Low carb diets are quick, effective weight loss solutions. They are healthy and satisfying. For years, though, low carb dieters lamented that they missed desserts. There were a few sugar-free substitutes but the taste was always so-so. Well, this is one low carb dessert recipe that does not disappoint. These muffins taste especially good ever-so-slightly warmed up with a dollop of butter added to the top. Melt-in-your-mouth wonderfulness!
Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake Muffin Recipe
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar substitute (I use Pyure Stevia Blend)
1/2 cup fine ground almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tablespoon Whey Protein Powder (I used vanilla flavor)
Preheat oven to 350°.
Spray muffin tin with cooking spray, or use a silicone muffin cup/pan.
Cream together butter and cream cheese with a hand mixer.
Add the no-calorie sugar substitute.
Cream together about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, blending until well combined. Add extract with last egg. Mixture will be very loose.
Add salt, baking powder, almond flour, coconut flour, and whey protein and mix using hand mixer for about 2-3 minutes.
Scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.
Scoop the batter into each muffin cup. Do not overfill.
Serving tip: sprinkle with a light sprinkling of confectioner’s sugar (use a sugar free version, if preferred.)
