Low carb banana muffins have just 2.1 carbs each and are so yummy!!!! From Lowcarb-ology.com

I think that one of the keys to maintaining a low carb diet is variety. I don’t think I could last very long just eating poached eggs and bacon as much as I love bacon. I’ve been trying very hard to take my favorite recipes and recreate them into low-carb friendly foods. One of my favorite breakfast foods has always been muffins and especially banana muffins. I really, really miss bananas and I am not going to try to convince you that these taste like fresh banana muffins made from real bananas. They don’t. But they taste a whole lot more like bananas than poached eggs do. 🙂

This will stick like crazy to your muffin pans. Use silicone muffin cups for the best results or make sure you really grease the muffin tins. I had a really hard time getting these out in one piece! Be sure to let them cool for about 5 minutes or they’ll fall apart. Use the white stevia powder to adjust the sweetness — too much xylitol gives it a weird aftertaste. You could also use your favorite non-sugar sweetener if you like as long as it’s a cup for cup measure.

I used Isopure Banana flavor protein powder but you could use another one if you have a favorite. Also, when you mix the batter up it will be pretty thin. Be sure to let it stand for at least 5 minutes to thicken up. Doing that will keep the coconut flour from being dry in the finished muffin. These are seriously buttery and tender. I added chopped pecans but you can leave them out if you want to.

Watch them carefully. I noticed that when I made the muffins the tops browned way faster than I expected.

Silicone muffin cups or silicone muffin pans are essential in this recipe. You’ll also need banana protein powder and a good sugar free banana flavoring.

    Since the glycemic load of 120g of banana is only 12, I am wondering if there is a way to add them to this recipe and have the bread part still hold together? I’m sure I would need to adjust the liquids, but can you suggest how?

    1. The are some of my favorites! I keep them in the freezer for breakfast… just about 20 seconds in the microwave!
