These tasty 2-bite morsels are a slight variation of my Strawberry Egg Puffs recipe. Make a batch of these for your honey for Valentine’s Day! If you don’t have the Nordicware pan I used, you can use any mini-muffin pan you have. These were a cinch to make and so good my husband just couldn’t stop. They are delightful with morning coffee. Sprinkle with powdered sweetener and serve them as a dessert with afternoon tea. These are suitable once you get to the berries rung of the Atkins Phase 2 OWL ladder. They are also OK for most Keto diets.
NOTE: If you are gluten free, use all gluten-free mix, as my Einkorn mix is not gluten free.
4 large eggs, beaten
¼ c. my Einkorn Bake Mix (or more Jennifer’s mix for gluten-free)
1 c. frozen strawberries, drained and chopped (or other berries if you like)
2 T. erythritol
2 T. Splenda, granulated
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 T. + 1 tsp. coconut oil
DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350º. Melt coconut oil in your mini muffin baking pan and brush 24 slots well with oil.
Beat the eggs in a small mixing bowl. Add the bake mix. You can use any low-carb bake mix you prefer. Add sweeteners, vanilla and chopped berries. Fold all together until smooth. Using a 2 T. measuring cup, spoon batter into mini muffin pan slots. Right is the Nordicware pan I used.
They will be nearly full to the brim. Don’t worry, Mine didn’t overflow in the pans, although they do temporarily rise above the top like a souffle…..and then fall a bit when done and cooled.
Pop into oven and bake for 16-18 minutes or until risen and firm in the center. Remove, cool a couple minutes and with knife tip, lift them out and serve while warm.
