Special Notes:

Perfect recipe if you’re on a Keto diet. Sugar-free, grain-free and super easy to make.  Swerve is made with the sugar alcohol erythritol that most do well with.  However, some individuals get gas, bloating and inflammation from erythritol.  In this case, I would recommend using stevia as your main sweetener.

Feel free to substitute the pecans with any other nuts of choice if you don’t like pecans. You can even roast the pecans (or other nuts of choice) in the oven for 5 mins and this will add a more nutty flavor to your muffins. You can also add in sugar-free lily’s dark chocolate chips if you you’re craving something a little more sweet.

To make more muffins, simply double the amount of ingredients and bake for the same amount of time.

Dr. Jockers Comments

This keto pecan muffins recipe is full of healthy fats and prebiotic fiber to support fat burning and gut health.   These muffins are easy to make and you will love the flavor and texture!

Coconut flour and almond flour are low-carb and full of prebiotic fiber that supports a healthy gut microbiome.  This recipe is loaded with healthy fats from the pasture-raised butter and the pasture-raised eggs which are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, saturated fat and the fat soluble nutrients vitamin A, D, E and K2.

Pecans are rich in healthy fats and antioxidants that protect the body against oxidative stress.  This recipe is sweetened with non-nutritive sweeteners such as stevia, monk fruit and sugar alcohols that do not impact blood sugar and insulin levels.
