Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Ah, the keto Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin - where do I even begin? This isn't just another keto recipe to add to your ever-growing list. No, my friends, this is a game changer, a true revolution in the world of keto baking. Imagine, if you will, the perfect blend of tangy lemon zest and crunchy poppy seeds wrapped up in a moist, fluffy muffin that just so happens to be keto-friendly. Sounds like a dream, right? Well, pinch yourself, because it's real, and it's spectacular.

What truly makes these muffins stand out in the crowded world of treats is the lemon. It's not just a hint or a whisper of lemon; it's a full-on lemony extravaganza. Each bite bursts with the zest and juice of real lemons, providing that vibrant, citrusy aroma that makes your mouth water and your heart sing. And then, when you think it can't get any better, you hit the poppy seeds - that tiny crunch, that subtle nuttiness. It's the culinary equivalent of a mic drop.

Sometimes, eggs just get boring for breakfast.  I like to throw in muffins, coffee cakes and other fun breakfast loaves!  Check out this blueberry crumb loaf or this keto blueberry bread!  A great way to switch up your breakfast and get in some berries too.  Between that and these keto lemon poppy seed muffins - you may not ever go back to eggs.

How many carbs are in a keto lemon poppy seed muffin?

For these keto muffins, there is only 1 net carb per muffin!  They are perfectly keto, low carb and gluten free.

How long do keto lemon poppy seed muffins last?

Keto lemon poppy seed muffins should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge. They will last for about 3-4 days. But I'm sure they will be eaten up long before that.


Lemon - As I already said above, I tamed the lemon flavor a bit in this recipe.  It has the perfect lemon flavor without causing your cheeks to pucker or your eyes to water!  Which sometimes can be fun and other times not.  And if you absolutely love lemon treats, be sure to look at this lovely lemon keto pound cake!

Poppy Seed - I don't eat poppy seeds very often.  But when I do, I like to eat them with a lemon flavor. 

I feel like that should be a meme!  


As you probably know, Besti Allulose is my favorite sweetener. I chose to use allulose for this recipe, along with a few drops of liquid stevia. 

Some people find keto sweeteners have an aftertaste.  I find this to be true sometimes and other times not.  I like to use erythritol (and sometimes allulose) along with liquid stevia as they both complement each other and remove any possible aftertaste!

Kitchen Essentials

Lemon Zester and Juicer - I like a tool that will do both!  This recipe is extra special when you use fresh lemon juice.  And, if you are going to have to zest a lemon, you might as well use the juice too!

Hand Beaters - Most of the mixing can be done with a spatula but I like to end with a hand beater.

Muffin Tins - You will definitely need muffin tins.  Trust me, I've tried filling muffin liners with the holder and it simply does not work!

Muffin Liners - These make cleanup so much easier!

  1. I am also T1D (49 years last week!) and I’ve been doing the keto diet since this past February. To date, I’ve lost just over 50 pounds and I’m so full of energy and my blood glucose levels have stabilized to the point where I’m only taking 12u Toujeo at bedtime (until keto diet, I was taking 60u Toujeo + upwards of 20u Humalog after every meal).
    This recipe is so yummy! I plan on making more of your delicious recipes this weekend! Thank you!
