to low carb baking, for more tips visit my complete baking guide here.


  1. Find a great basic recipe and alter it with a few flavorings. This is what I see people do all the time with my Low Carb Cream Cheese Pound Cake. It keeps things interesting and because it’s a regular, chances are you will have all the ingredients already in your kitchen. So go ahead and add your favorite twist!
  2. When you first start baking with low carb flours make sure you follow the recipe exactly until you know how to work with these substitute ingredients. I know this may sound like I just contradicted tip number one, but there is a difference between adding your own flavorings and swapping main ingredients. Unless you’re have some experience, stay within the guidelines of the recipe.
  3. Don’t skimp on eggs when baking low carb. Perhaps seeing so many eggs in a recipe makes you want to try reducing them. Well, trust me you can’t. Low carb flours are generally dryer and you will need all the moisture and binding that those extra eggs provide. This is especially true when using coconut four.

If you haven’t tried to bake with low carb flours, well what are you waiting for?
