These Keto Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are a sweet, tart, and low-carb dessert that everyone will love!
Keto Breakfast Baked Good
I’ve recently done a lot of recipe testing for low-carb desserts that feature lemon. I just love the flavor combination of a baked good with the tartness of citrus, all wrapped into one delicious bite!
Of course, a Lemon Poppy Seed recipe was necessary! The result? These muffins that are soft, sweet, and simple to make!
We prepped a double batch over the weekend, stored them in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and enjoyed one every morning with a cup of cold brew coffee on the side. Basically, my personal version of low-carb breakfast HEAVEN!
Like my Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Muffins, this muffin recipe is also nut-free!
Instead of baking with almond flour like I do in many of my keto and low-carb baked good recipes, this recipe uses coconut flour, making it a perfect option for those who follow a ketogenic diet and also have a nut allergy or intolerance.
Monk Fruit Sweetener
This recipe, like a majority of my keto baked good recipes, features Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener, my favorite natural sweetener! Monk fruit sweetener contains zero calories, is net-carb-free, won’t spike your blood sugar (very diabetic friendly!), and tastes exactly like traditional sugar. If you are looking for a sweetener that tastes like sugar and is low-carb, keto, and paleo-compliant, I highly recommend trying Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener! You can use code “REALBALANCED” for 20% off your total order!
