Keto Lemon Pound Cake Muffins with Lemon GlazeWith just a few simple ingredients, indulge on these homemade Keto lemon pound cake muffins. With just the right amount of zest and the sweetness of the glaze, so good!
If you are a lemon lover, you are going to love these keto lemon muffins. They are bursting with lemon flavor and so easy to make!
Just like with all of my muffin recipes, these only require a handful of ingredients, minimal prep, and they store so easily in the fridge or freezer.
It is a simple procedure of mix and bake.
I use a muffin tin with liners and I always spray the inside of the liners with cooking spray to insure they do not stick.

Keto Lemon Pound Cake Muffins with Lemon Glaze
For the cake:
- 2 ½ Cups Almond flour
- 1 teaspoon Baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon Kosher salt
- ½ Cup Granular Sweetener (I use Swerve)
- 3 Large Eggs, beaten
- 7 Ounces Plain Greek yogurt
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
- ¼ Cup Lemon Juice
- Zest of 1 lemon
- ⅔ Cup Powdered Sweetener
- ¼ Cup Lemon Juice
- Preheat the oven to 400F. line a muffin tin with 12 liners and spray with cooking spray
- In a large mixing bowl combine the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and sweetener. Now stir in the eggs, greek yogurt, vanilla extract, lemon juice and zest.
- Divide the batter between the muffin cups and bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool before topping with glaze.
- Combine all your ingredients for glaze into a small mixing bowl. Once nice and smooth, use a spoon and glaze the top of the muffins
- I use Fage 2% plain Greek yogurt which is 5 net carbs for 1 cup

Delicious! I made these in a jumbo muffin pan ( 6 instead of standard 12) as I only had jumbo paper liners at the time. But it was difficult to eat only a half because they were so good! Baked at 350 for 27 minutes. My husband said it’s a keeper…keeper, do it again.Love your recipes and clear instructions.
I made these muffins this morning for Easter. They are scrumptious!
Be sure and make the lemon icing, it puts them over the top!
Thanks so much for the delicious recipe.
Can you use sour cream instead of Greek yogurt?
yes, but it is actually the same carbs.

Why are there so many calories ? This recipe is very similar to your other muffin recipes, which I love! But it seems the only difference is the lemon juice, and yogurt is 7 ounces, where other muffin recipes are 8 ounces. So should be less than your other muffin recipes. What am I missing?
These set up perfectly! They looked like regular cupcakes full of sugar and gluten - but the taste was so good! Loved the glaze! A friend asked for these instead of a birthday cake. Yum!

I am on a muffin mission. I have made the blueberry several times and the chocolate chip. Both are delicious. This is next. I wonder how this recipe would be if you added blueberries?
I added blueberries to her coffee cake muffins. It was really good. I will probably try it in half of this recipe when I make it.

Hi Jennifer, I would love to know the nutrition facts without the icing? These are delicious by the way.
The icing doesn't have much nutritional value since the sweetener is zero net carbs.

These cupcakes are so soft and delicate. Very tasty. Love them!! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
These lemon muffins are Delicious! I am surprised about the texture, much like non keto! My family loves them too. One of my Favorites! Thanks Jennifer!
These are delicious! Mine seemed to not rise as much as normal muffins (maybe my baking soda is old?) but they still tasted wonderful.. I will definitely make these again soon!
This is a wonderful recipe. At first, I thought they weren't going to be very good because I tried them warm and they had a strange texture. Once they were cool, they were very good. Nice lemon flavor.
These sound great..I am interested in keto was of cooking..thank you so much hun.
