Blueberry Mini Muffins


In my new Babycakes Cupcake maker...because it is too hot for an oven. So far I like all the low carb treats I have made in this machine. Only the Jiffy Mix muffins was an epic failure. The good stuff works great.

More later, but I am out the door for some back to school shopping for my college boys.

Blueberry Mini Muffins


1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup ZSweet  (or alternate sweetener)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil
3-4 fresh blueberries per muffin


Mix dry ingredients well. Combine eggs and coconut oil and stir unto dry ingredients. Fill muffin tins and place 3-4 blueberries on top of batter.  Bake until lightly browned.


I got 14 mini muffins from the Babycakes appliance.These go together really quickly, and bake up even faster with this little machine! Since the so called quick mix, full of sugar and wheat did not perform nearly as well, I think I will just keep to the good stuff for all my guys, low carb or not!

Lisa, your muffins sound delicious and look so cute! I have never heard of such an appliance. Interesting! We were on the same wavelength at the same time with our blueberry muffins. Too funny that.

Jennifer--I am certainly not the baker you are, but I do love gadgets. Here is where I got mine.

I was wondering what size muffin liners you used. I went online to Walmart to see about buying one, and in the reviews people complained that the mini liners were too small, and the regulars were too large. ??

What's the real scoop? ;-)

I am not using cupcake liners at all. I am just spraying the wells with some Baker's Joy--the spray with a little flour in it. I have no sticking issues at all. I thought my machine was going to come with papers, but it did not. It is true. Minis are a little too small and standard are really too big. I think most of the time I will do without papers. For cheesecakes or brownies, you can use mini muffin cups. I tried them, and they expand to fill the well, it just leaves the liner a little short on the sides. I refuse to pay the shipping for liners from Babycakes, and I have not found any the same size that don't have to be ordered in commercial quantities. Bummer, huh. I did a little research and found some calling this muffin size a "midi", but I can't find any liners to match that term. I thing a 1 1/2 x 1 would fit fine, I just can't locate them. Keep me posted if you find any.
