I’ve shared this recipe before in my collection of nut butter recipes and it’s also the same recipe I use to make keto waffles and pancakes. It’s a very versatile recipe!
I made a few simple changes in my last two batches though, and totally PERFECTED this recipe for Keto Blueberry Muffins.
The “magic ingredient” to my keto muffin recipe is nut butter.
I especially love working with the Legendary Foods Flavored Nut Butters because they’re already deliciously flavored and super low carb. But I’ve baked with regular almond butter, Pili Nut Butter, even Macadamia nut butter would be great.
For this recipe I used the Legendary Foods Blueberry Cinnamon Bun Almond Butter to make delicious low carb blueberry muffins, because it’s already full of real blueberries.

I like to add even more blueberries to this recipe for “very berry!” muffins, but that’s totally optional and depends on how “carb stingy” you are. 😉
Low Carb Blueberry Muffin Recipe – Keto Friendly!
- 1/2 cup Legendary Foods Blueberry Cinnamon Bun Almond Butter, room temperature
- 4 Large Eggs
- 2 TBSP Melted Butter or Coconut Oil *
- 1/4 Cup Almond Flour
- 1 TBSP Sweetener *
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- Optional: 35 or 70 grams of diced blueberries *
Notes & Options
* You can use any keto friendly nut butter (almond butter, macadamia butter, pili nut butter, etc) or any of the flavors from Legendary Foods to make different flavors of muffins – like Apple Pie or Pecan Pie muffins instead of blueberry.
* You can also get creative with add-ins like walnuts, sugar free chocolate chips or blueberries for example.
* If you use 35 grams of blueberries and make 10 muffins, they come out to about 2.5 net carbs each. I’ve doubled the blueberries (70 grams) and made 8 larger muffins at about 4 net carbs per muffin.
* I usually use 1 TBSP of Granular Swerve as the sweetener because it measures the same as sugar and leaves NO aftertaste in my low carb recipes.
If you use a different sweetener, use the equivalent to 1 TBSP of sugar.
* This time I used TWO tablespoons (2 TBSP) of Swerve, Brown Sugar Replacement and they turned out WAY better!
I also used a liquid MCT C8/C10 oil this time instead of my usual coconut oil (which is solid and has to be melted for this recipe).
I’ve been using these FBOMB MCT Packets in my morning coffee so I had one on the counter. It turns out the packets are exactly 2 TBSP of oil – perfect!
I was just going for convenience, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover they were WAY more moist than previous batches using melted butter or regular coconut oil. 😉
That plus the (extra) Swerve Brown Sugar combined made this the BEST batch of blueberry muffins I’ve ever made in my keto kitchen. Swerve Brown really enhanced the flavor and they were super moist!
It helps if your eggs are not TOO cold, to prevent the melted butter or oil from clumping on you (not an issue with the liquid MCT oil). You definitely want your nut butter to be room temperature too.
I usually whisk my eggs first and set them aside on the counter while preparing everything else.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Stir together the first three ingredients (eggs, nut butter & oil/butter) until smooth. Add the other ingredients. Mix well. I find it easy enough to mix the ingredients by hand with a large spoon, without using a hand mixer.
If you’re adding in crushed nuts, chocolate chips or diced blueberries you’ll want to fold those in at the end. I use frozen blueberries and dice them in half or quarters – then put them back in the freezer until I’m ready to fold them in, just before baking.
Use a silicone muffin mold, grease a muffin tin liberally or line a muffin tin with muffin papers. (After trying all three, I highly recommend silicone baking molds!)
Dip out 1/4 cup of batter for each muffin to make 10 muffins, or 1/3 cup for 8 larger muffins.
Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.
Check after 10 minutes. Depending on your oven and the size of your muffins, they could take 15-22 minutes. They are done when a toothpick comes out clean.
I got this silicone baking set on Amazon and totally FELL IN LOVE with it!
I will NEVER bake with muffin papers or a traditional muffin pan again. 😛
Without even greasing or spraying it, the muffins come out SO easy and so clean!
That silicone set comes with mini molds and individual muffin molds too which is perfect for your low carb meal prep and for making keto fat bombs, and also making a full muffin recipe. This was such a GREAT find. ♥
The muffins turned out beautiful and delicious as usual!
I use the Free MyFitnessPal Recipe Calculator to enter in my ingredients based on my own labels and the amounts I use, and the number of servings I make it into, which makes logging your portions super easy.
This exact same recipe makes AMAZING blueberry waffles & pancakes too. 😉
YES, this was all made with nut butter! 🙂
Legendary Foods Flavored Nut Butters
(our discount code is: LOWCARBTRAVELER)
You can use ANY nut butter you prefer, BUT…
I don’t personally know any other nut butter that has the flavor and texture of Legendary Foods, and tastes THIS amazing straight out of the jar off a spoon!
If you use a plain nut butter you’ll want to add ingredients or something to flavor and/or sweeten your nut butter recipes, which will of course increase the carb count.
Not only are Legendary Foods nut butters SUPER RICH, they are VERY low carb.;)
Their nut butters are made with real ingredients too, such as real apple bits in the Apple Pie Almond Butter and real blueberries in the Blueberry Cinnamon Bun nut butter. They’re all keto friendly too!
That Apple Pie nut butter is delicious too. It’s GREAT on crisp cucumber slices or celery. I actually ran out of Blueberry Cinnamon Bun nut butter on my last batch of muffins, so I mixed the Blueberry and Apple butters together and… WOW! 🙂
Those turned out amazing, especially with extra blueberries…
Then I thought we might as well add in some more fun flavors (lol) and found a bottle of ChocZero low carb Peach Syrup to drizzle over the Apple Blueberry Muffins.
Our coupon code for ChocZero syrups & chocolates is: TravelingLowCarb (use that code at checkout for our discount)
I put a pat of butter on a muffin, still steaming hot right out of the oven, and drizzled just a bit of the Peach syrup on it. Once I put the warm top back on the muffin and that all melted together… WOWSA. 😉
What a nice breakfast treat!!

- Silicone Baking & Candy Making Set (Amazon)

Sometimes I just work with whatever I have on hand, or stand in front of my keto pantry until a delicious idea strikes me. Combining what was left of both flavors of nut butter and adding a drizzle of peach turned out amazing! 🙂
This is TWO empty jars of Legendary Foods Apple Pie and Blueberry Cinnamon Bun nut butters, lol – they’re THAT good!
I just restocked, and can’t wait to get my next order. 😉
A jar lasts me awhile because it only takes 1/2 cup of the nut butter to make a batch of 10 muffins, which is great for meal prep.
Otherwise I mix it half and half (50/50) with coconut oil and put it in candy molds to make super low carb DELICIOUS keto candy (also called fat bombs).
You can see some of my yummy candy creations in my Nut Butter Recipes post.
So simple, and so great to keep on hand for portion-controlled treats!
Have you tried this keto muffin recipe yet?
I would love to hear your experience with this recipe, any modifications you made to it, and whether you’ve used it for pancakes or waffles yet – or what other creative ways you’ve used it.
It makes great a great loaf too, so I’m making a Low Carb Banana Nut Bread loaf next. Stay tuned for that recipe. I miss banana nut bread with coffee!
I’m off to find a silicone mold for loaves (found one!) because it required entirely too much patience to successfully remove it from a normal baking dish when I made zucchini bread with this recipe. 😛
p.s. This special ends tonight (Sunday, April 14th) at 11:59pm Eastern, but right now you can get 20% off any of their Pecan Pie nut butters. If you want other flavors instead, use our regular coupon code: LOWCARBTRAVELER to still get a discount.
