Low-Carb Pound Cake Muffin Recipe

From the kitchen of Dr. Randall S. Hansen

What follows is a very easy recipe for making delicious no-sugar, low-carb almond flour pound cake muffins. It takes about 20 minutes of prep time, and another 15 minutes for baking.

Makes 14 muffins

This recipe is for basic, no-sugar pound cake muffins -- but we do like to add walnuts to the recipe. (And, of course, you can also put the batter into a pound cake pan instead of making muffins; cooking time will be longer.)

Ingredients
  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
  • 8 ounce cream cheese
  • 1 cup Splenda for muffins + 1 cup Splenda for topping/filling
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • Options
  • No-sugar chocolate chips
  • or
  • Cinnamon and splenda mix for swirl cake
  • Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 325F. Place cupcake papers in 2 six-muffin or 1 12-muffin muffin tin
    2. Cream sodftened (but not melted) butter, cream cheese, and Splenda until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
    3. Mix flour, baking powder, and flax seeds in another bowl; blend into the creamed mixture, mixing well
    4. Consistency should be cake batter; add additional almond flour, as needed.
    5. Add walnuits, and/or optional ingredients.
    6. Fill each muffin cup in muffin tins two-thirds with batter
    7. Bake 13 to 18 minutes, until a wooden pick, inserted in middle, comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 to 15 minutes, then remove pan and put on rack.
