What is a good low carb breakfast?
Keto and low carb diet has a large variety of recipes you can make or create to keep yourself full of energy for the whole day. Breakfast is a very important part of the day and i don’t recommend skipping it. I have a few more low carb breakfast recipes on TheTopMeal like this zucchini fritters and cauliflower breakfast pancakes. Try them next week!
I just love, love how moist this muffins are! When blueberries are not in season you can totally use dried blueberries. Fresh blueberries are always better because they are juicy and add an extra flavor. They also add some pretty color to the dough and to cooked muffins as well.
Lemon peel add some pretty yellow color as well to our muffins. Lemon in general is a great add-on to any dough. Muffins become very fragrant and your kitchen just fills up with an amazing aroma.
How to make keto blueberry muffins
Start with making a dough. I chose to mix the dough in my high speed blender for smoother consistency. You can mix ingredients in a medium size bowl using a spoon or a fork. the dough will be pretty thick so i don’t recommend using a whisk.
Oven should be preheated to 325 degrees. This recipe makes exactly 12 muffins so you will only need 1 muffin tin and 12 paper muffin cups.
Once you scooped all the dough into to the muffin tin, make sure to put a few blueberries on top of each muffin. Push it in a bit. This little trick will add extra flavor and pretty colors to your dessert ( or breakfast).
How to store keto blueberry muffins
I recommend to store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week. If you don’t have a reusable container, just use a ziplock bag. I like to take one muffing out in the morning and eat it cold with the hot coffee or i heat it in the microwave for about 30 minutes.
If you have an air fryer, you can heat muffins there. For about 2 minutes at 350 degrees.
Can you freeze paleo lemon blueberry muffins?
Absolutely! I prefer this method the most since i never eat the whole batch in time before it gets bad. Place muffins in your container and freeze for up to couple months. Make sure there is no air comes into your container or muffins will get freezer burned. To defrost, just leave it in the fridge overnight and then pop onto the oven, air fryer or microwave for couple minutes. Put a little piece of butter on top to keep muffins moist.

I used a regular full fat popular brand yogurt, without any refined sugar and additional ingredients. Greek yogurt also can be used successfully. Or sour cream!
