Low Carb Breakfast Muffins!

We love breakfasts on the go (mostly because we love sleeping in!).

Breakfast muffins are one of the most versatile breakfasts we can imagine. They’re easy to make, easy to carry, can be tailored to anyone’s tastes and store perfectly in the freezer. It’s so convenient to make a batch of muffins to last weeks in the freezer. Instead of cooking a breakfast every morning before work or school, just pop a muffin or two onto the kitchen countertop and they’re ready for you in the morning!

They’re also a great lunch or snack to keep at work when you need a quick, low carb option.

Of course, most muffins are the opposite of low carb, having upwards of 60 grams of carbs in just one! The muffins sold in stores are also often full of sugar, chemicals and preservatives. It’s always better to make your own- not to mention more cost efficient!

These currant flaxseed muffins are made with ground flaxseeds for a powerful source of omega 3 essential fatty acids, lignans, antioxidants and fiber. Their high fiber content helps keep the net carb count for these breakfast muffins low- each one of our currant flaxseed muffins has 1.2 grams of net carbs each! You can easily enjoy a few of them for a filling breakfast that’ll keep you full for hours.

These low carb breakfast muffins are dense and moist with pops of tangy sweetness from the delicious, red currants we added. Red currants are full of fiber and electrolytes! They’re also relatively low in sugar. A whole cup of red currants has about 12 grams of net carbs. We added half a cup of red currants into the muffin batter and the warm bursts of sweetness really put these muffins over the top for us!

You can also add some nuts to the currant flaxseed muffins for crunch and even more yummy fat and vitamins! We recommend walnuts, almonds, cashews or pecans. Enjoy these yummy and refreshing low carb muffins with a spread of butter, coconut oil, peanut butter, or sugar-free pancake syrup!
