Cinnamon Flax Breakfast Muffins (Keto)

There is no need for a long-winded intro here, these muffins are not only high in fibre (thank you, ground flax), but they are also super tasty! Funnyman loves them any time of the day so I freeze a batch when I bake them. If he isn’t enjoying them as a sweet breakfast option, he enjoys them as an after-dinner treat: He slices them in half, heats them a little in the microwave, then drizzles some double cream over: just lovely …

For the 'wet' ingredients

For the 'dry mix'


  • Preheat the oven to 160°C (fan oven). This is 180°C for conventional ovens (or 350°F / gas mark 4).
  • Line a muffin tray with 10 tulip paper baking cases. (NOTE: You could use smaller cupcake cases, but you may have more mixture than needed. This is not a bad thing - it just means you could get away with making 11-12 cupcakes instead of 10 muffins. However, the macros are calculated that this recipe makes 10.)
  • Melt the unflavoured coconut oil in a small pan on the stove top over low heat. Set aside to cool a little.
  • Whisk the eggs, sour cream and liquid stevia very well in a bowl.
  • Combine all the remaining 'dry' ingredients in a separate bowl. Once all your prep is done, this is what you should have ready:
  • Use a dry whisk to combine the dry mixture, ensuring the powders have been evenly distributed. Once the melted coconut oil has cooled a little, whisk it into the egg mix.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the bowl of dried mixture.
  • Combine well until it comes together as a wet, pretty 'runny' mixture.
  • Divide the mixture between the 10 muffin paper cases and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes (without opening the oven door), reduce the oven to 140°C / 285°F and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the centre comes out clean. (If you are like me and do not want the tops to darken too much, gently lay a sheet of tin foil over the muffin tray after the first 15 minutes, but do so quickly to avoid too much heat leaving the oven.)
  • Remove the tray from the oven and set each one aside to cool on a cooling rack before tucking in!
