LOW CARB FLAX MEAL BANANA MUFFINS

Only 3.8 net carbs per muffin!!! (remember to minus the fiber to get an accurate net carbohydrate count)
These low carb banana flax bread muffins are versatile and delicious! You can omit the banana and just use banana extract to make them even more low carb! Substitute berries or apples instead of the bananas.

Ingredients

2 cups flax meal- packed slightly
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons stevia
4 eggs beaten
1/4-1/2 cup water
1/3 cup olive oil or melted coconut oil
1/2 cup mashed banana
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Directions

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a medium bowl combine the flax meal, baking powder, cinnamon, sugar and salt
3. Make a well in the dry mix and add in the beaten eggs, water and olive oil or melted coconut oil
4. Stir together the wet and dry ingredients
(it looks wetter than most muffin recipes so don't be worried! AND they are quite brown from the flax meal)
5. Pour the batter into a greased muffin pan
6. Bake at 350 for 20-25 mins (mine only took 20)
7. Cool on your counter and then enjoy!
