These almond flour chocolate chip muffins are based on my popular keto blueberry muffin recipe – because I thought it’s about time we get a chocolate chip version! One bite and you’ll want to have a batch of these low carb keto chocolate chip muffins ready to take on-the-go at all times! Not only are they made with nutritious almond flour, but they also feature my favorite chocolate ever, have that perfect crumb, and each one has just 3.7 grams net carbs.
If you love ChocZero as much as I do, you’ll love some of the other chocolatey recipes I’ve made with this amazing sugar-free chocolate: keto truffles, chocolate peanut butter cheesecake, and keto white chocolate macadamia cookies. (All totally keto!)
Whenever I need chocolate chips for a recipe, these are the only chocolate chips I reach for – they taste great (of utmost importance!), have a pretty clean label, and are keto friendly.

How To Make Keto Chocolate Chip Muffins
These healthy chocolate chip muffins with almond flour come together in just a few simple steps:
- Stir dry ingredients. In a large bowl, mix together almond flour, monk fruit sweetener, baking powder, and sea salt.
- Add wet ingredients. Mix in melted butter, almond milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Fold in ChocZero Sugar-free Dark Chocolate Chips.
- Fill muffin cups. Divide batter evenly among lined muffin cups.
TIP: Make 10 muffins for larger muffin tops, or 12 for lower calories/carbs. Feel free to dot the tops with more chocolate chips, too!
- Bake. They are done when the top is golden and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
- Cool. Let muffins cool enough to handle in the muffin tin, then transfer to a cooling rack, or enjoy warm.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are chocolate chip muffins healthy?
Most chocolate chip muffins are made with butter, flour, sugar, and chocolate chips… more like a dessert than a healthy breakfast!
Can I make substitutions with the flour?
It’s important to use a super fine almond flour, so that your almond flour chocolate chip muffins turn out fluffy and not grainy.
Sorry, coconut flour is not a suitable substitute, but you can try putting the same chocolate chips into my coconut flour muffin recipe instead.
Can I use a different sweetener?
I recommend using monk fruit allulose blend in these muffins for best results and the moistest muffins. It tastes and bakes just like sugar — no grittiness or aftertaste like some sugar substitutes. Check out my sweetener conversion chart for other sweetener conversions if you really prefer to use something else.
Can I make these dairy-free?
You can easily swap out the butter with coconut oil, or even try butter-flavored coconut oil. I haven’t tested the recipe with it, but it lends butter flavor to recipes without dairy.
What kind of chocolate chips should I use?
Can you make them ahead?
Yes! These keto chocolate chip muffins with almond flour are a great make-ahead breakfast, snack, or treat to take on-the-go.
How to store chocolate chip keto muffins:
Store these muffins in an airtight container for 2-3 days, or in the fride for up to a week.
Can you freeze low carb chocolate chip muffins?
Yes, you can freeze these muffins in a freezer bag for 3-6 months. Take them out to thaw for a few hours before eating, or reheat in the microwave.
