Low-Carb Cheesy Cranberry Lemon Muffins

Low-Carb Cheesy Cranberry Lemon Muffins
Low-Carb Cheesy Cranberry Muffins – Sugar Free & Keto Friendly
I’ll admit I have a new found love for cranberries. This low sugar fruit is great for Low Carb Diets! These bright red beauties are not just for the Holidays either. I’m not talking about the dried cranberries you buy in a package that have tons of sugar added. Fresh raw cranberries have a tangy tart bite that pairs perfectly with a sweet cake like our Cranberry Pound Cake with Lemon glaze. 
 I added some lemon zest and lemon stevia to make these moist muffins truly sing! The zest is optional if you don’t care for the extra lemon flavor, you can omit. However, they wouldn’t be as good....lol. If your not a lemon lover, simply substitute Plain Liquid Stevia for the Lemon Stevia and omit the zest.
These sugar free muffins are made with cream cheese and sour cream which make them extra cheesy. This is not your typical Keto Muffin. I consider them more of a dessert but (shh...don’t tell anyone) I’ve had them for breakfast too. 

I haven't tried any other berries but I’m sure blueberries would be equally delicious. Comment below if you try them or make any other substitutions...thanks!

  1.  Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare 12 muffin cups or use silicone cups for easiest release.

  9. Bake for 25 min. on the middle rack. Muffins should be done but test by inserting a toothpick in the middle. If toothpick comes out clean,they are done.
