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.

queen: Probably a good idea to start a topic asking about it. Generally, I think they want you to use the whole grains rather than something made from brown rice flour, but maybe there's more to know about it.

marmee: One question: if I have early morning coffee with coconut oil ( or if I choose cream) are they considered a snack, should I wait 3 hours before eating? If I eat an S meal soon there after am I ok? Would that be a problem if I eat an E meal soon after?

queen: You can post here if you like. But you can start a post by entering a forum (any of the linked titles above this shouting box). Once you are in the forum, you should see a "Create Thread" link in the title bar. Click that to get a posting screen.

queen: If you eat an S meal within an hour of your oil/cream coffee, it is all considered the same meal. Otherwise, you need to wait the 3 hours.

queen: If you are in weight loss mode, you avoid them. Maybe throw in one or two a month if you aren't losing well. It can help to shake things up and get losses started again.
