Traditional muffins made with flour, added sugar, and often fruit for flavor and interest obviously contain too many carbs to be keto. But, if you substitute a nut flour for the all-purpose flour (or make it even easier and use a ready-to-go keto muffin mix), use a keto sweetener like monk fruit, and a fruit that’s low in carbs but big in flavor, you have a keto-friendly muffin that can help you satisfy any muffin cravings you may get.
Keto Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins
Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 12 muffins
¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons water
½ cup poppy seeds
¼ cup monk fruit
2-3 drops lemon essential oil
1 lemon, zested
Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix well to combine.
Spray a muffin tin with the Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Spray, or line with paper cups. Spoon an equal amount of mixture into each muffin tin slot (leave about ¼ inch from the batter to the top of the circle of each muffin slot).
Bake for 35–40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Remove tin from the oven and allow muffins to cool for about 5 minutes in the tin before removing.
