would someone PLEASE post the 1 minute muffin recipe, and tell me the carb count for it. I would be eternally, and internally grateful. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

Most Muffin-in-a minute recipes can be condensed down to this generic recipe:
  • 4 tablespoons "dry" ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons "wet" Ingredients
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon spices/extracts
Dry ingredients could be all or a mix of almond flour, flax meal, coconut flour (but cut dry measurement in half), protein powder, oat fiber, etc.

Wet ingredients could be butter, oil, cream, water, almond milk, etc. More wet might be needed with coconut flour, since it absorbs so much.

Savory spices/extracts could be garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, Italian seasoning, cumin, cayenne pepper, curry powder, salt, pepper, cocoa powder, etc.

Sweet spices/extracts could be sweeteners, SF syrups, cinnamon, almond extract, vanilla extract, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, ginger, etc.

You can also make up a big batch of the "dry" ingredients/spices/extracts plus the baking powder. Then just take a 1/4 cup scoop of it and add the egg and "wet" ingredients/spices/extracts. Makes it quicker to make each time.

For example, I like to throw 3 tablespoons of butter in my mug, melt it in the microwave and swirl the melted butter around the sides of the mug, then throw in the 1/4 cup dry ingredient mix with an egg and the wet spices/extracts (if any), and stir. Then in the microwave for a minute or so. Very quick.

A potential frosting:
  • 1 ounce cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon almond milk (or cream)
  • 3 tablespoons Splenda sugar substitute (or more or less, depends on your taste)

flat--I would measure all your ingredients and then figure out the net carbs. For example, I often make a muffin in a mug with one egg, 2 Tbs SF davinci's, 2 Tbs flaxmeal, 1 Tbs almond flour, cinnamon, and 2-3 Tbs heavy cream. beat egg, syrup and cream, then add the two flours, stir and nuke for a minute or two. If you count net carbs, this would be about 3 net carbs and very filling. You have to measure and then experiment to see what is your favorite combination.
