Thanks for the cream cheese muffin recipe. I just made it and I'm sure it would be great if I didn't use stevia for the sweetener.... huh? I read that you can bake with stevia, but this was a first and the muffins have a terrible aftertaste. Maybe I just used too much? I read to use 1 tsp of stevia extract for 1 cup of sugar or Splenda. I actually only used closer to 1/2 tsp. anyone have any luck with stevia?

I think you may be right about using too much. All stevia is different in sweetening. Are you sure yours is 1 tsp=1 cup sweetening? Sometimes it's 1/4 tsp to a cup. They also taste different. I like to mix sweeteners for a better result. Plus I am not crazy about stevia alone for something really sweet for a dessert.

I made these....they are NASTY !!!.. I am going to try using them for french toast like someone here suggested. I'm thinking with a lot of syrup I should be able to tolerate them..Sorry everyone that said they love them. I guess I just can't go the eggy texture for sandwiches. I tried....I really did!

I think you are confusing cream cheese muffins with oopsie rolls.

Cream. cheese muffins

Hi.....I'm new here! Hello to all. My muffins are in the oven now and I'm hoping to have them for my 3am snack. I work nites so it's not easy to find something healthy and to satisfy my sweet tooth. I'll give you my review later. By the way, the batter is delicious!:

Eeyup. My stove it out of commission till the door is repaird and my stove top has electrical problems so I'm pulling out all my gadgets to keep me from going to Wendy's and McDonalds!

I've got small size baking dishes, but I never tried to use them in the toaster oven as they are designed. Guess I'd better get to it!

Thanks for the quick reply.

I feel for you metqa. My oven broke months ago and I am using a countertop convection oven. Not the best, but it will do til we get our oven replaced. DH tried to replace the broken pieces, but it was a no-go. So now we are stuck saving for a new one I have not attempted the cream cheese muffins (even though I am dying for one as I have just finished P2, today is P3 Day 1) because I cannot fit a pan underneath for the water bath. But I suppose I can just cook the muffin pan in the water. My muffin wrappers are the silicone ones. Hmmm, just gave me the answer to my own question. I better get to it too

Oh yeah, that would work, you just need a pan that would fit and you can put the silicone ones in as well. I forgot about the water bath part. can't recall if I ever did that or was just the lazy version....

I am the lazy one. That is why I have not made these in forever I just get used to my oven for EVERYTHING that when I lost it, I felt so lost. Now I am better. I have my crock pot, my stove (thank God that didn't break), and my microwave. And various other gadgets to get me through. But I was just so used to my oven, I haven't even cooked bacon yet just don't want to get my new countertop oven dirty but I am dying for bacon. So I will bite the bullet there too.

You lucky lady, I broke my stovetop as well. LOL So I need to break out my crock pot and the microwave cook book for two that I almost gave away! I don't even know how to cook bacon i the microwave, I'm afraid it will explode or melt down!

But my countertop oven gets up to 400 degrees so I guess it should work just fine. I'll have to make a half batch that will fit in there.

Just made these again after a couple of years and they were delicious. I used someone else's suggestion about mixing a drink size crystal light lemonade and some lemon juice into the 1/2 batch mixture. Only one egg. I sprayed my silicone cupcake holders and microwaved them for only three minutes. Cooled a bit on counter and refrigerated for several hours. Took one out, added some sf cherry preserves, and a squirt of canned sugar free whipped cream. I ate it right out of the cupcake holder. Wonderful and fast.

That sounds great! Although I think I threw out all my Crystal light. Can't remember why...what is it sweetened with?

I believe that Crystal light is sweetened with aspertame, unless they changed it recently.

just a thought for those without an oven I've seen recipes for cheesecake done in a crockpot and pressure cookers. I believe still done with the bain marie method. Could probably do it with this too. It would just take longer to cook.

Thanks!

I also wanted to add my thanks for this simple and wonderful recipe. I have read through these posts and ideas (yes, all of them!) and I thought I would try to make a Pina Colada one. I toasted a bit of unsweetened coconut in the bottom of each muffin tin, then substituted 1/4 c of DaVinci Pineapple syrup for the Splenda, and just over 1/4 c of Splenda.
They just came out of the oven and have cooled for 10 minutes. They came out of the pan nicely (I sprayed with Trader Joe's Coconut Oil spray), and I just had to try one warm. AWESOME!! I didn't find them "eggy" at all.
Can't wait to try them cold for dessert with hubby tonight.
I think next time, I would try adding a bit of coconut extract to the mix. I thought of using crushed pineapple, but figured it would make it too wet, and would up the carbs by quite a bit. I may try to make a whipped cream with more Pineapple syrup, and maybe a bit of coconut extract...hmmm or maybe just Cool Whip!
Thanks again JCH!
