Delving in the keto diet means you must consume less carbohydrate, moderate protein, and more healthy fats. That is why today’s dish is a highly recommended breakfast or snack for all keto dieters out there.

These meat muffins or meatloaf cupcakes are easy to prepare and won’t consume too much of your time in the kitchen. They are quite tasty and appetizing.

They are best served warm, but still pretty yummy even when they are not as hot. You can take them with you to the gym or on an out-of-town trip.

They are also a good protein rich snack whenever you’re feeling hungry and a great substitute for the regular meatballs.

You can use any type of meat in this recipe. In our case, chicken and beef are our top choices.

They are very nutritious and can be used for tons of other keto-friendly dishes. They are highly nutritious and provide plenty of vitamins and minerals our bodies need.

Beef and chicken can provide long hours of satiety and has excellent flavors to suit your taste buds.

Beef, grass-fed ones in particular, is a nutritional powerhouse. It has almost all the essential nutrients your body needs daily and can provide other health benefits including the omega 3 fatty acids it contains.

As for chicken, it can be a good source of protein, too. You can opt for the breast or thighs. We also included cheddar cheese into the muffins. An ounce of cheddar already contains 14% of your daily protein and phosphorus needs, 6% of your daily vitamin A and zinc needs, and 20% of your daily calcium needs.

On top of that, there are also small concentrations of vitamin B-6, folate, thiamine, niacin, and vitamins D, E and K in cheddar. The positive effects of cheddar in the body includes improving memory and brain functions and aiding in metabolism.

Although cheddar contains fantastic nutrients, also keep in mind to consume this in moderation as an ounce of cheddar also contains 9 grams of fat and 114 calories.

After tasting these unique meat muffins, we’re sure you’ll keep coming back for more. Try to pair them with your favorite low-carb salad. Bon appetit!

Extra step: Did you know that you can also add bacon to this dish? Simply place a slice of bacon around each hole of the muffin pan before adding the meat mixture in. This makes it easier to remove the muffin later, and besides this, who doesn’t love bacon?
