Low Carb/Low Sugar Blueberry Muffins
I love blueberries and this is a great recipe for those of you who want a dessert but don't want to eat too many carbs or too much sugar. If you are on a keto diet or maybe you have diabetes, this might satisfy your hunger for something sweet. These are very easy to make but the best part is that they are moist and delicious. Make sure to let them cool down completely. Almond flour does taste better when is cold. I hope you guys enjoy it!
*2 cups(234 grams) Blanched Almond Flour
*1/4 cup (32 grams) Coconut Flour
*1/4 tsp salt
*3/4 cup and 2 tablespoons (137 grams) Swerve Sugar
*1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
*5 tablespoons (80 grams) of butter (I used salted)
*1/3 cup and 2 tablespoons (109 grams) Heavy Cream
*3 large eggs ( I use jumbo)
*2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
*1cup of Sweet and fresh Blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 F (177 degrees C)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Line a cupcake/muffin pan with 10 to 12 cupcakes/muffin liners. In a bowl, stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, Swerve*, baking powder, and salt.
Add in the melted butter, heavy cream, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well and then fold in the blueberries.
Distribute the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Add a few blueberries on the top of each muffin and sprinkle some Truvia or Swerve Granular on top of the cupcakes. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until the top is golden and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Make sure to let the muffins cool completely before eating. I personally feel that almond flour tastes best once it has cool down and rested.
*Swerve comes in granular or confectioners. You can use either of them for baking. Sometimes I do half of Truvia and half of Swerve to the mix. I feel it blends really well but is not necessary. Both of them are Erythritol. Some people like Monk Fruit but I am not a fan of it so if you rather use it make sure the batter it's sweetened to your likeness. This recipe works well for keto but keep in mind that even though Blueberries are accepted in Keto, you have to make sure not to overeat them as they can raise your carb count so if you are in a keto diet you can add fewer Blueberries.
