If you have almond flour on hand, these muffins are so easy and quick. Great for a breakfast or snack. They easily adapt to flavors also. I made three different kinds here - blueberry and lemon, almond poppyseed, and plain. All in just a few minutes too. It mixes together so fast. The recipe makes 4 muffins, so I just did 3 batches to fill a regular sized muffin tin. They're more expensive than the Muffin In A Mug recipe from THM, or the other flax muffins in the book, but they're tasty, easy, and have a great texture. This is my preferred recipe for a low-carb muffin.
Ingredients: almond flour (blanched is best), eggs, stevia, baking soda, apple cider vinegar
Mix together 2 eggs, 1 Tbsp Truvia (or a few shakes of nustevia extract powder) and 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar. Add 1 cup of almond flour and 1/4 tsp baking soda. Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes, or until slightly browned on the edges. Cool in the pan for 1/2 an hour. Makes 4 muffins.
You can easily add flavors to this. Try adding frozen blueberries, and opt. lemon juice/ lemon zest/ lemon extract. Poppyseed and lemon/almond extract is one of my favorites. You could add cinnamon, and even sprinkle cinnamon and truvia on top of them for a treat. You could also add chopped nuts and banana extract. Try whatever flavors you like! I'll bet they would be great as ginger lemon muffins to accompany a soup. Let me know if you try any other great flavors!
These look great!! I think I will try some with ginger as I just found out I am preggie and get VERY sick, ALL day, for about the first 1/2 of my pregnancies. I have never found a way that I can try ginger seeing as I can not take pills during my sick months, as it just comes back (if I can even get it down).

Emily, all your food is so pretty. I might give these a try after we figute out if Levi is reacting to almonds. I think I will try to figure out a lemon berry flavor. That's a favorite of for the hubby.

tinac: 2yorkiemama- I know that amount would still be FP. Only one tbsp should be around 1.5 fat and less than 1 carb. I was advised by Pearl I could have that amount on S or E days and be okay. I would be careful to not go over fat or carbs on your breakfast

2yorkiemama: tinac and steffanie3 - thanks very much! I really appreciate your time! I in day 4 of FP and seems to be going well. I am so used to eating fat, this couple of days is harder. I'm not a carb girl, really. It's hard for me to think it's ok. EEK!

donawyo: Hello. May we have mayonnaise on S days of a Fuel Cycle?

steffanie3: Off the top of my head donawyo, I wouldn't, unless it is a homemade. I came away from that chapter really focusing on superfoods that week, so homemade with some great deep S fats would work
