This basic Keto Cupcake Recipe is used all the time with variations. I will never make another basic cupcake recipe that is keto because I believe this recipe offers you everything you have ever dreamed of. 

I have made our Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella Frosting, and I am about to publish for you Lemon Meringue Cupcakes with Lemon Curd inside as well as Vanilla Cupcakes with Meringue Icing. 

You can also use them as a base for our Christmas Tree Cupcakes or Keto Santa Hats Cupcakes. 

They could also be decorated with our most awaiting Homemade Sugar-Free Keto Sprinkles or Keto Peanut Butter Mousse

How many carbohydrates are in Keto Cupcakes?

Our recipe for sugar-free cupcakes contains only one gram of total carbohydrate per piece. With one gram of fiber, you come to a whopping zero net carbs in super delicious, moist, soft, and fluffy cupcakes.

Are Keto Cupcakes Gluten-Free?

Taking into consideration all of the ingredients in this cupcake recipe, I can confirm with confidence that those keto cupcakes are entirely Gluten-Free as well as Grain-Free.

How many calories are in a Low Carb cupcake?

Using our basic recipe, one cupcake contains only 120 calories, which still gives you a bit of space for your frosting, icing, or some unique toppings.

Sugar-Free Cupcakes

For the last four or five years, I have used only this recipe every time my daughter asks for a cupcake. All you need to do is add a bit of spice to it to change the taste.

Those cupcakes or sweet muffins are so extremely easy to make and could be used for really anything. I have even made a few cakes with this recipe. 

Sweeteners used for Keto Cupcakes

Keeping those cupcakes sugar-free at all times is the primary goal. Using only the best sweeteners from our whole collection of sugar substitutes is super simple. Pick the one sweetener you like, have at home, or use regularly, and you are good to go. 

Because of diabetes, it is pretty essential to have minimal carbs and maintain delicious diabetic cupcakes. 

Cupcake Flavors

Transforming them is easy.

For Christmas time, for example, you can add either a bit of Cinnamon or nutmeg or cloves or all of it together, and your kitchen would instantly have a lovely Christmas aroma all over. 

A few suggestions of what you can add to the batter to alternate the flavors are:

Cupcake Toppings

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING QUICK AND EASY KETO CUPCAKES

First Step: Prepare your Ingredients

Heat your oven to 200 Celsius or 390 Fahrenheit.

At the same time, prepare all of your ingredients, which are almond flour, eggs, butter, sweeteners, and baking powder.

Almond flour can be replaced with blanched almonds. Butter should be at room temperature for easy whisking.

Fourth Step: Whisk Fully

Whisk thoroughly until all combined, and you have no lumps in the batter.

Fifth Step: Fill and bake

Fill your baking cupcake muffin tin covered with cupcake liners. I always love to use two liners as one usually sticks onto the cupcakes, and the second layer stays for handling and prettiness. 

Bake in the oven for 10 minutes and let it cool.

If you plan to use frosting or icing, make sure the cupcakes are thoroughly cooled. Otherwise, all will melt.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Almond Flour – can be replaced with ground blanched almonds
  • Vanilla extract – optional
  • Substitution for almond flour – sunflower seeds flour
  • Adding Icing – only once the cupcakes are fully cooled. Otherwise, any frosting will melt. 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What to serve with Keto Cupcakes?

Apart from all of the toppings, I have mentioned above, those super easy to make, quick, and delicious keto cupcakes can be paired with

Sugar Free Cupcakes
Basic Keto Cupcakes

How many cupcakes do you get from the recipe?

I have tried to make a recipe for a smaller family or a single person, where you get from our recipe 6 standard size cupcakes. 

You can easily double the recipe or use smaller cupcake liners to get mini cupcakes. 

How do you store Keto Cupcakes?

Those Diabetic Cupcakes are ideally stored in your fridge for 3-4 days. Anything longer, I would suggest freezing.

Can you freeze Sugar-Free Cupcakes?

Without a doubt, you can freeze those keto cupcakes. Place either in a glass container or a ziplock bag. They are perfect for up to 6 months or more.

Once you are ready to enjoy them, I would suggest taking them out of the freezer the night before and letting them thaw naturally in the refrigerator.

Great!! I was going to use chocolate frosting but my husband wanted cream cheese frosting. They were fabulous! I use silicone cupcake liners and baked for 15 minutes.

The recipe states "powdered sugar". Is this regular powdered sugar? I'm also wanting to make a margarita cupcake. Do you have any advice on what to add to your base recipe? Thank you! I can't wait to try these.

Sorry! As I read the recipe it states "powdered sugar substitute". Thanks!

I followed the recipe but my cupcakes turned out basically like scrambled eggs in the shape of cupcakes.....

Dear Christine,

There must have been something, you have done differently. Those cupcakes come out all the time perfectly and extra moist. Maybe the size of the eggs? I wish I can help.
