It’s almost Fall, y’all!

Like many of you, Fall is my favorite season, especially because of all of the amazing flavors.  Sometimes the perfect Fall flavor can feel just like an oversized sweatshirt and boots on a chilly afternoon. You know what I mean?

I’d definitely think the most popular fall flavor is pumpkin, right? It’s absolutely everywhere, and absolutely delicious in my keto pumpkin cheesecake. You have to try it!

But this recipe is all about another one of my favorite fall flavors…chai!
Chai tea defines Fall for me. I never got into pumpkin spice lattes, but we had dollar chai teas on campus back in college and me and Joe were all about them. 

And it’s easier than you might think to recreate all of those perfect tastes in a completely delicious, low carb muffin.

What ingredients do you need to make keto dirty chai muffins?

The base of the muffins is super simple, and you probably have most of the spices in your pantry already. You’ll need:

  • Almond Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Butter 
  • Eggs
  • Sweetener (I used Lakanto Golden)
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Sour Cream
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Ginger
  • Cardamom
  • Allspice
  • Espresso Powder

Can these be made without the espresso powder?

Definitely! Dirty chai just means chai with espresso. These will still be totally delicious from smell and taste without the espresso powder, I just think it brings the recipe to the next level. Plus, caffeine.

Notes

I do believe this recipe could be made with any sweetener, but I prefer the richness of flavor that comes with Lakanto Golden or Brown Swerve.

Life is too short to give up on Muffins. I cannot live without them. Being on Keto diet, I know almost a dozen of recipes to make muffins. Thanks for this recipe I added it to my recipe book. I will definitely try making it this fall season.
