One Minute Muffin - OMG, Ya' Gotta Try!!
« on: August 13, 2010, 05:23:57 PM »
                 One-Minute Muffin

I’ll post the original “1-Minute Muffin” recipe I found, but definitely look at the many variations below...


.   Melt 1 T butter in a coffee cup or measuring cup.
.   Mix in ¼ cup flaxseed meal, (can use almond meal, oat fiber, coconut flour or a  mixture, i.e. half flax, half almond)
.   ½ tsp baking powder
.   1 egg
.   Sweetener (to personal taste): 1 tsp xylitol or 1-2 Spenda pkts or 1 T S/F flavored syrup (Torani/Da Vinci)

Mix well – microwave approximately 50-60 seconds (depending on micro wattage).  Turn out and let cool.  Muffin top should look shiny and a little moist. Serve w/butter or cream cheese while warm or plastic wrap for later.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                        To get you started, here are a few ideas...

Banana Bread Muffin:  Add cinnamon/nutmeg, S/F Banana Syrup/extract, and nuts
Breakfast Muffin:  Add cinnamon, vanilla,
Spice Muffin:  Add cinnamon, allspice, and cloves
Cheese Muffin:  Add garlic powder and cheese of choice. 
Chocolate-Raspberry Muffin:  add S/F Chocolate and Raspberry syrups, and a cream cheese cube in the center.             

Chocolate Lava Muffin:  An individual Happy Birthday Cake (for the person looking for a recipe a while back!!)

1/4 Cup Almond Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbsp Splenda (more or less), (probably less if using Xylitol)
2 tsp. Torani Chocolate SF Syrup
1 Tbsp unsweetened Baking Cocoa (mine has 1 carb per Tbsp)
1 Egg
2 tsp. Butter or Olive Oil
2 pieces S/F Chocolate Candy on top of mixture.

Pumpkin Pie Muffin:  Add 1 tsp Pumpkin spice and ½ tsp cinnamon
Stuffing Muffin:  Replace sweetener & cinnamon with poultry seasoning & salt.

                                                  Now MORE ideas...
Nuke the mixture in a rectangular or square plastic container.  Cool and slice horizontally to make Sandwich Bread!!!  CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??!!  Now we can make grilled cheese; Reuben’s; egg salad; fried egg/bacon; BLTs, etc..  OR, dip slices in an egg/cream/cinnamon mixture and fry to make FRENCH TOAST, and top with S/F Maple Syrup!  Someone even made waffles with the original mixture!

Nuke in a round container (like the coffee mug), cool and slice horizontally.  Now we have a hamburger/sandwich bun; or the foundation for a McMuffin – I personally am looking forward to turning my faux English muffin into a Tuna Melt!!

                                             More Tips/Ideas found on an old, Low-Carb board: 

SANDWICH/BREAD/ROLLS:  “I make these, split the recipe between two square dishes and make 2 buns suitable for sandwiches, once sliced. For turkey sandwiches I add crushed red pepper, PARM, ITALIAN SEASONING, onion powder or garlic powder to the OMM (One Minute Muffin) recipe. I also add dill seed, celery seed, and coarse sea salt to the tops for all kinds of sandwiches.  This recipe is a lifesaver to anybody who misses bread.  I also use golden flax seed for a mellow yellow color.  Remember when you remove from dish, turn bread over to dry out the bottom if a little wet. I store mine in ziploc baggies.”

3-Minute LOAF:

“This is basically the "1-minute muffin" recipe, but tripled, made savory and cooked for 3-minutes.

3/4 Cup Flax meal
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tsp. Mrs. Dash, or Italian Blend Seasoning
3 Large Eggs
3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Sprinkle of Parmesean on top

Mix the dry ingredients in a loaf dish (like the holiday-size, banana nut bread, etc.). Add eggs and oil, mixing very well. I notice that if the dry ingredients are not thoroughly mixed, or the wet-big pockets are left in the bread, so mix it up good! Sprinkle Parmesean Cheese on top. Microwave for about 3-minutes, my microwave takes 2:50 to complete.

