Way back in the 1970s when I was an office manager for a popular jewelry store we used to have store meetings. We had them every single Saturday morning. Since I was in high school at the time and since I was technically not scheduled for Saturday mornings, I hated getting up and wasting one of the few opportunities I had to sleep in.
The one saving grace was that the store manager stopped and got danish. He always got at least one cheese danish and made sure I got it. When you’re 17, cute, and have a great figure you rule the world. Dang, I miss those days.
And with low carb I’m hoping to get at least two of those characteristics back!
I don’t know what it is about them that I love but this low carb cheese danish muffin recipe really gives me the flavor I am looking for. It’s a totally different texture so don’t get mad when you don’t have those buttery layers. The texture of these is definitely muffin-y. It is rich, butter, spicy, and sweet?? perfectly balanced by the rich, tangy cream cheese. This recipe makes two, for a total of about 6 net carbs. They are filling – I can eat just one and be full.

I had a slip the other day after having done so well. I had a particularly difficult meeting to attend and my sweet husband took me out for lunch and drinks afterward. I had two pretty high carb beverages but I am back on track it was only a one time slip and I like to call those moments “life”. How are you doing on your low-carb journey?
Swerve is a great tasting, natural sweetener that measures cup-for-cup just like sugar! It doesn’t affect glycemic levels and is made from all natural ingredients. I like to mix sweeteners so I also use a stevia-erythritol blend. I added a few drops of English toffee flavored liquid stevia drops to add more flavor. You can use all of any granular sweetener you use instead of using several like I do. I just don’t think the flavor is as good.
