Ingredients

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350*F.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, lupin flour, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum and salt. Then set aside.
  • In another larger bowl, add the sour cream, melted butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, heavy cream and monkfruit sweetener. Whisk well to combine.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract and whisk again very well, until small bubbles can be seen at the top of the mixture. 
  • Add the dry ingredients from before to the wet ingredients and then use a spoon to combine. Stir well until a thick dough has formed.
  • Add the blueberries and gently fold them into the dough.
  • Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin liners. Lightly grease each liner with a bit of spray oil or butter to prevent sticking (optional, I find these muffins stick less than other keto muffin recipes).
  • Using a muffin scoop, scoop batter evenly into the 12 cups.
  • Bake the blueberry muffins for 20-22min or just until the tops are lightly golden brown and they've risen nicely. You can check with a toothpick to make sure it comes out clean.
  • Let them cool in the tray for at least 10-15min before attempting to remove them. Serve warm with a side of butter and enjoy your Low Carb Lemon Blueberry Muffins!

Notes

Tips

  • The NET carbs for one muffin is 3.5g
  • When baking these muffins, watch the time. My oven also bakes hotter from the bottom-up, so I place mine on the top rack but if your oven browns things on top quickly, bake the muffins on a lower rack. 
  • Store these blueberry muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days OR freeze in an airtight container layered with wax paper for a future snack (the wax paper prevents freezer burn).
  • SEE ABOVE in the post for instructions on substituting certain ingredients.
