A friend of mine shared a photo of muffins she made last week. Since then I’ve had a hankering for lemon berry muffins. Well, in all honestly, it started out as lemon blueberry muffins that I wanted. But the store was out of organic frozen blueberries.
I finally got around to trying a new recipe with the organic frozen berry mix I got instead. This is the recipe I modified from The Organic Kitchen’s Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins. I love a lot of keto recipes, but I don’t recommend it for an overall permanent eating life-style. If you’re curious about why, read here.
Initially when I made this, I was surprised at how thick the batter was and I was sure it wasn’t going to turn out, so I didn’t bother to take any photos during the creation process (sorry). But when I tried them they were moist and delicious — I’ll definitely be making them again!
Note: In case it’s not clear in the instructions, you are creating layers — batter on the bottom, then berries, then more batter and a berry on top because it’s very thick. I used my cookie scoop and it worked perfectly to use 1 scoop per layer.
