WHAT'S COOKING: Low-Carb Gluten Free Muffins (Trader Joe's Almond Meal)

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

The following makes 12 standard-sized muffins (3.5 oz)

Dry Ingredients:
         2 cups almond meal (Trader Joe's)
         2 teaspoons baking powder (Trader Joe's)
         1/4 teaspoon salt
         2 tsp guar gum
         Optional: 2 TBSP sugar or 5 packets Truvia 
         Optional: 2 TSP Cinnamon 

Wet Ingredients:
         1/2 cup (8 tbsp) butter, melted (recommend Kerrygold salted butter) or 1/2 cup Refined Coconut Oil (the refined oil does not have the coconut flavor, but all the health benefits)
         4 eggs
         1/3 cup water

1.      Preheat oven to 350 F.
2.      Butter a 12-muffin tin. (Use refined coconut oil)
3.      Mix wet ingredients in separate bowl.
4.      Mix dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.  This mixing will avoid egg-white "tunnels" from developing in the almond meal.
5.      Spoon mixture into muffin tins (about 1/2 to 2/3 full), and bake for 20 minutes, or less based on preference.
