A low carb and gluten free blueberry muffin recipe with a crunchy streusel topping and lemon flavored icing.


For the muffins:

    • 6 Tbsp butter
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar substitute
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 cup almond flour
    • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
    • pinch of salt
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
    • 1/3 cup almond milk
    • 1/2 cup blueberries

For the streusel topping:

    • 2 Tbsp butter
    • 1/2 cup almond flour
    • 1 1/2 Tbsp granulated sugar substitute
    • 1 tsp lemon zest
    • 1 Tbsp coconut flour

For the icing:

  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar substitute


For the muffins:

    • Cream the butter and sweetener together until smooth. Add the eggs, beating well after each. Add the vanilla extract and mix well. Combine the almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking powder, and xanthan gum in a medium bowl. Add to the wet ingredients and mix well. Pour in the almond milk and blend until smooth. Stir in blueberries. Divide the batter between 6 greased muffin tins.

For the streusel topping:

    • Melt the butter and add the rest of the streusel ingredients. Stir until a dough forms. Using your fingers, crumble the streusel over the tops of the muffin batter.
    • Bake the muffins at 375 degrees for about 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool.

For the cream cheese icing:

  • Whip the softened cream cheese with the splenda and lemon juice until smooth. Spoon into a ziploc bag and cut off the very tip with scissors. Squeeze the icing over the cooled muffins and serve.
