This is a lovely light, moist strawberry muffin made from almond flour. The flavour combination of strawberry and vanilla make this a great summer muffin.
Perhaps for an afternoon tea or something to eat whilst you watch the tennis as Wimbledon. Or you can just munch the lot in one evening as we did under the guise of taste testing!
I stepped away from my beloved coconut flour and make muffins from another low carb flour for a change! These strawberry muffins are pretty to look at and tasty to eat.
I used honey for the initial batch which made the muffin very moist but was not carb friendly. So another batch was made with a sugar substitute which was just as delicious. I used almond flour that is basically ground blanched almonds. The muffin batter will be very runny, but don’t panic..it cooks well into a moist muffin!
I will have to try and make these with my beloved coconut flour but if you are going to try this I would recommend that you increase the eggs and add a dash of extra water to keep the mixture as moist as this recipe.
