6 Benefits of Upside Down Bakery's Microwaveable Keto Muffins, Pancakes, and Brownies Cups
Making healthier choices isn't always easier, especially if following Keto or Low Carb diet. Our favorite sweets and treats often times have to be completely removed they are packed with sugar and refined carbohydrates.
The sugar and carbohydrates can have a terrible effect on our body and overall health. After consuming high sugar foods our blood sugar goes through the roof, only to come crashing down shortly after, leaving us with the dreaded "afternoon crash".
High sugar also triggers the body to begin producing insulin, a hormone that causes us to store fat. Sugar can also cause the body to go into an inflammatory state which can have long-term negative consequences that can lead to such things as heart disease, diabetes, liver disease, and cancer.
At Upside Down Bakery, we've created delicious sweets and treats that are not only low in sugar, but also low in refined carbohydrates, making them Keto, Low-Carb, and Diabetic-Friendly. Here are a few benefits of our products:
- Low Net Carbohydrates: with just 3 grams net carbs per cup, our keto muffin, pancake and brownie cups are perfect for low carb diets like Weight Watchers and Atkins. We've been able to get the carbohydrates lower by using low carbohydrate nut flours like Almond and Coconut Flour and using low-calorie sweeteners to replace the sugar.
- It's Healthy and Nutritious: Because we use low-calorie sweeteners and low carbohydrate flours, our products are a healthier choice when compared to the traditional versions of our products. Our main ingredient, Almond Flour, has received a lot of publicity in recent years... and for good reason! It's low in net carbohydrates and packed with nutrients like Protein, Fat, Fiber, Manganese, Magnesium, and Vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant. We don't use unknown ingredients
- Low Sugar and No Added Sugar: We use Allulose as the main sweetener in our product. What is Allulose you might ask? It's a low calorie sugar with the same clean, sweet taste you expect from sugar but without all the calories. Allulose exists naturally in very small quantities in things like grapes and figs and although it is absorbed by the body it is not metabolized like sugar, meaning it is nearly calorie-free. You can learn more about Allulose here. We also use a small amount of Monk Fruit, another natural, low-calorie sweetener. Our products contain only 1-2 grams of naturally occurring sugar that come from the almond flour and things like the dried Blueberry bits.
- Gluten and Grain Free: Because our muffin, pancake and brownie cups are made with Almond and Coconut Flour, we've been able to remove all of the Wheat Flour that is generally in baking mixes. Our mix is completely gluten and grain free and undergoes multiple gluten testing before leaving our facilities.
- No Artificial Anything: Take a look at our ingredients and you should recognize everything in our products. We don't hide anything. We use healthy ingredients that you can be sure to trust. Our products contain no artificial flavors or colors, no hydrogenated fats, and no added sugar.
- Simple and Easy to Use: Why make an entire batch of brownies when you only really want one! Our microwaveable cups are simple to use. Just remove the lidding film, add 2 tablespoons water and stir, microwave on high for 60 seconds! Take them with you for a warm, delicious and healthy snack.
