Helpful Tips and FAQs

Substitutions

Sweeteners

I always (when possible) use Splenda granulated Sweetener as it does not impact my blood sugar. Using sweeteners that contain sugar alcohols impact my blood sugar negatively. I am told that this is not an issue for most diabetics, but to avoid any possible issues and remain diabetic-friendly, I use Splenda. If you choose to switch to a different sweetener, be mindful of the impact of other sweeteners, especially if you aren’t sure if it can raise your blood sugar or have never used it before.

Alternate Flour

King Arthur keto Wheat Flour is an excellent low-carb substitute for all-purpose flour. If you need to find an alternative you can use Carbnalose Flour. If using Carbalose flour, be sure not to skip the sifting, this is very important in the overall recipe. Carbalose Flour will require extra liquid ingredients, such as egg whites.

Yogurt

Yogurt provides extra moisture and flavour. I am using plain all-natural unsweetened yogurt. You can substitute it with a sugar-free Greek yogurt if you prefer or a sugar-free yogurt of your choice.

Keto Almond Cranberry Crunch Cereal

This low carn cereal is perfect for the crunchy crumble topping used on our Sugar Free Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins. Adding the crumble topping not only adds great flavour but makes your muffins a great dessert or coffee break treat. You can choose to bake the muffins without the crumble topping if desired.

Can I make this recipe a Cake?

NOTE: Any alteration to serving sizes and ingredients will alter the nutritional information.

Yes, you can, but the cake may be quite dense. You will need to extend the baking time considerably. Insert a toothpick into the center of the cake. When it comes out clean, remove it from the oven. Drizzle some sugar-free drizzle icing over the top.

Storing Instructions

These muffins should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a couple of days. To keep longer, store refrigerated for up to 5 days.

Freezing: These muffins can be frozen in n airtight container for up to one month. For best results, wrap each muffin in plastic wrap before placing it in a container.

When serving, pop a muffin in the microwave for a few seconds to take the chill off, as they are best served warm.
