Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Low carb, keto and paleo! Note: You may use Stevia or a Monk Fruit sweetener like Lankanto for this recipe. If using Lankanto use a 1/4 cup. Stevia brands vary in sweetness, most have conversion charts online. This recipe uses enough stevia to sub out 1/4 cup sugar. How much you use will depend on brand and whether you use liquid or powder. Use the conversion chart for your brand. The brand I use converts 1/4 cup sugar to 1/2 Tablespoon stevia powder.
