Easy Recipe: Blueberry Muffins With Lemon Icing (Low-Carb, Gluten Free, Keto, Paleo, Diabetic Friendly)

SERVINGS: ~12 MUFFINS (~70 GRAMS EACH)

PREP TIME: 20 MINS

TOTAL TIME: 45 MINS

INGREDIENTS

Muffins

Lemon Frosting (Optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

Blueberry Muffins

  1. Heat oven to eat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Line a muffin pan with silicone or parchment paper muffin liners.
  2. If needed, microwave the coconut oil for 30 seconds to soften, but it should not be melted if possible.
  3. Place the coconut oil into a mixing bowl and beat with the sweetener and salt. Add the vanilla extract, egg, and almond milk. Mix together.
  4. Mix in baking powder and then stir in almond flour.
  5. In a separate small bowl, mix together 1 Tbsp of allulose and 1 Tbsp of almond flour
  6. Roll your blueberries in the small bowl from step #5 to give them a coating (prevents them from sinking in the batter during baking)
  7. Fold the blueberries into the batter mixture in your large bowl
  8. Distribute the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Using a cookie scoop can help.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes (at 10-12 minutes, take pans out, rotate positions, and put back in the oven), until top is golden and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

     

Lemon Frosting

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese together with a mixer until fully combined. It helps if the butter and cream cheese have softened some before doing this (you can zap them in the microwave for 15 seconds to help)
  2. OPTIONAL: Pour the granulated sweetener into a blender or food processor. Blend the sweetener until it is fine, fluffy, and powdered. Powdering your sweetener makes for a smoother frosting.
  3. Add the sweetener, lemon extract, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and lemon zest to your bowl and beat slowly until the sweetener is incorporated (go slow to avoid it getting blown into the air)
  4. Once the sweetener is incorporated, beat on high for 2 minute or until fluffy
  5. Use a piping bag (something like these) to pipe the lemon frosting on top of the muffins you baked in the steps above. Feel free to garnish the top with some fresh blueberries!
  6. Enjoy! Keep any remaining blueberry muffins in an airtight container in your fridge. If refrigerated, they should be good for about a week.
