What Are Coconut Flour Muffins?

It’s very easy to make coconut flour muffins. It requires only a few steps and ingredients.

To succeed in making moist coconut flour muffins with bakery-style texture, you have to use the exact amount of liquid recommended by the recipe.

For that, make sure you are using large eggs and cups to measure liquids.

How To Make Coconut Flour Muffins With Blueberry

You probably wonder if you can have blueberries on keto. Well, the answer is yes, sparingly, blueberries are amongst the lowest-carb fruits – check out our Keto fruit list to find out more!

They can be used fresh or frozen to make these muffins at any time of the year.


All you need to make these keto coconut flour muffins are:

  • Coconut flour – fresh with no lumps. Learn how to pick low-carb flours.
  • Large eggs – the size of the eggs is very important to making moist coconut flour muffins. Also, make sure they are at room temperature for the best result. Eggs are keto-friendly.
  • Full-fat canned coconut cream or heavy cream if you eat dairy.
  • Coconut oil
  • Vanilla – I am using 1 tablespoon of vanilla. It sounds a lot, but it will mask any coconut flavor, and the muffin will taste like your favorite bakery muffins without the carbs.
  • Blueberries – fresh or frozen. If frozen, you can roll the blueberries into 1 tablespoon of coconut flour so that the blueberries don’t release too much juice into the batter.

Making The Coconut Flour Muffin Batter

Start the muffin batter by combining all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl until all the flour lumps are gone.

Then combine the eggs with the coconut cream, coconut oil, and vanilla in another bowl.

Incorporate the wet ingredient mixture into the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon until a consistent batter forms.

Add the blueberries to the batter and gently incorporate them. Fresh blueberries are particularly fragile, so you have to be gentle.

Baking The Muffins

Line a 12-hole muffin pan with lightly oiled parchment paper and fill them evenly with the keto muffin batter.

Tip: Use A Cookie Scoop

To make muffins of a consistent size, use a mechanical scoop.

Bake the coconut flour muffins for 15 to 35 minutes in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C).

The best way to check if they are ready is to insert a toothpick in the middle of the muffins. If it comes out clean of crumbs, the muffins are ready.

Let the muffins cool down in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack for 15 minutes of cooling.

Storage Instructions

You can store these low-carb coconut flour muffins for one week in the fridge in an airtight container.

This recipe can also be frozen very well in an airtight container or individually in zip-lock bags.

I recommend defrosting the muffins on a rack the day before at room temperature. They will taste just like fresh muffins.

Allergy Swaps

These muffins are naturally:

  • Gluten-Free: they only use gluten-free flour.
  • Dairy-Free: no butter, yogurt, or cheese is used.
  • Nut-Free: despite its name, coconut is not a nut.

But you might still want to replace some of the ingredients.

Can I Substitute The Erythritol?

Erythritol is one of the sugar-free crystal sweeteners. In this recipe, it doesn’t only bring sweetness but also texture.

As a result, it can’t be swapped for a liquid sweetener like maple syrup, or the batter would be wet and sticky.

But it can be swapped for any other similar crystal sweeteners like allulose, tagatose, or coconut sugar if you don’t mind the carbs.

Can I Replace The Egg?

Unfortunately not, this recipe doesn’t really work with commercial egg replacers, flaxseed eggs, or chia eggs.

Can I Swap The Blueberries?

You can replace the blueberries with sugar-free chocolate chips if you prefer.

Can I Substitute The Coconut Oil?

Yes, you can use melted butter instead of coconut oil.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Carbs Are In A Blueberry Muffin?

A regular commercially prepared medium-sized blueberry muffin usually contains 58 grams of net carbs and 35 grams of sugar (data from

The high amount of carbs in industrial blueberry muffins comes from all-purpose flour and all the added sugar.

However, if you bake muffins with coconut flour and sugar-free erythritol, you will create keto blueberry muffins that bring down the net carbs per muffin to 4.1 grams and 2.5 grams of sugar.

Therefore, these lovely coconut flour blueberry muffins have 14 times fewer carbs than regular muffins.

Can You Bake With Coconut Flour?

It’s very easy to bake with coconut flour as long as you are following a good recipe!

