    Geema's Note:

    The first time I made these muffins I was pleasantly surprised at how moist and light they were using such a small amount of oil. If you are on a diabetic or low carb diet, you will be thrilled to have this easy, recipe, and if you aren't on a diet, you will still love the taste and nutrition these muffins offer. I found this recipe on a low carb website...but forgot which one! I am experimenting with different flavors of protein powder and extracts and have so far enjoyed chocolate, vanilla and berry.

      Wow! Now of course, this doesn't have flour so though moist, it's not that same moist texture you would get with flour but what a healthy treat! Tastes like a yummy cookie to me. I loved the nutty flavor. This one will become a staple! I also love how I'll be able to pack these for a healthy snack or eat with some fruit for breakfast. I used finely ground flaxseed (found at Whole Foods) and threw the nuts in the processor to get them chopped up well, since I knew I wouldn't like big chunks of nuts. Thank you!

      Thank you thank you thank you - I'm back on strict Atkins and needed something legal that tastes forbidden. These are terrific and so flexible and easy. Because I'm sodium sensitive I cut the baking powder by 1/3 - no problem. I added ground cinnamon and ginger - delicious.

      Wonderful muffins, and I even forgot the extract. Just enjoyed one warm from the oven as a snack with cream cheese. I had already ground almonds to use as flour so I added some of that instead of chopped nuts. Gave these an almost corn muffin texture. I used a cookies and cream protein powder and it was delish. Thanks for sharing.
