Have you tried using golden flaxseed meal yet? It is such a great ingredient that is inexpensive, high in fiber and high in other nutrients, too. It has a very mild flavor and I try to include it in as many recipes as I can. Here are the chocolate muffins we have been enjoying lately. I like to top these with cream cheese frosting and strawberries to make mini strawberry shortcakes, just like the original ones, except chocolatey!
Delicious, high fiber chocolate muffin. Gluten-free, wheat-free, grain-free, low carb.
- 1.25 cups golden flaxseed meal
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1.5 tablespoons cinnamon
- 2.25 teaspoons stevia glycerite (or sweetener equal to 2.25 cups sugar)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut oil or butter
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Slightly beat the eggs, then add the sour cream, vanilla and coconut oil. Mix with a whisk until smooth.
In a separate bowl, mix the remaining dry ingredients together until well blended. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing thoroughly until smooth (this may take a minute).
Let the mixture sit while you preheat the oven to 350 degrees (325 for a dark pan). Grease muffin tin and, after the mixture has set for about 5 minutes, pour batter in, almost to the top.
Bake 20-25 minutes.
Made with coconut oil, each muffin contains 6.4 g protein, 9.6 g carb, 8.3 g fiber (1.3 g net carb), and .4g sugar.
To make these cinnamon only (and reduce net carbs to .6 g each), simply omit the cocoa powder.
