Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins are soon to be a weekly brunch staple. Lemons and blueberries together are magical. Put both ingredients into a muffin and you have a winning combo! These muffins are keto, low-carb, grain-free, and gluten-free!
Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins
We would definitely put these Keto Lemon Blueberry 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 the top that makes these AMAZING. We mean so ridiculously GOOD!

Lemon + Blueberry = Perfection
We absolutely love making keto muffins and there is nothing better than the classic pairing of lemon and blueberries.
Lemon truly brings out the flavor of the blueberries. And the flavor combo add an incredible layer of depth to these muffins.
Lemons have a tendency to remind us of spring, but these muffins are great all year-round!
So whether it’s a crisp fall day, snowy winter day, or a warm summer day, we hope you enjoy these!

Can You Have Fruits on Keto?
While some people strictly prohibit fruits on the keto diet, we believe that certain low-carb fruits can be included in moderation as part of a healthy keto diet. When looking at fruit, pay attention to the net carb count (total carbs minus fiber).
Here are our CKL-approved fruits:
- Lemons and Limes: 4 grams net carbs/fruit
- Blackberries: 6 grams net carbs/cup
- Raspberries: 7 grams net carbs/cup
- Strawberries: 8 grams net carbs/cup
- Blueberries: 9 grams net carbs/half cup
This recipe uses blueberries and lemon, which are packed with antioxidants and essential nutrients and each muffin only has 6 net carbs.
The Key To a Perfectly Moist Muffin
Two words: SOUR CREAM
That's right! Adding sour cream to your keto lemon blueberry muffin batter makes them so soft and moist.
We utilize this hack all the time! So if you have a muffin recipe that calls for milk, swap it one-for-one with sour cream.
You will get a super moist, fluffy muffin every time!
Easy Keto Muffin Glaze
We added a recipe for a simple glaze to drizzle over the muffin.
The glaze on top adds the perfect sweet touch and low how pretty it makes them look!
And it is so easy to make -just mix together a cup of confectioner erythritol with a juice of 1 lemon. Don't have confectioner erythritol? No problem - just add granular erythritol to a food processor and process until it becomes a powder.
Can You Use Frozen Blueberries
Yes - you can definitely swap out frozen blueberries, just follow these steps:
- Thaw the blueberries in the refrigerator overnight.
- Drain any excess juice.
- Pat the blueberries dry between several layers of paper towels.
- Fold the blueberries in gently so they don't turn the batter blue.
What Equipment You Need
- Measuring cups
- Mixing bowls
- Muffin tin
- Muffin liners
- Electric mixer (stand mixer or hand mixer)
That's it!! We told you it was easy!
Quick Muffin Tips Before You Bake
Here are some quick pro tips before you start:
- 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.
Let's get cooking!
