welp, i am on atkins, AGAIN! i have been on and off since Feb. 08. I lost a total of 20lbs, and like every good american, i have put on some holiday pounds. so, time to get serious. i was 155 at the start, and got down to 135 and even when i am off i usually only get up to 140-145, so i am aiming to be on it all year, and going off on the weekends (only after the first 3 months), my goal is 130, so here we go again...
i am always trying to make recipes that are low carb, ot tweek them anyhow.
these muffins are DELISH and super low carb, great texture and deffinately satisfying to a sweet attack.
LOW CARB MUFFIN RECIPE:
1 cup soy flower (or atkins bake mix) (about 16 carbs total)
1tsp baking powder (0carb)
1/2 stick of butter (0carb)
1/2 cup of heavy cream (0carb)
immatation vanilla to taste (0carb)
2 eggs (1carb total)
1 pkg of sugar free orange jello (0carb)
a few sakes of cloves and ginger (0carbs)
Preheat oven 375 - mix all ingredients - put in average muffin pan - bake until done (i never pay attention, i just know when to check :) ) yields about 8 muffins
*and tada! yummy muffins!* these are also great with low carb cream cheese frosting.
you can substitute the orange jello for any kind of flavor jello, just leave out the spices :) the blue berry is also great, and strawberry, and dark cherry, and strawberry kiwi, and.......
see ya in the jello isle at kroger ;)
