Cooking Tip

This recipe was redeveloped to take soy flour out of the ingredients list in February 2024. Note that undercooking these muffins can result in the cooled muffins caving in instead of having rounded tops. For gluten free baking such as this recipe, the egg proteins must be fully cooked in order to hold their shape once cooled. We love the idea of customizing this recipe to make it your own! If you add any ingredients, just be sure to keep an eye on net carbs.
