Default Bread/muffin substitute for low-carbers: The One Minute Muffin!

For low-carbers!

One Minute Muffin:

Serving Size: 1

1/4 cup flax meal (golden flax meal is best)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 packet splenda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 large egg
1 teaspoon butter

Put the dry ingredients in a coffee mug.


Then add the egg and the butter. Mix.

Microwave 1 minute (or more). Take out. slice, butter, eat.

Cream cheese would go nicely, too.

Notes: 11.1 total carbs, 8.8 fiber, for 2.3 net carbs.

The shape of this can be changed by making it in a bowl, it comes out more like a round piece of bread.

It can be "toasted" once it's cooked.

The cinnamon can be replaced, or it can be made savory. I would imagine that any sugar free syrup could be added. Many people have said that the recipe benefits from a pinch of salt. I personally replace the butter with 1 tsp melted coconut oil. Some people put a tbsp of greek yogurt or sour cream, some add a tbsp of pumpkin, others omit the cinnamon and add onion powder, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese.

There are a bazillion variations on this recipe at Low Carb Friends. They are all great!
