So, I feel like all of the recipes that I am Â posting are sweets. We do eat a lot of veggies I promise! Most of those recipes we eat, I have already posted like the baked squash that has been a favorite of late. Also, for lunches, I have found that taking frozen veggies like broccoli or green beans placed in a tupperware with a little bit of seasoning are great for lunches. Just microwave for a 2-3 minutes, and you haveÂ perfectly steamed veggies.Â Â Since I work from home it is easy to ignore my lunches or crave things I shouldn’t, so I have found the most effective way to eat well is to pack myself a lunch at the same time that I pack Grant’s. That way, I almost always eat what I have packed since it is easier to do that than prepare something else.
I was craving cinnamon rolls, and so found a recipe HERE from the Keto Cook’s Blog.Â
I whipped up some keto icing, and I thought this tasted amazing! I don’t think it would last well overnight,but it might if refrigerated.
Keto Cinnamon Muffins with Cream Cheese Icing
Recipe Adapted from HERE!!
1.5T (21g) Greek yogurt, Fage Total Classic ( I used sour cream)
1T (15g) Walden Farms pancake syrup (Found at most grocery stores in the diabetic section or sub with favorite sweetener)
1/2 (25g) egg
1/4C (28g) almond flour
1/16t (0.3g) sea salt
1/8t (0.6g) baking soda
1T (14g) butter, softened
1/2T (3g) ground cinnamon
1T (15g) Walden Farms pancake syrupÂ (Found at most grocery stores in the diabetic section or sub with favorite sweetener)
1/2T (7g) european style butter, melted
1T chopped walnuts (optional)( I didn’t add this because Grant isn’t always a fan of different textures in things)
Mix all the dry ingredients for the muffins. Â Mix all the wet ingredients for muffins and combine well with the dry ingredients.
Mix the cinnamon topping ingredients together and set aside.
In a greased mini muffin pan, pour the batter half way up. Â add 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon topping in the center, then pour the muffin batter to 3/4 way to the top. Â if you are using walnuts, you can top it at this time (i left it out since clara doesnâ€™t like the texture with it). Â pour rest of the toppings on top. Â give it a little stir with a toothpick.
Bake at 325F (preheated) for 15-17 minutes.
***I made regular sized muffins, so my recipe made a total of 5 regular sized muffins***
4 oz. Softened Cream Cheese
Truvia or Erythritol to taste
1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla or to taste
Mix the softened cream cheese with sweetener of your choice and add some vanilla as well. One could add some cinnamon as well,but I didn’t see a need to. Mix well, and put on top of the Muffins/cinnamon rolls.
