Today I’m reminding you about all these favorite Low-Carb Muffins and Breakfast Muffins, and these muffins are the ones I make regularly for food prep. And if you’ve discovered the Weekend Food Prep category on my site, you know how I like to cook things on the weekend and eat them all week long. And who doesn’t love having meals ready in the fridge that you can just heat and eat!
And this post is also a shout-out for My Favorite Silicone Baking Cups, because I wouldn’t be making muffins nearly so often if I had to scrub the muffin tins every time!
I think low-carb muffins are especially great for a breakfast idea that’s ready to go! I love having muffins in the fridge to just grab, heat, and eat when I’m running out the door or busy working. I hope these muffin recipes will help you increase your breakfast muffins game; enjoy!
What types of Low-Carb Muffins are included here?
- There are a few tasty Low-Carb Almond Flour Muffins that are also gluten-free.
- There are several options for Low-Carb “Egg Muffins”, a name I came up with in the early days of my blog; these are also gluten-free.
- And there are some Cottage Cheese Muffins, which are pretty low in carbs but not gluten-free. (Cottage Cheese Muffins have the tiniest bit of flour which gives them a nice texture, but you could switch that for Almond Flour (affiliate link), Flaxseed Meal (affiliate link), or even Hemp Seeds (affiliate link) if you wanted a gluten-free and Keto version.
What Silicone Baking Cups Do I Use for the Low-Carb Muffins?
I now have three sizes of baking cups, and it can get confusing because different brands call the sizes by different names. But my smallest size is about 2.75 inches across and holds 1/3 cup, my middle size is about 3.5 inches across and holds 2/3 cup, and my biggest size is about 3.75 inches across but deeper than the others and holds 1 cup. (Links are affiliate links)
These Chambers Bay Baking Company Baker’s Dozen Silicone Baking Cups (shown above) are my current favorite! I love the lighter colors and the fact that they give you 13 muffin cups instead of 12. They don’t get discolored, and when sprayed with non-stick spray they release things perfectly.
The Chambers Bay Silicone Baking Cups come in two sizes. STANDARD SIZE are the smaller size I described above, and I don’t use that small size too often. JUMBO SIZE are the middle size I described above, and this is the muffin cup size I like best. (Just in case anyone is wondering, Chamber’s Bay has no idea I’m writing about their muffin cups and haven’t compensated me to feature them here!)
There’s no need to stress over having a certain size of baking cups though, it’s really a personal preference. Just realize that when you’re using a smaller size the baking time might be a bit shorter and when you’re using a larger size the baking time might be a bit longer. Now, let’s make some low-carb muffins!

These baking cups are wonderful! Easy to use & to clean. I see a whole lot of muffins in my future!
So glad you’re enjoying them; I have used them for years and couldn’t imagine making muffins or egg muffins without them!
Hi. Is it safe to bake with silicone?? Aren’t they a unhealthy material that is passed on into the food? Just curious.. thank you
I consider it to be completely safe. But everyone should make up their own mind about this kind of thing. If you’re concerned you might want to google it and see what you decide.
I'm thinking of using these to replace my rusty old muffin pan. Can I bake with the silicone cups just on a flat sheet pan, or will the muffins flatten and spread?
Yes, you can definitely use the silicone muffin cups on a flat sheet pan.
I don't know if my comment went through.
Question. Using the Jumbo cups (if not bigger) do you have any ideas about "lunch" muffins?
Walter, I didn't see another comment? The ones listed in this post are the only muffin recipes I have, but these could be eaten for lunch.
Hi Gloria, Glad you are enjoying the site. I realize Phase One can be challenging. I'm not going to change the format of the site, but there are some resources for Phase One on the page for South Beach Diet Information and Resources. There is also an index of all the Phase One Recipes and a photo index of all the South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes. Hope that helps!
I bought these and used them once and the food got stuck to them and nothing I did got them clean. I was very disappointed.
I always spray them with non-stick spray just for extra insurance against sticking. I've had 3 or 4 different brands and never had that problem. Sorry you got a bad one.
Deborah, they’re fantastic. You won’t regret buying them.
Med. Kiwi, I do eat my breakfast ones right out of the cup.
Mrs. L. great to hear you’re liking them.
I actually went out and bought some of these last year specifically to make the breakfast muffins on your blog. Made everything so much easier as the paper ones just were not working for me. I use them for everything now.
i love the different colours of the muffin tins – and they could act as your serving plate!
