Bakery Style Low Carb Blueberry Muffins


  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • Sweetener equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 6 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tsp granulated xylitol or erythritol for sprinkling (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 325F and grease a standard 12-cavity non-stick muffin tin very well (or line with paper liners, if you’re muffin tin is not very non-stick).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, coconut flour, baking powder, lemon zest, and salt. Stir in eggs, almond milk, butter, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Gently fold in blueberries. Divide batter among prepared muffin cups and bake 30 to 40 minutes, until set and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Remove and sprinkle with granulated sweetener, if using. Let cool 20 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

I am curious if using coconut flour causes the muffin to taste like a coconut? I have never baked with coconut flour. I want the muffins to taste like blueberries and not coconut. I do not care for the taste of coconut.

These were pretty good. The only downside I had with these was the grainy texture that accompanies almond flour. I hate the gritty texture! I’ve tried three different brands, including Bob’s Red Mill fine almond flour and they all are gritty. Notes: This made a really thick batter, so I didn’t fold the blueberries into the batter, I dropped them on top and next time, I’ll push a few in because they didn’t sink much. For an extra special treat, slice them in half and toast them, then slather them in butter. Deeee-vine! (Yes, I intended to butcher the spelling.)… Read more »

My batter is not liquid at all. Is it supposed to like cake batter?


Yes, the batter is thick. Coconut flour acts like a dried out sponge when it hits water, and just soaks it all up! They’ll bake up okay, though.


If using stevia how much would you use?


If you are using the powdered form, it is usually equal amounts. I’m not really familiar with the liquid form so I don’t know the equivalent.


these are my favorite muffin, this time I did not have almond mild so I used a can of coconut milk, and they are still delicious :)
thank you


8 carbs for the batch of 12, or 8 carbs each?



it would be per muffin i did a rough calculation and the almond meal on its own without anything else added is 12 carbs, so it would be each muffin 8s 8 carbs

Fantastic blueberry muffins, but most of my blueberries fall to the bottom of the muffin pan too, and I’ve heard that this is normal whenever you make any blueberry muffin recipe. (Gravity, right?). Anyway, I heard long ago that by putting a little flour (almond flour) on wet blueberries before adding them to the mixture; that will prevent most of them from falling to the bottom of the muffin pan. Anyone else heard this before or is it a “southern” thing? (Note: this will happen to any blueberry muffin recipe you made; absolutely nothing is wrong with this recipe.)

Yes I always put some ‘flour’ in with my blueberries and give it a good ‘shake’ to get the majority of them covered and it does help them settle in the dough instead of all falling at the bottom of the muffin (bread) etc…


I didn’t fold mine in, I dropped them on top. My batter was so thick that very few sunk actually. Try dropping them on the top of the batter once they are in the muffin tins and push a couple down inside the batter next time. And yes, I’ve heard of coating them in flour to prevent them from sinking, and I live in Michigan! (Of course, my mother was born and raised in West Virginia, so I’m a half-breed, lol. I like to think I get the best of Yankee and mountaineer traits.)


These are to die for! Amazing and phenomenal. These tastes like the full fat/full carb version. YOU HAVE GOT TO TRY THESE. I usually have a problem with low carb food, because it doesn’t taste as good as the “normal” food. This is on my rotation list – I will fix these every week. They really are THAT GOOD!!! If you have other recipes like this that taste this good, please let me know!

I can honestly say this is the first low carb/keto friendly bread/baked good recipe that I have really liked! I am not a fan of coconut flour, but you can’t taste it and I’m sure it helps with the texture. I used coconut milk as I don’t care for almond, and it worked great! I doubled the blueberries because I thought one cup didn’t seem like much, and so they all settled to the bottoms of the muffins and there was a little sogginess there, but still delicious! I will likely not double them next time! :-) I used 1/4… Read more »

Try dropping the blueberries on top of the batter once they are in the muffin tins. Mine didn’t sink much at all.
