Low Carb Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins

Not too long ago I purchased a box of Carbquik as so many people suggested I give it a try to make low carb treats. I have to say we really like using it. There are endless recipes for so many treats that would normally have a tonne of carbs in them like pancakes and muffins. Carbquik is made from wheat so it actually tastes like flour with 90% less the carbs as regular flour. Its made with Carbalose which is similar to Bisquick.

Ingredients: Carbalose Flour (Enzyme-Enriched Wheat & Wheat Protein, Wheat Gluten, Wheat and Vegetable Fiber, High-Protein Wheat Flour, Canola Oil, Salt, Emulsifiers, Enzymes, Ascorbic Acid, Sucralose, Calcium Proportionate), Palm Oil, Buttermilk Powder, Baking Powder, Egg White Solids, Lecithin, Salt, Natural & Artificial Flavors.

So with all the technical stuff out of the way I made these lovely little muffins this morning and they are only 3g carb each and only took about 20 minutes from start to finish. They are especially yummy warm right out of the oven with a little pat of butter melting over it.

When mixing the batter keep in mind that is doesn’t really pour into the muffin cups but don’t worry the muffins eventually fill the muffin cups and rise quite nicely withing 15 minutes. You can get really creative with these as well. Try banana and nut, blueberry, strawberry and rhubarb or go savory instead of sweet with a little rosemary and vanilla.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
