Low Carb Muffins and Brownies from ThinSlim
Whilst most of us can live without sugary cakes and cookies in our diet, it is nice every now and then to treat ourselves to something sweet without having to worry about jeopardizing our low carb diet.
Thankfully, there are a number of companies around that make low carb alternatives to muffins, cookie and cakes, but sadly a lot don’t quite achieve the same texture or taste of their high-carb, high sugar counterparts. Many people complain of a ‘too spongy’ texture or that their cakes are too dry and crumbly.
The fantastic people at ThinSlim bake some fabulous low carb muffins and low carb brownies that are so delicious we have added our own taste guarantee. Their recipes produce muffins and brownies that are deliciously moist, denser and less spongy than other low carb baked goods.
Not only this, but they are also 50% lower in calories than traditional high carb muffins and brownies, 80% lower in net carbs and have 50% more fiber and protein.
ThinSlim use erythritol to sweeten their products instead of alternatives such as maltitol and splenda, which have a tendency to leave an aftertaste and create rises in blood sugar levels.
Erythritol is the only sweetener that doesn’t cause GI distress, as it is absorbed into the bloodstream in the small intestine and then passed through the body in its original state via the urine. Because erythritol is usually absorbed before it gets to the large intestine it shouldn’t cause any laxative side effects that other sweeteners such as xylitol or maltitol can.
