Gluten-Free Keto Blueberry Muffins

These low carb Gluten-Free Keto Blueberry Muffins are moist, tender muffins made with almond flour and loaded with juicy blueberries! This healthy recipe is grain-free and can be made dairy-free too!

Recently, I made Gluten-Free Keto Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins and they were so darn good! I decided to use the same base recipe to make a blueberry version today because who doesn’t love blueberries?! This recipe did not disappoint and I just had to share it with you all!

These muffins are made with almond flour, which produces a moist, tender crumb. So good. These muffins are delicious and best enjoyed the same day but they do keep in an air-tight container for several days.

Tips and Substitutions for Gluten-Free Keto Blueberry Muffins

The recipe for these muffins is pretty straight forward and easy to do. Below are some tips to ensure the perfect muffin as well as some easy substitutions to make these healthier or diet-compliant!

  • Mix your dry ingredients well before adding the wet ingredients. While this batter comes together in the same bowl, it is important to make sure the dry ingredients are blended first. This will ensure you get the perfect texture and flavour in every muffin!
  • Substitute the butter and milk for dairy-free options. I have made these muffins with coconut oil in place of the butter as well as almond milk in place of the milk (other non-dairy options work too). Substitutions are in equal 1:1 ratios.
  • Use keto sweetener options like Erythritol in place of sugar to ensure these are keto-friendly and low carb. Using almond flour in this recipe in place of all purpose flour decreases the carbs dramatically, but sugar is a carb as well. If you are on a keto diet and trying to keep your carb intake low, use a keto sweetener instead of sugar.
  • Use gluten-free baking powder and baking soda. Although the brands I use are gf (even though I am not celiac nor was I specifically looking for gf versions), these ingredients are not always gf. If you are celiac or following a strict gluten-free diet, be sure to buy brands that are gf. Many brand-name products are already gf but you may want to check first before using.
  • These muffins are best when consumed the same day. Fresh muffins are always best but these will last for a few days. Almond flour doesn’t absorb moisture the same way all purpose flour does. As they sit, they do tend to get more moist the next day as opposed to drying out like regular muffins.
  • Storing muffins. You can store these muffins in an air-tight container at room temperature for several days. You can also freeze them in an air-tight container for up to a month.
