Living a low carb lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to give up on delicious treats. It also doesn’t have to be hard to whip up something delicious. In this post, I share my experience with the Hold the Carbs Low Carb Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins.
Healthy snacks and desserts are possible. I’m not too fond of complicated recipes where I have to make a special low carb flour or purchase expensive ingredients. The Hold the Carbs Mix, made it so easy to mix the ingredients up, pour them into muffin cups and bake.
The result is delicious sugar-free, low carb Chocolate Chip Muffin I can enjoy with my coffee, as a morning on the go snack or for something sweet-tasting after dinner.
What You Need to Make Low Carb Chocolate Chip Muffins
Hold the Carbs Muffin Mix
Hold the Carbs Muffin Mix developed by a Canadian company has no sugar added. It has approximately 2g carbs per muffin. This mix is gluten-free, and you can prepare it with vegan ingredients.
Ingredients in the muffin mix: Almonds, Baking Powder, Erythritol, Salt and Stevia.
This product is available for shipping to the US and Canada from the Hold The Carbs website.
In Canada, you will also find these packages at Amazon.ca, low carb grocery stores and some health stores.
Sensato – Sugar-Free Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips
You can use any sugar-free chocolate chips, but I like the taste and size of these mini chips. Ingredient in the chocolate chips: Maltitol, Chocolate Liquor (processed with alkali), Cocoa Butter, Sorbitan Tristearate and Soy Lecithin (emulsifiers), Vanilla. Note these chocolate chips are not Vegan.
You can use any milk product you want or vegan ingredients if you’d like to make Vegan Chocolate Chip muffins. I used Neilson Trutaste 5% light cream, and they turned out fine. The cream is low in fat and sugar, so it kept my net carb count down.
Tools You Will Need
The only tools you will need for this is a mixing bowl, spoon or whisk, muffin pan and a cooling rack.
Making these low carb chocolate chip muffins was super easy. One important note you should add the chocolate chips after baking has started 2 – 5 minutes in so they do not sink to the bottom of the muffins.
