One Minute Muffin is a TOTAL WIN!
 
I'm just saying...:high5:

EveH 07-13-2011 08:36 PM

Ah yes. I wish I had a dollar for eveyone who discovers how good these things can be. I use a mixture of golden flax meal, pecan meal and almond meal for mine. Love them with SF jam and may be the reason I don't miss sweets.

Beeb 07-13-2011 08:55 PM

In the winter months and when I have time I bake them in the oven............OH HEAVEN!!! :love:

I put almonds in the coffee grinder to make my almond meal, leave some chunks in there and it is so delish! I add lots of cinnamon, and vanilla. This is one of my favorite things low carb to eat, satisfies my occasional hunger for bread.

Beeb - how do you make yours in the oven? Same recipe but with muffin tins?

Very Yummy!!! :clap:

I love the OMM... banana extract some almonds... banana nut bread, YUMMY!

Great tips on Almond meal...the Flax ones always left me bloated and while I LOVED the texture and versatility, they were not my friend.

SherriS. 07-14-2011 07:21 AM

I can't believe I haven't tried these yet! Will do it this weekend. Need another breakfast option that's easy.

zipp2play 07-14-2011 08:59 AM

SherriS. 07-14-2011 09:11 AM

I'll give it a try in my donut maker - will let y'all know how it turns out over the weekend.

LIVE_FREE_NH 07-14-2011 10:00 AM

YES YES YES (Meg Ryan in "Sleepless in Seattle") :rofl:

I didn't have any ramekins but found a nice set of 4 Corning brand at Walmart.

a coffee mug works great and I only cook mine a minute to a minute 15 but the recipe I use doesn't have cream cheese in it

4 Tbsp flax
1.5 tsp coconut oil (or butter and I've done as much as 1 Tbsp)
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1-2 tsp cocoa powder
tiny tiny pinch of salt if using coconut oil
10 drops english toffee stevia
Today to mix things up I add 1 Tbsp flaked coconut

Janknitz 07-14-2011 05:24 PM

Here's my trick:

I got some little wide mouthed canning jars--1/2 pint size. I use coconut oil to grease these and then put enough dry ingredients for a single serving in each jar, then put a lid on.

Now, on busy mornings, I just have to add 1 tsp of coconut oil and an egg to mix in one of these jars and pop it in the microwave--quick and easy. CAUTION: The jar gets very hot making these in the microwave. Handle with CARE and an oven mitt!!!!!

My other favorite container for a single serving made in the microwave is a Pyrex 1 cup measuring cup.

I tripled the recipe and spread evely between 6 "cups" in the muffin top pan. Baked at 350 until smelled/looked/felt done. They were great.

YES PLEASE let us know. ;) Hmm, now wondering if I could make some sort of glaze>> Maybe a cream cheese glaze? HWC?? WIll work on that!

Eliza_Jazz 07-15-2011 10:13 AM

I made one last night with butter, HWC, cocoa powder, and almond meal ...came out awesome. I like putting a bit of cream cheese on top and it kinda melts ....yummy!

before I cut out dairy that was my fave! My new fave way is to top it with 1 tbsp coconut milk...its so good.

EveH 07-15-2011 10:37 AM

I have an older micro and cook mine longer. I probably would anyway because I don't like them to be too wet on the bottom. You just have to try different times to see what works best in yours. Anywhere from 1 1/2 min to 2 min seems to be the rule. If you add liquids to the basic recipe like this morning for instance, I added a TBS of SF Raspberry syrup, you have to cook it just a tad longer. Here's my recipe:

1/4 cup of any nut or seed flours like flax, pecan, almond, coconut etc.I mix Flax and pecan a lot.
Add to that, 1/4 to 1/2 tsp baking powder,,,mix very well
2 TBS oil.....mix that in
1 egg...beat really well into mix, you don't want any egg white strings....
Pinch of salt...I think it taste a little flat without it
Now the fun part....add some type of flavoring...I like banana, caramel, coconut,....
I cook mine in the same bowl I mix it in. It is just a small, square cereal bowl. When it is done, I take it out and cut into little squares and top with peanut butter or cream cheese, or SF Jam, or just plain butter.....

Don't forget you can add savory things like dried tomato, spices like garlic powder, or herbs like dried basil etc. I do moisten any dried things first though because there is not a lot of moisture in the muffins. You can put cheese on top and pop them under the broiler too. Or pour your batter into a flat rectangular plate and cook them thin and flat....cut in half and make a sandwich. :) Hope this info helps someone.

Thanks so much EveH! I was really looking for the recipe everyone was talking about!
I can't wait to go home and try all of these recipes this weekend!
I will let you know what my fave was on Monday!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

EveH 07-15-2011 02:38 PM

Your're welcome email......I do use more oil than most and some don't use oil at all but use butter. I just wanted something that I didn't have to melt first and wait for it to cool, so I use oil.

Missouri_Librarian 07-15-2011 03:34 PM

does anyone have a recipe that you could add a little pumpkin, or would i just add in a few teaspoons and some cinnamon to the original recipe and bake them as beeb does??...
