Low Carb Breakfast Muffins

You guys went bananas for Dessi’s keto fat bread recipe the other week, so she decided to make the most epic low carb breakfast muffins loaded with spinach and feta cheese. These low carb muffins are made with 3 base ingredients, macadamia nuts, eggs, and coconut butter. It is amazing how these 3 ingredients make for a moist and tender low carb breakfast muffin that you can grab on the way to work or school.

We used a non-stick muffin tin and sprayed them to ensure they don’t stick, but you can also make mini muffins are the kiddies will love them even more! The key to these low carb breakfast muffins is to blend the batter very well using a food processor, you can also use a powerful blender. Just make sure to get the batter in the tins and in the oven asap, you don’t want the oil to start to sink to the bottom.

I have two other low carb bread options that you guys need to check out. My almond flour biscuits make the perfect keto sausage Mc’muffin sandwich. I also have a low carb cloud bread recipe that makes the perfect bun for my keto roasted chicken salad.

Keto Breakfast Recipes

This spinach and sausage muffin recipe makes 9 muffins, so you can make ahead and have the perfect keto breakfast ready in the morning to take to school or work. What makes these ket breakfast muffins so low carb is the fact that we did not use any starch of thickeners, only nuts, eggs, and coconut butter. We initially saw this recipe made in the Netflix documentary The Magic Pill, that is why we made the keto fat bread the other week, and since the batter is so versatile, we were able to use if for this moist ans tasty keto breakfast muffins. Stay tuned for keto everything fat bagels coming soon 😉

May people have been asking if they can use coconut oil instead of coconut butter, no, it is a very different product ad they do not have the same texture. Use my Amazon link below to buy the coconut butter, that is the best price you will find. The muffins will bake for about 25 minutes or until well browned and a toothpick comes out clean.

Ingredients

For the muffins:

  • 1 cup macadamia nuts unsalted & roasted if desired
  • ¾ cup coconut butter mixed well
  • 5 good quality eggs
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 cup frozen spinach thawed
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

For the yogurt drink:

  • 9 ounces whole fat Greek style yogurt
  • 9 ounces water
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F and make sure the oven rack is set in the middle of the oven. Add the macadamia nuts to a food processor or a powerful blender and process for about 30 seconds, until almost creamy. While the machine is running, add the eggs one at a time, making sure each one has been incorporated into the batter before adding the next one. Turn the machine off and add the coconut butter and salt, and process until smooth and creamy. While the machine is off, add the baking soda, lemon zest & juice, and process for 10-15 seconds.

  2. Transfer the batter to a large bowl and add the feta cheese. You must squeeze out as much liquid from the thawed spinach as possible, otherwise it will mess up the consistency of the muffins. Once that is done add it to the batter and mix well. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray or rub them with avocado oil or butter. Fill the muffin tins just about all the way up and top with 1 teaspoon grated parmesan and bake in oven for 25 minutes. Muffins are ready when a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean and they are nicely golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing and serving. Enjoy!
  3. Recipe makes 9 muffins. Store muffins in fridge for 3 days or freeze for 2 months. Thaw frozen muffins and warm in a 300 F oven for 3-5 minutes.

  1. Can you substitute another cheese for feta? I’m not fond of feta. Otherwise, it looks yummy. Can’t wait to make these!

    1. absolutely Carol, you can use shredded cheddar, mozzarella, blue cheese(but i am guessing you dont like that one 😉

  2. Hi,
    The ingredients in the recipe say “baking powder,” but the instructions say “baking soda.” Also, a minor thing, the instructions do not tell you when to add the lemon zest.

  3. These look really good. They only thing for me is the spinach. I know everyone likes spinach but it is high in vitamin K and my husband and I can not have it. What else would be good?

    1. hi Nancy, the spinach is not necessary. Add grated carrots, dried cranberries, or grated and dqueezed zucchini!

  4. Something flew by me on your feed yesterday and I couldn’t turn on the sound. I think you were making cookies? You had a plate of cookies that were long and looked like they were chocolate dipped. They look like a recipe I make that is NOT KETO and I would LOVE to make them keto!! Very crunchy with almond flavor. What were they?

    1. good eye Marilyn! Those are keto biscotti with pistachios and citrus zest. Dessi and I were recipe testing ad they came out fantastic! Recipe coming soon 😉

    1. unfort not..bc your are not making macadamia flour, you are basically turning it into a paste…and the other nuts dont have the right texture.

    1. not with the proportions listed, it wont work. You can find other muffins recipes that use almond flour.

  5. I went on a baking frenzy this past Saturday night. Well, technically, it was early Sunday morning since I started around midnight. I made these, the egg bites and Macadamia Nut Bread (I went with Keto in the U.K.’s recipe versus yours because I wanted to try it as close to the original recipe before jazzing it up – but I guess these muffins are short of a jaxx-up of the Macadamia nut bread recipe anyway so I just liked 2 birds with 1 stone, right?).

    Now I have breakfast & dinner for a week! Yes, I eat “breakfast food” for dinner – don’t judge. Lol
    Anyway… KUDOS to Dessi for an awesome recipe. Kudos to Bobby for an awesome Starbucks dupe. Ok, I haven’t tried the original SB egg bites yet so calling it a dupe is presumptuous but oh well. I’m glad I found your YouTube channel!

    1. Wow, talk about a midnight baking storm, right on! You are set up for the week, enjoy all the goodies and thanks for the love!
