Magic Muffins for a Low Carb Lifestyle

Frustrated with no bread on your low-carb diet?

I hear you and I feel your pain! I’ve been living the low-carb lifestyle for over seven years this time around. I’ve lost weight before but failed to keep it off because I am so easily tempted to the yeast-side of food. Bread is my downfall. I won’t say that it doesn’t still tempt me when I go out to restaurants that have wonderful homemade bread and rolls, but at least I can control what I eat at home.

First off, most pre-made, low-carb bread products that I’ve tried haven’t had much flavor and/or they were too expensive. I do know a couple of places where you can order some very good pizza dough and other items, but they are a little pricey and you have to wait to get them. 

What if I tell you that you can make a simple one-minute bread at home that is satisfyingly delicious and only requires a few different flour choices? Well, I can tell you tasty low-carb bread is not out of your reach and it is not difficult to make.

The low-carb Magic Muffin is a quick-to-make batter bread that you can do in single servings with a variety of flavors. It is sturdy enough to hold up to a hamburger or can make a delicious dessert cake. Does that sound terrific to you?


ABOUT THIS BOOK

Magic Muffins for a Low Carb Lifestyle is part of the LC-15 Series of mini-cookbooks that offer 15-plus recipes of one related type. My two previous ones are Mexican Food for a Low Carb Lifestyle and Breakfast Choices for a Low Carb Lifestyle. Like those two books, this one centers on a theme and that is the quick batter bread made from six basic ingredients with additional seasoning and other add-ins to make fabulous muffins from savory to sweet. You’ll be surprised at what you can make in about five total minutes from start to finish.

  • Here’s a partial list of the various muffins included in the booklet:     
  • Coconut Flour Magic Muffin     
  • Cornmeal Magic Muffin   
  • Almond Chocolate Magic Muffin     
  • Blueberry Magic Muffin     
  • Garlic Onion Magic Muffin Toast     
  • Magic Muffin Cinnamon French Toast     
  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Magic Muffin   
  •  … and the list goes on.

The best part is they are all low carb, under 6 net carbs per serving, and taste great! I started with the basic Muffin-in-a-Minute that Atkins published on their website and kicked it up a few notches to my own version of the muffin. I have tried every recipe in this booklet and they are among my favorites. While the low carb flours don’t taste like the wheat flours, they have a taste all their own and, to be honest, I find them more flavorful than many of the commercial breads you buy.

Don’t you owe yourself the chance to have a hamburger on a low carb bun that will stand up to it? You can do that with one of these muffins! I’ve even made grilled cheese sandwiches and personal pizzas with them.  Remember… low carb doesn’t have to be boring!
