Tips for baking keto blueberry muffins:
- The lemon zest is what I think makes these so special, so don’t skip that part. If you need a recommendation on a great zester, I have this Raniaco zester from Amazon, and love it! Orange zest would be fun to use if you’d looking to change up the citrus.
- I recommend using cupcake liners to avoid any sticking issues. Keep in mind the batter is supposed to be pretty thick on these as well.
- I prefer to add the berries last so each muffin gets a few and so they don’t sink down and get soggy at the bottom.
- Granulated monk fruit worked out so great in these. No after-taste and YUMMY. You could also use your preferred granulated keto-approved sweetener of course.
Yum! I love this blueberry and lemon combo! 🍋 🫐
These muffins were such a hit and the citrus with sweet berry work so well together. They’re a keto treat I think you and your family will love, too!
Check out what my sidekick Jenna had to say about these keto blueberry muffins:
“These blueberry muffins have such a fresh taste to them. I love that not one of my kids asked ‘are these keto?’, and just ate them right up! Of course, the use of fresh berries is the best part paired with the lemon zest, yum!
This is such a great keto recipe and we will definitely make them again because they have such a great consistency and are so moist and delicious.”

I have been thinking about making these for that past few days then all of a sudden I open the app and BOOM this scrolls across the top!🤗
PERFECT! 🙌 Hope you love them!
Can I sub coconut sugar. I have bag from another recipe.
You can use a different sweetener if you have one that you prefer, Maribel! That said, coconut sugar is not keto-friendly, therefore it would affect the listed nutritional info.
