Low-Carb Muffins and Breakfast Muffins (and My Favorite Silicone Baking Cups)
This round-up features Low-Carb Muffins and Breakfast Muffins, plus a shout-out for the silicone baking cups I always use when I make them!
Even people who really like to cook don’t mind having meals ready in the fridge that you can just heat and eat, right? And if you’ve discovered the Weekend Food Prep category on my site, you know how I like to cook things on the weekend and eat them all week long. So today I’m reminding you about all these tasty Low-Carb Muffins and Breakfast Muffins, these muffins are all things I make regularly for food prep. And this post is also going to be a shout-out for My Favorite Silicone Baking Cups, because I wouldn’t be making muffins nearly so often if I had to scrub the muffin tins every time!
I’m dividing the muffins into categories:
- There are a few very tasty Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Almond Flour Muffins (and more muffins with almond flour will be coming!)
- There are several options for Low-Carb “Egg Muffins”, a name I came up with in the early days of my blog.
- And there are some Cottage Cheese and Egg Muffins, which are pretty low in carbs but not gluten-free. (They have the tiniest bit of flour; I think you could switch that for Almond Flour (affiliate link), Flaxseed Meal (affiliate link), or even Hemp Seeds (affiliate link) if you wanted a gluten-free version.
I love having muffins in the fridge to just grab, heat, and eat when I’m busy working. I hope these recipes will help you increase your breakfast muffins game; enjoy!
What Silicone Baking Cups Do I Use?
I now have three sizes of baking cups, and it can get confusing because different brands call the sizes by different names. But my smallest size is about 2.75 inches across and holds 1/3 cup, my middle size is about 3.5 inches across and holds 2/3 cup, and my biggest size is about 3.75 inches across but deeper than the others and holds 1 cup.
These Chambers Bay Baking Company Baker’s Dozen Silicone Baking Cups are my current favorite! I love the lighter colors and the fact that they give you 13 cups instead of 12. They don’t get discolored, and when sprayed with non-stick spray they release things perfectly. The Chambers Bay Silicone Baking Cups come in two sizes. STANDARD SIZE are the smaller size I described above, and JUMBO SIZE are the medium size I described above, and this is the muffin cup size I like best. (Just in case anyone is wondering, Chamber’s Bay has no idea I’m writing about their muffin cups and haven’t compensated me to feature them here!)
There’s no need to stress over having a certain size of baking cups though, it’s really a personal preference. Just realize that when you’re using a smaller size the baking time might be a bit shorter and when you’re using a larger size the baking time might be a bit longer. Now, let’s make some low-carb muffins!
