Low Carb Almond Breakfast Muffins

Low Carb Almond Breakfast Muffins

These muffins are moist and have a rich, nutty flavor. We recommend this recipe for anyone with Type 1 diabetes. Although they don't bake up very high, these muffins are low in carbs and are very filling. Since they are made with agave, peanut butter, and almond flour, their glycemic index is much lower than most breakfast foods. We've found can help reduce the post-breakfast blood sugar spike.
