If you’ve been around here for a while you may have noticed that I love blueberries and like to use them often, especially paired with lemon, like in my Keto Blueberry Lemon Bread

Being the fan of blueberry that I am, I was shocked when I realized I hadn’t shared one of the most classic blueberry treats, low carb blueberry muffins.

So I, of course, got to work and started to create this recipe for you all, and really for me too!

Keto blueberry recipes like these muffins allow you to enjoy blueberries while on a low carb diet. This keto blueberry muffin recipe can be made with either fresh or frozen blueberries which makes them not only delicious but a year-round favorite.

Packed with good for you antioxidants, making these keto blueberry muffins is an easy choice.

When eaten in moderation, blueberries can be part of the keto diet without issue. Blueberries can not only be in low carbs but also have tons of flavor and nutrition making them a perfect fruit choice on keto.

With a little planning of your macros, you can have blueberries be a part of your ketogenic lifestyle. Especially because blueberries pack a lot of health benefits so that a little can go a long way in a keto recipe. 
 
These keto blueberry muffins are now one of my favorites to make as a quick breakfast, or for a lazy brunch on the weekend with the family. But truly, these keto muffins are perfect at any time of day. So, don’t think that they are only a morning option. 

This recipe would be great for making at the beginning of the week as part of meal planning for the week.

But if I’m being honest, in this house the baked goods don’t last more than 24 hours with all of the oh so helpful volunteers to taste test recipes.

Making keto-friendly blueberry muffins may seem like something that is complicated but it’s actually quick and easy!

These keto muffins are made with finely milled almond flour. Something that I almost always recommend when using almond flour is to measure and then sift your almond flour.

This will make for a lighter and fluffier muffin. I recommend you visit our Keto Baking Tips for more of my tried and true ketogenic baking advice and favorite tips.

Because of my love of the blueberry and lemon combination that I mentioned before, I have also included a recipe for a glaze made with confectioner’s sugar-substitute, I like using Lakanto powdered or Swerve Confectioners and lemon juice and extract.

It gives the perfect zing to the sweetness of the blueberries and adds some extra sweetness. This glaze is optional and has not been added to the nutrition facts.

If you’ve become sensitive to sweetness due to living the keto lifestyle for a long time, you can also leave out the glaze and even lower the sweetener in the recipe to adjust to your liking.

Benefits of Blueberries While Doing Keto

When it comes to meeting my nutritional needs, I like to make sure I get the most of the vitamins and minerals my body needs via my foods.

Thankfully, blueberries are full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals which is why I am always looking for creative ways to include them into my ketogenic diet.

Because blueberries are high in many good for you vitamins, they have been found to help bone strength, skin health, blood pressure, diabetes management, and many more!

One cup of blueberries can provide 24% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C and they also contain potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

That’s a whole lot of goodness in a small package!

Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our lives supported by God’s grace.

So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

Randy had been a diabetic for over 15 years and he was dealing with the consequences of this disease. I was a survivor of the Guillan Barre Syndrome and was fighting fibromyalgia and chronic sciatica.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation. 

Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives.  We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
