Grumpy absolutely loves raspberries. About the way I love blueberries. Since being on the Keto diet, I haven’t had much fruit in the house. As a matter of fact, the only fruit I’ve had in this house lately are raspberries.
Doing my research for baking Raspberry Muffins
Since I had little practice with baking since I started the diet, before making this particular recipe, I did a little bit of research on substituting flours. I knew that would probably be my biggest deterrent!
Types of flours used in keto baking
Two of the most common flours used in Keto baking are almond flour and coconut flour. There are several other keto friendly ingredients that you can bake with, but for my first time, I did not want to be too complicated.
- Almond Flour – this flour has no binding agents. It is mostly fat, so when baking with it, you want to watch how much and what type of fat you may be using with it in your recipe.
- Coconut Flour – when using coconut flour, you will want to have a larger volume of wet ingredients. I found that it “swells” when liquid is added to it and it acts like a thickening agent.
What Sweeteners can you use in Keto Baking?
- Erythritol (I use the Swerve brand)
For the sugar, I opted for granulated Swerve brand (Erythritol). It is the one I felt most comfortable with using for my first recipe, not to mention, it is the one I have worked with the most. Swerve is an approved sweetener for the Keto diet and it has no effect on blood sugar. I have since used Monkfruit
I hope you will enjoy these Raspberry Muffins as my first baking experiment on Keto! If your into a more traditional cinnamon flavored muffin, this recipe for Keto Cinnamon Collagen Muffins is a great choice!

Almond flour has more fat than regular flour, which can cause your recipe to burn quicker. For this reason, I have lowered my oven temperature to 325 for this recipe. I used a silicone muffin pan with paper lines, however, I made 1 muffin without the liner and found that I probably didn't need the liners at all. What I may try differently when making this recipe again is I may raise the heat to 350 if using a silicone liner and reduce the baking time.
