Every year we pick blueberries at Golden Bell Blueberry Farm right next to our subdivision. This is a summer tradition for the last several years. We came home and made a blueberry pie for the boys, and keto blueberry muffins for me.
This a well balanced recipe, made with almond flour, blueberries and sour cream. What I love about these muffins is they make a perfect breakfast cake, high enough in fat to keep you satisfied until lunch.
The crumb is perfect, not dense, not eggy like many keto muffins can be. You can make a batch and freeze and these are healthier for kids too because they are sugar free.
What is alternative flour used for keto blueberry muffins?
Why Do I use xanthan gum in this recipe?
The xanthan gum helps to keep the texture from being too crumbly.
What is the best fat for keto muffins?
I recently changed my recipe to full butter. You can use half butter, half oil or all avocado oil, but I like butter as the fat for muffins, as long as you’re willing to beat that butter a good five minutes before adding eggs.
Can You Use Frozen Blueberries?
You could but the batter will turn blue if you fold in. I suggest spooning in defrosted blueberries, once the batter is in the liners. I still prefer fresh organic blueberries.
What is the Carb Count for the Keto Blueberry Muffins?
There are 2 net carbs per muffin.
I’ve been eating low carb for a few years. I am thrilled that the low-carb desserts that I can make are a part of the Spinach Tiger Big Fat Healthy Lifestyle. I will be offering this blueberry muffin in my keto home bakery in the Franklin area coming soon.
