Muffins to Slim By: Fast Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Bread & Muffin Recipes to Mix and Microwave in a Mug (Volume 1)
The Original Low Carb Minute Muffin Cookbook for weight loss, diabetic & gluten-free diets. Dozens and dozens of single-serving recipes bundled into a banquet of nutritious breads and muffins - as low as 0 net carbs! From Sweet (introducing luscious fruit substitutes) - to Savory to Meals in a Muffin, these innovative mix-in-a-mug recipes are quick to prepare and only moments away from fresh-baked and ready to enjoy. Savory Stuffin' Muffins rich with sautéed onions and celery, buoyant sandwich and hot-dog buns, Parmesan Salsa or Italian Herb, Banana Nut Bread or Strawberry Shortcake, warm and welcoming Cinnamon Apple Upside-Down Cake, Ricotta Comfort dinner rolls, delectable Red Velvet with cream cheese, Maple Bacon for breakfast, Pizza or a Reuben Melt for lunch- for starters! Those who are new to minute muffins prepared in a microwave may be disappointed that they aren't the same as "real" bread - those made with wheat/gluten flours and sugar, baked in an oven. They miss the texture that sugar and gluten add, and ask if they can substitute "real" flour and sugar -which of course defeats the whole purpose. I took the hard line and adhered strictly to low carb ingredients, and strived for such a wide variety of recipes that everyone should be able to find several that will become staples. If you don't mind a denser bread, you can reduce the baking powder from 1 tsp. to 1/2 tsp. Almond flour can be substituted for flaxseed. In other words, the recipes are versatile. Have fun with them! Each includes nutritional sidenotes and interesting health benefits of the ingredients. If you haven't allowed yourself bread for a long time, have had to wrap your hamburger in a lettuce leaf or dearly miss breakfast toast, these recipes are a real blessing. It's bread! We're actually eating bread, and it's more than okay - it's really good for us! White flour tastes like paste to me now, compared with the flavor of ground almonds and coconut flour. It's a new way of eating. Preparing healthful recipes is one of the most satisfying, rewarding things we can do for ourselves.
