Low-Carb Blueberry Muffins

From: EatingWell.com, December 2018

Just because you're watching carbs doesn't mean you can't have the classic breakfast pastry. In place of all-purpose flour, nutty almond and coconut flours make these muffins fluffy while slashing carbs. A bit of brown sugar blunts the tartness of fresh blueberries. Make these ahead for a grab-and-go breakfast for the week.

  • 1¾ cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Sift almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl. Add blueberries and toss to coat. Whisk eggs, milk, brown sugar, oil and vanilla in a medium bowl. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Divide the batter among the muffin cups (about ¼ cup batter per cup).
  3. Bake the muffins until lightly browned around the edges and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Run a knife around the edges and remove from the tin to cool completely.
  • To make ahead: Wrap airtight and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

This is the first item I made with almond flower that the whole family enjoyed. Instead of using brown sugar, I used brown sugar alternative (Splenda)

We aren’t doing Keto so the carbs in these recipe didn’t stop me. I don’t make many muffins because of all the sugar, but this recipe looked interesting enough to give it a try. Generously greasing the muffin pan is important! The muffins with the most blueberries at the bottom wanted to come apart and were harder to lift out of the pan. I would do less blueberries next time or even add them by hand through the batter once the cups are filled. But the flavor is delicious! I plan on having them for an afternoon snack or light desert. I am not sorry at all for trying them.
