The Best Coffee Cake Muffins (Low Carb, Keto & Gluten Free)

These Coffee Cake Muffins are a delicious breakfast dessert or afternoon snack. They pair perfectly with, you guessed it, a cup of coffee! But even if tea is more your thing these will tickle your taste buds with sweet cinnamon and buttery crumbs.

You’ll Need:


  • 2 tbsp butter softened
  • 2 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet or my sweetener
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet or my sweetener
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp molasses *** (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a food processor combine all the batter ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Divide between the prepared muffin tin.
  3. Combine topping ingredients in the food processor and pulse until crumbs form. Sprinkle on top of the batter.
  4. Bake 20-25 min until golden. If the crumb topping starts to get too dark cover with foil for the last 5 minutes.


  • *** I get a lot of comments from my low carb readers on the use of molasses. I use it for flavor, not sweetness. One teaspoon of molasses has 5 grams of carbs. This recipe uses 1/2 tsp divided by 12 servings. That is less than .25 grams of carbs from the molasses. If you prefer you can just omit it.

Notes on Sweeteners:

  • I use my own blend of xylitol, erythritol, and stevia in my recipes. This is twice as sweet as sugar. It is comparable to Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet and Truvia.
  • To sub in Swerve use 1.5 to 2 times the amount of sweetener called for.
  • To sub in Pyure or Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet use half the amount of sweetener called for.
  • Substitutions will work in most recipes. They may not work in candies, such as caramel.
