Muffin in a Minute (MIM) ~ Atkins Induction Friendly

Submitted by: SOONERGIRL99

Introduction

An Atkins induction friendly muffin. An Atkins induction friendly muffin.
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    (Nutrition information next to each ingredient is from the Atkins forum ~ see my note below)

    1/4 cup flax meal (8.09 total carbs, 7.6 fiber)
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder (0.64 net carbs)
    1 packet splenda packet (0.9 net carbs)
    1 teaspoon cinnamon (1.84 total carbs, 1.2 fiber)
    1 large egg (0.6 net carbs)
    1 teaspoon butter

    NOTE from soonergirl99/Gina ~ I used Flax USA Cold Milled Ground Flax (from Costco) and my carb calculations were a bit higher than what was posted on the Atkins forum/message board.

Directions

Put the dry ingredients in a coffee mug.

Stir.

Then add the egg and the butter. Mix.

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

Cream cheese would go nicely, too.

The shape of this can be changed by making it in a bowl.

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

The cinnamon can be replaced. I would imagine that any sugar free syrup could be added.

Some people count the flax as a carb/fiber wash, so then the net carbs would be 2.78.

Number of Servings: 1

    This is an awesome find. Thank you so much for sharing. I didn't have the cinnamon on hand, but had a box of milled flax seed that has been ignored forever. I can see this serving as toast for breakfast as well as a dessert with berries. Awesome! - 3/5/13

    This morning for brunch I added about a 1/8 of a cup of blueberries, splash of heavy cream, and a tablespoon of almond flour. You have to nuke it for a little longer, like 1/2 a min.

    for a savory MIM I dont put in the splenda and just add salt and pepper and sometimes parmasan cheese, garlic e - 2/3/13

    I used flaxseed meal also, and yes they are filling.I cut in half and spread cinnamon cream cheese on each half. I mix my own cinnamon cream cheese and use splenda to sweeten it. My daughter and I share the one muffin and even half is filling. This is a keeper! - 7/23/12

    I tried this for breakfast today with just a tweak or two. I absolutely love it and see HUGE potential by changing it to a savory muffin or as it is. It really helped me as I was tiring of eggs and bacon or omelettes for breakfast. Ate w/crm cheese and 2 slices crisp bacon. YUM! - 3/6/13

    Idk, I'm still of the fence with this one. It definitely cured the craving for bread but I can't really say it is high on my favorites list. - 6/21/12

    I was pleasantly surprised at how good this was. Since a touch sweet, this would be nice as a midday snack, especially with cream cheese on it. - 6/19/12

    I believe the calculations are wrong on this. The recipe calls for 1 tsp butter but if you click the link for nutritional breakdown it has 1 Tablespoon. - 11/6/13

  • LOVE these! I also add 1 tblsp. of coconut oil - great way to get my good fats in. I even make chocolate ones...just add a tblsp. of cocoa. I only leave mine in the microwave for 45 seconds so they aren't so "dried out" - 4/28/13
