1-minute muffin

Updating of the 1-minute muffin page!  I have done a couple more versions of this staple.

1 Minute Muffin

Super, quick and easy breakfast or snack. This is a recipe that is very similar to the ones seen on low-carb forums, but I don’t do artificial sweeteners. *I don’t know the actual originator of the low-carb version as I have never found it*
1/4 cup flax meal (26 grams)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg
1-1/2 tsp oil

Mix and microwave for 1 minute. We used a silicon large muffin cup. This was just like a muffin!

Without toppings: 240 calories, 18 grams of fat, 11 g of carbs, 9 g of fiber, 12 g of protein


I then started playing around with the recipe and came up with these versions:
Variation: Pumpkin 1 Minute muffin
For a lower fat muffin:

1/4 cup flax meal (26 grams)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg
1 tbsp of canned pumpkin

Microwave for 80 seconds.  Top with cream cheese frosting for a real decadent breakfast. Yum! I think I liked this variation better than the original. More moist.  This was split in half and topped with peanut flour mixed with water (like PB2)

Without toppings: 195 calories, 13.5 grams of fat, 10 g of carbs, 8.5 g of fiber, 12 g of protein


Applesauce low sugar 1-minute muffin
1/4 cup flax meal (26 grams)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg
1 tbsp of applesauce

Mix all, put into silicone muffin cup (jumbo) or in a small bowl.  Microwave for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes.

This was split and topped with the rest of the 4oz applesauce cup and some toasted unsweetened coconut.

Without toppings: 195 calories, 13.5 grams of fat, 10 g of carbs, 8.5 g of fiber, 12 g of protein

For another variation – try using a waffle iron to cook the batter.  We call this the 1-minute “muffle”, although it does take a few minutes to cook instead of 1. Don’t overcook or it will be tough, I would say about 2 minutes or so.

This ‘muffle’ is topped with an apple cranberry topping found here.
