One thing I love about the new year is that it is new. Fresh. Kinda like these keto lemon poppyseed muffins. 😉 We get to wipe the slate clean and start over, if need be. Maybe you just started keto a few days ago and this is going to be YOUR YEAR. Maybe you dabbled in the keto/low-carb world last year but now you’re ready to fully commit. 

Wherever you are in your keto journey, I’m rooting for you! I’m cheering you on so hard that I made these keto lemon poppyseed muffins just for you! One complaint I hear from people about keto is that all breakfasts seem to be eggs and bacon. Trust me, there is MUCH more you can have than eggs and bacon for breakfast on keto!

I totally understand where those folks are coming from though. Some days you want a sweet breakfast. Other days you want something to grab and go. And then there’s the mid-afternoon coffee treat pairs perfectly with muffins.

I will admit, when I made these muffins I ate them at every meal. My kids did too! They actually tried taking one while I was photographing…at least it made for a cute pic!

The kiddos have been pesky eaters lately. I blame it on all the crap they ate through the holidays. Their tastebuds have to readjust to sugar-free foods. But even my little hoodlums devoured these keto muffins!

Actually, that brings me to a bit of wisdom if you’re new to this way of eating…don’t take “just a bite” of cake at a birthday party. Don’t “just try” your spouse’s dessert at dinner or “have 1 piece” so as not to offend your mother in law.

Sugar is not only addicting, it’s good and your brain knows that! Taking “just one bite” can lead you down a rabbit hole fast. Trust me, I’ve been there! If you’re brand spankin’ new to the keto lifestyle, it’s not even a bad idea to wait a few weeks before trying low carb treats. Wean yourself totally off sugar. Forget what sweet tastes like before your first taste of low carb sweeteners. 

Have you ever given up Coke for a period of time, say Lenten, and then when you finally take a sip of it again it makes you make the 😝 face because it’s so sweet? Well, when you quit eating sugary foods, you’re going to have the same reaction.

There are some fantastic low carb sweeteners out there (I’ll link some of my favorites below) that won’t spike your blood sugar, make you gain weight, or mess with your mental health.

Can you cheat on keto?

This recipe is incredibly easy to bake. Even the most novice of bakers can whip these together without fail! If you’re feeling a little extra, you can add some lemon zest to the batter but it is not necessary. Either way, these Keto Lemon Poppyseed muffins are a fresh way to start the day!

  • 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)
