National Muffin Day was on February 20th

Today February 20, is national muffin day and I thought this would be a perfect time for me to share one of my lower carbohydrate healthier recipes, which may be found in my book the Weight Management Revolution. This book is available as an e-book from Amazon.

Vegetable and nut muffins

1 cup almond flour

¼ cup cocoa powder

half teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

¼ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon baking soda

three eggs

¼ cup Stevia

2 tablespoons of butter melted

1 tablespoon milk

¾ cup grated zucchini

½ cup chopped walnuts and pecans

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine flour salt cocoa powder cinnamon and baking soda. In another bowl beat eggs and Stevia together for 2 to 3 minutes then add the butter and the milk. Great zucchini and squeeze out all of the extra moisture. Add the walnuts and the pecans. Stir the wet and dry ingredients together, just staring enough to combine. Fold in the zucchini and the nuts. Place muffin papers in a six muffin tin. Divide the mixture equally into six parts. Bake muffins about 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean!

These muffins will provide 10 g of protein 10 g of carbohydrates of which 5 g is fiber, yielding a net carbohydrate value of only 5 g per muffin.
