Low Carb Gingerbread Blender Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups almond flour
  • Sweetener equivalent to 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325F and line a muffin tin with parchment or silicone liners.
  2. Combine the sour cream, eggs, and vanilla in a large blender jar. Blend about 30 seconds. Add the almond flour, sweetener, cocoa powder, baking powder, spices and salt. Bland again until well combined. If your batter is overly thick, add 1/4 cup water to thin it out.
  3. Divide the mixture among the prepared muffin cups and bake 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown and firm to the touch.

Is there an alternative to almond flour or milk? I am allergic to tree nuts and find most diabetic friendly alternative recipes use nut based flours which I cannot use.
