Everyone loves muffins. Well, at least I do, however, they don’t all fit in a low carb diet. I personally, keep my carb intake pretty low, most of the time anyway. Today I want to share with you a new recipe that I tried. Low Carb Almond Meal Muffins are super easy and quick to make and they taste great.

Not all almond flour/meal is the same. Almond flour is blanched almonds that are ground, then sifted into a fine powdery flour, it is very different from almond meal. Almond meal is ground almonds that have NOT been blanched, meaning the skin is left on. It is much more coarse. You can use either one however, I prefer the almond flour. I have had the muffins made with both and while they are both good, the almond flour was my preference.

The recipe calls for 1/3 cup of water. I used a 50/50 water and milk combination to equal the 1/3 cup. You can use almond milk or 2 % milk, whichever you prefer. Also, the original recipe that I tried did not include any spices. I did add cinnamon and nutmeg. Feel free to mix it up and come up with your own spice combo.
