Maple Spice Muffins
Low Carbohydrate Recipe
These are really good with their maple and spice flavor, and have lots of fiber. About 4 carbs per muffin but over 3 carbs fiber. The following recipe has a texture like 'real' bread or muffins.
6 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup sweetener (such as Stevia)
1 tablespoon pure maple extract
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup Organic Flaxseed Meal
1/4 cup soy flour
4 ounces chopped walnuts (Optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat first 3 ingredients together, then add Splenda, maple and vanilla. Mix the cinnamon and remaining ingredients and add to above. Put into 12 paper cupcake liners in a muffin tin, or pan. Spray/oil, and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes.
This recipe doubles well to get about 18 to 20 good size muffins, filling the muffin cups about 3/4 full. Can fill the muffin tins to the top and get about 9 larger muffins.
Try Black Walnuts
Black walnuts, if you can get them, list 4 grams carbs but 2 grams fiber for the 4 oz. Might we recommend Hammons Large Black Walnuts? They are 100 percent wild; hand-harvested with a bold, rich flavor. Ideal for baking!
