I miss bread! I'm not going to lie. I fantasize about a warm crusty on the outside, soft on the inside chunk of French bread slathered with melting European butter (there is a difference). But, as I slip back to reality, I realize that bread is not on the menu for a while. Or, is it? After much searching for the right recipe I settled for a muffin that could be popped into the microwave in a pinch.
Disclaimer: This recipe is for the carb deprived only. It's not going to taste remotely like a chunk of French bread, bagel or slice of toast. IT IS UNIQUE, but satisfied my craving for bread. I plan to tweak the recipe a bit, add coconut flour next time instead of so much flax seed meal.
Low Carb Microwave Muffins
4 Tablespoons of flax seed meal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 packet sweetener (stevia or truvia)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp butter
Place the dry ingredients into a coffee mug, mix and add the egg and softened butter. Mix again. At this time you can add some blueberries or raspberries (3 or so). Microwave for 1 minute. Remove from the mug, slather with butter or cream cheese and TRY to enjoy. Not bad!
