Instructions

Muffins
  1. Preheat oven to 325F and grease 12 muffin tins well or line with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, Swerve Sweetener, protein powder, coconut flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in eggs, melted butter, almond milk and maple extract until well mixed. Stir in 1/2 cup of the walnuts.
  3. Divide batter between prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle with remaining chopped nuts, pressing lightly to adhere. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until set and golden brown. Remove and let cool.
Glaze
  1. In a small bowl, combine confectioner’s Swerve, cream and maple extract. Add just enough water to thin it out to a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled muffins.

Makes 12 muffins.
