Living healthy doesn’t mean you have to give up sweets and muffins. My Keto Strawberry Lemon Muffins with Lemon Glaze are absolutely divine and will totally hit the sweet spot. They are filled with big chunks of fresh strawberries and fresh lemon juice. Healthy seriously never tasted so good! Warm them up or eat them cold. Both ways are perfect!

Which sweeteners are compliant for these Keto Strawberry Lemon Muffins?

Below are my favorite go-to sweeteners. Not only are these considered Keto, but they are also complaint when following a Paleo diet. I use granulated sweetener for the muffin recipe and the powdered form for the glaze. Most all of these can be found at any health food store and some are even located at Walmart and Target.

How to store these Keto Strawberry Lemon Muffins:

  • Last up to 4 days: Cool the muffins completely before storing. Line an airtight container with paper towels and place the muffins on top in a single layer. Seal with an airtight lid. If the paper towels become damp, replace them every few days. Muffins will last up to four days stored this way.
  • Freeze: If you can’t eat them all in once setting, no worries, you can even through them in the freezer in a freezer proof container for up to 3 months. Simply thaw and enjoy!

These muffins are even kid friendly. Eloise and Nora, my daughters both love snacking on these after school and even taking them in their lunchbox for a fun dessert. In addition to being kid friendly, they are also husband approved. Joel, my husband can literally eat the whole batch in one sitting! Bottom line, the whole family will dig them!

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 muffins

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients:
2 3/4 cups almond flour
1/2 cup granulated monk fruit*
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt

Wet Ingredients:
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup chopped strawberries
3 tablespoon ghee, melted or vegan butter
1/4 cup coconut milk

Glaze:
3/4 cup powdered swerve*
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 lemon, zested
1 tabelspoon coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a cupcake pan with 12 paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.  In a large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
  3. Use a rubber spatula to fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in ¼-cup increments.
    once combined, carefully fold in the strawberries. Spoon the batter evenly into the paper liners.

  7. Drizzle each muffin with the glaze and lemon zest before serving. If leftovers, store in an airtight container. Will last up to 1 week.

  1. These muffins are so good!! Little confusing on the glaze though…are you supposed to heat it up first and then put it in the fridge? It is definitely not the consistency that your pictures look like.

    1. Thank you! Also, you don’t heat the glaze up at all. You mix together then add to the fridge. I’ve also noted that if you want the glaze thicker, you will simply add more powdered keto sweetener.

  2. Thank you for sharing this amazing yummy recipe. These muffins are delicious. I made them without the glaze and they are still very yummy. I am making another patch for this week.

  3. Wow! These were really really good! I was hesitant because the monk fruit can have a bad after taste but this recipe was perfect and loved the hint of strawberry. Delicious!

  4. I made a double batch and did strawberries and rhubarb and they are delish 💗. The lemon flavoring gives it a wonderful fresh flavor. Will definitely be making these again!

    1. HI Jeff…probably won’t be wise to sub out the coconut milk with almond milk since the fat content is so different. Thanks for the question. Happy eating friend.
