This is classic recipe from the low carberforums and isa fabulously fast and easy recipe to make. It is perfect for a quick, healthy and filling breakfast.It is low carb and gluten free too!

Also a good way to get some flax into your diet.The muffin tastes like a sweet wholemeal muffin with a dash of cinnamon. Even the chief taster who is not a flax fan likes this. You could add chopped nuts or fruit to this and even a few spices to your liking. Play around and make it your own! I like to add coconut and berries to mine...just delicious!

The only drawback of this recipe is that you need to make it in the microwave.However, it is fun to watch it quicklyrise in the cup whilst cooking in the microwave...but that's probably just the inner child in me coming out again... The time it takes to cook will depend on the power of your microwave. Cook for a minute, check it and zap it for a few seconds more until it is firm and cooked. It makes a great breakfast or snack on the go!

Recipe Tips

Add berries or unsweetened desiccated coconut

    I wish I could print this on a smaller service. It printed out about 8 pages


    • Angela Coleby

      I'll update the recipe card and the printing options will be a lot better for you.

    This was so delicious, thank you for the recipe!!! I’ve been searching and searching for a way to add fiber/flaxseed specifically to my diet and this does the trick - - in SUCH an easy, yummy way :-)!


    • Angela Coleby

      Glad you enjoyed this healthy muffin!

    I love the cream cheese suggestion! I made my first muffin this morning and love it. The photo makes it look a little eggy, but it does not taste of egg at all. I added 2 drops of maple extract. Very thankful for a high fiber option as this is my biggest challenge since going keto.


      • Julie Woods

        OK...going to try again and will post a photo.


      • Julie Woods

        Angela, It just got better! I used cardamom and cinnamon with a dash of anise seeds. I also put a dollop of cream cheese in the center as suggested by another Julie! It is so good!! How can I send you my photos?


        • Angela Coleby

          Bravo! Please send!!


  4. Alex

    How can I make it in the oven?


    • Angela Coleby

      I'd bake it at about 350F degrees for 10-15 minutes.


  5. Eliza

    Delicious! Perfect with my morning cup of coffee . Thank you for the great recipe.


    • Angela Coleby

      Glad you enjoyed it!


  6. Toni

    The carb count was about 12, isnt that high when your doing Keto......
    New to the Keto diet. Thank you


    • Angela Coleby

      You might be looking at total carbs, not net carbs. The fibre needs to be subtracted and flax seed is very high in carbs, usually netting about 1g net carb per serving.

    This was really good! I did have to make a few modifications. I'm dairy free so I used coconut oil instead of butter. I only put in a half tsp of cinnamon and added a quarter tsp of nutmeg. I don't have any sweetner in the house so I used a Tbsp of my Perfect Keto vanilla protein powder. It was just what I needed. And my first mug cake. Thanks so much for the recipe. It will be added to my weekly breakfast rotation!


    • Angela Coleby

      Glad you enjoyed it!

    I just stirred one of these up for breakfast. I left out any sweetener, sank about 1 T of cream cheese in the middle and added a small handful of wild blueberries on top. Seems pretty decadent!! 🙂


    • Divalicious

      That sounds delicious Julie....will definitely have to try that!


      • Julie

        It really was, and I have to tell you that I ended up getting caught up in work all day and didn't ever get to eat lunch. I didn't even notice until about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, so all that fat and fiber kept me full for a good long while. 🙂

    Had one of these with breakfast this morning! It was really easy & yummy. (Reminded me of a bran muffin... which is my favorite!)


    • Angie C

      Glad you enjoyed it! I just love how easy it is to make! I put some blackberries in mine today....berrilicious!
