Keto blueberry cupcakes are baked with coconut flour and filled with a blueberry chia jam. Topped with a blueberry cream cheese topping these make a colourful low carb and gluten free cupcake.
Coconut flour makes a moist and light cupcake and the blueberry filling is a delightful surprise with these low carb cupcakes. No cupcake is complete without a creamy topping and these have more blueberry flavour on top!
Are blueberries low carb?
Berries are a great low carb fruit and although blueberries are not the lowest of carbs in the berry family try not to consumer more than ½ a cup. As this recipe uses blueberry chia jam, the carbs have not built up too much.
How to make keto blueberry cupcakes
The vanilla cupcakes with coconut flour are good enough to eat by themselves if you wanted to skip the blueberry mixture!
For the low carb sweetener, I've used allulose from Besti as I find that it does not leave any aftertaste one the cupcakes are cooled. Cupcakes can be a delicate bake and you don't want the icy aftertaste that some brands of erythritol can give. Feel free to you your favourite low carb sweetener.
