Basic Muffin Recipe

BASIC MUFFIN RECIPE

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 ⅓ cup (287 g) all-purpose flour
  • 4 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup (150 g) Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (120 ml) oil of choice (canola oil, avocado oil, melted coconut oil, or melted butter)
  • ¾ cup + 2 tbsp (210 ml) buttermilk

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F
  2. Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin cups and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener, eggs, vanilla, oil, and buttermilk.
  5. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing until just combined. Be sure not to over mix the batter. Having a few lumps or streaks of flour in the batter is okay!
  6. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling a little more than ¾ full.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes at 450°F. Without opening your oven door, reduce the oven temperature to 375°F and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out with just a couple of crumbs.
  8. Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Try the following variations for different muffin flavors.
