The Best Keto Blueberry Muffins Recipe
The Humble Muffin
Before we discovered the best keto blueberry muffins recipe, life was hard. Because when you start a keto diet, it feels as though you will miss out on yummy treats. Many people even have some basic savory recipes to get them through the day and everything else is off limits. It’s also common to feel discouraged and abandon your diet, if you find what you think is a good treat recipe, and then after attempting to make it, the result is just an inedible disaster. It truly feels like you can never be healthy and satisfied at the same time.

You don’t even need to be a whizz in the kitchen or know how to properly pronounce ingredients like “quinoa”. All you need is a little bit of encouragement and guidance, which is what we do best.
So, you can either click the close tab on your browser or jump over to our point of view. Because look at it this way, there is always going to be loads of junk food in the supermarket.

Which leads us to the best keto blueberry muffins recipe in the world!
This recipe contains many of the ingredients you’ll already have on your usual grocery list. E.g. eggs, baking powder, almond flour, sweetener, and mayonnaise. And yes, we did say mayonnaise! Because one of the keto secrets that hasn’t fully been announced in the “normal” baking world, is that mayonnaise is a very special ingredient. When used in a recipe like this, it is pretty much flavorless but adds every single muffin with the all-important moisture that cake lovers crave. Honestly, there is nothing worse than a batch of bone-dry muffins, so do trust us on the mayonnaise.
Keto lovers will swoon when they read the nutrition of this recipe. While these are not completely zero carb muffins, each muffin only has 2.7 grams of net carbs, which means it fits in perfectly with any Ketogenic or Atkins style diet. They also contain a whopping 5.5 grams of protein and 19.5 grams of fat, which is great for getting your macros in check. Finally, each muffin only contains 220 calories, which is less than half of the calories that are usually found within the usual sugary blueberry muffins. Perfect for anyone watching their weight!
So, what are you waiting for? Get your baking apron on and bake yourself the ultimate keto treat!
Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C
Set aside 5 large blueberries and cut the in half, set these aside. Cut the remaining blueberries into quarters.
Using a hand mixer, thoroughly combine eggs, mayonnaise, blueberry quarters and vanilla extract. Set aside.
In a separate bowl combine the almond flour, Swerve, salt and baking powder.
Thoroughly combine the wet and dry ingredients, use hand mixer if necessary. The batter will be thicker than normal muffin batter, this is normal.
Spoon 1/4 cup of the batter into 10 muffin liners (using a measuring cup greased with coconut oil for easy transfer).
7. Top each muffin with a blueberry halve.
8. Bake at 350°F/175°C for 20-25 mins, until muffin tops have browned.
*Note, you do not taste the mayo AT ALL. It provides necessary fat and moisture for the muffins and adds 0 carbs. I have tried substituting with sour cream and Greek yogurt and the muffins come out dry, dense and hard to swallow. Don’t be afraid of the mayo (it’s basically just eggs, vinegar and lemon juice anyway).
