Keto Blueberry Muffins

Must Try

Lolita Carricohttp://ketology.net
A certified nutritionist and self-taught chef with a love for entertaining and experimenting with food, Lolita Carrico created Ketology after struggling for years with her own hormonal changes and weight gain. After having two children, she found that managing her weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. After researching the ketogenic diet thoroughly and understanding the science and nutritional aspects, she began her keto journey in 2018. Within three months, she shed 25 pounds and her mood improved, focus sharpened and her energy was through the roof. Three years later, she has maintained a 55-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

While most fruit is unfortunately not keto-approved, berries are delightfully low on the glycemic index and therefore allowed on keto – within moderation! I always have blueberries and blackberries on my keto grocery list — for snacks with some almonds or pecans or for these delicious and moist keto blueberry muffins! My kids love these — they’ve slowly been adopting the keto way however with these, you’d never know you were saving a ton of sugar and carbs. I used almond flour in these, and sometimes use a combo of coconut flour and almond flour in my keto muffins, but even with the more distinctive texture of almond flour (I use a superfine milled version to eliminate as much grittiness as possible) – these keto blueberry muffins have a wonderfully wholesome and homemade texture with plenty of flavor.

Why are Blueberries a Ketology Superfood?

First, we love that blueberries, and most berries in general, are keto friendly. I put them in my chia pudding and other recipes for a naturally sweet option. Beyond being one of the few acceptable keto fruits, blueberries are antioxidant powerhouses. Blueberries also help regulate blood sugar – which is essential in a keto diet and boosts immunity while protecting from heart disease.

The trick to fluffy muffins is to mix your dry and wet ingredients separately before combining – you get a more consistent texture which is helpful when using almond flour. I fold the fresh blueberries into my keto blueberry muffins at the very end to ensure we get full, juicy blueberries in each delicious bite!
