Today we have a recipe for easy Keto muffins with dry red wine and MCT powder! It’s a great recipe for the holidays, because holidays are all about delicious foods and we think there’s no better way to treat your family and friends than with these tasty, junk free keto muffins.

Red Red Wine
We can imagine you might be wondering: is that right, red wine in a keto recipe? Well, we can put your mind at rest: it’s okay to use red wine in this recipe. First, red wine contains about 3 to 5 carbs per glass of 150 ml, but for this recipe you only need 100 ml, which is little enough to ensure that you don’t go out of ketosis. Secondly, the alcohol in this recipe evaporates during baking. It is an essential ingredient though, as it ensures the great taste of the muffins and the acidity of the wine helps the dough to rise.

Low in carbs, great in taste
Usually, muffins are quite the calorie bombs with all the sugar, butter and flour used. These keto muffins, however, are really the opposite. One muffin has about 1.5 to 2 grams of carbohydrates, depending on which flour and how much chocolate you use. We advise you to stick to the quantities in the recipe to ensure your muffins remain low in carbs and keto friendly. The fact that this recipe uses ghee instead of butter and erythritol instead of sugar is the secret to why these muffins taste so good and yet are low carb.

Another important keto ingredient in this recipe is the MCT Collagen Powder Chocolat. It’s a wonderful collagen powder that provides your body with important proteins, while it’s free of dairy (and of gluten, for that matter). It comes in different tastes and of course this chocolate version helps create the delicious taste of these muffins!

Tips for more baking fun
The glaze makes these muffins extra tasty. It’s always difficult to estimate how much glaze you need, so the quantities listed are generous. But don’t worry: if you have glazing leftover, turn it into chocolate bars for your children (or for yourself) by putting them in an ice cube mold and letting them harden in the refrigerator.

The nougat drops add a great flavour to the recipe, but they aren’t essential, as the chocolate chips also bring flavour. If you’re a keto-lover and bake more often, you might already know these great keto-friendly flavour drops that come in all kinds of different tastes. If not, you might want to invest in some of these flavour drops, as they’ll help you create better tasting baked goods. It’s best to choose natural flavouring drops, to make sure there’s no junk in it.
