  • Cashew Butter Muffins

    I was in a baking mood, so I tried this recipe from a Specific Carbohydrate Diet site:


    by Jody

    1 cup cashew butter

    2 small bananas

    2 eggs

    1/2 tsp baking soda

    1 tsp apple cider vinegar

    Blend cashew butter and banana in food processor until completely blended.

    Add eggs and blend again.

    Add 1/2 tsp baking soda, blend again.

    Add 1 tsp vinegar, blend again.

    Divide batter into 12 cupcake paper lined muffin tins.

    Bake at 400 for 10 minutes.

    These muffins even had little air pockets in them like regular ones.

    Light and fluffy, not at all heavy.

    They came out very well! I folded in some organic, fresh blueberries for half the batter, and those were especially good. I think I would add some spices next time (cinnamon? cardamom? nutmeg?). BTW, I don't have a food processor, so I just mixed it all by hand--Grok on!

    Some of the other recipes look pretty good--those folks are definitely into grain-free, but they do go for some cheese/yogurt and they're very big on honey.

    mmm sounds good I cant eat cashews though but I am wandering how it would work with almond butter instead.

      Sounds delicious AND easy! I will have to try that this week. I calculated the nutritional information on Fitday, so if anybody cares to know, one muffin would be about 145 calories, 10g fat, 10g carb, and 5g protein. I wonder if some vanilla whey powder would make it taste any less good?
