Sugar Free & Gluten Free Strawberry Muffins

    These Sugar Free and Gluten Free Strawberry Muffins are just a delicious treat if you do not eat regular muffins. They are low carb because they use almond flour in place of white flour and Swerve in place of sugar.

    Swerve is new to me. I was introduced to this sugar substitute from other low-carb bloggers. This is the first recipe that I’ve actually used it in. I tried it in my coffee and HATED it!! Like I could not tolerate it and as a result of not using sugar or Splenda and milk, I’ve given up coffee. (That’s a whole nother post!)

    Some notes about this recipe

    #1: These will NOT rise. Yes, there is some baking soda in the recipe, but they will not puff up like a muffin.

    #2: Do not measure them like you would regular muffins. Measure less in the cupcake pan. 


    #3: I liked them better from the microwave instead of the oven. (maybe because they overflowed and got overdone on the edges.) 

    The inside is moist and the outside had a nice crispness to it. It felt and tasted cooked.

    You can also bake them in the microwave for a quick muffin.
