Minimum carb lemon muffins

When I’m on a diet, sometimes I miss a real cake that will replace an unhealthy version. I was trying out a variety of alternative flours and I found almond flour as a perfect alternative to regular flour. I like lemon cake, but I was on ketogenic diet, so I thought it would be great to make low carb, sugarless version of that cake. This is how these muffins were created. They are awesome and can be ready in 35 minutes.
