From the Sugar Happy Kitchen: Keto Vegan Gluten-Free Carrot Pecan Muffins 7.68 Net Carbs

By Nadia Al-Samarrie

English Muffins originated in the United Kingdom when they baked pieces of bread with yeast and cooked them in a pan. It was not until the 1800s, when an ingredient, pearlash, was discovered, a rising agent mixing well with flour, that baking muffins went through a transformation.

 

Once the art of baking muffins became a new culinary art form, a fruit was added to the recipe. Legislatures in several State’s have an official State Muffin. 

 

In Massachusetts, it is the “Corn Muffin.” In New New York, the “Apple Muffin” was adopted, and in Minnesota, the “Blueberry Muffin” was named the official flavor.

 

I love having muffins in the morning with my coconut 1.5 net carb latte. Once I started my Keto diet, I was determined to create alternative recipes that are just as tasty as any bakery-purchased treat.  

 

If you cannot find these ingredients in your store- go to the Sugar Happy Kitchen Pantry Essentials online to order your ingredients.
