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.
i have made these twice ,the 1st time i made as written with my sweetener of choice stevia in the raw ,they were very good.the 2nd time i made them i omitted 1 egg and added 1 over ripe mashed banana in its place i used coconut oil in place of the butter and added a handful of chopped pecans and it was heaven.
I have been a low carb convert for about a year and I've tried multiple muffin and bread recipes. Most of them have an off-taste that can't be disguised. These muffins are definitely the best I've found. They are good just plain, out of the oven. And the low carb count is great. I didn't give the recipe 5 stars because in my mind there is no low carb bread substitute that deserves the highest rating, but as I said, compared to the others out there, this is top notch.
