Recipe

Although I don’t adhere strictly to a low carb diet, I do try and avoid carb overload. I also find that adding a week of low carb meals to my diet can help me break through plateaus or kick start weight loss after an indulgent weekend or vacation. However, like anyone living low carb, I crave my favorite carb laden products the minute I commit to low carb. We always want what we can’t have, right? So when those cravings strike, these low carb muffins made with coconut flour are a great recipe to fulfill cravings. Coconut flour is low in carbohydrates but high in fiber and protein, which makes it a great baking alternative. If you can’t find it in your local market, try Trader Joe’s (it’s only $2.99!) or Amazon. One quick note aboue these muffins. If you aren’t used to low carb baking, the muffin texture is very different from a traditional muffin.

    Very good, but I added a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon along with the blueberries.
