What type of flour should I use for keto muffins?
For a low carb keto muffin, you should always use blanched almond flour. Do not use almond meal. Almond meal will create a grainy and less fluffy texture for your keto blueberry muffins. By using blanched almond flour in your keto recipe for muffins, you will always have the best texture and no crumbs. Not only that, but unlike all-purpose flour, almond flour is gluten-free and is a simple one-to-one replacement making it an easy keto baking ingredient.
How do I make a keto muffin without almond flour?
There are many other keto friendly flours you can use to make a keto muffin besides almond flour. For example, if you have a nut allergy, you can always use sunflower flour if you need to substitute. Sunflower seed meal will make your muffins nut-free while also staying a gluten-free blueberry muffin that is keto friendly. The only keto flour substitute we don’t recommend is coconut flour, which is too dry for making moist keto blueberry muffins.
How do I make keto lemon muffins?
Adding lemon to a blueberry muffin is a hit! To make a low carb lemon blueberry muffin, simply zest one lemon over the butter before you mix the wet ingredients.
Can I use frozen blueberries in keto muffins?
Yes! While we love using fresh blueberries when we can, frozen blueberries are a great opt in for delicious keto muffins. The best part? You don’t even need to thaw your berries. Frozen berries will actually bake perfectly into the batter versus a thawed berry, which can bleed into the batter. To use frozen blueberries in your muffins, just toss the blueberries in coconut flour to soak up excess moisture, toss into the batter and add 5 minutes to your baking time.
How many calories are in blueberry muffins?
Starbucks™ blueberry muffins are full of traditional sugars and ring in at about 360 calories. In our healthy keto blueberry muffin recipe, we use low carb & gluten-free flour, and our sugar free honey to sweeten. Using keto friendly berries, like blueberries and keto ingredients, our muffins are a healthier option at 212 calories per serving.
How can I prevent blueberries from sinking to the bottom in my blueberry muffins?
This is one of the most common problems in baking blueberry muffins! Sometimes, the blueberries sink to the bottom of the muffin cup when you are making muffins. To avoid that, use fresh blueberries, or roll the frozen blueberries into 1 tablespoon of coconut flour before adding them into the keto muffin batter if you have it. Coconut flour is high in fiber and soaks the moisture around the blueberries, preventing them from sinking in the muffin tin. A coating of flour on your berries is especially important if your batter is thinner. Thicker muffin batters will help cradle and suspend blueberries or any other muffin add-ins.
How to store homemade muffins?
Muffins give off moisture, so the best way to prevent soggy muffins is a paper towel! You can store keto muffins in an airtight container that is lined with paper towel to soak up the extra moisture. These low carb blueberry muffins will last about 4 days at room temperature or you can freeze them for up to 3 months.
Can keto muffins be toasted?
You can absolutely enjoy these keto blueberry muffins toasted! Not only is a warm muffin an ultra tasty breakfast, but it’s easy to make. Simply slice your keto muffin in half, top to bottom while heating a tablespoon of butter in a skillet. Once melted, place your sliced muffin halves cut-side to the pan and leave until golden brown. Serve immediately with a hot cup of coffee and enjoy!
