This recipe uses simple ingredients like almond flour, flax meal, and monkfruit as the sweetener to ensure minimal carbs but maximum flavor. The combination of almond flour and blueberries provides a burst of flavor, color, and vitamins, making them keto-friendly. These muffins offer a nutty flavor and nutritional punch.

The Difference In Flaxmeal

I suggest using the golden flax meal instead of the brown variation for your muffins. Golden flaxseeds have a light, buttery, and slightly sweet taste, while brown flaxseeds have a bolder, toasted flavor. Using dark brown flax meal will overpower the flavor of your muffins and give them an unusual color.

Ingredients for Making Almond Flour Blueberry Muffins 

Dry ingredients

  1. Almond flour – a nutrient-rich alternative to traditional flour with a nutty flavor and texture.
  2. Golden Flax meal – binds the ingredients together and gives structure to the muffins. It also adds a slightly nutty flavor to the muffins.
  3. Monk fruit sweetener – is a low-carb sweetener used as an alternative to sugar.
  4. Salt – enhances the flavor of the muffins.
  5. Baking powder – acts as a leavening agent to make the muffins rise well. 

Wet ingredients 

  1. Unsweetened plain whole milk yogurt – Opt for unsweetened plain whole milk yogurt in your recipe. This ingredient contributes significantly to the moisture and texture of the recipe, ensuring consistent quality in the final product. Refrain from using Greek yogurt in this context, as it won’t provide sufficient moisture to the mixture due to its thicker consistency compared to regular yogurt.
  2. Vanilla extract – adds a pleasant vanilla taste.
  3. Eggs – act as a binding agent, add moisture, and aid in leavening.

Add-ins

  1. Fresh or frozen blueberries – provide a burst of flavor and natural sweetness to your muffins.
