Low Carb Muffin Mix Review: Simple Mills Banana Muffin & Bread, Chocolate Muffin & Cake, Pumpkin Muffin & Bread


I found this variety pack of almond flour muffins on Amazon for $25.89 and since I had never had anything made with almond flour before, I figured I would try this before buying almond flour and everything else I would need to make these kinds of muffins myself. I know the price is kinda high but I was curious if they would be worth it. 

I made the pumpkin muffins first and even though the box says it makes 12, it only made 9 muffins for me. And you can see that they are kinda small muffins at that. I will say that they were good. They are moist, soft and smelled great. But they didn't taste like pumpkin at all, they do however taste like pumpkin spice. This is not to say that they tasted bad because they were actually really good. My grandson loved them too and they are low carb which is good for me. 

Each muffin is 90 calories and 14 grams of carbs.

Next I made the Banana muffins and again, they are soft, moist and tasted great. They don't taste exactly like a banana bread would but it was close. This box of mix made 12 muffins. I loved them and would definitely make these again. 

Each muffin is 90 calories and 14 grams of carbs. 

The chocolate muffins were definitely the best ones of the three. The box of mix made 12 muffins. They have a nice chocolate taste to them and again they are so soft and moist. They were sweet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth and my daughter liked these while she didn't like the other two. I would definitely make these again. The chocolate muffins were the ones that were the most crumbly too. 

Each muffin is 110 calories and 14 grams of carbs. 

If you buy any of these, the directions say to use paper liners in your muffin tins and I highly recommend that as these stuck to my non stick muffin tins even when I used a cooking spray or a thin coating of oil and flour. The paper liners worked the best. Wait for them to cool completely before trying to pull the paper liners off and they won't stick as much. 

Would you try these? Have you tried anything made with almond flour?
