Induction Friendly Muffins

Can someone tell me of some type of "muffins" that I can have for breakfast that you can have during Induction (either to be brought or to make) ?

I'm desperately looking for some new things for breakfast and "muffins" are my favorite especially with coffee (decaf of course).

Have you taken a peak at the recipes?

So long as they don't have milk, flour (not even soy), fruit or nuts...you are good to go!

I just posted my muffin experiment in the "anyone bake with stevia" thread. I think they are comparable to "real" muffins, and am looking for feedback, if you are interested.

Are you looking for traditional muffins? If you're following a strict induction, you're probably not going to find any that will work.

If you don't mind muffins that aren't traditional, you might try one of these:

---

Scrambled Eggs to Go

1 lb. sausage
12 eggs
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

Cook sausage until crumbly. Let cool and add eggs and cheese. Mix together and fill greased muffin tins. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and set.

Makes 18 muffins in a regular muffin tin... 3 muffins = 2 eggs. If your muffin cups are a little larger, you'll get 12.

These reheat great in the microwave... about 1 1/2 minutes for 2-3 "muffins".

---

Mock Danish

3 oz cream cheese (soften in microwave)
1 egg
1 Tbs splenda
1 tsp lemon juice (or to taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix softened cream cheese and egg.
Add remaining ingredients.
Microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes

---

Cream Cheese Muffins

Atkins Cheese Danish

Mock French Toast

Tuna Muffins

---------

Once you're past strict induction (first 2 weeks), but are sticking to induction levels, you might try one of these:

---

Flaxmeal Muffin Recipes

---

Dizneegirl's Coconut Flax Muffins

2 eggs
1/8 teaspoon stevia, or to taste (equal to 1/2 cup sweetness)
dash salt
2 tablespoons DaVinci (I used german chocolate cake)
1/4 cup coconut oil
4 tablespoons melted butter
1/3 cup vanilla whey protein
1 cup flax meal
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 teaspoons baking powder

Mix all ingredients and let rest several minutes. Fill 6 muffin tins (I use a silicone pan, you may need to grease metal pans) and bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes, until top springs back when lightly touched. Remove from pan and let cool. Makes 6 muffins.

Per Muffin (using Designer Whey Protein): 284 Calories; 27g Fat (78.9% calories from fat); 9g Protein; 7g Carbohydrate; 5g Dietary Fiber; 88mg Cholesterol; 313mg Sodium

Isn't coconut okay on induction? My recipe uses coconut flour, and the muffins are mainly fat, protein and fiber, in that order.

I forgot to ask... are those cream cheese muffins good for induction or past the induction phase. I went to the link and they too sound good and look yummy.

I had wondered about that myself. With 2g carbs per ounce of cream cheese, it adds up. I made some and couldn't stop eating them I am sure I got an overload of fat and carbs that day. Might be a good cheesecake like dessert, though.

Here are a couple I posted over on the recipe help and suggestion board:

Breakfast 'Cupcakes'
Serves: 6


1 lb Sausage
2 egg whites
2 whole eggs
1/2 tsp thyme
2 tsp chives
2 Cups heavy cream
1/2 tsp sage
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place a jumbo muffin liner in a jumbo muffin tin. ( I just spary my non-stick one really good, never had a problem) Fry sausage until no longer pink, drain; rinse under hot water to remove excess grease (don't omit this it does help); set aside. Beat together the egg, egg whites, cream and spices. Divide sausage between muffin cups. Top with a little cheese then pour egg mixture on top. Fill 3/4 full. Bake for 30 minutes or unt well browned on top. Cool on wire rack. Run a knife around the edges to loosen. I wait until the are cool and then just pop them out with a small spatula.

To reheat; microwave at full power for 1 mintue. These are great with a dollop of sour cream on top. I get 4.5 carbs for each. This recipe came from low carb friends but I don't remember who.

Bacon Cheese Puffs
Makes 12
By Bobbi D

1/2 cup heavy cream
3 eggs
1/4 cup atkins bake mix (I've this, and tried them with almond flour and coconut flour
the nut flours taste better to me)
1 lb bacon, cut in pieces and fried until crisp, crumble
1 pinch salt
3/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup grated cheddar cheese ( I use 8oz)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin; set aside. Beat together eggs, cream, bake mix or nut flour, pepper and salt. Stir in bacon and cheese. Mixture will be very thick. Scoop mixture into prepared pan, (a 1/3 cup measuring cup works good). Bake for 25 minutes. The orginal poster use a little of the bacon grease to grease the pan.

I made the CC muffins in regular sized muffin cups and only got 12. Are they supposed to be mini muffins?

The carb profile does work out well if you can only eat 1 or 2 (assuming you get the recipe to make 20) but I really could not stop eating them.

I am going to make these myself over the weekend (hopefully) to test it out. On the other post, I saw a picture of a 20 muffin pan filled with these cheesecake muffins. We'll see.

I know what you mean though about not being able to stop eating them...there's another mock danish recipe that I have that is SO good. I have to be so careful when I make it, or I could eat the whold thing in two days. No good.

Hm, thanks for the coconut info. I am not strict Atkins, so I guess I can continue to fudge on that. It doesn't seem to hurt me any.

I finally found the pic of the 20 muffins, and yes, they are minis. Now wonder I couldn't get that many with my regular pan! Mine were all flat and didn't puff up like the pic, either. But now I know why.

OK... I made them... they are VERYYYYYYYYYYYYY GOOD !!!

Thanks everyone for your input... now I can ADD this into my rotation of breakfast foods (not often as I think they may be addicting...)

Mine turned out really good... more like a mini-cheesecake of sort

LadyLove, you may find that the cheesecake cupcakes don't fill you up until lunch, so be sure to bring some legal snacks with you (if you're going out) in case you get hungry. (That is assuming you don't eat all 20!! ha ha) Or you may want to have something in addition to the cupcake in the am. Just a thought! Nothing is worse than feeling hungry with NOTHING you can eat around.

Yeah ... I experienced that this morning (without a doubt I'm going to have to have something in ADDITION to the muffins in the morning).

Love them.
