Apple and Bran Muffins

If you run out of ideas for a low carb breakfast ideas here is something for you. Delicious, very filling muffins that are full of healthy ingredients. Perfect not only for breakfast but also as an afternoon snack. I made it using mix of Splenda and Xylitol (cheaper version) and I used wheat bran (much lower in carbs than oat bran).  



Ingredients (for about 14 muffins):
·         75 g wheat bran
·         100 g Xylitol, powdered
·         10 g Splenda
·         60 g dry poppy seeds
·         3 tbsp. ground almond
·         3 tbsp. soy flour
·         100 g walnuts, roughly chopped
·         150 g coconut oil, melted
·         1 big braeburn apple, grated (about  120g)
·         4 eggs
·         1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
·         Pinch of cream of tartar
·         1 tbsp. Cinnamon
Preparation:
·         All of the ingredients should be at room temperature.
·         Preheat oven to 180C. Seperate egg whites from yolks and using electric mixer beat them with cream of tartar until soft peaks form.
·         Slowly add Xylitol and Splenda and continue whisking. Add the egg yolks and beat. Add bran, poppy seeds and mix using spatula.
·         Pour coconut oil into the mixture and mix all together. Fold in ground almond, soya flour, cinnamon and baking powder.
·         Fold in walnuts and apple.
·         Divide butter into muffin cases and bake for about 15-20 minutes ( check with the skewer if its baked)

Enjoy :-)
