Cream Cheese Muffins

2 8oz. pks. philadelphia cream cheese
1/2 cup sweetener (I use spenda)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Soften cream cheese about 40 seconds in microwave. Add other ingredients. Beat with mixer till smooth. Pour into 12 muffin pans lined with the papers. Bake at 350 for 20 min.

These sink in the middle a bit when they cool, so that is a good place to top with sugar free jam once out of the oven.

The sinking in the middle isn't as bad if you turn the oven off before they are completely done and let them stay in teh oven to cool.

They taste very good, though, and that is what matters!


Here are some falvor variations to try, also:

1) Add:

1/4 Cup sugar free maple Syrup
1/4 C. Splenda
on the tops, sprinkle a combo of Cinnamon and DiabetiSweet Brown.

2) Put sugar free jam on the top before baking

3) Add in some frozen berries

4) Blend about 2 cups heavy whipping cream with 1/2 packet sugar free chocolate jello pudding and 1/4 cup of Splenda. Whip until very thick, but not butter! Spread on top of each muffin as an icing or topping

5) Lemon whipped cream topping, mix together:
one-fourth of a tub of Crystal Light Lemonade drink mix and cup of whipping cream. WHip with mixer and spread on cooled muffins

6) Add 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut to the batter

Oh My Goodness.....These sound like little pieces of heaven!!!

Do you have a carb count on them?

Adding the berries sound really good, too!!

Thanks for sharing!!

43 carbs for the entire basic recipe with no additions. 3.6 carbs per muffin using granular splenda. Granular splenda has alot of fillers in it... 24 carbs per cup. If you use the liquid splenda or liquid stevia as the sweetener, those sweeteners have 0 carbs. (liquid splenda can only be purchased online but stevia can be purchased in grocery stores in the healthy section)

If you use the splenda quick packs (looks like a koolaid packet and sold next to the koolaid in the grocery store, there are much less fillers than the granular splenda) you can reduce the total by 10.5 carbs. With the splenda quick pack (you use half the pack or 1/2 tsp) the carb count would be 2.7 carbs per muffin.

I know this is alot of info but I wanted to cover all bases on the sweetener options, and figured most would use splenda, so I wanted to mention the various forms/types of splenda.

Hope this helps!

Remember to adjust carb counts if you add any of the things from the variations part.

These are yummy by the way!
