* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.

* Use low carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
Once you have converted your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, you really don't want to add in those high carb standard chocolate. Chop up a low carbohydrate choccie bar into little pieces and use that in its place.
