Blueberry Muffins

I had a craving for some blueberry muffins today and have several low carb recipes. However, there is one recipe that I used to make in my high carb days that I've never tried so today was the day to low carb it - the muffins are perfect and taste exactly like the previous ones I made. I'll probably be using this recipe exclusively from here on.

Blueberry Muffins

3 cups Carbalose flour mix
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup butter, softened (1 1/2 sticks)
1/2 cup Erythritol, powdered
1/2 cup Xylitol, powdered
12 drops EZ-Sweetz
1/8 tsp. stevia
3 eggs
3/4 cup Calorie Countdown milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries

In small bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In large bowl, cream together butter and sweeteners. Add the eggs, one at a time and beat well. Mix in the milk and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients, mix till moistened but don't overmix the batter. Fold in the blueberries.
Using ice cream scoop, fill 18 muffin cups then sprinkle topping ingredients over each muffin.

Topping: 2 Tb. Erythritol, granular, 1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg.

Making 18 muffins these come out to about 4 carbs each. (3.6)

They sure do look pretty TG. I'm not eating wheat anymore so I'd have to use other flours. I haven't made any blueberry muffins since I ditched wheat. Must go back through my BB Muffin recipes and see what I can come up with.

I'm with Buttoni. These look amazing, but I don't eat wheat. Do you have a version that is wheat-free please?

Esther - I don't know why the pics won't enlarge, I must have done something wrong. I'm going to try them again, the second one shows the texture/crumb and I would like that to be clearer. Here goes:




Peggy, Tracy - thanks. Tracy, I don't have a wheat free version because I use the Carbalose blend a lot in baking when I'm converting a recipe. I think you could try just almond flour in place of the Carbalose mix though.

Barbo - they are yummo! Thank you.

What is the Carbalose blend? Kevin's mix or straight carbalose from the bag?

I have a similar recipe with Carbalose, but it uses sour cream.

Jeanne - I still have some Thick-It-Up that I use in place of not/Sugar - I use 3 Tb. when I make the flour mix but I have used xanthan gum in a pinch.

The recipe is;
Carbalose LC Cake and Cookie Flour Mix

4 cups Carbalose flour
2 cups wheat protein isolate 5000
1/2 cup wheat protein isolate 8000
3/4 cup almond flour
3/4 cup high maize resistant corn starch
3 tsp. of xanthan gum or 3 Tb. Thick It-Up

This mix yields 8 to 9 cups

Tweaker thanks for the info-I will use the xanthan gum since it is what I have-those muffins are calling my name--now to obtain some resistant corn starch.
