Jam Filled Muffins – buttery and delicious

Jam filled muffins sound good right? And if you add buttery on the same recipe it can only be good!!

The muffin recipe is a variation of my Keto Queques https://heelsandspices.com/2019/03/the-humble-keto-queque/ that are so delicious, but they are even simpler to make, and as delicious.

I upped the game by adding a dollop of home made jam, in my case I used both guava jam and berry jam. They turned out moist, delicious and so buttery.

The jam is actually really easy to make:

I blitzed 4 guavas, with 1 tbsp lemon juice, sweetener to taste and 1/2 cup of water in a blender, passed the mix through a sieve to remove the seeds and than took it to the stove to simmer until it reached the desired consistency. This recipe also works for the berry jam.

So here you have, my jam filled muffins, so perfect for a treat, afternoon tea, or just when that desire for a sweet kicks in.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did
