Title: One Minute Muffins
Post by: izzet on November 11, 2010, 06:50:03 PM
This recipe is in bread and crackers, also.

I just used this recipe to make a grilled turkey/bacon/cheese sandwich!


1 tsp butter, soft
1 egg
cup flaxseed meal
tsp baking powder
tsp xylitol
1 tbsp heavy cream
A sprinkle of Parmesan
A couple pinches of salt


Mix ingredients together and pour into a square plastic container.  Microwave on high for 1 min 30 seconds.  Pop right out of the container, cool, and slice horizontally.  Lightly butter the outside of the bread pieces, add whatever meats/cheeses you want and grill it up!  YUMMMM!

The flaxseed definitely gives it a distinct taste, kinda like you are eating a very wheat-y wheat bread.  Salt & pepper definitely helped.  Next time I might add a dash of garlic salt or something.

I've been making these too, but only with the first 4 ingredients. It's nice to make up just one batch, rather than have a whole bunch leftover.

This is a great easy bread/bun!  I put mine in a round bowl, sliced and put roast beef and cheese and grilled on both sides.  Wonderful and so easy.  I did use Almond Meal/flour with just a touch of golden flax (husband is not a big fan of flax taste).

I love this, and also make it with the first 4 ingredients, but wonder what would happen if I left out the butter? Thoughts? I want to also try a tiny drop of zero carb banana extract, would that work? Would liquid egg whites work in place of the egg? Does it need the yolk? Im clueless when it comes to baking. Thanks

Post by: Rena on May 11, 2011, 11:56:13 AM
I've been making these with a few squirts of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" and leaving out the egg yolk. Mine is basically just 1/4 cup flaxmeal, 1 egg white, 1/2 tsp baking powder, and some of the butter stuff. I mix it all up and then add a little water. Sometimes I'll add some cinnamon, especially if I'm going to put WF Apple Butter on it.

Of course, it's better with all the other ingredients. I just tried to cut out some of the fat and calories by doing it this way. And I like how it tastes, so that's all that matters. :)

I am a big fan of this recipe.  Today I made it for breakfast, sliced it in half and put mayo on each side with a slice of tomato on each side. I salted and peppered the tomato.  Next time I will put slices of bacon on too.  It was soooo good!

Post by: shawn116 on May 26, 2011, 10:00:06 PM
I've used this in so many ways.  I think one of my favorite ways is to put a handful of walnuts and a splash of banana extract.  Yummy!!

Post by: Rena on May 27, 2011, 08:52:21 PM
Alex -- I think mine are about 138, but I don't use everything everyone else does. I make mine simple and only use an egg white. I also cut back by using "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" instead of the other kind. Flaxmeal is kind of high in fat, but I guess it's one of those good fats that we're better off having. :)
Title: Re: One Minute Muffins
Post by: Mimzy on May 27, 2011, 11:42:37 PM
I make mine without any butter and just use an egg white.  They are still moist.  I add xylitol, cinnamon, and some vanilla extract.  They are quite good and I find they help if I need a quick sweet fix.  ;)

Can you make these muffins in larger batches? and do they freeze well? Also do you have to use the microwave to cook them?

Title: Re: One Minute Muffins

joagain - I use this from the FTS board - I use almond meal with just a tiny bit of the Flax

1 minute muffin

1 tsp butter, soft
1 egg
cup almond meal or flax meal (or combination of both!)
tsp baking powder
tsp xylitol optional
1 tbsp heavy cream or splash of water
A sprinkle of Parmesan optional
A couple pinches of salt

Mix ingredients together and pour into a square plastic container.  Microwave on high for 1 min 30 seconds.  Pop right out of the container, cool, and slice horizontally.

Post by: shawn116 on June 20, 2011, 05:12:33 PM
If you use the almond meal it is a much milder flavor.  It is for sure my favorite to use.  I've also like the golden flax meal, but the regular flax is just to stong of flavor for me. :P :P 
Title: Re: One Minute Muffins
Post by: joagain on June 20, 2011, 05:46:54 PM
ok I will try it I have made it with the regular flax and did not like it then I found the golden and tried it and did not like that .  I will give these a try see if it is any better to me thanks
Title: Re: One Minute Muffins
Post by: Rena on June 20, 2011, 06:22:30 PM
I make mine a little different ...

I spray a Pyrex cup with "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" about 10 times. Then I add just an egg white, a little salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 cup flaxmeal, and some water. If I'm making it into a bread, I might add some dill seasoning, or for muffins/packcakes I'll add some cinnamon. Then I microwave it for 90 seconds to 2 minutes. If I'm making a piece of bread, I'll use a square Tupperware-like dish. If I'm making a muffin, I just leave it in the Pyrex cup. And lately for pancakes I've been spooning them out onto a microwave-safe plate and cooking them that way. They are so much better than how they turned out on the stove!

This is a favorite of mine for bread and toast. Tried it this morning as a muffin.  Put the xylitol and added a few chocolate chips (sugar free).  Very good and great with coffee.

