These muffins are meant to taste like doughnuts, and I think they do a good job. There's even a version with buttermilk. This is one of the few recipes for which I use powdered Splenda (for the topping). You don't end up using much per muffin, but you need enough to dip the tops. Save the rest for cinnamon toast made with flax meal bread. Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes

Recipe Ingredients for Low-Carb "Doughnut" Muffins

1 cup flax meal
1 cup almond meal
1 T baking powder
1/4 t salt
1 1/4 t nutmeg
1 t cinnamon
1 cup splenda no calorie
1/2 cup (I stick) butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup water
2 T water

Topping:
1/2 cup splenda
2 t cinnamon
2 T melted butter

Recipe Directions for Low-Carb "Doughnut" Muffins

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; butter muffin pans.

  2. 2. Mix dry ingredients well (exclude those used for topping).

  3. 3. Add beaten eggs, melted butter, water, and sweetener to the dry mixture. Mix well.

  4. 4. Fill muffin cups a bit more than half way with the mixture.

  5. 5. Bake for about 20 minutes, until tops are golden brown. Allow muffins to cool in pan for a few minutes, then remove.

  6. 6. Mix the cinnamon and powdered sweetener for the topping in a clean bowl.

  7. 7. When the muffins are cool enough to handle, dip the tops in the melted butter you allocated for the topping, followed by the sweetener/cinnamon mixture.

  8. Each muffin has 1.5 gram effective carbohydrate plus 4 grams fiber. (This is assuming half a gram of carb for the topping.)

  9. Buttermilk Version: Switch out 1/2 cup buttermilk for the same amount of water. Substitute 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon baking powder for the baking powder in the regular recipe. This variation adds half a gram of carb to each muffin.
