Lemons and blueberries together are magical. Put both ingredients into a keto muffin and you have a winning combo!
We would definitely put these muffins up there, actually we would put these ABOVE any carby version of muffins out there! We know that is a bold statement, but we can't get over the super light and soft texture of these muffins.
The sweet blueberries contrast perfectly with the tart lemon zest and juice in the batter. Oh and then there is the sweet glaze poured over top that make these AMAZING. We mean so ridiculously GOOD!
- Use muffin liners to avoid the muffin batter sticking to the pan.
- Don't skip the lemon zest (which comes from the peel of the lemon by using a microplane). The peel has incredible flavor!
- Be careful when you add in the blueberries! They can break easily, so slowly and delicately fold them into the muffin batter.
What Equipment You Need:
