Almond, Hazelnut and Raspberry Muffins

rasp muffins

 

Ripped from the pages of The Joy of Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Baking.

So, here I go with my personal opinion. I rate them 7.5 stars out of 10. Why? you ask. Because when I first took a bite I did not respond with, “Oh my stars, these are AWESOME!”

BUT the more I ate the more I appreciated the subtle sweetness allowing the flavor of the fresh raspberries to shine through. (I’m a sugar-holic and it’s kinda hard to give up all that sweetness) 🙂

Do I feel good about eating the muffins because they are so healthy and really do taste good? 10 out of 10 stars! Hopefully, my diabetic husband won’t finish them off before they get to their hiding place in the freezer. For my husband, out of sight–out of mind 🙂

These muffins are not the cheapest things to bake (at least the first time). They require stevia/spenda–that’s not too bad, until you get to the almond and hazelnut flour and the liquid stevia ($13); then you’re talking money if you don’t have a grinder to turn the nuts into flour. Oh, yeah, I substituted chestnut flour (real Italian) for the hazelnut flour. Hazelnut’s coming from Bob’s Red Mill on Monday 🙂

So, my first foray into baking from The Joy…. is a hit! I’m going to have to get myself a grinder. Can anyone suggest one that they believe is very good.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a
    very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
    me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Exceptional work!

      Hi. I didn’t design anything. I’m on the FREE package of WordPress. I can upgrade for more control, but I’m too new at blogging and writing for the internet to do anything on my own. My blog has just one of the many templates available to me. The only thing I was forced to learn was putting MENU headings and individual posts under those headings. I realized pretty quickly that just writing a blog that is just continuous is not going to cut it when I had too many posts to keep organized. I wish I had named my blog something different, and don’t know if I can change it at this point. I’d like to have my web site be padmescupboard instead of amentoliv. Oh well, maybe I’ll learn how to change that too without losing anyone who follows me. Have a wonderful day 🙂 Jan

    I do agree with all of the concepts you have
    offered for your post. They are really convincing and can certainly
    work. Still, the posts are very brief for beginners. May just you please prolong them a bit
    from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
