How to Make Guilt-Free Muffins

I am always looking for better ways to make my favorite foods because it helps me stay on track to my goals and keeps me from feeling like I am missing out. This was very important when I was losing weight, and now that my goals have changed, my methods have not. I still try to eat as clean as I can, but I there are still foods that I crave and want to eat.
Keeping my diet fun and exciting was one of the key strategies I adopted when I started my journey, and discovering better ways to make my favorite foods took a lot of trial and error. When I began to lose weight, I didn’t know how to make the foods I loved in a way that would actually help me lose the weight, rather than put the pounds back on.
I got a lot of positive feedback from the healthy waffles I made. Many of you had tried them, loved them, and wanted another recipe that you could include in your diet. I’ve even had some people on my Custom Meal Plan asking to have the waffles added to their weekly meals.
Because of all the positive feedback from the waffles, I wanted to bring you another recipe that I love to make: Muffins!
These guilt-free muffins are perfect for breakfast or as a snack. They are healthy, gluten-free, and packed with protein! You’ll even be surprised to find they are a bit sweet, too!
- > 2 cups almond flour
- > ½ tsp baking soda
- > ⅛ tsp salt
- > 2 eggs
- > 2 egg whites
- > ¼ cup grass-fed butter
- > 1 tsp vanilla
- > 1 cup blueberries
- > 1 cup chopped strawberries
- > Cooking oil spray (I use coconut or avocado)
- > Sugar-free whipped cream
Preheat your oven to 350º.
Add your dry ingredients to a medium bowl and mix. Add in your eggs, egg whites, butter, vanilla, and fruit.
Mix your ingredients until all your ingredients are blended.
Spray a muffin pan with your cooking oil and divide your mix into slots. This should make 6 medium sized muffins.
Cook in the oven for 25 minutes. Once your muffins are cooked through, remove from the oven and serve, adding a little bit of whip cream to your muffin. The best way to figure out how many muffins you should include in your day is to use your Custom Meal Plan as a guide to swap out your macros.

These muffins are great because you can easily make a batch and meal prep for the week and add one to your meals throughout the week. Just save one for each day, it will be like you are giving yourself a treat! You can even change up the fruit in the muffins to give you more variety.
I have also found that these make a great replacement for dessert and if you want to use it as this, make sure are planning for it and not consuming the muffins on top of your already planned out meals, otherwise, you may be adding unnecessary calories.
Give this recipe a try and let me know below what you think of them!
