Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

****** 4/14 Updated Recipe *******

Remaking my Keto Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin has been on my to do list for quite a while.  

The last one was a bit too "lemony"!  I mean, they are lemon muffins, but still.....  A little lemon goes a long way!

So, off I went to refactor the recipe to take it from an 8 to a 10!  And that I did!

Keto Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

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!  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 in a keto lemon poppy seed muffin?

That all depends on the recipe! For these keto muffins, there is only 1 net carb per muffin!  Crazy, right?  I'll take 3!

How long do keto lemon poppy seed muffins last?

I don't keep these on my counter longer than a day or two.  If they haven't been eaten by then (rare), I move them to the fridge!


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!  

Anyway, poppy seeds do not have a strong flavor, which I like and are a source of calcium and magnesium!


As you probably know, Lakanto Monkfruit and Erythritol are my two favorite sweeteners.  

I chose to use erythritol 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 along with liquid stevia as they both compliment each other and remove any possible after taste!

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 you the juice too!

Hand Beaters - Most the mixing can be done with a spatula but I like to end with 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 clean up so much easier!
