Keto Cupcakes Recipes
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.

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.
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.
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.
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:
- Chocolate Chips
- Cocoa Powder
- Red Food Coloring for Red Velvet Cupcakes
- Lemon Juice and zest
- Vanilla Extract for a Perfect Keto Vanilla Cupcakes
- Chopped Nuts
- White Chocolate Chips
- various extracts to change the flavor
As our recipe is basic without any icing or frosting, I am going to give you some suggestions you can use:
- Peanut Butter Mousse
- Condensed Milk
- Peanut Butter
- Whipped Cream
- Meringue frosting
- Strawberry Jam
- Keto almond butter frosting
I have made those perfect Easy Keto Cupcakes at least 50 times, and it is just about time to put it all in writing.

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.
Second Step: Whisk your Eggs
Add eggs to a container for your hand mixer and whisk them until fluffy.
Third Step: Add Rest of the Ingredients
One by one, add all of the other ingredients.
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.
