Low-Carb Muffins and Breakfast Muffins
This round-up features Low-Carb Muffins and Breakfast Muffins, and every muffin recipe here is great for a grab-and-go breakfast. And this post also has a shout-out for the silicone baking cups I always use when I make this type of savory low-carb muffin!
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.

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!
