Cooking: GF Muffins

This post is a bit of a departure from the main WoW theme of the blog – it is a recipe for gluten free muffins!

This came from a tweet by @Pookachu_ which I then tweaked a bit.

The ones I made were based on what they described, although I added marshmellows to them which isn’t really in keeping with the original Keto intent of the original recipe!



Ingredients

This should make around 9 muffins.

  • 160g Almond flour
  • 30g butter
  • 2½tsp baking powder
  • 3Tbsp honey
  • 4x eggs
  • 2Tbsp mini Marshmallows
  • ¼tsp cream of tartar

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180C / GM4 / 350F
  2. Separate the egg yolks from their whites; set the whites to one side
  3. Combine the almond flour, butter, honey and egg yolks
  4. Blend in the baking powder and most of the mini marshmallows
  5. In a separate bowl, add the cream of tartar to the egg whites and beat them until you get soft peaks
  6. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the rest of the mix
  7. Spoon the mixture into muffin cases or a pre-greased muffin tin
  8. Bake for 20 minutes
  9. Cool on a wire rack

Notes

Fold the egg whites into the mixture

This is something I almost never do, so ended up refering to the video below for how best to do it!
