The Best Ingredients For Low-Carb Blueberry Muffins
All you need to make blueberry keto muffins with almond flour are:
- Almond Flour – Make sure you use ultra-fine almond flour with a thin texture and golden color. Almond meal is coarse, dark in color, and gives a gritty texture to keto muffin recipes, so I don’t recommend this option. Learn how to pick the best keto flours.
- Erythritol – any type of crystal keto-friendly sweetener works well, including a blend of monk fruit and erythritol.
- Large Eggs – Pop the eggs out of the fridge 30 minutes before baking to make sure they are not cold.
- Unsweetened Almond Milk – or any dairy-free milk of your choice like coconut milk or hemp milk. You can also use heavy cream, but the batter will be denser. Learn why regular milk isn’t keto-friendly.
- Baking Powder or half the quantity if you prefer using baking soda.
- Melted Coconut Oil – Melt the coconut oil, measure the amount required by the recipe, and cool down for a few minutes before adding it to the egg mixture. This prevents the oil from ‘cooking’ the eggs. You can also use melted butter if preferred. Butter is also keto-friendly.
- Vanilla Extract
- Fresh Blueberries – or frozen, both options work well. Note that frozen blueberries tend to color the batter slightly blue.
How To Make Keto Blueberry Muffins
- In a large mixing bowl, beat the wet ingredients: large eggs, melted, cooled coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
- Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until it forms a thick muffin batter. Don’t expect the batter to be as thin as regular muffins. Almond flour blueberry muffins batter is always thicker, and it’s what you want to make the best keto blueberry muffins.
- Now fold the blueberries into the batter until evenly distributed.
- Fill a lined muffin tray with grease paper cups up to 3/4 their level.
Tips To Bake Keto Blueberry Muffins
- Don’t Overbake – Bake your muffins for 22 to 28 minutes. The baking time depends on the size of your muffins and the oven mode. Almond flour blueberry muffins brown and burn faster than regular flour-based muffin recipes.
- Test The Baking Process Carefully – Watch out for the color of your muffins. They should be golden brown, and a pick inserted in the center of the muffins should come out clean. If the batter sticks to the pick, keep baking in 5-minute chunks until they are cooked through.
- Cool Down On A Rack Immediately – Keto muffins with berries must be cooled on a cooling rack immediately, or they get too moist. Cool until they reach room temperature. It takes about 30 minutes.
Almond Flour Blueberry Muffins Flavor Variations
You can use this keto blueberry muffin recipe to create a range of blueberry muffin flavors like:
- Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins – Add one teaspoon of lemon extract in the batter and 1-2 tablespoons of lemon zest.
- Keto Blueberry White Chocolate Chip Muffins – stir in 1/3 cup of sugar-free white chocolate chips while you add the blueberries.
- Blueberry Nut Muffins – Stir into the batter 1/3 cup of chopped pecans or almonds.
