In a food processor, grind 1 cup of the walnuts until finely ground but not pasty. Transfer to a medium bowl. Whisk in almond flour, soy flour, granulated erythritol, protein powder, coffee, baking powder, baking soda

walnuts.

Divide batter among prepared muffin cups and bake 18-20 minutes, or until set and a tester inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan.

For the glaze, whisk together powdered erythritol or xylitol and coffee. Drizzle over muffins.

Makes 12. Each muffin has a total of 13.9g
of carbs and 2.8g of fiber, but only 4.9g if you subract erythritol
