I love a good muffin or two-but, not when it turns into a muffin top. That’s an entirely different story:)
Wait. I Can Have Muffins On The Keto Diet?
If you thought bread, pastries, and muffins were out of your life for good, I’ve got good news.
Thanks to the magic of low carb flours like blanched almond flour and coconut flour, you can have your cake and eat it too without gaining weight.
The only catch is you’ll have to bake it – the store-bought varieties are a no-go.
Best Low Carb Keto-Friendly Flours
But before you run to your kitchen and start baking, here are the keto-friendly flour swaps you need to know.
Blanched Almond Flour or Almond Meal
Both are made from ground almonds, so what’s the difference? Well, the almond meal contains the skin of the almond, while blanched almond flour is made after the skins are removed.
Some folks can tell a significant difference in taste and texture; some say they can’t tell the difference. If you’re new to low carb baking, my best advice is to stick to what the recipe calls for to see where your preference lies.
Coconut flour is a gluten-free, low carb, high-protein swap for traditional all-purpose flour. Coconut flour can be a little tough to master when you’re a beginner – it tends to have a drying effect on baked goods.
Flaxseed (also known as linseed) is another grain-free flour that is becoming more popular every day. Flaxseed contains heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids as well as a decent amount of dietary fiber (1.9 grams per tablespoon), which will help you improve digestion.
This is one of those must-have special ingredients that you’ll wish you had on hand. Psyllium Husk is a gluten-free, grain-free binder and thickener. Use psyllium husk powder in loaves of bread and muffins to get the “tastes like the real thing” style consistency and texture.
