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!

    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 :)

Has anyone made this in the oven? I am not a microwave fan.

    We've never tried it in the oven but let us know if you do!

Just a quick correction. This is not a low carb muffin. As a diabetic I can tell you right now this muffin counts as one full exchange since it is too close to 15 gr of carbohydrate to count as 1/2 an exchange. Other than that it is a really good and healthy recipe, especially since it offers an alternative to chemical sugar substitutes. Yay team!! <3

I make these muffins at least once a week for my husband and myself. I absolutely love them. Very satisfying and not overly sweet like bakery muffins.

Ididnt have flax seed so I used 100 o/o natural wheat bran ..with lots of blueberries .Turn out well , its good just not great ...but will do again

I just made it with blueberries and walnuts. Taste is great but it was dry. Wondering if it's the difference in microwave power? I'm going to add applesauce next time. Definitely a keeper!
