  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (or an additional cup almond flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

    I've been Keto for 8 months and found this recipe a couple months ago. I've made it a few times, and most recently I changed it up a little by adding 1/2 a ripe banana, and some banana extract and cinnamon. Came out great! The banana adds about 1g net carbs per muffin but at 3g total per muffin that's less than most Keto muffin recipes. I love the texture of this recipe, the protein powder and combination of coconut and almond flours really work and give the muffin a nice springy texture without being too heavy.

      Awesome, SJ! Thanks for sharing!
