Strawberry Muffins : An Amazing Low Carb Muffins recipe
When you make these Strawberry Muffins you will be in for a low carb treat. I made these muffins last Saturday for my family’s brunch. Every Sunday around my house we end up making
I highly recommend these low carb muffins because my non-keto wife gave these low carb muffins her seal of approval. Our 9-year-old daughter loved the muffin recipe so much that she asked me to make these Strawberry Muffins every Sunday. It is for this reason why I decided to post this simple low carb muffin recipe today.
Simple Ingredients make delicious Strawberry Muffins
Another great thing to note about this low carb muffin recipe is how simple the ingredients are. There are keto cupcake recipes that are delicious yet require too much work for brunch due to the frosting. These Strawberry Muffins have no frosting and therefore take only 40 minutes to make. A muffin is merely a naked cupcake after all.
Although the measurements should be as precise as possible there is a little bit of breathing room when making this low carb muffin recipe. I have included both the weighted and cups measurements in this recipe because it is very forgiving.
Why I choose to eat a low carb diet
I chose to eat a ketogenic diet above all to keep my autoimmune disease Rheumatoid Arthritis supresseed. I have found that eating too much sugar even when found in fruits can adversely affect my symptoms.
This can include joint pain, fatigue and inflammation. When eaten in small doses I have discovered that Strawberries do not cause flare ups of my disease and for this I am grateful.
Strawberry Muffins and the Keto Diet

The answer here is yes as long as you pay attention to the carb counts and remember that fruit is natures candy and should be treated as such. When compared to other fruits such as bananas that contain about 20 carbs per 100 grams, strawberries are the logical choice.

- Combine the melted coconut oil, erythritol, eggs, Vanilla, salt and maple extract together in side of a food processor. Pulse until combined fully.

You might need to add more or less depending on the consistency of your almond flour. The batter should be like grainy play dough.

The cupcakes are done when you can insert a toothpick inside the center of a muffin and it comes out dry. Allow the Strawberry Muffins to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
