Earlier this month, I traveled up to Baltimore for the annual Natural Products Expo, which is basically a foodie’s dream weekend.
Imagine a giant convention where thousands of your favorite healthy food companies all offer you free samples of their newest products, many of which haven’t even hit stores yet.
I spent the weekend sampling nut butters, brownies, breakfast bars, paleo waffles, Cauliflower Pizza Crust, raw chocolates, Vegan Mac and Cheese, and at least seven different brands of dairy free gelato or oat milk ice cream.
Two weeks later, I’m still seeing mocha Oat Milk Ice Cream in my dreams…
There were three predominant food trends I noticed at the conference: packaged food products with cauliflower, snacks made with Oat Milk, and everything keto.

The best keto blueberry muffins
The keto trend reflects increased consumer demand for low carb or sugar free products, and I’ve recently been receiving a similar demand from readers to post more keto friendly recipes.
I know the keto diet can be a super polarizing subject.
People either love or hate it, and therefore today’s healthy flourless muffin recipe can easily be keto or non keto, whichever you prefer.
If you do choose to make keto muffins, they can have just over one net carb per serving and one single Weight Watchers smart point each.
Keto blueberry muffin ingredients
The muffin recipe calls for almond flour, sweetener of choice, milk of choice, an egg or flax egg, baking powder, salt, an optional pinch of cinnamon or cardamom, and of course fresh blueberries.
For completely flourless blueberry muffins, you may use fine almond meal instead of the almond flour.
Sweetener options that work include granulated or powdered erythritol or xylitol, an erythritol monk fruit blend, or regular sugar or coconut sugar for non keto muffins.
If using frozen blueberries in place of fresh ones, be sure to thaw them fully and pat off excess ice crystals and moisture before using.
Pretty much any milk of choice can be used, including nondairy coconut milk, almond milk, or oat milk (not keto).
How to make almond flour blueberry muffins
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease a mini muffin tin or a regular size muffin tin, or line the tin with cupcake liners. I personally prefer to make mini muffins because of their lighter texture.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and sweetener.
Stir in all remaining ingredients except the blueberries to form a batter.
Scoop the muffin batter into the prepared muffin cups, then press a few blueberries into each muffin.
For mini muffins, bake thirteen minutes on the center rack of the oven. Or increase the baking time to eighteen minutes for large muffins.
Remove the tin from the oven, and let the pastries cool.
Once firm, carefully go around the sides of each muffin with a knife before popping them out onto a plate.
If you use liners, they should peel off easily after a day.
Store muffins in an airtight covered container for up to four days. I recommend refrigerating them after a few hours for optimal freshness.
Keto vegan blueberry muffin recipe
These low carb muffins are easily vegan if you use one of the numerous vegan egg options on the market.
I’ve successfully made them with Bob’s Egg Replacer, or you can make your own two or three ingredient flax eggs.
If you go with the Bob’s version, simply stir together one tablespoon of the powder with three tablespoons of water. Use this as the egg called for in the recipe.
The vegan muffins will rise and look just like they would if you used a real egg!

Keto Blueberry Muffins
- *Mini muffins will have a lighter texture, but you can definitely make regular-size muffins if you prefer. The recipe yields 4 regular-size muffins.Preheat oven to 350 F. Line or grease a mini muffin tin very well. Stir all dry ingredients very well, then add all remaining ingredients except berries. Scoop into the muffin cups – I added a little batter, placed a few berries per muffin on top, then covered with more batter. You could also just press a few berries into the top of each muffin after filling with batter. Bake 13 minutes on the center rack (or 17-18 for regular-size muffins). Remove from the oven and let cool an additional 10 minutes, during which time they continue to firm up. Carefully go around the sides of each muffin with a knife and pop out. Or if you’ve used liners, they peel off easily after sitting for a day.View Nutrition Facts