What I mean is, don’t be tempted to adapt one of your favorite muffin recipes by swapping regular flour, or almond flour, with a 1:1 ratio of coconut flour!

This won’t work, and it will end up with a crumbly and overly dry muffin. The reason is pretty simple.

Coconut is one of the highest-fiber flour, with 33g of fiber per 100g, which is 5 times more than almond flour or all-purpose flour.

It makes coconut flour highly liquid absorbent, so if you want to bake with coconut flour, you need way more liquid, usually eggs, to achieve a texture similar to a regular recipe.

Do You Need Baking Powder With Coconut Flour?

Yes! In fact, you generally need a little bit more baking powder than if you were baking with regular flour.

Coconut flour also requires much more liquids than wheat flour because it’s much more moisture-absorbent.

    30 Thoughts On Coconut Flour Blueberry Muffins (Healthy
  1. 5 stars
    Thanks for the recipe. It looks so appetizing. Would it be possible to use maple syrup instead of erythritol?

    • Changing a granulated sweetener by a liquid sweetener usually thin out the batter and it can keep the muffins too moist. If you don’t mind sugar maybe try coconut sugar as an healthy swap

  2. I can’t wait to try these I am a professionally trained chef and since being diagnosed type 2 I am now eating a ketogenic diet. Based on your suggestion using heavy cream with a quarter teaspoon of coconut extract instead of coconut milk and substituting blackberries for blueberries and adding a little lemon zest reduce the carb count significantly I believe

    Love your content, I also love to hear your beautiful French accent on Instagram. Keep at it while you have fun

    I’ve been searching for a delicious and easy to make recipe for so long!
    I made them and I LOVE the muffins!
    They are so delicious!

  5. 5 stars
    Made these today and enjoyed them. I did use slightly less sweetener, added a tablespoon of sugar free maple syrup to liquid mix, and used light coconut milk, not full fat. They were very moist and had a nice, well-balanced flavor. I might add shredded coconut next time.

    • I liked these but felt they were missing something…salt maybe? Also they stayed the exact shape of my scoop in the wrapper after cling which is weird. They were pretty tasty though…lemon seems like it would go well with this…or some shredded unsweetened coconut! They were good but I’d add some of my own tweaks next time.

    These are sooooo yummy the family loved them! I made them with orange and blackberries and they were so good. This recipe is definitely a keeper, can’t wait to try them different ways, thanks!!

  7. 5 stars
    Great recipe and tips. I added one more table spoon of coconut oil. I ended up with 12 muffins and 3 small ramekins. My muffins were on the smaller side. Also, I have a gas oven. Mine were almost done at 15 min. I turned down to 350 for 2 more minutes. Perfection!

  8. 5 stars
    These were AMAZING! Followed the recipe to the letter and they were moist and delicious. They reheat nicely too! This recipe is a keeper for sure. Thank you! ☺️

  9. Hello,
    In your video and liquid ingredients, you say to use coconut milk, but in your instructions, you say to use coconut cream. Which one is correct? They are two different things.
    Thank you.

    • Sorry for that missing information, it is 375 F in US or 180C in Europe. Enjoy the muffins, Take care, Carine

  10. 5 stars
    Lovely muffins and easy to make. I did reduce the Swerve by half and they were sweet enough with the berries. Cooking time was 7 mins longer because I used frozen berries. I think next time, increase the vanilla and salt. That would make them a 5/5.

  11. 5 stars
    Great recipe, I tweaked your recipe, used vegetable oil and doubled the amount of coconut milk. Have made lots of differant varieties – chocolate and raspberry, orange and poppyseed, sugar free chocolate and coconut, lime and coconut. My next experiment will be carrot and pecan. Love using your recipe as my base. Being diabetic this has allowed me to have a treat like everyone else. Thank you.

    • I won’t say yes as I did not try I am sorry. Let me know if you give this a go! Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

    Great recipe healthy moist tasty, I added a drizzle of 85% dark chocolate to the top and the whole family enjoyed! Thanks!

    • There is never enough chocolate right ? 🙂 I love the idea of this extra drizzle on top. I am very happy to hear you love those muffins. I hope you will find even more delicious recipes on the blog to try with your family. Thanks for following and testing my recipes ! xoxo Carine.
