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 muffins recipe swapping regular flour, or almond flour, by 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, and 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.

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 any time of the year. All you need to make them is :
A regular commercially prepared medium-sized blueberry muffin usually contains 58g of net carbs and 35g of sugar (data from fdc.usda.gov).
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 muffins to 4.1g and 2.5g of sugar.
Therefore, these lovely coconut flour blueberry muffins have 14 times fewer carbs than regular muffins.
Yes, this recipe can be frozen very well in an airtight container or zip bags. I recommend defrosting the muffins on a rack the day before at room temperature. They will taste just like fresh muffins.
