Keto Blueberry Muffins with Fresh Blueberries

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?
This recipe uses mostly almond flour and a small amount of coconut flour. Almond flour is a lovely baking flour and produces a small tight crumb. We love this brand.
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 offer ohis blueberry muffin in my keto home bakery in the Franklin/Nashville area. They have been a great success.

26 grams of coconut flour? Is that correct
Doesn’t seem to be enough to make a difference🤔
It does make a difference. You don’t need a lot of coconut flour in a recipe. Trust me. I own a keto bakery.
My children love these muffins! I am not very good in the kitchen but I followed the recipe and they turned out perfect! Cant wait to try more recipes! Thanks for making Keto kid approved!
Yay. I’m so happy to hear this.
Followed this recipe to the t- most of the blueberries went to the bottom and then made the bottoms soggy… any tips?
Maybe put the batter in first and then stick blueberries in. I don’t have that issue and I make them all the time. My batter is quite thick though.
