No More Muffin Top Muffins!

Almond Cherry Muffin

This is too good not to share!  It is all natural.  We used Almond flour and Stevia so it is low carb packed with protein.  It makes a great snack.  Make a cup of tea and enjoy.  These babies taste amazing!  

Disclaimer: If you are expecting it to taste like the processed muffins or sugar coma inducing pastry's from the store, you might be disappointed.  We are used to eating healthy alternatives.  We were so excited about it we gave a bite to a friend to try.  She said it tasted healthy and gritty.  She could eat it if she was starving!  Ha.  More for us, I guess.  

If you are brave, give it a try!  I don't think it tastes healthy for being really healthy, if you know what I mean. 

Almond Cherry Muffins

2 1/4  cups almond flour 
sugar substitute equivalent to 2 T sugar (we used 1 1/2 t stevia from Trader Joe's)
1 t  baking powder
3/4 cup melted butter
1 cup cream
4 eggs
2 t almond extract
1 cup dried cherries 

Preheat oven to 350.  Line muffin pan with 12 muffin cups.

In one bowl mix together all wet ingredients. In larger bowl, mix the dry ingredients (except cherries) Mix only till combined, do not beat.  Mix in cherries and divide evenly between muffin cups. 

Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch.  Let cool.  

Put on plate.  

Remove muffin cup.

Pick up.
