Baking 101: How To Perfect The Best Moist Low Carb Apple Muffins
Can I use other apples or fruits to make this High Protein Low Carb Muffins recipe?
Definitely! Apples are a great choice especially because they're available all year round in Australia. We went for Pink Lady due to its sweet tanginess, but other apples like Fuji would work well too. You can also try this with Granny Smith green apples for a tart flavour.
If you want to experiment with other fruits, we recommend our Banana Choc or Passionfruit & Coconut recipes! The bitter yet rich indulgence of chocolate blends well with the banana, and you can even add some extra hazelnuts in for extra flavour and crunch. Passionfruit and coconut are a wonderful combination for summer and has a refreshing, tropical twist.
What other toppings can I use for these Low Carb Apple Muffins?
There is no one correct answer to this because it’s really up to you. Muffins are easily customisable and give you a fun chance to get creative! We opted for flaked almonds for the extra crunchiness and nutritious value such as dietary fibre and healthy fats. Other topping ideas are hazelnuts, pecans, shredded coconut, apple or pear slices. With their own individual muffin tins, you can make one batch (12 muffins) with a variety of different toppings!
How do I know when my Low Carb Apple Muffins are ready?
Insert a clean wooden skewer into the centre of the muffin and if it comes out clean, they are ready! Keep in mind that depending on the type of apples used, moisture levels will differ, and some might require a few extra minutes in the oven. This is completely normal, so just check again with the skewer till there are no crumbs attached.
How do I make these High Protein Low Carb Muffins vegan as well?
This recipe can be adjusted to cater towards a vegan diet! Everyone should get a taste of these Apple and Cinnamon Protein Muffins Simply substitute the eggs with our Vegan Egg Replacer. Following the instructions on the packet, each egg is equivalent to 1 Tbsp of egg replacer and 3 Tbsp of water.
Are these Low Carb Apple Muffins Gluten Free?
