Almond Apple Spice Muffins

These low-carb, high-protein muffins use unsweetened apple sauce and almond meal to cut down on added sugars and excess carbs.



  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 °F (175 °C). Melt butter in microwave (~30 seconds on low heat).
  2. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or use cup cake liners.
  3. Pour mix into muffin tins, make sure not to over fill (~3/4 full); this should make 12 muffins (2 muffin trays).
  4. Place one tray in the oven and cook for 12 minutes. Make sure not to overcook as the muffins will become very dry. Once cooked remove from the oven and cook the second muffin tray.
  5. Note: these muffins are extremely portable and convenient if you're on the go and deliver less than 10 grams of carbohydrates per muffin.

I'm pretty sure I followed the recipe other than adding in larger measures of the spices and these muffins refused to cook. Insides still very eggy after 25mins at 350. These are filling though & I think they would make a good breakfast on the good. Kinda feels like the carbs I wake up craving but acts more like the omlette I wish I woke up early enough to make!

I put in 3 packets of 0 cal sweetener, taking note from reviews, and I think they are just right with that. Not too sweet but with a hint of sweetness at least. The applesauce makes these very moist. Not too happy about the calorie count vs portions... :/

These come out pretty great, but since they don't puff up that much, you could put more in each cup. They don't have a ton of in your face flavor. So I sprinkled some sweetner on top of them while they were still baking and it really made it fantastic. Even people in my family who aren't on a diet liked it.
Was eady to make but I did not like at all.
