I made these low carb lemon blueberry muffin recipe for an essential oils class I had at my house and they got rave reviews. I recorded a discovering essential oils class here on You Tube in case you were not able to attend. Feel free to email me if you have questions about essentials oils here.
This recipe is a slight variation from my good friend’s book Practical Paleo which is the perfect book for starting on a Paleo plan and it answers all your questions. I used essential oils in my recipe but if you don’t have that you can use lemon zest and lemon juice. I also used a low carb sweetener because my husband has been doing low carb for several months and he is doing so well. I like to support him by making things he likes so he can have an occasional treat. This is the plan he is following here.
These are the perfect muffins to take on a road trip or to a friend because they are low in sugar and full of fat and protien from coconut oil and eggs. Lemon essential oil naturally supports the immune system and the smell bring sunshine to room.
