  • 1/2 c Almond meal/flour
  • 1/2 c Just Like Sugar (or Stevia, Splenda, etc)

  2. Any tips on using powdered Stevia instead? 3/4 cup seems like a lot, and I’ve heard that it leaves a bitter-ish aftertaste at some point. Also, I plan on making only 6 cupcakes to start with, and will halve the qtys. I was wondering if putting them in a toaster oven on the Conv. Bake setting at 350 would be okay?
    Thanks.

    • Hmm… I’ve never tried using the Stevia in them, but I’m thinking they probably won’t turn out as well or taste as good. I think the Stevia will give them that funny aftertaste & not sure how the texture will be. Just Like Sugar is full of fiber & I think that kind of helps the consistency too, but I could be mistaken. As for the toaster oven on the Conv. Bake setting… may work, but I’m not sure. I’m not familiar with those. Best of luck. :)

  3. Just use powdered Stevia in mine. I only used one scoop of the tiny scoop it came with, seemed to be more then enough. If yours did not come with a scoop, just use a tiny pinch, to avoid the bitter after taste. Thanks for the recipe! Made these today for my best friends birthday. She has been doing the keto diet for a few months now and its nice to give her something not loaded with sugar and carbs, but still sweet and amazing.

  4. You mentioned that you used a “Can of Fat-free Reddi-Wip Whipped Topping”. According to the label 1 oz of this contains 7g carbs! Doesn’t this defeat the “low-carb” reason for the muffin? Or did I misunderstand the recipe? But the recipe does sound very good and I appreciate your posting it.

    • I never used a lot of the whipped topping when I ate them, plus it IS meant as a treat/dessert. You could always try making your own using heavy cream & some stevia or something to sweeten it though.

      • Ok, so I tried these today. ..amazeballs!!!! Here’s what I did differently: I didn’t have almond flour,so I used flax meal and finely chopped pecans to make up my 1/2 cup of dry ingredients. I added a tablespoon of lemon juice to the cream cheese mixture because I like the tartness, and I used the splenda/sugar blend. So there was one extra net carb in my recipe, but sooooo worth it. Thanks for the inspiration! Going low carb had been easier than I thought! I’m down 12 pounds in 3 1/2 weeks :-)

        • Amber, what plan are you following? I am trying to lose weight going low carb keto but with no success.I lost about 5 lbs then somehow gained it back and now I’m plateauing and havent lost anything for 2 weeks.
          any advice would be appreciated.

          • Hey Mary,
            I’ve kind of hit a plateau myself. I was doing low carb and very very meticulous about counting carbs…that’s how I lost at first. I lost about 14 pounds following that plan. Then I kind of got bored with the counting and gained back 4 pounds. So obviously it does work. As of now I’m trying to just keep my carbs lower, eat cleaner and exercise more. I feel your pain because it takes work. Just do your research and whatever plan you take on, prepare meals and snacks ahead of time….that is going to make or break your success until you get to where you want to be. When you are hungry you will eat whatever is on hand so stay ahead of your hunger! Good luck!
