blueberry lemon muffins keto low carb gluten free

These blueberry muffins are divine!!  No, they really are pretty incredible.  A hint of lemon tames the sweetness ever so slightly and adds such a freshness to them!  They are soft, moist and of course, bursting with blueberry goodness.  If you like blueberries, you really must make these!

Ingredients

1 3/4 cups super fine almond flour

1/4 cup Oat Fiber (see note below)

3/4 cup of fresh blueberries

2 eggs

1/3 cup sour cream

1/3 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup swerve confectioners

2 teaspoons baking powder

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350F.

Add the flour, baking powder, oat fiber and salt to a bowl and whisk together, then set aside.

In a separate bowl, add of the wet ingredients mix using a hand mixer or whisk.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix just until combined.

Gently fold in the blueberries, then scoop into silicone cupcake liners or paper liners.

*Note:  The Oat Fiber is really important in this recipe.  I use it in so many recipes, because of the amazing texture it gives whatever I am baking!  It is hands down, the best ingredient I’ve baked with and is really worth buying.  I use Lifesource Foods Oat Fiber 500 and I buy it in the 16 ounce bag here.  The bag lasts a while because you don’t need to use much in your recipes.

Oat Fiber, is not the same as Oat Flour, which is made from grinding oats.  Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outside husks of oats and is pure insoluble fiber.  Insoluble fibers do not dissolve in water and are not broken down in the digestive tract.

These are my favorite recipes that I’ve made using Oat Fiber:

Recipe Notes

*Note:  The Oat Fiber is an important ingredient in these muffins, as it adds such an amazing texture, unlike anything else I’ve ever baked with.  Therefore, I cannot say any substitution would suffice and still give you that great texture that makes these comparable to traditional  muffins.  I use Lifesource Foods Oat Fiber 500 and I buy it in the 16 ounce bag on Amazon (link in recipe).
