These Keto Strawberry Lemon Muffins are the perfect healthy breakfast, dessert or even snack option. Each muffin only has 5 NET carbs and are also Keto, Paleo, Gluten and Dairy Free. 

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.
  4. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove the muffins from the oven and transfer to a rack and allow to cool in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes.

  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. Kenzie says:

    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. Ashley McCrary says:

      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. Sara says:

    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.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I’m so happy to hear this. Thank you!!!

  3. Danielle says:

    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!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      So happy to hear this! Thank you

  4. Julie says:

    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. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thank you so much Julie.

  5. Jeff says:

    Can you sub almond milk for coconut milk?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      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.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
