Why You Should Try Carbquik Recipes

I love fruitcake. I mean, I LOVE fruitcake. To be honest though, I love all cake. While I have several low carb cake recipes, I was really craving a fruit cake. Now let me say this: these do not taste like fruit cake. These scuffins just taste good.

What are Scuffins?

They’re too moist to be scones and not wet and sugary enough to be muffins. Hence, scuffins. They taste like sweet American biscuits–with fruit in them. I would slather lots of butter on them and enjoy them that way while hot.

The next day, we toasted them and they were fantastic that way as well. It’s kinda hard to go wrong with these low carb scones or scuffins if you ask me.

Is Carbquik OK For Keto?

Yes, Carbquik is a great solution to replace flour if you’re eating a low carb diet. It has 16 carbs per serving, but it also has 14 grams of dietary fiber, so you’re only consuming 2 net carbs per serving when you make Carbquik recipes using it.

Can You Replace Flour With Carbquik?

Yes, you can replace flour with Carbquik. However, you can’t just use it as flour in any recipe and expect the same results.

Carbquik isn’t just a low carb flour replacement. It also has other ingredients they are:

  • Carbalose™ flour
  • Palm and palm kernel oil
  • Buttermilk powder
  • Baking powder
  • Egg white powder
  • Lecithin
  • Salt

How Do You Make Low Carb Scuffins?

  1. Soak one cup of dried mixed fruit (very little to no sugar added) in 2 cups of hot water for 30 minutes. Drain the water and add fresh hot water and cover for another 30 minutes. You are doing this to get rid of any sugar added to the fruit, and also to rehydrate the dried fruit.
  2. Using a strainer, allow the fruit to drain for 15 minutes.
  3. If using fresh fruit, skip this step.
  4. Preheat oven to 375F
  5. While the fruit drains and the oven preheats use a pastry cutter to cut butter into the Carbquik.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix egg, 1/2 cup heavy cream, almond essence, and sugar substitute.
  7. Add to dry mixture, and mix until well blended.
  8. Fold in rehydrated mixed fruit or fresh berries. Form into 12 balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Push down to flatten slightly and neaten edges.
  9. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes until the tops are browned and a toothpick inserted inside is clean. 

How Are These Low Carb Scuffins?

You will need to get CarbQuick flour to make these with. It’s an easy way to make these low carb without buying separate flours.

I don’t know, nutritionally, how to account for the fact that the initial wash, soak, and drain steps get rid of all the added sugar from the fruit. The recipe may have fewer carbs than I state on the nutrition label below.

What Fruits Are Good To Use In Carbquik Recipes?

When choosing the fruits to make Carbquik recipes with, you will need to keep some things in mind.

  • Different fruits have different carb counts. If you’re unsure as to which fruits are low-carb or Keto friendly, you can check out my post on the best Low Carb Fruits and Vegetables.
  • Dried fruits can be loaded with added sugars. Try and find dried fruits that have no added sugar to make these low-carb.

NOTES

  • I do not know how to account for the sugar being washed out of the fruit so this recipe may have fewer carbs than indicated if you follow the wash and drain steps I ask for.
  • If you use fresh berries, please recalculate macros.
  • I also do not know of a substitute for Carbquik
  • Almond milk can be subbed for HWC
  • I do not know how they will turn out without the egg
