With less than 2 net carbs per serving, you are going to love these keto poppy seed muffins! The muffins are moist and the texture is just right.
It really isn’t too often that I prepare a low carb / keto baked treat. The keto baked goods out there can be hit or miss and until recently, there hasn’t been a keto approved sweetener that really agrees with me.
Who doesn’t love anything with poppy seed? Since I started using the KetoseSweet+ sweetener, I can finally enjoy some delicious baked goods without feeling gross like some sweeteners make me feel. These keto poppy seed muffins are really moist and have a delicate texture. This recipe is definitely a keeper. You can switch out the vanilla extract for almond extract or even lemon extract and make some delicious poppy seed muffins.

In this recipe, I used lupin flour. Lupin is a legume similar to a peanut, and the flour is very low in net carbs. The lupin flour can be switched with coconut flour if you prefer. The amount used will be the same. I like the lupin flour because once baked, it doesn’t have any distinct flavor like the coconut flour does. That being said, if you have peanut allergies, it’s suggested that you use caution with lupin flour.
This recipe makes 18 muffins. I used the silicone muffin tray that I use all the time for my egg bites. There is no need to grease it and the muffins (and egg bites) just slide out. I feel like the muffin cups are a bit shallower than a traditional muffin tin is, so take that into consideration when making the keto poppy seed muffins.
