Muffins vs. Cupcakes: What’s the difference?
Many people love muffins because they’re essentially a cupcake that doubles as an “acceptable” breakfast food! Though those believers do have a point, muffins are way different than their cupcake counterparts.
For starters, muffin “bread” is typically a lot heavier than cupcakes. The ingredients used in traditional cupcakes (often sugar, vegetable oil, etc.) are beaten longer and together create a fluffier, lighter texture. Cupcakes are typically much sweeter, too!
Key cinnamon muffin ingredients
From start to finish, this recipe is full of absolutely delicious ingredients. The muffins themselves use ingredients like coconut flour, ground ginger, vanilla extract, and of course, cinnamon! Plus, you can’t forget about the cream cheese frosting!
For this recipe, there’s one ingredient that stands out among the rest and proves itself as MVP: Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener.
Monk fruit sweetener is tasty, net carb-free, and easy to incorporate into recipes (you can add it to recipes that call for sugar at a 1:1 ratio).
Lakanto makes two versions: Classic and Golden. This recipe uses the Classic version, though you can sub in Golden at a 1:1 ratio!
Net carbs in monk fruit sweetener
Both the Classic and Golden varieties of Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener contain 0g of net carbs. On the nutrition label (see photo below), you will see a total carb content of 4g and a sugar alcohol content of 4g per serving.
To calculate net carbs, all you need to do is subtract fiber and sugar alcohol from total carbs; so, in this case, you would take 4g total carbs – 4g sugar alcohol = 0g net carbs.

How to make keto cinnamon roll muffins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin tin cavities with muffin liners. To a mixing bowl, add melted butter, eggs, egg white, and vanilla extract and, on medium-low speed, mix together using an electric mixer.
Add monk fruit sweetener, coconut flour, cinnamon, cream of tartar, baking soda, ginger, and salt.
On medium then high speed, mix again with an electric mixer.
Spoon mixture into muffin liners.
Transfer muffin tin to oven and bake muffins until a toothpick can be poked into the center and come out cleanly about 20-25 minutes. Remove muffin tin from the oven and set aside to allow muffins to cool slightly.
Meanwhile, to a food processor, pulse monk fruit sweetener until powdered. To a small mixing bowl, combine ingredients and mix with a spoon until thoroughly incorporated.
Using a spatula, frost individual muffins.
Serve muffins warm with a sprinkle of cinnamon atop cream cheese frosting.

These muffins taste amazing when garnished with a bit of extra cinnamon! I like to use 1/16 tsp and sprinkle it on top of the cream cheese frosting for added cinnamon flavor.
