1/2 cup butter (soft)
4 oz cream cheese (soft)
1 cup granular splenda (or liquid splenda equiv.)
5 eggs room temp
2 t lemon extract
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 t vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup pecan flour
1 t baking powder

Cream butter, cream cheese and splenda.
Add eggs 1 at a time making sure to beat well between eggs.
Add extracts and zest.
Mix in flours and baking powder.
Bake at 350 until golden brown and firm to the touch. I used cupcakes(made 12) but you can use a loaf pan or 9 in round cake pan (make sure whatever pan you use is oiled).

The pecan flour - did you purchase this or make your own?

This looks great!!!!!

I purchased it. I bet if you grind the heck outta pecans you could do it.

I have about 1/2 cup of pecan meal/flour in my fridge right now and this sounds like a great use for it!!

Would finely ground almonds work or is there a specific reason for pecans? I really wanna try this with poppy seeds added.

YOu can do almonds. I would go with ground as fine as almond flour though..

Hi Sherry, just wanted to post some feedback on these. I didn't have the lemon flavoring or pecans ( I forgot them at the store! ) so I just made them with a little more vanilla and almonds. They came out wonderful as a basic muffin. I couldn't think of anything to put in the batter so I just baked them and then smeared some sugar free jam on. Really yummy! This is definately a keeper. I'm going to try out lots of different flavorings.
