Keto Cream Cheese Muffins AKA Magic Muffins!
These Keto Cream Cheese Muffins first appeared on my blog back in 2015 as part of my Day 2 Egg Fast Menu Plan. But over the years I have gone to them many times and tweaked them into something else.
So it’s time they had a place of their own on my website!
How do you make these Magic Cream Cheese Muffins?
You need these items for the basic formula:
- Cream Cheese
Yes, that’s it! I’m guessing you already have those items in your kitchen!
Those ingredients will make a basic custard like muffin. From there, it’s all up to your imagination and what you want to turn them into!
Just to give you an idea, in this video I make 2 kinds of muffins, one is a Tuna Melt Muffin for Carnivore and the other is a Mediterranean Muffin for Keto.
In the summer I turn these into berry muffins by folding in 1 c blueberries or raspberries and a little sweetener.
You can keep the carbs low by using flavored Keto syrups (like the Natural Skinny Syrups with monkfruit and erythritol). I personally love the Cinnamon Dolce flavor and they make for a nice cheesecake like muffin!
Carnivore Cream Cheese Muffin ideas include:
- Add Cheddar and bacon
- Ham and swiss cheese
- Shredded beef and provolone
- Italian sausage and mozzarella
Are you Dairy Free Keto?
Simply substitute 1/2 cup mayo plus 1 more egg for the cream cheese in the recipe. See? More magic!
I would love to hear what you make with your Cream Cheese Muffins!
