One criticism I hear from people who are new to this way of eating is that keto breakfasts seem to rely mostly eggs and bacon.

I totally understand where those folks are coming from. If you browse social media hashtags, you’ll see a plethora of photos containing bacon and eggs.

While those foods are delicious and warmly welcomed, there are many other foods you can enjoy at your breakfast table, like these keto lemon poppyseed muffins!

Low carb muffins are a great choice for a keto breakfast because they keep you full and give you a burst of energy in the morning. Since these keto lemon poppyseed muffins aren’t full of sugar and grains, you don’t have to worry about still feeling hungry after eating them. 

In fact, they’re a great option to send with your littles on their way to the bus stop. This high fat breakfast will stimulate their brain better than a bowl of cereal ever could!

Making Keto Lemon Poppyseed Muffins At Home

This low carb muffin recipe couldn’t be any easier to make. One bowl and one whisk is really all you need to prep these scrumptious keto lemon poppyseed muffins!

Here’s what you need:

  • One large mixing bowl
  • One whisk or hand mixer (preferred)
  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • Muffin tin (6, 12 or 24 cup)

You simply need to combine everything together in your mixing bowl, pour into your muffin tin, and bake!

When mixing your batter, make sure to whisk it until the batter smooth and slightly runny. You want to whisk out all lumps for better baking. For best results, a hand mixer or stand mixer is recommended.

 

 

Serving and Storing Your Keto Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Don’t be worried about eating all twelve muffins in one sitting! These easy keto muffins can easily be frozen and reheated. All you need to do is wrap them tightly in plastic wrap so they don’t get freezer burnt and store them in a big ziplock bag or storage container.

Pull one out as desired, pop into the microwave for about 30 seconds, and you have a delicious keto muffin ready to eat! 

Whether you want breakfast, a snack, or afternoon coffee, these keto muffins are great any time of day.

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Sour cream– I used sour cream in this recipe to keep the muffins moist and provide enough fat for a tasty muffin. Also, the tang of the sour cream works better with the tang of the lemons here. I would not advise replacing the sour cream with butter or you will end up with a more cake tasting muffin (not a bad thing but not what we’re trying to achieve). You could use mayonnaise in a pinch.
  • Lemon juice– Fresh lemon juice or lemon extract are both fine in this recipe. When originally written, I used lemon extract  and they turned out beautifully. When updating the recipe at a later date, I opted to use fresh lemon juice and zest for a fresher flavor but both will work. Just be aware that when you use lemon extract, you need significantly less because it is so much more concentrated.
  • Sweeteners: you can use whichever brand of zero carb sweetener you prefer. Personally, I use this in all of my recipes and prefer it because there isn’t a cooling effect with every bite.

  • Zest of 1 lemon (optional but recommended)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a muffin pan with liners or grease with cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl of a mixer, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sweetener with a hand mixer to remove any lumps.
  3. Add the eggs, sour cream, vanilla extract, lemon juice and zest, and poppyseeds and beat until well combined.

  • I am allergic to nuts. Can i use all coconut flour? Do you have any information about swapping almond flour with coconut flour and is there another flour that can vibe used? Thank you

    • No, coconut flour is not an equivalent substitute. Coconut four and almond flour are extremely different and you cannot sub one for the other in any recipe because of the way they behave. If you’re not allergic to hazelnuts, hazelnut flour is a good substitute but it does have a nuttier flavor.

  • I made these muffins and they are delicious! Great texture and flavor. I added lemon zest but still wish they were a little more lemony at I might add more lemon extract or juice next time.

  • I just made these. So easy and quick to whip up! Of course I couldn’t wait to eat one before they were cooled off! I love these and the taste is pretty spot on! I will definitely be making these again! Great recipe

  • Love lemon poppyseed muffins! I’m starting keto in February. I noticed that one of the photos above shows an iced muffin and a bowl of icing. Do you have recipe for the icing? Thank you!

  • Do you mind giving the recipe for the glaze you put on top of these in the pictures? I’d love to make some as well! :o)

  • I have made keto lemon poppy muffins before but the sugar substitute I used had the cooling effect I hate. Which did you find better ? I now can not remember which I used that I didn’t like.
