I have been keto for about two years now to varying degrees. Sometimes "dirty" keto and very "lazy" keto. I've lost all my baby weight twice with it and a few months back I confirmed what I should have known all along. I have a high sensitivity to gluten and wheat. I had been using the go-to keto baking substitute, almond flour, but my food sensitivity test showed I am moderately sensitive to almonds too! Hopefully, this recipe can help someone else out there looking to be keto, gluten-free, grain-free, and without almond flour! Sunflower seeds make a great alternative to nut flours.
I had been making keto chocolate chip almond flour muffins weekly until I found this out. So, my sweet tooth searched for a new recipe that is keto, gluten-free, and almond flour free! It would be nut-free but it does contain coconut oil. So, if you're not sensitive to coconut and are paleo, this works for you too.
The sunflower seeds make a really nice flour in my opinion. These chocolate chip muffins are really moist and yummy. I can personally get away with eating one after lunch AND dinner and still manage to lose weight. They only have 3.5 net carbs and are so worth it.
