Is blueberry muffin keto?
No, a classic blueberry muffin recipe is not keto-friendly as it contains high-carb wheat flour, sugar, and milk. These three ingredients are high in sugar, carbs and spike your blood sugar level. It means it can keep you out of ketosis.
However, it’s easy to make keto blueberry muffins at home.
How to make keto blueberry muffins with almond flour?
It’s very easy to make keto-friendly blueberry muffins using any keto flour and keto sweeteners. There are two ways to make moist blueberry muffins keto recipes.
Either like in this recipe with almond flour or with coconut flour. For the latter, read my Keto Coconut Flour Blueberry Muffin Recipe.
All you need to make blueberry keto muffins with almond flour are:
- Almond flour – make sure you use ultra-fine almond flour with a thin texture and golden color. Almond meal is coarse, dark in color, and gives a gritty texture to keto muffin recipes, so I don’t recommend this option.
- Erythritol – any brand of keto-friendly sweetener works well, including a blend of monk fruit and erythritol.
- Large eggs – pop the eggs out of the fridge 1 hour before baking to make sure they are not cold.
- Unsweetened almond milk – or any dairy-free milk of your choice like coconut milk or hemp milk. You can also use heavy cream, but the batter will be denser.
- Baking powder or half the quantity to replace with baking soda.
- Melted coconut oil – melt the coconut oil, measure the amount required by the recipe and cool down for few minutes before adding to the egg mixture. This prevents the oil from ‘cooking’ the eggs. You can also use melted butter if preferred. Butter is also keto-friendly.
- Vanilla extract
- Fresh blueberries – or frozen, both options work well. Note that frozen blueberries tend to color the batter slightly blue.
Combine wet ingredients to dry ingredients
First, in a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, baking powder, and erythritol. Set aside.

In another bowl, beat eggs, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extra.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until it forms a thick muffin batter. Don’t expect the batter to be as thin as regular muffins.
Almond flour blueberry muffins batter is always thicker, and it’s what you want to make the best keto blueberry muffins.
Now fold in the blueberries into the batter until evenly distributed.
Preheat oven to 350F (180C) and prepare a 12-holes muffin tray with muffin cups – you can use silicon or paper case. You can also grease the muffin tin holes with melted coconut oil or butter if you don’t have paper liners.
Fill the 12-muffin pan up to 3/4 of their level with the keto blueberry muffin recipe.
Bake the muffins
Bake your muffins for 25-35 minutes. The baking time depends on the size of your muffins and the oven mode.
They bake faster on a convection mode than regular mode. Watch out for the color of your muffins. They should be golden brown, and a pick inserted in the center of the muffins should come out clean.
If the batter sticks to the pick, keep baking by 5-minute chunks until they are cooked through.
Coll down the muffins on a cooling rack until they reach room temperature. It takes about 30 minutes.
Then store the muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days or freeze for later.
If you freeze your keto blueberry muffins, thaw the day before eating on a rack.
Keto blueberry muffin add-ons
You can use this keto blueberry muffin recipe to create a range of blueberry muffins flavor like:
- Keto lemon blueberry muffins – add 1 teaspoon of lemon extract in the batter and 1-2 tablespoons of lemon zest.
- Keto blueberry white chocolate chips muffins – stir in 1/3 cup of sugar-free white chocolate chips while you add the blueberries.
- Keto blueberry nut muffins – stir into the batter 1/3 cup of chopped pecans or almonds.
How to prevent blueberries from sinking to the bottom?
This is one of the most common problems in baking blueberry muffins, keto or not. Sometimes, the blueberries sink to the bottom of the muffin cup.
To avoid that, use fresh blueberries, or roll the frozen blueberries into 1 tablespoon of coconut flour before adding them into the keto muffin batter.
The coconut flour is high in fiber and soaks the moisture around the blueberries, preventing them from sinking in the muffin tin.
A keto kid-friendly recipe
These keto blueberry muffins are perfect for kids. They are sugar-free, fulfilling, containing a lot of fiber and healthy fats from the nuts. They make a delicious snack for kids or lunchbox filling for school.
Can I use coconut flour?
