Keto Snickerdoodle Muffins (low-carb, dairy-free + paleo)

The perfect keto treat! Low-carb ketogenic snickerdoodle muffins with crackled tops sprinkled with cinnamon “sugar”.

I’ve never forget the first time I had a snickerdoodle. I was in high school and as soon as I had my first bite, I regretted not knowing about the cookie sooner, almost cheated out of a snickerdoodle-free childhood. Didn’t seem fair that I should only find out about the delicious treat at 15 years old.

Making up for lost time? You bet!

These keto snickerdoodle muffins have all the keto classic ingredients – almond flour, coconut oil, monk fruit or erythritol, and cinnamon, nothing you wouldn’t expect in a keto muffin. Except, I added Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts to the batter!

No one would ever be able to tell that there’s over 2 teaspoons of hemp hearts in each and every single muffin. By adding them, I bumped up the fiber of the total recipe by 11 grams, and the protein by 35 grams.

Unsure of what hemp hearts are? I use them a lot in my cooking, so I should explain if you’re new around here. Hemp hearts are the heart of the hemp seed, without the shell. About the size of a sesame see, they deliver a slightly nutty taste to your recipes. You can incorporate them into recipes like I’ve done in these keto muffins, or sprinkle on yogurt, add to a rocket fuel latte, or make keto fat bombs with them!

OKAY, let’s get to the recipe!

Cinnamon Sugar Topping
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C) and place 12 muffin liners in a 12-count muffin tin.
  2. Place almond flour, erythritol, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt in a large bowl. Mix until combined.
  3. In a separate smaller bowl, whisk eggs, melted coconut oil, milk, and vanilla extract. Then, add the egg mixture to the almond flour mixture and stir until fully combined. Then, fold in the hemp hearts.
  4. Divide the batter between the prepared muffin tins and transfer to the preheated oven. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until the tops are golden.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the cinnamon sugar topping by placing the coconut oil in a small dish and combine the erythritol and ground cinnamon in a small bowl. Once the muffins are done, one muffin at a time, brush the top with coconut oil before placing it overtop of the cinnamon sugar bowl and sprinkling it with the cinnamon sugar. Lightly shake of excess and repeat with remaining muffins. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for up to a month.

  1. These are wonderful! I missed the occasional muffin with my coffee, and now I have these. Delicious and I was full until dinner! Even my non-keto husband enjoyed a few of these throughout the day. I may make these again, but in a mini muffin pan, so I can feel like I am having more. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe.

  2. These little gems are so delicious! Thank you. Love how you Incorporated the hemp hearts in these. I found I had way more batter though so overfilled them. The tops were flat and hanging over the edges. But that in now way affected the taste or texture. Home run!

  3. I used and created the recipe. The nutritional value for carbs came out to 19g with 3g of fiber. I just wanted to let you know .

  4. These were a big hit with the family, thanks! I used granulated xylitol as I ran out of erithyritol for the topping mixture but they were still delicious

  5. These are so good! I didn’t add the topping other than a sprinkle of cinnamon and they still turned out great. Thanks for the recipe.
