These keto lemon blueberry muffins are so light and fluffy with a tender crumb, you won’t believe they are low in carbs.
With very simple ingredients and a sweet lemon glaze, these will be sure to satisfy your spring sweet tooth.
These muffins are soft, tender, and have a lovely lemon flavor. And you will love the burst of flavor the blueberries add as well. I like to drizzle these with a sweet lemon glaze because the glaze makes your muffins extra pretty, and brings out the lemon.
Whether you have a leisurely morning stretched out before you… Or just a five minute break from your chaos, something warm and sunny like these muffins will make for the perfect escape.
Mother’s Day Muffins
If you’re trying to win mom’s praise on Mother’s Day, these muffins will surely come in handy. When you get to planning a queen’s breakfast this Sunday, definitely consider adding these scrumptious delights!
You can toss your blueberries in a bit of almond or coconut flour to coat them a bit so they don’t sink to the bottom of your muffin.
Use silicone muffin liners for easy removal, minimal mess, and to get more actual muffin!
Use lemon juice and zest will deliver superior more pronounced lemon flavor. A micro plane makes existing quick work. If you do not have one a sharp cheese grater will work. Either way, when Sistine, make sure to only remove the yellow part of the skin and try not to get any of the white pith, which can give the muffins a bitter taste.
Fresh blueberries taste best, but you truly can make this year round with frozen blueberries – no need to thaw first.
You can use other berries. You can replace the blueberries with an equal amount of fresh or frozen raspberries, or blackberries. I wouldn’t recommend strawberries as they release too much water and can result in a soggy muffin.
Storage & Freezing:
Muffins will keep at room temperature in a sealed container, for up to five days. Store them in the refrigerator if you’d like to keep them longer.
Place muffins in a Ziploc bag and store them in the freezer for up to six months. If you plan on starting the muffins in the freezer do not top them with glaze.
Are Berries Keto?
Most fruits are too high in carbs to include on a ketogenic diet, but berries are an exception. Berries are low in carbs and high in fiber.
In fact raspberries and blackberries contain as much fiber as digestible carbs.
These tiny fruits are loaded with antioxidants that have been credited with reducing inflammation and protecting against disease.
By far my favorite method for zesting lemons, and really all citrus fruit is using a microplane. My favorite is always listed in our Amazon favorites list. Here’s how I do it…
- Hold the lemon in one hand and the microplane in the other.
- Move the lemon back and forth over the grates of the microplane, rotating your fruit as you go. Pay close attention to the placement of your fingers so as not to cut yourself.
- Continue zesting the lemon until the yellow peel is removed, taking care to avoid grating the white pith.
CJ’S FOLLOW-UP TASTE TEST:
These little muffins were easy to make and delicious. They lasted several days and remained moist and flavor the entire time. Our kids enjoyed them as well and we hope that you do as well. The silicone muffin sleeves are awesome, I remember the old days of using a metal muffin pan and things sticking well that is no longer a problem in our house. These muffins are perfectly sized. I mentioned to Sarah that they seemed small and she reminded me that most of the times the muffins we buy now are probably equivalent to at least 2 muffins, but most of us think that is normal (myself included). Anyway, these are the perfect bite. Enjoy!
