Maple-Cinnamon Quick Muffin

Here’s a recipe for a Maple-Cinnamon Quick Muffin to help you navigate your Undoctored lifestyle, taken from the new Undoctored book. Although the Undoctored book contains many more ideas and strategies beyond those developed over the 6 years of the Wheat Belly experience, Undoctored carries on the tradition of providing healthy, grain-free, no-added-sugar low-carb recipes such as this Quick Muffin.

The Muffin Test

Muffin test

Here are two blueberry muffins. On the left is a conventional muffin weighing 131 grams. Because I purchased it in a bakery, no nutritional analysis was provided, but I estimated from similar blueberry muffins in which analyses are provided. Total carbs 63 grams, 3.1 grams fiber; net carbs = 59.9 grams.

On the right is a muffin I made from a Wheat Belly recipe using almond flour, coconut flour, coconut oil, eggs, and blueberries. (Yes, I browned it a few minutes too long.) I used the monkfruit/erythritol Wheat-Free Market Virtue sweetener, which yields no carbs for all practical purposes. Total carbs 121 grams, 70 grams fiber; net carbs = 51 grams in the entire batch that yielded 6 large muffins, or 8.5 grams net carbs per muffin, each weighing around 192 grams or nearly 50% heavier than the wheat flour muffin.
