Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Lemon and blueberry are my favorite combination of flavors when the weather warms up. There’s honestly nothing better than the tartness and sweetness of these two fruits, and they are a match made in heaven!

These days, I haven’t been able to have much sugar. I have a slight carbohydrate intolerance, and eating too much sugar or carbs will make me congested and sneezy. It’s actually quite annoying, but I’ve been experimenting with low carb and keto recipes and desserts, and I’ve been loving them because they don’t bother me at all!

Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins Recipe

My latest creation in the kitchen is this keto lemon blueberry muffin, and I’m obsessed! It’s so easy, paleo and gluten free, and I can enjoy it with any kind of side effects or sugar crash. And best of all, it takes less than 30 minutes to make, and you’ll have a delicious breakfast or snack that’s great on-the-go for the rest of the week!

Coconut Flour Muffins

These low carb and keto lemon blueberry muffins are made with coconut flour. Every time I use coconut flour in baking recipes, I get messages from my readers concerned about the dryness of baked good because coconut flour is quite absorbent of any kind of liquid it’s mixed with.

But do not worry! These muffins are actually incredibly moist and flavorful, and they won’t have a dense texture either. However, since coconut flour acts very differently compared to other paleo and low carb flours, I would not recommend substituting it with anything else.

And if you or your family member has a nut allergy, these are nut free so perfectly safe for consumption!

Not Keto?

If you aren’t on a keto or low carb diet, or if you have reactions to sugar alcohols, then you can just substitute Swerve in this recipe with coconut sugar (for paleo) or just regular sugar. I know there are some people who get digestive issues or headaches with zero carb sweeteners, so I completely understand.

Hope you enjoy these paleo and keto lemon blueberry muffins. I really enjoyed them with my morning coffee or matcha latte, and they are extra delicious toasted with a slather of ghee or butter!

    I’ve been baking a lot of muffins recently and this lemon blueberry recipe looks so good! Will add it to my list to make!

  2. Katie Beck

    I love that these are keto – I have recently started trying keto sweets to attempt to limit my carb intake and these would be great. Lemon and blueberry is such a classic combo!

  3. Erica Hill

    These look divine! My mother-in-law can’t have eggs. Would Ener-G egg replacer be the best substitute? I thought about using applesauce, but since the recipe calls for 3 eggs, I’m unsure how that would work out. Thanks for any insight you might have đŸ™‚

      I never tried but I can’t say for sure! I think you may be better off googling another lemon blueberry muffin recipe that’s egg free.

    I am not a big fan of artificial sweeteners so I don’t make a lot of desserts, but this recipe will be a regular for me!!! I used monk fruit and cut back on it. I love the melted ghee in these as it makes them so buttery and delicious… keto dream!!! Thanks for the recipe!
