Dont eat too many or you will be in the bathroom for days. Where can I find the carb count for the cream cheese muffins? Is it in a thread somewhere that I missed. Thanks anybody

Russell Stover's sf chocolates do the same to me...it is because they contain sorbitol and I believe maltitol....I cannot eat those or I end up using the bathroom for the remainder of the day and night.

Yes. Back when I ate them I had just started Atkins this was years ago. Didnt know what could happen with the malitol and etc until I had stuffed myself with it. My husband says he still fondly recalls "Low Carb Saturday", which went into Sunday and part of Monday. But I learned, lol.

Hi -- I made these last night -- OMG -- I am hooked my wife even tried one and loved it with her breakfast. I see these on my eating list in the future.

24 hours since I made them and only 6 left -- I need to slow down...

Also for you MYFITNESSPAL.COM folks -- I figured the nutritional info and posted on myfitness... listed as "home made with truvia -- cream cheese muffins"

I bought some generic cream cheese from walmart that had 9 grams of fat instead of 7 like the other does. I came home and didn't let it thaw at all so it was quite lumpy and I kept beating it with the hand mixer and it came out thick like never before but I used it anyways and they came out really good and thick and didn't even sink in! Not sure what made the difference but they taste a tad different but still so yummy! here my two pictures so you can see how they looked.

You can see the thickness of them. NOt sure if it was the cold cream cheese or the different brand but I love them! For fats then I had two of them, a cup of hwc with sugar free chocolate and some macadamia nuts, lots of fat!

My latest experiment: I mixed about half a cup of peanut butter into the batter before baking. Delicious.

Also, there was one time the result tasted off... and I realized I had forgotten to add the Spenda. I had some "no sugar added" raspberry jam in my fridge; a teaspoon of that on top of each solved that problem.

To get exact counts for what you make, look up the nutrients for each ingredient add them all up for the whole recipe, then divide those numbers by the number of muffins you made. That will give you precise counts for the item you made and any adjustments/additions you made to it. Its a little work, but once done, as long as you make it the same way each time, you know them and can add them to MFP.

I did put it in MFP and I got 151 calorie, 2 carbs, 13 fat and 4 protein per one muffin and I wanted to check with others to see if that is close at least.

I made them, with 1 egg, and with 1/4 c eryth and 1/4 c raspberry SF splenda syrup. They smelled great, and my son enjoyed licking the beaters ... they poofed way up and fell way flat, now chilling overnight.

I am assuming the carb count etc is not too different from straight cream cheese. I made 10, so one serving is likely to be 200 kcal.

Something is wrong with the image URL . . . it has 8038 characters which is about 8000 too many! Did you use the Manage Attachments option at the bottom of the Post Message box? Try that & see if it works.

I made these today and I do see a problem with them. I ran the nutrition calcs. and I got 3g carbs each using the store brand cream cheese. The problem is that it will be really hard to eat only 1 or 2 at a time, they are so good..........:hungry:
I did eat one and put the rest in the fridge but they are calling me. :)

i made 6 of these today for the first time.. They aren't too bad, kind of remind me of custard and are really tasty.. even the friends I'm staying with until thanksgiving liked them and they usually don't like things with artificial sweetner in them. Added some sugar free pumpkin flavored syrup (for flavoring coffee, tea etc I got from Target, though probably not enough since didn't taste pumpkinish about 2 tsp, ah well, next time i will try more.

so i tried the pumpkin version of this today.. though I did it a little different.. I didn't pour it into a muffin pan, instead I poured it into a silicone pie mold and baked it that way.. it took about 40 min at 325 to be done, but i think it was worth it. I'd say that it came out rather light and fluffy and quite delicious..
