Last week my neighbor took me to a farmer's market that I'd not been to before. It was a wonderfully sunny day, and the place had a great atmosphere. As I stocked up on everything from summer squash to eggs to smoked fish, at one stall I found some redcurrants! I don't think I've ever seen redcurrants for sale since I moved to the US, so I snapped up a punnet pretty quickly!Low Carb Redcurrant Muffins - a sugar free and gluten free sweet treat!

Redcurrants contain about 10g net carbs per cup – but you can get a lot in a cup!!! I love just taking out one of the stems, and pulling off all the berries for a quick sweet snack. However, I wanted to make *some* kind of recipe with them!

I've made blueberry muffins before (although I used a low carb baking mix for that recipe), and I just love the pop of the berries! So I figured redcurrants might work well too – and they did! Within the muffin you find little pockets of intense fruit – they're REALLY good!

So if you ever see redcurrants for sale – get some! You could also make a low carb redcurrant margarita or a redcurrant and raspberry sorbet!

How to Make Low Carb Redcurrant Muffins

To prepare the batter, mix together almond flour, low carb sweetener (I used Lakanto, but Swerve would also work well), and baking powder in a large bowl. Low Carb Redcurrant Muffins - a sugar free and gluten free sweet treat!

Add in melted butter, unsweetened almond milk, and beaten eggs. Stir the batter until it is fully combined, then fold in the redcurrants. Oh – and the speediest way to get the redcurrants off the stalk is by dragging a fork down the stem!Low Carb Redcurrant Muffins - a sugar free and gluten free sweet treat!

Divide the mixture between six muffin cups (lined with paper or silicone liners).
