This low carb, grain free “muffin” that can be made in a matter of minutes is a lifesaver for when you want a sub for bread or to bulk out a meal or even a quick breakfast.
It takes seconds to whip up and only a minute & a half in the microwave to cook, you can gather/make your filling while it cooks which makes it a great quick, easy, crap free meal option, suitable for even keto, paleo and grain free diets.
Once cooked, you can slice into rounds and serve whatever you like on top or use it as a substitute for bread for soups/spreads etc.
I like to have sauteed mushrooms and avocado with mine for a light dinner or savoury breakfast.
This is also a great reduced carb option for the colder weather as once the temperature drops, we tend to overdo the comforting carbs so this one will help balance out your meals on rest/less active days.
Recipe (makes 1 mug muffin)
-1 Tbsp ground almonds
-1 Tbsp hemp protein (or unflavoured pea protein)
-1 Tbsp fat reduced coconut flour (I used groovy foods brand)
-1/4 tsp baking powder
Mix together everything in a medium circular mug then microwave (800W) for 1 minute 30 secs, allow to cool for 2-3mins before attempting to remove it. Once cool enough to handle, slice into 2/3 rounds and top with whatever you like
