Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

This is a great snack! I added a mini box of raisins and some vanilla. I also did 2 Egg Whites instead of 1 Egg and cut about 40 calories and 7 grams of fat! Something different and quick to make. Submitted by:

Bread-like texture and tastes great. I've had this plain, with vanilla extract and nuts, with golden raisins...you can dress this up and still keep the calories down. Good for when you're short on time. It keeps me going for 3-4 hours. Submitted by:

Yummy & filling. It's a new favorite breakfast. I struggle to get enough protein so this helps. I add a tablespoon of craisins to help get some fruit into my diet too. Submitted by:

Loved this! I've been making peanut butter mug muffins up until now and they are nowhere as good as this. I throw in a handful of blueberries and use a splash of sugar-free almond syrup for the sweetener. EDIT: Any fruit is great in these. Started adding a few chunks of cream cheese. OMG! Submitted by:

WOW!! So EASY and so GOOD! I think I FINALLY found a breakfast food for this gastric bypass patient! It provided the "carby" texture I seem to always crave without putting me into a carb-coma AND provided 12 g of protein to start my day. This is a WINNER! Submitted by:

Awesome! I used coconut oil in place of butter and spray and some turbinado sugar in place of Splenda. I melted the oil in a 2 cup measuring cup and swirled it around. No sticking. I mixed ingreds. first then put into cup. 1 minute was perfect for my 1000 watt microwave. Thanks for this recipe! Submitted by:

Oh my goodness. I have been using this recipe for about a year now. It is my number one, go to recipe. MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE BREAKFAST. I mixed up the dry ingredients and added a little protein powder to make an even 4 tbsp. I Keep a container with all the dry combined, so its an even to make! Submitted by:

I use 2 T.flaxmeal, 2 T.almond meal, liquid vanilla splenda (holds up to the heat better than Truvia), orange zest, and frozen raspberries. I slice it and add a little full-fat cream cheese to each slice. To keep it from sticking, melt the butter first, then roll it around the inside of the cup. Submitted by:

I made the muffin as shown, although I used Truvia, and it was delicious! I can't wait to try it with nuts, fruit, and other variations. On a low carb diet, I miss breads, but this is a perfect solution to that craving. It's so quick and easy it will be a definite addition to my mornings! Submitted by:

These muffins are easy, filling and healthy! I add golden raisins and microwave for 65 seconds. The key for me is that the fact that there is a whole egg in the muffin, good fat and Flax Meal allows me to use the muffin as my complete breakfast and I don't get hungry until time for lunch.

My sister and I made a batch of these and it was great. Instead of Splenda we used Stevia and then put Organic Sugar free peanut butter on top to taste. It was an excellent guilt free treat. Submitted by:

This is a great recipe that is a classic from the low carber forums. For the person who wanted to make this without dairy (butter) try it with coconut oil instead. I use 2 tsp. but anywhere from zero to 1 tablespoon is good. Carb count is lower and muffin is moister if liquid sweetener is used. Submitted by:

Just tried these muffins and they are spectacular!!! All I had was roasted flaxmeal, but it was still fabulous. Very quick and easy for a fast snack and the carb count is great!! Submitted by:
