I have tried making a few different coconut muffins and this one is by far my T1D son’s favourite …
- 200 grams Almond Meal (10g carbs)
- 110 Coconut Flour (27g carbs)
- 6 Large Eggs (4.5g carbs)
- 2/3 Cups Olive Oil (0g carbs)
- 4 tbsp Low Carb Sweetner (0g carbs)
- 1/2 Cup Milk (6g carbs)
- 2 tsp Baking Soda (0g carbs)
- Shredded Coconut (2g carbs)
- Slivered Almonds (1g carbs)
Directions (makes 18 muffins):
- Mix together try ingredients
- Add wet ingredients and mix together
- Fill greased muffin trays 2/3 full of mixture and then sprinkle with shredded coconut and slivered almonds
- Bake for 18 – 20 minutes at 190C until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
- 400 grams Almond Flour (20g carbs)
- 4 Diced Green Onions (2g carbs)
- 3 tsp Baking Powder (7.5g carbs)
- 2 tsp Salt (0g carbs)
- 8 Large Eggs (6g carbs)
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil (0g carbs)
- 1 Cup Sour Cream (9g carbs)
- 1 tbps mixed / savory herbs (1g carbs)
- 150g Diced Ham (15g carbs)
- 2 Cups Grated Cheese (0g carbs)
- Mix all dry ingredients together
- Add wet ingredients and mix in
- Add optional ingredients to the mix
- Separate the batter into 24 greased muffin tins and bake for 15 – 20 minutes at 180C until golden at the edges
This recipes makes 24 delicious savory muffins. With the cheese and herbs, depending on the brand of ingredients that you use, each muffin will be about 2 grams of carbs each. With the added ham, again depending on brand, each muffin will only be about 2.5 grams of carbs each.
This is one of our kid’s favourite muffin recipes. I quite regularly include it in my kids school lunch boxes.
It’s a fun recipe for the kids to help prepare as well. If cooking with young kids I find it best to cut up the apples before they start to help.
- 2 x Apples – finely diced
- 2 x very ripe Bananas
- 1 1/2 cups of Wholemeal Self Rising Flour
- 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 2 x Eggs
- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1 tablespoon Honey
- 1/2 cup of Low Fat Milk
Start the oven preheating to 180C (350F).
Stir the flour and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl. Then add the apple and mix it through.
Add the eggs, oil, banana and milk and stir it through.
Grease a medium size muffin tray and fill the 12 muffin spots equally with the batter and place in the preheated oven for 20-minutes, or until cooked.
Update: I originally tried with recipe with 3-apples, but that was too much apple. The 2-apples in the revised recipe above works out much better.
