If you are after the best tasting low carb blueberry muffins, you’ve come to the right place.

There are so many keto muffin recipes out there, but none of them come close to achieving the texture of a traditional flour-laden muffin. My one, though, is the real deal.

I loosely adapted my almond flour blueberry muffin recipe but used more keto-friendly ingredients. These are so tender, moist, and fluffy, they taste standard blueberry muffins!

Why this recipe works

  • 6 ingredients. And they are super simple ones at that.
  • Ready in under 20 minutes. These are the kind of muffins you can make on a whim or when the cravings strike.
  • Easy to customize. Use a mix of berries, add chocolate chips, or add a crumb topping. These are super versatile.
  • Naturally gluten-free. Because they have no grains in them!

Ingredients needed (and substitutions)

If you’ve made any of my keto desserts before, you’ll no doubt have all these baking staples already on hand. Here is what you’ll need:

  • Almond flour- use blanched almond flour, not almond meal. The blanched variety will give the muffins a tender crumb, versus the almond meal, which could be a little more gritty. DO NOT use coconut flour instead because they will dry out the muffins. Make coconut flour muffins instead.
  • Baking soda- Gives the muffins stability and structure. 
  • Salt- Brings out the sweetness of the syrup and blueberries. 
  • Coconut oil OR butter- Refined coconut oil that is in liquid form (unrefined coconut oil will give these muffins a coconut flavor). Unsalted butter will also work.
  • Sugar free syrup- store bought or homemade keto maple syrup. This not only adds sweetness but helps keep the muffins moist.
  • Eggs- Room temperature. 
  • Vanilla extract- Optional, but gives a light vanilla flavor throughout. 
  • Blueberries- Fresh or frozen blueberries work. If you use the frozen variety, don’t bother thawing it first.

How to make keto blueberry muffins

What I love about this recipe is that everything is made in one bowl. Once you’ve prepped the muffins, the oven takes care of everything else!

Step 1- Make the batter. Start by making the batter by mixing the dry ingredients first, then adding the wet ingredients, then stirring through the blueberries. 

Step 2- Fill the muffins. Next, fill the muffin cups by dispersing the batter amongst a 12-count muffin tin lined with muffin or cupcake liners. Reserve a few extra blueberries on top of them.

Step 3- Bake the muffins. Finally, bake the blueberry muffins until they are lightly golden on top and slightly firm to the touch. You can also use the skewer test to see if they are done.

Recipe tips and variations

  • These muffins aren’t overly sweet, relying on the maple syrup and blueberries for sweetness. If you prefer a sweeter muffin, add 1-2 drops of liquid stevia. 
  • Always grease your muffin tin or silicone muffin mold. This just ensures the extra precaution that they avoid sticking to the bottom. 
  • Cooking times will depend on your oven and location. Insert a skewer around the 19-minute mark, then regularly check from there until cooked. Mine takes around 25 minutes. 
  • Use different berries, like strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries. They will still be super low in carbs! 
  • Replace the syrup with other keto liquid sweeteners like keto honey or keto simple syrup

Storage instructions

    I try a lot of gluten free recipes but this one is good enough to make again. As with most things almond flour, the muffins are better after the first day, but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying them right away.

    My absolute favourite sweet muffin. Always turn out perfect. I make a 4” version for guests to share.❤️

    I’ve just started my keto journey, so I’m making adjustments along the way, so I can make a permanent lifestyle change. I tried the recipe and they came out so fluffy and moist. I wished they had been a little sweeter, I ended up adding honey to it since I didn’t have the syrup it called for. I tried to improvise. I’ll definitely make them again. I love the recipe, thank you! Can’t wait to check out your other recipes!! ❤️

    Okay so I admit that I have not made these yet as I just got the email with the recipe in it. That being said, 5 carbs for a full sized blue berry muffin is insane. Next time Im off, I will be trying these muffins!! Btw, they look amazing!!

  5. Can you melt solid coconut oil for this recipe? Or could you use MCT oil? I love your recipes – I have made 2 so far and everyone (even friends and hubby) has loved them. Not specifically Keto but looking for gluten free, vegan and vegetarian healthier recipes. Next on my list is this blueberry one.

    Oh. My. Word. These are one of the best things I’ve ever made since going low carb 4 years ago!!! These might actually be better than the sugar filled version!! I used frozen blueberries and they were so moist!! Thank you!!!!

  7. Hi! Why did you change the blueberry bread recipe when making muffins? Can’t we just make your blueberry bread recipe into muffins? I was just wondering why. Thanks so very much for your recipes.

    These muffins are delicious! I made them using your homemade syrup and I just want to eat them all! I apologize for changing the recipe a little , I added a few tablespoons of almond milk.
