Low Carb Atkins Cheesecake Muffins

Atkins Cheesecake Muffins (Induction Friendly)

2 (8 oz.) cream cheese

½ c. granular splenda or (1/4 cup davinci's syrup and a tsp. Fiberfit - for 0 carbs)

2 eggs

½ tsp. vanilla or preferred flavoring

Soften cream cheese about 30 seconds in the microwave. Add the rest of the ingredients. Beat with mixer until smooth. Pour the batter into 12 muffin tins that have been sprayed with a non-stick spray. Muffin papers sprayed with non-stick spray can also be used for easy removal. Bake at 350˚ for 20 minutes.

Carb Count: (if using granulated splenda)

Total Recipe: 26 carbs

Per Muffin: 2 carbs

Carb Count: (if using DaVinci and Fiberfit)

Total Recipe: 14 carbs

Per Muffin: 1 carb WOW!!

One carb per muffin seems too good to be true, but it is true. These are a terrific breakfast muffin and can be tweaked for a variety of flavors. During induction, use DaVinci syrups in a variety of flavors for a delicious change of pace. Here are a few examples for adding variety to the Atkins muffins:

¼ c. coconut DaVinci and 1 tsp. coconut extract

¼ c. coconut DaVinci with 1 tsp. pineapple extract (tastes like Pina Colada)

¼ c. Hazelnut DaVinci with a sprinkle of cinnamon

¼ c. Eggnog DaVinci with a sprinkle of nutmeg on top before baking (This is wonderful for Thanksgiving or the Christmas Holidays.)

Once induction is over, this recipe can be adapted to OWL (ongoing weight loss). Here is one variation for after induction:

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
