Keto//Gluten Free Lemon Poppyseed Muffin
Muffins are such a good little snack to have around. I usually make a batch and freeze them individually so I can thaw them out as needed during the week. I like to pack lots of fiber in them and everyone around here loves these! The lemon poppyseed version is definitely a favorite on the lunch boxes.
For these ones I like to use a mixture of almond flour, golden flaxseed and a touch of psyllium husk powder. Make sure the golden flaxseed meal and the psyllium husk powder are finely ground ( I always regrind mine ) as this will assure better texture. I like to use a blander to make muffins and it couldn't be any quicker or easier! You just put it all together in a blander and done. No time, no mess and yummy treats in the end.
How pretty are they? But to make them even prettier and more delicious I top them with a lemon glaze. They just become even more irresistible. A powdered sweetener is needed to make the glaze, and because we are a little sensitive to the cooling sensation of erythritol based sweeteners, I used a mixture of powdered Allulose and stevia ( liquid Stevia works fine since we only need a couple of drops)
Also, I have noticed the texture of these tend to get even better the next day! Or several hours after cooling. But you can also certainly enjoy them right away like I usually do.
