Keto raspberry recipes like these muffins allow you to enjoy fruit on a low-carb diet.

This keto-friendly raspberry lemon muffin recipe can be made with either fresh or frozen raspberries, which makes them not only delicious but also your new year-round staple. 

Raspberries being packed with vitamins makes these low-carb raspberry muffins a great choice for an after-school snack for your little ones.

When eaten in moderation, raspberries can be part of your keto diet without any issues. Raspberries are not low in carbs and calories.

They also pack a flavor punch, requiring less of them when used in baking. It’s one of the many reasons raspberries are a great fruit choice for keto baking.

These almond flour raspberry muffins are one of my favorites for a quick snack or a last-minute brunch with the family.

But really, these keto muffins are great at any time of day. This recipe is also great for making at the beginning of the week as part of your keto meal prep.

But if I’m being honest, it may be hard to get your family to stop sneaking back to the kitchen for another one.

The following is a list of materials and ingredients you’ll need to bake your keto lemon raspberry muffins. Note that the full printable recipe card is at the bottom of the page.

How To Make Keto Raspberry Muffins

Making keto raspberry cream cheese muffins might sound complicated or time-consuming, but it’s actually quick and easy! These low-carb muffins are made with finely milled almond flour.

I pretty much always recommend when using almond flour to measure and then sift your almond flour. This will make your keto muffins lighter and fluffier.

I recommend you visit our Keto Baking Tips page for more of my tried and true keto baking advice and favorite tips. Once you’ve got your almond flour measured and sifted, preheat your oven and line your muffin tin.

Then, you’ll whip up the room-temperature cream cheese, butter, and sugar substitute of your choice in a large bowl. Add your eggs one at a time, ensuring you combine them well before adding the next. 

I prefer using an electric mixer to whip up the wet ingredients until they’re light and fluffy, but you can do this by hand if you prefer. Next, add your dry ingredients and fold in the raspberries.

Wanting to enhance the raspberry flavor in this recipe, I used lemon extract and lemon zest to brighten the flavor further, making these keto raspberry lemon muffins. 

However, you can use vanilla extract if you prefer a more basic raspberry muffin recipe.

Fill your lined muffin tin with batter and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days or freeze for up to three weeks.

Benefits of Raspberries While Doing Keto

When it comes to my nutritional needs, I like to get the most of the vitamins and minerals my body needs through my foods and supplements where needed.

And if I can get that nutrition at the start of my day with, say, a keto raspberry breakfast muffin, well, even better.

Providing healthy, low-carb raspberry muffins the entire family will embrace is my way of ensuring we are all getting our vitamins naturally. 

Thankfully, raspberries are full of vitamins and antioxidants, which is why I always love looking for creative ways to include them in my ketogenic diet. Raspberries are high in vitamin C; 1 cup contains over half the recommended daily intake!

They are also high in fiber and low in sugar.  Some studies have shown that raspberries may lower blood sugar and improve insulin resistance.

They also have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help with some aches and pains.  That’s a whole lot of good in a small package-a sweet and tart package!

Best Sugar Substitutes For This Recipe

When choosing your sweetener, I have several low-carb options that work well with this keto raspberry muffin recipe.

I really like Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener because the texture is spot on and because there is barely any aftertaste.

This is a great one, especially if you are new to sugar substitutes because it mimics sugar the most in my book.

I’m also partial to Swerve, an erythritol blend, although you should keep in mind that it does have a bit more of a cooling aftertaste that some people dislike. 

Alternatively, you could also use a stevia- and erythritol-based brand like Pyure

This is if you prefer to use stevia in your baked goods. If you go this route, you need to reduce the amount by half since it is twice as sweet. 

Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute, you can also use Splenda with great success.

I know not everyone would agree with me here, and I respect that, but in my book, it’s still better than regular sugar.
