Most of these ingredients are familiar, especially if you’ve been cooking low carb for a while. If not, meet some new friends!
Almond flour – this gluten-free flour is made from blanched and ground almonds. It’s an amazing alternative flour that comes in a variety of fineness – for fluffy, baked goods like these almond flour blueberry muffins, you’ll want the finest flour you can get your hands on.
Psyllium husk – is a lifesaver when it comes to low carb baking. This is because almond flour is significantly more dense than wheat flour and doesn’t have the same binding capabilities — this is where psyllium husk comes in. It’s the glue holding everything together while adding fluff and making our muffins more breadlike!
I only use NOW psyllium husk — other products can turn your baked goods a blue-ish purple!
Erythritol – To sweeten up these muffins! Feel free to swap with allulose, or whatever low carb sweetener you prefer.
Blueberries – are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber! They’re a classic breakfast fruit because of their sweet, tart flavor that’s worth waking up for!
Tools To Make
These basic tools will make these low carb blueberry muffins a breeze!
- Whisk – I use this multi-looped cooking tool to really beat some air into the eggs. Don’t have one? You can use a hand mixer, or a fork to fluff the eggs up!
- Muffin pan + liners – don’t have liners? Use cooking spray!
You’ll want to keep these low carb breakfast muffins on hand so they’re easy to find on an early morning, but maybe not TOO easy or they will all be gone in a day. Store these healthy snacks in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge.
Can You Freeze These?
Freezing these low carb snacks is an easy way to meal prep for a busy week and help them last a little longer. Thaw in the fridge or pop in the microwave or toaster oven to warm up!
At the risk of tempting you to eat this entire recipe at once, I’ll say that you HAVE to try these warm. Fresh from the oven or toaster with a schmear of low carb frosting or cream cheese? Heavenly!!!
If you want a recommendation, I’d point you to this luscious low carb cream cheese frosting.
This recipe is so tasty and versatile, there are lots of ways to customize it! Read on for some tips!
- Turn these into a loaf of bread. Turn this into a low carb blueberry bread by pouring it into a greased 8″ bread pan and baking it in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes. It’s one of my favorite almond flour bread recipes to slice up and serve with some cream cheese on top. OR! Use it as a low carb sandwich bread with some low carb peanut butter in between the slices.
- Add in more fruits or vegetables. This yummy breakfast bread is definitely flexible. Try swapping blueberries out for raspberries, strawberries, or blackberries (all of which are even lower in carbs than blueberries!) Or check out these antioxidant-packed low carb pumpkin muffins and my classic low carb banana muffins!
- Try using other kinds of topping! In addition to the streusel topping, homemade whipped butter or sugar free whipped cream are both amazing options for topping these sweet low carb blueberry muffins. You can also try the topping in these with low carb cheese for something extra special!

- 1 1/4 Cups Almond Flour *
- 1/4 Cup NOW Powdered Psyllium Husk
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1/2 Cup + 2 Tablespoons Swerve or Lakanto (see sweetener notes below)
- 1/4 Cup Almond Milk
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter room temp
- Zest of 1 Lemon optional, but I love the hint of lemon in these!
- 1/2 Cup Blueberries
- Preheat oven to 375 F and line a muffin tin pan with muffin liners.
- Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
- In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine almond milk (1/4 cup), eggs (2), vanilla extract (1 teaspoon) and unsalted butter (2 tablespoons).
- Add the dry ingredients. Combine using the electric mixer, occasionally scraping down the sides to fully incorporate everything.
- Stir in blueberries (1/2 cup) and lemon zest (if using) with a rubber spatula.
- Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan.
- Sprinkle the streusel topping over each of the muffins, and gently press to adhere. If you aren't using the topping, you'll want to use damp fingers to smooth the top of each muffin.
- Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!
Fans Also Made These Low Carb Recipes:
- Almond Flour. Using fine-grained almond flour will yield the most "flour-like" results. My favorite brands are Bob's Red Mill, Trader Joe's, or Costco brands.
- Lakanto, Swerve, or Erythritol. I stick to Lakanto and Swerve which are a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar. If using a different brand of Erythritol, keep in mind it's 70% as sweet as sugar, so you may need to add more to taste.
- Milk. I swap between unsweetened light almond or coconut milk.
- Psyllium Husk. This recipe has ONLY been tested with NOW Psyllium Husk Powder. Some psyllium husk powders can turn baked goods into a blue-ish purple color, and they absorb liquids in varying amounts.
