One Minute Grain-free Muffin

What??? Yes, you read that right. I'm not sure it's rational for me to be this excited about one recipe but I totally am. It's quite possibly the coolest recipe that I have stumbled upon. Seriously. Can't get much easier AND it tastes amazing AND actually has a bread/muffin consistency.


I'm ecstatic. As you can tell. I even did a little happy dance.... Yeah good thing I'm not doing video blogs yet. There may have been some singing too...

Anyway, I cannot take credit for this one, I found it on this awesome website, Healthy Living How To and it has apparently been passed around the paleo community for a while.

One Minute Grain-free Muffin

1/2 tbls coconut oil
1 egg organic, cage-free
1/4 cup almond flour or meal
2 tbls ground flax seed
Pinch of garlic salt
1/2 tsp baking powder


Using a ramekin or a coffee mug, melt the coconut oil for 30 seconds in the microwave. In another ramekin or coffee mug, whisk together the egg and almond flour. Add in the melted coconut oil, flax meal and salt. Combine thoroughly and then mix in the baking powder. Once everything is mixed well, pour the 'batter' into the ramekin or coffee mug that you had used to melt the coconut oil in.

Heat in the microwave for 1 minute. Allow to cool for a couple minutes and then it should slide right out using a small spatula.

I cut mine in half to make a sandwich. Oh my heavenly love it was amazing. I wanted to eat it all over again once I was finished. 

Breakfast tomorrow morning too? Um yes, I think so.

Also, you could throw all sorts of stuff in this (but don't get too crazy as it could overflow in the microwave), blueberries, sage, thyme, rosemary, vanilla? Yum.



  1. Omg yum!!! Do you think this would work with coconut flour?

    1. Hi Julie,

      Hm... I'm not sure I would be worried that it may not 'puff' up as much but hey it's worth a shot!

      I'll give it a try. If you do before me, let me know how it goes :)))

  2. I just tried this! I can't believe how FULL it has made me feel.
