KETO BLUEBERRY MUFFINS

KETO BLUEBERRY MUFFINS. An all-rounder, these light and fluffy Keto blueberry muffins are great for breakfast, but also perfect as a nutritious low carb snack. From my entire family, these got the thumbs up, including the carb-lovers!

You guys, with how these muffins have turned out, I’m SO pleased. They are unbelievably fluffy and light!

Instead of wheat flour, these muffins use almond flour, which makes them low in carbs. Plus, instead of sugar, I’m using erythritol to achieve a pleasant but not overpowering sweetness.

FLAVOUR VARIATIONS

Add 1 tbsp of grated orange zest, to add a fruity-zingy note.

Replace with any other berries you have available if you don’t have blueberries. Blackberries, cranberries and raspberries can be used whole. Cut them into smaller pieces first if you’re using strawberries. You could even use dried berries!

SUBSTITUTIONS

For Greek yoghurt, you can substitute the sour cream if you like. In this case, also to achieve a similar fat content, add 2 tbsp of butter.

HOW TO STORE KETO BLUEBERRY MUFFINS

Wait until your muffins are cooled(fully), then with a lid, store them in a cake/muffin tin. For a couple of days, they are fine on the counter. For up to FIVE days, after that keep them in the fridge.

CAN YOU FREEZE THEM?

Absolutely! Almond flour muffins freeze well. I like to make a double batch and when I want a treat, take one out at a time! For 20-30 seconds, simply reheat in the microwave/defrost at room temperature.
