Here is a healthy blueberry muffins recipe for those watching their carbs or on a gluten free diet.
I made it to take to a breakfast neighbor gathering to welcome someone new on the block. It was a bit daring of me as I’d never made this type of muffin before. However, earlier this week I’d decided to watch the carbs and forego things with sugar or gluten in them.
I wanted to be sociable, but without destroying my new diet, so this was my answer. And if there’s one thing I know about neighborhood potluck; take what you want to eat and it better be yummy because there will be a lot of temptations!
I researched low carb muffins online and there are plenty of recipes for inspiration out there (see below). I decided on a recipe that was almond flour based as I have to avoid soy products. Then I went to work adding my own adjustments and touches. I used Honeyville Almond flour and was suprised and pleased at how light the texture of the muffins were.
The final results of this healthy blueberry muffins recipe were delicious, if I do say so myself, and well received at breakfast. All of which helped me feel less self conscious about trying to diet ‘incognito’ and enjoy my time with my neighbors more. Happy breakfast! Happy diet! – Laura
