Recipe notes

Yogurt

This recipe calls for Greek Yogurt. It’s ideal for a keto diet because it contains a higher level of protein and a lower amount of lactose (milk sugar) than regular yogurt. It is ideal for baking as it keeps the muffins nice and moist and imparts a nice flavor.

It’s best to use full fat Greek yogurt if you are following the keto diet. You can find out more about the benefits of Greek yogurt and why it is best for a low carb diet in this blog article. 

Low carb sweeteners

Liezel does not specify any particular low carb sweetener for this recipe so just use whatever you usually use for baking.

For the unsweetened dark chocolate chips look for some sweetened with stevia, lacanto
(monk fruit) or xylitol.

I’ve tweaked the recipe ingredients as I ususlly do to include organic produce where possible to make the recipe even healthier. Organic produce contains more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants than regular produce. It won’t contain damaging pesticides either!

If you are following a keto or low carb diet for health reasons which I assume you are then the more nutrients you can get the better.
