Low Carb Muffins

Gluten FreeLow Carb

These Low Carb Muffins have become a staple in our house. I have reached the point that I must reduce the amount of carbs in my life. Hard to do for this self-proclaimed carbaholic! I never realized that sugar was so evil and that fat was not the cause of unwanted weight gain. Fat might not be great for us either but sugar is definitely not! So I make the muffins…and I don’t feel one bit cheated out of eating my usual cereal in the morning.

The most interesting thing I have found is that if I eat a muffin for breakfast I feel full and not hungry for three hours or so until lunch. If I eat cereal for breakfast I am feeling hungry in about an hour and a half. Finally, the blood sugar dropping thing the experts talk about makes sense – I feel the difference in my body. As much as I love these Mini-Blueberry Coffee Cakes they are going to be packed with carbs. These Healthy Chocolate Waffles might be a good option for the family!

These low carb muffins are really moist. After they cool to room temperature, I store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. A few seconds in the microwave warms them up quickly to eat on the go!

As I said, this is also a great gluten free muffin recipe. Below you can see I have also added chopped pecans. My husband does love the added nuts…I have to admit they do taste good.

  1. These look deliciously healthy! I’m a carb watcher, so you really got me!! Thanks for sharing on the What’s for Dinner link up and don’t forget to leave a comment at the party – Next week’s features that also leave a comment get pinned and tweeted!

  2. Thanks for sharing on Family Joy Blog Link-up. Please come back and join us again! I would probably benefit from these, cutting carbs helps cut weight too. I like muffins for an easy breakfast.

  3. These look so amazing! I love using almond flour for baking and will definitely try these. Thanks for sharing, and have a great week! 🙂

    1. Hi Betty, I had a reader put the recipe into My Fitness Pal. It says each muffin has 19.2 carbs and 206 calories. I love them too and eat one every morning! Enjoy!

  4. Sorry to be the bummer but honey isn’t low carb. It’s just like using regular sugar. It just adds that wonderful honey flavor. I’m going to use liquid stevia, maybe English toffee flavored. It would be nice to know the net carbs per serving. It would be difficult to eat just one. Thanks for the recipe. I’ve been looking for a short prep/cook time apple muffin.

  5. Great recipe! I did tweak it a bit to suit me but it turned out fine! I used homemade crabapple sauce sweetened with honey and coconut sugar. I also used 1/4 cup xylitol to give extra sweetness. Because my applesauce was very thick, I also added 1 Tbsp avocado oil. I also upped the flavor with about 1/4 tsp cloves and 1/8 tsp nutmeg. Next batch I will be using unsweetened homemade crabapple sauce so will try adding some diced apples to the mix as well as some xylitol.

  6. I just made these and they are wonderful and a perfect breakfast on the go option for me but I am needing the nutritional information so I can add it into My Fitness Pal

    I enjoy baking with almond flour even though I’m not on a gluten-free diet. The flavor of these muffins is very good. Thanks for the recipe.

    I made these and they are too moist….they fall apart. I even cooked them a few extra minutes.
    Also, I don’t each much sugar so these were really sweet…if I make them again I might leave out the honey.
    If they didn’t crumble I would spread some peanut butter on them…yum.
    Question: what do you eat with them?

    1. Hi Deb! It is possible that your oven does not cook at the same temperature as mine. Possibly they do need to cook longer in your oven. Because these muffins do not use any flour, and are made with almonds, they will not be as solid as a flour based muffin. I often eat them with a spoon. I don’t eat them with anything…one muffin is my breakfast each day with a cup of tea.

      Also, to make them a little less moist you could add a little less applesauce. And feel free to reduce the amount of honey to your taste.

      Peanut butter sounds like a great add. Maybe if you reduce the applesauce they will be more dense for you.

  9. 5 stars
    I made these with allulose instead of honey and added one scoop of plant based protein powder. They still came out great with a soft and slightly moist texture. So good.
