Last week I  made Keto Daily’s Muffins, with raspberries (check then out here) instead of blueberries, because it was what I had.  They were delicious!  This week I went with the blueberries.

Blueberry Muffins

(I cut the recipe by 1/3)

1/4 cup Coconut Flour
3  Eggs (room temperature)
4 tbsp Butter (Melted)
1/3 cup Frozen Blueberries
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tbsp Whipping Cream
Pinch of Salt
1 scant tsp Baking Powder
1 tbsp Lemon Juice + Lemon Zest
1/8 tsp Xanthan Gum

Directions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 350ºF

2. In a large bowl combine coconut flour, salt, baking powder and lemon zest.  Set aside.

3. Add eggs*, vanilla, lemon, cream and butter. Beat on high speed for a couple of minutes, until well combined.

*The video I watched on their Facebook post stated that the eggs must be at room temperature to avoid the ‘eggy taste’.

4. Add xanthan gum, beat an additional minute

These were delicious!  As much as I loved the raspberry version, the blueberry was way better!  The addition of the lemon zest really brought the flavours together.

I like to slice and warm in the microwave for about 12 seconds and top with butter.  Sooo good!   My parents even liked them, and they are not keto.  They said they were sweet enough with just the fruit.

This is a great base.  I have so many versions I want to try!

Thank you Keto Daily for this wonderful recipe!
