In keeping with September being PCOS Awareness month, I found this cinnamon mini muffin recipe on a PCOS support message board from SoulCysters. Recipes suggested by members are either found elsewhere on the web, or as in this case, original. Most are mostly carb-controlled, which help to combat insulin resistance – a complication of PCOS. But you don’t have to have PCOS to try it out – and who doesn’t like a cute little mini muffin?
(Makes 24 Muffins)
1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, Melted
3 Large Eggs
1 Cup Splenda (granular For Baking, Not Packets.)
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 Tsp Almond Extract
2 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
1 Cup Vital Wheat Gluten Flour (Suggested resource: Bobsredmill.com)
1/2 Cup Quaker Oat Bran Hot Cereal (dry, uncooked)
2 Tsp Baking Powder
2 Tablespoon Almond Meal (Optional. Only adds 2g carb per entire batch)
Preheat oven to 350°. Melt Butter in Pyrex (or similar) mixing bowl in microwave.
Beat-in by hand eggs, splenda, vanilla extract, almond extract, dash salt. Add cinnamon.
Add remaining ingredients and mix by hand just until all ingredients are incorporated.
Spoon into greased (with cooking spray) or nonstick muffin pan. Note batter is extremely thick. (DO NOT use paper liners.) Bake in 350°F oven for approximately 30 minutes.
