What sweetener do I use to make these Mini Muffins?

These can be made with any zero point sugar substitute. Keep in mind not all sweeteners are the same..they may vary in sweetness and point values.

 Lakanto Baking Sweetener matches the sweetness of sugar, helping you fill your kitchen with a healthy cup-for-cup alternative to ordinary baking and cooking ingredients. If you use a different sweetener be sure to use the ratio for regular sugar that it states on back of the package. 

What is Lakanto Monk Fruit Baking Sweetener?

  • TASTES JUST LIKE SUGAR: Contains zero net carbs and zero calories.  Perfect for baking cookies, cakes, and other sweet, sugar-free treats.
  • LIFESTYLE FRIENDLY: Works with WW, ketogenic, diabetic, candida, paleo, vegan, low-carb, low-sugar, non-GMO, and all-natural diets.

What is the difference between Lakanto Monk Fruit Classic Sweetener and the Lakanto Monk Fruit Baking Sweetener? 

  • BETTER FOR BAKING: Lakanto Baking Sweetener dissolves effortlessly, retains moisture, can control cookie spread, and provides better browning for your desserts.
  • Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener provides the same great taste and sweetness you’ll find in Lakanto Golden and Classic Monkfruit Sweeteners, but it’s even better for baking. 

Bakes just like sugar, zero net carbs, and NO aftertaste!

How do you make these Mini Muffins?

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Spray a 24-cup mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, add the zero point white granulated sweetener, egg or egg whites, vanilla extract, water unsweetened almond milk, and unsweetened applesauce.

Whisk until just combined.

Gradually add pancake mix or self rising flour. Stir until JUST combined. 

Scoop batter evenly among prepared mini muffin cups. Fill each one a little over halfway full.

Press the add-ins down into the muffin batter of each muffin cup using the end of a utensil or toothpick and a few more into the top of the muffin batter so they’re still sticking out a bit. 

I like to swirl the cinnamon-sugar by adding a little on top and use the end of the spoon or toothpick to swirl it down into the batter.

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean. 

Let them cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing from muffin tin.

Serve on a platter/board with fresh fruit

 

 no sugar added chocolate chips, chopped nuts, fat free cool whip, and/or  sugar free syrup, if desired.

Hey there: I love your recipes. Just to be clear do we use brown sugar or white sugar monk fruit alternative? You mention both in your blog so I want to be sure but it seems like both would work. Thanks for posting. This is such a great idea!! So nice to have all the choices.

I really like these!! Made mine with blueberries—so good! I’m thinking of making them again and adding some cinnamon and mashed bananas to make banana bread muffins!

Hi Mari

Thank you so much. I'm so happy you love them. Yes, these muffins can be made with EITHER one. Sorry for the confusion. In fact, You can use the Classic, Baking, or Golden Monkfruit Sweetener or any other zero point sweetener.

Hope that helps! Thanks

My grocer only carries the original lakanto sweetener—I think it’s called granular. Would that be ok to use?

Lindsay Kehl

Yes, that is the classic sweetener and would work perfect!

Thanks

Can I use brown sugar or something else instead of lakanto?

Lindsay Kehl

Wednesday 10th of February 2021

Hi Wendy

Yes, you could definitely replace the zero point brown sugar sweetener for 1/3 unpacked regular brown. The point value would vary making them 1 smartpoint per mini muffin.

Thank you,

Linds
