When it comes to the Keto Diet and Elana's Pantry, it all started with my healthy almond flour recipes. I created this blog in 2006 to share them with you and shortly thereafter wrote the The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. Eliminating wheat flour and other high-carb gluten-free ingredients like rice flour would turn out to be the key to creating my healthy low-carb recipes.
Fast forward to my low-carb life now and these keto-friendly muffins. For this recipe, like so many of my others, almond flour produces the perfect crumb. Sweetened with stevia, my favorite keto sweetener, and flavored with raspberries and lemon zest, this incredible keto muffins recipe is one of our favorites.
I like 'em sliced in half, toasted and smothered in ghee. They're also a fabulous keto snack to go. Back when he worked in an actual office, I loved packing these as a healthy treat for Mr. Pantry.
You can throw my healthy Keto Raspberry Muffins recipe together in under 5 minutes! Are there days that you crave the perfumed aroma of freshly baked muffins?

My favorite keto flour of all time is almond flour. I've been using it for around two decades now. Coconut flour is another fantastic keto flour for your low-carb high-fat (LCHF) diet. These muffins call for almond flour, if you're on a Nut-Free Diet you will want to try my Nut-Free Blueberry Muffins.
So, now that we know that both coconut flour and almond flour are excellent keto flours, let's talk about how to use them in recipes. First, I'm often asked can I use coconut flour in place of almond flour and vice versa. Sadly the answer is no, that won't work unless you do some adapting and testing.
I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to baking, which is a much more precise science than cooking. For more information on coconut flour versus almond flour check out my article on The Best Flours for Low-Carb Baking. And for the best low-carb, keto baking recipes take a look at my Quarantine Low-Carb Baking article which features everything from Keto Orange Cake to Low-Carb Carrot Cake and more.
In addition to choosing the best low-carb flour, finding the right sweetener can be one of the most challenging aspects of the Keto Diet. There are so many options! That's why I've written an article called What's the Best Sweetener for the Keto Diet.
Those of us with leaky gut or autoimmune disorders like Multiple Sclerosis and Celiac Disease find that we do best avoiding corn-based sweeteners like erythritol. Corn can be a very toxic and inflammatory food for people battling inflammation and can be extremely harmful to those suffering from gut dysbiosis, a fancy term for a digestive system that is out of balance.
That's why I primarily use stevia in this recipe and my other Low-Carb Diet recipes. I do have one exception for you, it's an amazing keto recipe that I cannot eat, but that my family absolutely adores. That would be my Keto Brownies.
Finding easy keto snack recipes that work every time can be quite a challenge when you're recipe hunting on the internet. If that's an issue for you, you'll want to try my Keto Bread, or better yet my Keto Blueberry Lemon Bread.
