A low carb gluten free minute microwave muffin in a mug that take less than two minutes to prepare and cook. A tasty way to start the day!
No one wants to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, right?
I have a big case of spring fever and I’m looking for ways to spend more time outside doing the things I love.
So, I’ve been making more and more quick and easy low carb recipes.
Did you know it takes less than two minutes to bake a delicious low carb microwave muffin in a mug? Yup?
That means you can whip one up right before you leave in the morning and snack on it during the commute.
This basic minute microwave muffin in a mug recipe is so easy. I had the recipe memorized after my first try.
To make things even easier on busy mornings, you can pre-measure the dry ingredients in your coffee mug the night before.
If you have things ready, when you wake up, just add one egg and a teaspoon of oil and blend well.
Pop it in the microwave for a minute and have your instant breakfast muffin. Pretty cool, huh?
I admit that I wasn’t sold on the idea of a muffin in a minute at first.
To be honest, it sounded kind of gross to “bake” in the microwave. However, the convenience and taste of these magical mug cakes won me over.
Now that I’ve embraced this speedy way to make low carb baked goods, I’m ready to experiment some more with these tasty little minute microwave muffins in a mug recipes.
I’ve even tried the Sukrin cake in a cup mixes, but they contain sucralose (an artificial sweetener) and aren’t as low carb as I would like.
Mug cakes are so easy, it’s best just to make them from scratch.
If you like the convenience of a mix, you can certainly make your own. There’s a homemade chocolate mug cake mix at Fluffy Chix Cook here.
You’ll get two tasty servings from this low carb microwave muffin in a mug recipe.
I usually eat one warm with a bit of butter and save the other one for later. The leftover muffin reheats well in the toaster.
Even on morning when I have time to make bacon and eggs, I like to whip up a minute microwave muffin in a mug so I have a little “bread” on the side.
If you like Eggs Benedict, simply toast one of these minute muffins and use it as the bread.
Another thing I like to do with one of the minute microwave muffin in a cup is use it to make a low carb breakfast sandwich.
Each muffin is rather thick so you can slice it again for thinner halves.
For a breakfast sammie, simply put egg, cheese, and bacon between the two slices. Presto, a super easy to make bacon, egg, and cheese muffin sandwich!
You can also spread some chia jam on the low carb muffin in a minute.
There’s just so many things you can do with these quick and easy minute muffins. It would be impossible to list them all!
I’m so glad that I added the muffin in a minute recipe to my breakfast rotation.
