Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins

I decided to try a new low carb sugar-free muffin recipe this week. They started out being blueberry, but decided to go a different direction about half way through the recipe when Faith said she wanted chocolate.

These were very easy and came together quickly. Like I said I altered the recipe at the last-minute to make them chocolate chip muffins instead of blueberry. Which was very simple, I just decided not to add lemon juice and blueberries.

Here we go….

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter either a mini muffin pan or a regular sized muffin tin, which every you prefer. I used mini at the last-minute, I thought they would be cute and more fun to eat!!

  1. Round up all your ingredients
  2. In a medium bowl mix together wet ingredients and then in a larger bowl mix together dry ingredients, don’t add your chocolate chips or berries until the end.
  3. Add wet ingredients mixture to the dry ingredients slowly. Mix until well combined.
  4. Once well combined, add in chocolate chips or berries.

INGREDIENTS

IMG_6652

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar or sugar substitute (I used Monkfruit) Splenda or Truvia would work great too
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted (I used unsalted)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar-free chocolate chips

If you want to do blueberries I would suggest adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice ( which is why you see the lemon juice in my above photo!!) and then 1 cup of frozen blueberries, if you use fresh berries just be careful not to smash them while folding them into the batter.

Scoop the batter in muffin pan and bake for 18-25 minutes (depends on size of muffins). For the mini muffins I baked for 18 minutes. For larger muffins, bake for 20-25 minutes.

 


Perfect Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake

So I had indicated a few weeks ago that I had been experimenting with mug cakes. Well I didn’t invent this one….but it is so delicious and easy that I had to share it. This comes from a low carb/low sugar website that I love to check out, All Day I Dream About Food. I really love to check her out several times a day. This may be the first recipe of hers though that I have made. I promise it is so easy and yummy, you may make it every day for awhile. This took me about 5 minutes to whip up! From start to finish!!!

I will admit that I made it a bit differently than she did on her website, but it still worked out perfectly. I took everything and mixed it all up in one bowl. I decided if I was going to make this it was going to be a one mixing bowl kind of thing. I wasn’t going to dirty up two separate bowls just to make mug cakes.
