Share to save for later!

Sometimes living the keto lifestyle means you miss the comfort of a good slice of bread, biscuit, or breakfast muffin. It’s not a secret that there are lots of different keto-friendly recipes for low-carb baking. But most of them require up to an hour to prepare. 

No one has time for that, especially first thing in the morning when you’re trying to get out the door anyway!

Today I want to introduce you to a super quick and easy keto flaxseed muffin in a mug recipe. Don’t have time in the morning? No problem! You’ll get your morning muffin ready just in one minute.

No need to spend time making a dough or baking, all you need is flaxseed meal, eggs and a pinch of baking powder. Yes, only three basic ingredients to make this perfect muffin just in a minute. You probably already have these ingredients handy in your kitchen anyway.

I find that making quick muffin in the microwave using flax meal is easier than using almond flour or coconut flour. However, if you want the full muffin-making experience, try this Keto Almond Four Muffins recipe.

I add garlic flakes and a pinch of salt to these keto muffins, but you can add some other seasonings like paprika, Italian seasoning or any other seasonings that you like most.



Maybe you already know that adding flaxseeds to your diet has lots of benefits. Regular consumption of flaxseeds has been shown to lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol, improve digestion, reduce inflammation, reduce the risk of cancer, and help lower blood sugar levels.

Even though you only need a minute to make this recipe, you can make these ahead of time and freeze them. The flaxseeds in this recipe give the muffins a nice seedy look similar to a poppyseed muffin.

I’ve added savoury spices to this recipe, but you can make these muffins a sweet treat by adding keto-friendly sweeteners, cinnamon and some berries instead. 

Be sure not to omit the baking powder as this is what helps make the recipe come together and rise. To make, blend all ingredients in a bowl, transfer to a microwave-safe bowl.
