These Keto-Low Carb Blueberry Lemon Muffins bake up soft, fluffy and are the perfect sugar-free breakfast or afternoon snack. They’repaleo friendly as well and are 2 g net carbs each. The best part is how easy they are to make ahead, with all the ingredients mixed in one bowl.

Just like any other muffins, I would make I start by whisking all my dry ingredients together. It’s best to do this in a large clean bowl and then set it aside. Make sure there are no clumps of baking soda or almond flour. The Stevia sweetener also needs to be evenly distributed to give these muffins just the right texture. This recipe uses enough stevia to sub out 1/4 cup sugar. How much you use will depend on the brand and whether you use liquid or powder.

Please follow the lemon blueberry muffins recipe below. Even though it’s sugar-free, the blueberries and lemon peel add a ton of delicious flavor to the muffins while curbing your sugar cravings.

CAN YOU FREEZE KETO BLUEBERRY LEMON MUFFINS?

Yes, the great thing about these gluten-free blueberry lemon muffins is you can make them ahead and freeze them to enjoy throughout the week. Allow the almond flour blueberry muffins to cool completely then put them in an airtight freezer bag and freeze for up to three months.

Thaw them on the counter for 2-3 hours or overnight in the refrigerator, then bring the muffins to room temperature or warm them up in the microwave.

CAN YOU SUBSTITUTE BLUEBERRIES WITH OTHER LOW CARB FRUIT?

Yes! This recipe for keto blueberry muffins would also work well with strawberries, raspberries or blackberries.

  • use silicone muffin liners or parchment paper liners to ensure that the muffins do not stick – I always lightly grease my muffin liners with nonstick cooking spray as well
  • once you add the wet ingredients, stir in slowly and until just combined to avoid a tough and dense muffin
  • when adding your blueberries, gently fold in so they do not bleed or stay intact.
