Cranberry Muffins

Hi Friends,

I attempted to make 2 batches of these babies. They tasted Awesome but tended to crumble and fall apart very easy.

In the original recipe she uses shortening - which I REFUSE to use any longer so the first batch I tried coconut oil. The crumbled apart very easily.

The second batch I used butter - also tasted very good but crumbled less.

I think I figured out the trick to these. The second batch I used silicone muffin cups - like so... They pop out much easier.
You must let them  cool completely before trying to remove them from the cups - or pan that you use.

Then like most of the time with using these types of flours, REFRIGERATE them. They hold together great and taste even better cold - to ME anyway.

1/2 c. + 1 Tbsp. Almond Flour
3 Tbsp. Coconut Flour
1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 c. Non-Hydrogenated Shortening (I used coconut oil - or butter)
1/4 c. Xylitol or (Swerve)
2 Large  Eggs
1/4 c. Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 c. Fresh or Frozen Cranberries, Chopped


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. With coconut oil, grease the bottom and sides of muffin tins.
2. In medium bowl, sift together almond flour, coconut flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
3. In smal bowl, with electric mixer on medium, cream shortening and sweetener until fluffy. About 5 minutes.
**Seriously - I just used my food processor - it was easier.
4. To shortening add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each.
5. With mixer on low, add half the flour mixture and half the almond milk, mix, then add remaining and mix again.
6. Fold in cranberries.
7. Spoon batter evenly into prepared muffin tins and bake 20-22 minutes.
8. Remove from oven and let cool in pan on then remove muffins from pan and refrigerate.

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
