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.

Oh, my goodness. Made these this afternoon (with cocoa, coconut extract, cinnamon, tad coconut oil) and mmmmmmm! Don't judge me - I ate three in a row. Thank you thank you! Excited to try the recipe with other variations, too!
asensenig: Ezekiel Mix: 12 cups Barley; 12 cups Rye or Spelt; 4 cups dry lentils; 4 cups millet; 4 cups dry pinto beans; 3 cups dry soy beans. Another question. Can rye berries be used without sprouting?

steffanie3: I was thinking you meant the store bought Ezekiel which is sprouted. This recipe would not be on plan with the honey.

asensenig: ok. if you substituted another sweetner for the honey, would it be ok?

aecmama: hello! just started the plan and wondering about the Chobani 100 yogurt that is sweetened with stevia and also monkfruit extract (both of which I have already in the house!) Anyone know anything? I've spent awhile searching. Are either of these on plan?
Apr 16, 2014 11:56:59 GMT -5
steffanie3: Can you list the ingredients aecmama?

steffanie3: Cane juice is sugar and is not on plan, sorry.
Apr 16, 2014 16:01:42 GMT -5
steffanie3: Are the grains and beans sprouted asensening?
Apr 16, 2014 16:04:42 GMT -5
aecmama: any thoughts about monkfruit extract as a sweetener?
Apr 16, 2014 16:05:09 GMT -5
steffanie3: "At this time, there is not an official recommendation to use monk fruit, but the early research on monk fruit extract is encouraging." The THM ladies are still researching it. If it were me I would use up what you have then get a stevia extract
