Keto Raisin “Bran” Muffins (With Flaxseed Meal)

Keto Raisin Bran Muffins

Jump to Recipe

Our Keto Raisin “Bran” Muffins are made with flaxseed meal, buttermilk and raisins soaked in spiced rum (optional)! These keto muffins are loaded with fiber and are only 4.5g of net carbs per serving. Best served warm with a generous amount of butter!

Keto Flaxseed Muffins 

These keto muffins are made with flaxseed and taste very similar to a traditional bran muffin. Flaxseed is high in fiber and is easy to find at most grocery stores. We like to buy ours from Costco, but you can easily find it online too! These muffins are great for a keto breakfast, sugar-free dessert or snack. 

Are Raisins Keto? 

Raisins are high in carbs. However, these muffins are only 4.5g of net carbs per muffin! This means that you can easily fit these into a keto or low carb diet. We believe in following a low carb diet long-term. To be successful, we don’t believe in limiting or villainizing ingredients. We are lucky to have access to a wide variety of food. Using higher carb ingredients in moderation is completely doable. 

Do I Need to Soak the Raisins? 

Yes! soaking the raisins will make them a nice soft texture. We really like to level up the flavors by soaking the raisins in spiced rum. This is completely optional, soaking the raisins in water will work too.
