Spray a mug with vegetable pan spray, add butter and microwave for a few seconds to melt it. Add the rest of the ingredients to the mug, stir and micowave for one minute. Be careful, if you have a 1100W microwave one minute is too long. Try 45 seconds and if it isn't done, add a few seconds at a time until it is done. Every microwave is different, so you may have to "play" with the recipe.
When muffin is done, just turn it out onto a plate.

Sometimes I add chopped walnuts or pecans to the muffin, but I didn't add that nutritional info to this recipe.
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.
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!
very surprised at how good this was. used 1 T sugar in place of sweetener and coconut oil in place of butter. Will try butter next. Ate w/o any extras spread on it or added to recipe. :) Very filling!
I tried this recipe this morning. It was excellent. I added the walnuts. I was thinking of adding some dried blueberries. I had it as a snack after my treadmill workout. This recipe is a keeper !
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.
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!
This is great. I then made one with 1/8 cup flax & 1/8 cup shelled hemp seed and 1 egg white (no yolk) which was also good though a little less moist. Egg white only is good if you want to eat one every day!
This recipe was yummy for a quick but healthy snack or morning muffin. I added frozen blueberries and nuts so increased my time in the microwave to 1 1/2 minutes. What a great idea for a single serving!!
Love it! I added some ricotta cheese and it took me 50 seconds. I didn't have any grounded flaxmeal, so I made my own in the blender. Just put the flax seeds in the blender and blended them until they were powder. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Delicious!! I added just a few dried cranberries and about 2 walnuts halves broken up. Cooked it for 45 seconds--turned out great!! (Will be even better when I don't forget the sweetener--LOL)
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!
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!
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.
