Chocolate Muffins - Low Carb, Sugar Free, Grain Free
I have been experimenting a lot with different chocolate muffin recipe combinations. I wanted them to have a very light, fluffy sponge as often LCHF and sugar free can be dense in texture and sometimes dry if you overcook them. They were perfect and the general opinion is people would be hard pushed to know they were made without grain or sugar. Try them for yourself, good luck!!