Pop out of the baking dish. Slice the loaf in half. Then slice each half in half, making 4 slices total. Each slice should have 1.13 total net carbs, or each complete sandwich should have 2.25 total net carbs. Each slice is about 3/4 inch thick.  This is a keeper! Next time, I'll top it with some sunflower seeds, maybe some celery seeds or a very light sprinkling of oats.”

 :D I’m am soooo excited about this recipe and its endless possibilities that I just had to share with everyone here on FTS!!! The 1-Minute Muffin is easy AND clean-up is just a cup and a fork!!!  ;D

Please be sure to post your creations so we all can try...

FRENCH TOAST
« Reply #1 on: August 16, 2010, 04:13:28 PM »
French Toast

¼ C flaxseed meal
½ tsp baking powder
1 egg
1 T butter
½ tsp xylitol
1 T Sugar Free Torani Carmel Syrup
½ tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

Blend well (I mix in the Ninja or Magic Bullet, but you can mix by hand).  Spray coffee mug lightly with Pam, pour contents into mug – microwave 50 seconds or more until muffin looks done and moist on top.  Turn out and cool.  Slice into 3 slices.  Make egg dip consisting of 1 egg, heavy cream and nutmeg, mix well.  Dip muffin slices into egg/cream mixture and place in a preheated fry pan/skillet.  Brown both sides and serve with S/F maple syrup (I used Log Cabin – 0 carbs).  Total carbs = 1 (egg)

Just had 2 eggs, 2 bacon strips, 3 slices of flax french toast for breakfast with a total carb count of 3 1/2!!  Can't beat that!! 
You can use make the 1-minute, 1-bowl muffins out of flax and soy - I just use flax to keep the carbs down.  You probably could add S/F maple syrup in place of the carmel.  I just found some 1 cup (I think) bowls by Ziploc that I make the muffins in, rather than the coffee mug - you can also just make them in cereal bowls...

I found a few of the Torani syrups at Walmart, but they seem to be running low, or maybe its because I buy so many and deplete their inventory  :D.  Netrition has a large variety of S/F Davinci flavored syrups (they don't carry Torani) - just ordered a  Banana (for banana/nut muffins), and Kahula for coffee (and White Russian  ;D ;D).

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


1 tsp butter, soft
1 egg
¼ cup flaxseed meal
½ tsp baking powder
½ 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.

Isn't it great to have muffins and sandwiches once in awhile??!!. 

I agree the flax is a different taste, but you can mix flax with soy, almond, oat to tone it down some - I just use flax in my muffins (love the banana bread), french toast,  sandwhich bread to keep the carbs down.  I just remembered, I froze sliced coffee mug muffins and sausage patties to make McMuffins for breakfast... Actually, I don't really mind the taste - just ordered golden flax to see if that will have a different taste. 

There are so many possibilites with these one-minute/one-bowl/one-carb muffins/bread...  I've made pepperoni bread for DH's meatloaf sandwich; olive bread for an egg salad sandwhich, an italian herb for a tuna melt,  plus the others listed above.  We also made the chocolate lava muffin, but used strawberries instead of candy - topped with reddi-whip and chocolate syrup - mmmm.  I have found the more moist ingredients or liquid I put in, I need to cook longer.  The coffee mug muffins are done in 55-58 seconds on my micro.

It doesn't seem to hinder our weight loss a great deal as we are still slowly loosing - actually I lost 2 pounds overnite when I first started eating these - maybe due to the fiber in the flax and the potty-visits???  ;) ;)

From what I have read, make sure you drink plenty of water with flax...

It was delish!

I also tried making the bread with cinnamon, slicing it into 2 pieces, dipped in an egg/heavy cream wash and fried it up like french toast...with a little SF syrup it really filled me up, and for hardly any carbs.  I'll take a pic of that next time :)
