Low Carb Blueberry Flax Breakfast Muffins

Blueberry Flax Mini Muffins (Low Carb, Paleo, Grain Free, Gluten Free)

Need A Healthy & Convenient Breakfast or Snack Idea?

I’ve got you covered!  These Blueberry Flax Mini Muffins are absolutely mouth-watering and are a delicious way to stay healthy on-the-go.

Y’all know I’m all about packing in the most nutrients as possible when prepping recipes.  And, this one does not disappoint.

The combination of coconut flour and ground flax seeds gives you a power-house of nutrients and (especially) fiber.

One serving (4 mini muffins) contains about 11g of fiber!! That’s 1/3 of your necessary daily intake of fiber.

So, I suggest indulging in these little minis guilt-free.  I know I did!!

  1. Thanks for the recipe! I made them and forgot the sweetener but they still tasted great! I added 3T of hemp seeds and quite a bit of water. I also substituted coconut oil instead of ghee. Thanks for sharing!

     
  2. HI – What is the nutritional info on these? carbs? cal? just the basics! thanks!

      1 serving of 4 Mini Muffins (or 2 regular sized muffins) = approximately 335 cals, 8.5g pro, 16g fiber

       
  3. Hello how many grams of fat, and carbs are these?

     
    • Kayla Chandler

      Hey Janeth! For 4 mini muffins or 2 reg size muffins… it’s approximately: 335 cals, 8.5g pro, 16g fiber

       
  4. Can you use frozen blueberries?

    How many crabs, you still haven’t given this info

      Hey Janice… sorry you were asking how many carbs (my fault)… Here’s the info.. hope it helps πŸ™‚ Regarding the carb content.. Since xylitol contains 0g net effective carbs per serving, we will not be counting it towards the carbs count, only the calorie count. In a quick (& interesting) comparison, sugar has a GI of 100 while xylitol has a GI of only 7, which is why it’s so good for low carb diets and diabetics.

      Having said that, the carb count per serving (4 mini muffins or 2 regular sized) is approximately 16.5g carbs and 6.5g net carbs Hope this helps πŸ™‚

       
  6. In reading the posts which ask the carb content I still do not see anything that states the carb content of these muffins. You have listed the calories, 335, the protein 8.5g, and 16g of fiber..how do I find the actual carbohydrate content? Thank you! I love your site and recipes!

  7. Looks like a good recipe. I see nutritional info for protein, calories, and fiber…. No carb count?

  8. I made these yesterday and we loved them. My kids gobbled them up so fast! We made a double batch today with peaches (since theyre in season right now) Theyre in the oven now and smell fantastic! We can’t wait for them to finish baking. Probably the best thing I’ve found on Pinterest to date.

      Hey Jessica! I’m so glad y’all liked the muffins… the peaches sound super delish!! I’ll have to give the peach version a try πŸ™‚

       
  9. I just made a batch. The flavor is great but my muffins are very crumbly. What did I do wrong? Should I add an extra egg or more almond milk next time?

     
    • Kayla Chandler

      Hey Donna! You could add another egg. If the texture is too dry after adding another egg, you could also add a bit more butter/ghee or whatever fat you’re using or more coconut milk.

       
  10. Could I use almond flour instead of coconut flour?

     
  11. Is the recipe written anywhere? I thought I remembered it was but trying to make these a second time and only see the video.
