Low Carb English Muffins

047

This English Muffin is a winner!  Even hubby, who is not a fan of any kind of one minute muffin liked it.  I found it on Facebook, and wish I could give credit to whoever posted it, but unfortunately I don’t remember who it was.

It’s very substantial, we split one between both of us, sometimes adding butter, sometimes cream cheese and sugar free raspberry preserves.  It’s very dense, it has two eggs, so of course you taste the egg, but the best part, the coconut flour isn’t overpowering, and I am not a fan normally of coconut flour. I think toasting it is the key, it gives it a nice crunch and base for whatever you top it with.

Hope you all enjoy this as much as we did, it’s fast, easy and yummy ~ Jan

1 tablespoon of coconut flour

1 tablespoon of almond flour

2 eggs

1tablespoon of water

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

Tiny pinch of salt, just a very small pinch or it will be too salty, but I think it tastes flat without the salt

I whisked this and pour into an oversized ramekin sprayed with Pam.

Microwave for 2 minutes I slice in half and toast it in the toaster 

Update:  I tried making this using 1 egg and 1 egg white, also put it in my Bullet to blend.  Results weren’t as good as with two egg yolks, it was drier, the flavor wasn’t as rich and the consistency wasn’t right.  Don’t try to save 60 calories by omitting the 2nd egg yolk, it just doesn’t work and I think the Bullet over blended it, the whisk works much better. 

So, it’s back to basics for me...

Sweet Eggs

 Ahhhh, pancakes with syrup, don’t you love them?  But they’re carb laden, and I do make really good low carb waffles with almond flour, but some mornings I just don’t want to take the time.  So, instead I make sweet eggs.

My go to recipe is to put 2 eggs with 2 ounces of cream cheese 3 drops of EzSweetz and a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg  in my Vitamix or Bullet Blender and whip til frothy, then scramble in a skillet.  I used to try and make pancakes, but they were thin and runny, and it’s easier and works just as well to scramble, the taste is the same, then just eat them with Sugar Free Syrup.  I’ve used Mrs. Butterworth’s forever, it doesn’t spike insulin, it’s my fave!

So fast forward to this morning, I scrambled myself an egg + egg white and a couple of strips of bacon, I start eating and think, darn, why didn’t I  make sweet eggs instead.  Now my eggs had salt and pepper on them, but I thought “what the heck” and I doused them with Mrs. Butterworth.  They were AWESOME!  I’ll do this again, but I will dust with some nutmeg or cinnamon.  Can’t get any easier than this.

If you’re sick of eggs, give this a try, it’s a winner… ~ Jan

Update:

After posting this recipe on The Low Carb Dish (Facebook), Tyler Buhl posted her recipe for Sweet Eggs and a picture of her lunch.  Well, hers blows mine out of the water.  Here’s Tyler’s picture and how she makes hers...

For this recipe she mixed together three eggs, stevia and a bit of vanilla and baked it in a loaf pan in a 350 oven until done.  Then she smeared it with butter, sprinkled it with stevia and cinnamon and popped back in under the broiler for a few minutes, topping it off with sugar free syrup.  I’m making this in the morning!

Tyler, you are a ROCK STAR!!!!

Carolyn, at All Day I Dream About Food always has amazing recipes.  This is on my “must try” list, as I feel deprived if I can't finish dinner with something sweet.  I usually grab at Atkins Bar, but this would be much better for me.  And yes, I know it’s a horrible habit, one that I have tried and always failed to conquer my entire lifetime, even when eating low carb.  I’m never satisfied until I have something sweet and this should work nicely.

Looks wonderful, doesn’t it?  You can grab the recipe from her site, here’s the link...
