These moist and delicious keto strawberry muffins are a delicious sweet treat that are also gluten free.   A tasty  cheesecake Struesel cake in a muffin form helps with portion control.

These healthy strawberry muffins are made with layers of a soft coconut flour cake batter, chopped strawberries, a smooth vanilla cheesecake and then topped with a cinnamon crumble.   A great deal of flavour and texture in a tasty muffin you can enjoy for breakfast or a sweet treat.

SUGAR-FREE, GLUTEN FREE, KETO MUFFINS

Although these keto strawberry muffins are utterly delicious cold, I must confess that I ate one when they were still warm as I couldn’t wait.  They are great warm but will be very soft.  Try one warm, then try another later when cold and judge for yourself!  If you prefer them warm you can quickly zap the muffin in the microwave later.  The Chief Taster preferred his cold, so our house was divided.   When your domestic arguments are about a hot versus a cold muffin, it’s not a bad life!

STRAWBERRIES ON KETO

The strawberries give this muffin the perfect taste of summer for a sweet breakfast muffin.  Strawberries are allowed on a low carb keto diet in moderation. As well as having a natural sweetness they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

LOW CARB MUFFINS WITH COCONUT FLOUR

The coconut flour bakes to give you a light and fluffy gluten free muffin with my trick of whisking the egg whites separately. It’s my favourite way of baking with coconut flour as it gives a light result every time.

HOW TO STORE KETO STRAWBERRY MUFFINS

The best way to store these muffins is in an airtight container in the fridge. Since they have a cheesecake layer they need to be kept in the fridge. Although I think they are best the day they are made, they will keep in the fridge for a couple of days. Give them a new lease of life it too dry after a couple of days by heating them in the microwave.