Umpa I found the silicone muffin cups at Jo Ann Fabrics a local fabric and craft store...  I used them this morning to make the one minute banana nut muffins.  I doubled the recipe and it made 6 nice size muffins!!  :o    Very good!!  I could only eat two  ;) ;)  I'm really looking forward to my coffee in the morning  ;D ;D   I think I am going to love these things....

Title: Re: One Minute Muffins
Post by: izzet on August 07, 2011, 05:47:10 PM
Ok I finally tried this and wow it was great and quick.  I used 1/2 almond flour and 1/2 flax seed and it fluffed up like a big english muffin.  I cut it in half and put some butter then toasted it.  Wonderful!  I agree with one of the other members that this is better than making so much at once and it getting fuzzy. lol  Sometimes I don't eat it quick enough.

Yeah, they call it MIM on Atkins -- muffin in a minute.

It's a great recipe and like Izzet just said, I like being able to make one serving at a time. Sometimes I want toast, sometimes I want a muffin, other times I use it for pancakes. Think I'll make a cake next ... with frosting! :)

Rena, you mentioned you use the OMM for pancakes.  Do you pour the mix on a griddle or microwave.  Do you change the recipe at all?  thanks
Title: Re: One Minute Muffins
Post by: Rena on August 08, 2011, 10:31:07 AM
Hi Suzlyn,

I used to cook them on a griddle like regular pancakes, but found they took forever and always turned out mushy. So now I put them on a microwave-safe plate (lightly sprayed with Pam) and microwave them for about 2 minutes. They turn out so much better this way! I've changed the recipe a bit.

In a Pyrex measuring cup ...

Spray about 10 squirts of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
1 egg white
1/4 cup flaxmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
cinnamon (I rarely measure it)
little bit of water

Then I mix it really well and let it sit for a few seconds. Most of the time it gets super thick, so I keep adding water until it's a good consistency. Then I spoon it onto the plate. I usually get about 6 silver dollar sized pancakes. I cook them about 2 minutes.

Others make it with a whole egg, but I only use an egg white to cut down the carb/fat content. I don't pay too much attention to fat, but flax is full of it, so I just try to limit it in ways I can. Others add heavy cream and vanilla to the recipe, so you can do a lot to make it taste the way you like it.

But I found microwaving works a lot better than the stove -- so much faster too. I make pancakes this way a lot and use Walden Farms maple or blueberry syrup on them.

Thanks Rena,

Thought the "batter" of the OMM was a little too thick to make a good pancake.  Printing your version now. LOL :D ;)

Last night I used the OMM recipe to make a mini strawberry shortcake for hubby and I.

Melt 1 T butter
1/4 cup flaxseed (this is what I used instead of the almond meal)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 egg
2 T Hersey's SF Strawberry syrup (0 carb)
2 T Smucker's SF Strawberry Topping (split 1 T in mix, saved 1 T for topping) (0 carb)
1 T Walden's SF Pancake Syrup (0 carb)

Topping
2 T Land Of Lakes Whipped Topping (0 carb)
1 T Smucker's SF Strawberry Topping (from above)

I mixed the dry ingredients while the butter was melting.  Then I added the SF strawberry syrup, SF topping and Walden's syrup and the egg to the dry mix.  Mixed it really well then added the butter and mixed again.  I placed it in a circular ramekin (sp? lol).  It took my microwave about 1 minute and half to cook the muffin to my liking.  I then sliced the muffin in half, lightly buttered both sides and cooked on a teflon griddle to "crisp" both sides.  Chilled in the freezer about 5-6 minutes.  I then sprayed some whipped topping between the two pieces of muffin.  After putting the 2 pieces together I sprayed a little whipped topping on top, adding the saved strawbery topping to make it pretty.  Served it on a small cake plate.  YUMMMMM.  Even my hubby was impressed.  I would have loved to taken a picture but don't know how to upload to forum yet.  :-\

This morning I made a cinnamon cheese danish out of the OMM  So good  ;)  
Here is what I did:

1/4 cup golden flax (0 net carbs)
1 Tbs melted butter (0 carbs)
1 egg ( I used egg white to lower the carbs) (0 net carbs)
1/2 tsp baking powder (0 carbs)
1 tsp vanilla (0 carbs)
1 tsp cinnamon (.5 net carbs)
6 drops of liquid splenda (http://www.zerosweetner.com/) (0 carbs)
1 Tbs  sf Torani brown sugar and cinnamon (0 carbs)
1/8 cup pecans  ( .5 net carbs)
1 triangle of Laughing Cow Cinnamon cream cheese spread (2 net carbs)

Total net carb = 3

Mix all ingredients together except the cream cheese and pecans and set aside a few minutes to thicken up.  Spray plastic container with pam or other cooking spray.  Crumble and spread out pecans on bottom of container.  Spread batter over top and put cream cheese triangle in the center.  Cook in microwave for 90 seconds.  I drizzled it with sugar free maple syrup but it was good without.  Also it is great warm but it is better if it is chilled  ;)   I'm thinking next time I'll mix a little sweetener in the cream cheese and having it with out the syrup.

By the way I had this cream cheese spread on top of a toasted low carb peta and it was delish  ;) ;)
