Mini Bran Muffins - Low Carb Version
« on: May 02, 2011, 06:58:29 PM »
Mini Bran Muffins Low Carb Version

cup shortening                      0 net carbs
12 drops FAT TO SKINNY Zero Sweetener            0
cup sugar free maple syrup      0
2 large eggs            1.2
1 cup sugar free Vanilla Almond Milk                1
1 cups GG Brancrisp Sprinkles      16 available here- http://www.brancrispbread.com/#
1 cup Golden Flaxseed Meal                   0
1 tsp baking powder         1.8
tsp baking soda                      0
tsp salt            0
TOTAL NET CARBS PER WHOLE RECIPE:           20
(Divide net carbs by the number of mini muffins you make to get the carb count per muffin.  The first time I made 36 and this time I made 35)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400F.   Line mini muffin pans with paper liners.  Cream together shortening and sweetener.  Add SF maple syrup and eggs.  Beat with electric mixer.  Add SF Vanilla Almond Milk and GG Brancrisp Sprinkles.  Beat with electric mixer until well blended.  In a separate bowl blend together golden flax meal, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir together.  Divide among the muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes or until done.

Helpful Hint:  I bag the muffins into servings (3-4 per bag) and then put them in a larger bag in the freezer.  That way they are ready to grab for a quick breakfast or to put in my lunch for work without the temptation of having "just one more".

Hey ShihTzuMom1  These look wonderful.  I was wondering if you didn't have the sprinkles could you just crush the crisps?  I wasn't sure if it was the same thing or not..LOL  thanks.    I think hubs would like them.

I'll have to give these a try. I was going to ask the same thing as Shawn about crushing up the GG Crispbread.

GG sells the bran already crushed and ready for baking, they call them "sprinkles"  http://www.brancrispbread.com/
