I’ve always loved muffins but most are loaded with sugar and flour. This healthy muffin in a minute recipe is quick, easy, very low carb and high in fiber. It’s delicious for breakfast, snack or even dessert.

Expert Tips

  • Looking for a savory variation? Substitute out the sweetener and add in shredded cheese, chopped veggies, and spices (dill is yummy) to pair alongside salads or soups.
  • This muffin is keto-friendly! While a small amount of blueberries are okay on the keto diet, you can always skip them and just use nuts and seeds for add-ins to keep it even lower in carbs.
  • This tasty muffin is also gluten-free and dairy-free!

Hey guys. Well I made three times the mix in a silicon muffin tray, came out good, cooked a bit longer, but I found them a bit heavy, def not sweet. So next I made a mug one, Half flaxseed and half coconut flour,, lemon zest, blueberry and a few flaked almonds,, yummo. Very filling. Will try the savoury one next!!

The confusion of the woman who thought it was a TBL spoon was that the tsp was in capital letters in the video which is generally not in caps in reference to a recipe. I have to always laugh when people change the recipe. I made it and love it as is! Especially since i am trying to get the sugar out of my diet! Thanks

Chris, how could I incorporate coconut flour into this recipe? tx.

    Hi there! I've never used coconut flour in this recipe so I'm not sure how it would work. Let me know if you try it!

Actually, I did choke. It was pretty scary. I don't eat fruit (diabetic severely sensitive to carbs) so I'm not going to be making this again, but it tasted pretty good. A little spongy and eggy for me.

Made today for the first time. I added walnuts, blueberries, a dash of ginger and a dash of nutmeg. I didn't have stevia so I used truvia, but it was not sweet enough. I ate it with a little apricot preserve to make up for the lack of sweetness, and it was great! I will definitely make this again. Sent the recipe to my daughter who is a vegetarian.

I noticed the video of making the muffin said 1 T of olive oil but the listed recipe says 1 t. I made it with one tablespoon and it is not trust all.

    Hi Jodi - we just checked the video and sorry that there was some confusion. The video does say 1 TSP (not TBSP) so it matches the recipe. Sorry about that but it shold work better with 1 teaspoon :)
