I was a little apprehensive to try these. Some of the low carb recipes out there are way too eggy and have no flavor. I added my own twist to these and they are heavenly. First of all, I only used 1/4c of powdered Stevia. I was afraid to use too much because it can leave a bad after taste sometimes. I also added 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract. Then when the batter was poured into the pan, I added 1 tsp of Peach, Pecan, Amaretto preserves (no sugar or corn syrup added - very low in sugar). This does change the nutritional value a little bit. Add 12 calories and 1.5g sugar/carbs per muffin. Then I sprinkled a little bit of chopped pecans on top too. I used about 1 tsp which adds 17 calories per muffin. I also baked them an extra 3 minutes. Oh my goodness, they are so wonderful. Even the kids love them! You could really use any sugar free jam or jelly or just pecans or whatever you want. They baked up fluffy and wonderful.
