My family-favorite keto blueberry muffin recipe that you can make in one bowl in less than 30 minutes. They make the perfect keto breakfast to take on the go. Made with almond flour and coconut flour, these keto muffins are gluten-free, keto, and low-carb.
Keto Blueberry Muffins
There’s nothing like a classic blueberry muffin. I love this recipe for keto scones because it makes tender and moist muffins with a bakery-style crumb and a light texture.
The recipe calls for a handful of common keto baking ingredients, plus fresh or frozen blueberries. The great thing about this recipe is that can be made in less than 30 minutes — so you can easily make it on a weekend morning.
These blueberry muffins aren’t too sweet, and they are perfect spread with a little butter. Pair them with hot tea or bulletproof coffee.

Ingredients in Keto Blueberry Muffins
This keto muffin recipe calls for a handful of common keto ingredients, like almond flour, coconut flour, and butter. A couple of eggs and some unsweetened almond milk keeps these keto muffins moist and fluffy.
You’ll notice that this recipe uses a mix of almond four and coconut flour. I like to use both for the best texture. Using just almond flour on its own can create a dense texture that I don’t always love — so using a bit of coconut flour tends to lighten things up.
Like a lot of keto baking recipes, these muffins start out with finely-ground almond flour. Almond flour is one of the best grain-free alternatives to all-purpose wheat flour.
For baking, I like to use an almond flour made from blanched almonds with a super-fine ground texture. I like Bob’s Red Mill and Wellbee’s brand fine almond flour, which you can find on Amazon.
Coconut flour is a high fiber flour that is super useful in gluten-free, grain-free and low-carb baking.
But because of its high-fiber content, baking with coconut flour can be a bit tricky. Coconut flour absorbs liquid like crazy — so recipes using coconut flour tend to have a higher ratio of wet ingredients like eggs, coconut milk, or water.
Xanthan gum is a gluten-free baking staple. It is a common food additive that helps keto baked good to retain their structure in the absence of gluten. A little bit of xanthan gum goes a long way.
If you don’t have xanthan gum, you can try substituting a teaspoon or two of psyllium husk powder for similar, but not identical, results.

How to Make Keto Blueberry Muffins
These simple blueberry muffins are very easy to make. To start, combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. I like to whisk the dry ingredients together first, to break up any lumps in the almond flour and combine the other ingredients thoroughly.
Then, in another smaller mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients, including the melted butter, eggs, milk and vanilla. Next, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
If you can, let the batter rest for a few minutes before you fold in the blueberries. This will give the batter a chance to hydrate and thicken up.
I like to use a large cookie scoop to portion the batter into your prepared muffin tin, making sure not to fill each cup more than 3/4 full. Finally, bake 20-25 minutes until tops are golden and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Tips for Baking Keto Muffins
This keto blueberry muffins recipe is a great easy recipe that is perfect for beginning keto bakers. Here are a few more tips to help you bake the best batch of keto scones possible.
- Use finely ground almond flour. Using an almond flour labeled “super-fine” will give you the best texture. Less gritty, and more like actual flour.
- If you have the time, let the dough rest for up to 10 minutes before baking to allow the flour to hydrate. Keto flours, especially coconut flour, really soak up the liquid ingredients. If you can spare a few extra minutes (like while the oven preheats) give the dough a chance to hydrate. That way, the scone dough will be easier to portion out into the muffin tin. And, the blueberries will be less likely to sink to the bottom.
- Use muffin paper liners to prevent sticking. Keto baked goods like to stick to baking pans. So, for extra insurance against sticking and burning, you can even grease the muffin liners.

How to Store Keto Muffins
After baking, you can store keto blueberry muffins in a lidded container at room temperature for 2-3 days.
You can also make these blueberry muffins ahead of time and freeze them to eat later. Sometimes, I like to make a double batch and freeze half. To do this, freeze them after baking and cooling. Store them well wrapped. You can warm them up in the oven if you want, or reheat them in the microwave just before serving.

I made 12 muffins with this recipe – delicious! Can you tell me how many net carbs per muffin?
How many net carbs per muffin and how many carbs of fat?
Nutrition info is below the recipe in the recipe card. Each muffin has 2 net carbs and 11 grams of fat. Thanks!
Hi, Net carbs will always be: Total Carbs minus Fiber.
There is 4g per muffin in the six count the recipe calls for. The Fiber is 2g per muffin making each of the six muffins Net Carbs 2g. If you made 12 smaller muffins You can divide that in half. Each of the 12 smaller muffins would be ( 1g Net Carbs) = )
What kind of sweetener did you use in these muffins?
My go-to is Swerve granulated sweetener!
LOVE THESE MUFFINS! Since giving up wheat, I’ve missed muffins but no more! I doubled the blueberries and added chopped nuts… I may add Lily’s dark chocolate baking chips next time. You mentioned xanthan gum in the intro but it’s not in the recipe. Would like to try adding that next time. How much should I add?
Thanks for letting me know! It’s 1/4 tsp.
Made these last week and they were delicious. My husband said they were moist. I reduced the amount of butter to 1/3 and they turned out great! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
Made these today. Great flavor. The batter was really thick and I even added a lil more almond milk. Cooked for 25 minutes. Top was really crunchy. Wondering what I could try different next time… they were easy to make. Use arrowroot instead of xanthan.
Hmm, well my first guess is that the arrowroot might have made a difference. It’s a starch, like cornstarch, rather than a gum.
