These Low Carb Sugar-Free Sparkling Champagne Cupcakes are the perfect finger dessert for any party, but especially on New Year's Eve!
Sparkling Champagne Cupcakes
It's the day after Christmas and I'm sure with all the feasting and indulging, desserts may be the last thing on your mind. But we all know that the Holidays aren't officially over until New Year's! Whatever your plan for New Year's Eve, this recipe is the one you need to make!
Making recipes without sugar, gluten and low carb is always challenging, but it's something I am committed to doing in my own life and for my family.
Keto Vanilla Cupcakes
This recipe can easily be adapted from cupcakes to just a vanilla cake if you prefer. You can leave out the champagne and use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in its place.
I had visions of this recipe in my head for weeks before even Christmas came! There's certainly no shame or guilt in ending the year with these luscious, keto sparkling champagne cupcakes!
Keto Finger Foods
Obviously being that these do in fact have champagne, I envisioned these cupcakes to be more for the adults than the children. I've added some notes below for substitutions if you are making these for kids.
I brought these to my hair salon for all the ladies working and they couldn't believe they were sugar-free, low carb and gluten free! Always awesome when people who don't normally eat sugar-free can't tell the difference!

Keto Swapping and Substitutions
- If you want to make this nonalcoholic, simply switch out the champagne for sparkling cider or even sparkling water will work.
- If you don't have liquid stevia or prefer not to use it and you don't have Swerve, increase your choice of sugar free sweetener to at least a cup.
- You do need the protein powder it helps make the texture more like traditional cupcakes and helps with it being less crumbly. You could sub egg white protein powder.
- The champagne gives these cupcakes a nice, light airy texture, but you really can't taste the champagne in them.
I hope you're ending the year of 2020 with the ones you love and may you have a fantastic year ahead of you for 2021!
Happy New Year!

OMG!!! These are amazing
I have tried so many keto cake recipes since GM starting this journey in August! I was really doubtful that these would be good due to past experiences. OMG, was I wrong! These are the best!!! The only substitution I made was the flavor protein. I used Fruity Pebbles flavor just because 😋. I put the recipe in my Carb Manager app, and each cupcake is only 2g NC! This is now my go to cake recipe.
can I leave out the whey protein as it is too expensive for us to buy along with the other ingredients.
What frosting is on these and what decoration did you use for the gold sprinkles? I want to try these and your reply is appreciated. BTW... your recipes are just awesome and Happy New Year to you and yours?
The frosting is my buttercream frosting and the sprinkles are not keto.
Nut allergy in our home. Can you skip the almond flour?
The recipe need 1.25 cups of almond flour so it can not be skipped no.
Is there another flour that can be used instead of the almond flour.
Is the batter supposed to be pretty super thick? Kind of like peanut butter thick? Followed everything to a tee and not sure about the consistency of the batter
Can I make this in cake form? Have you ever tried it?
I think it would work.
First might I add these look delicious, but I am a bit worried about the sugar content in the champagne, since I am not a champagne drinker would there be a lot of added sugar by adding the champagne to the recipe 😉
It's very minimal, you could sub it with sparkling water if you prefer.
