What are the health benefits of blueberries?

What can I use instead of monkfruit sweetener in keto blueberry muffins?
You can use any low carb or sugar free maple flavored syrup in this keto blueberry muffin recipe in place of the monk fruit syrup.
Just note that the flavor will be slightly different. We have not tried making these low carb muffins with liquid stevia, or any other drop sweetener.
Working with almond flour in keto blueberry muffins
This low carb blueberry muffin recipe was developed using almond flour. One thing to note about using almond flour is that it is NOT a 1-to-1 for other flours or coconut flour.
It has a lot more protein and fat, and less starch, so it reacts differently in recipes.
It’s best stored in the refrigerator or freezer if you’re not going to use it up in a week or two.
Always bring Almond meal or flour to room temperature before baking almond flour blueberry muffins with it. If you use it cold, it’ll absorb more of the liquid and your batter will be thicker than it should be.
And remember, because it’s made from almonds, it can go rancid, so keep track of when you opened the bag.

Can I use an egg replacer in keto blueberry muffins?
We haven’t tried using an egg replacer in this keto blueberry muffin recipe because of the amount of eggs that it calls for.
We have had others comment on similar recipes that chia egg and flax egg worked well, but these blueberry muffins didn’t rise as much.

Both fine ground almond meal and blanched almond flour work in this low carb blueberry muffins recipe. The blanched almond flour gives a more tender crumb in these keto blueberry muffins.
