If you’re following a low carb lifestyle, this one minute flax muffin is quick, easy, healthy, high fiber and low carb, you can make it sweet or savory

I have these once or twice a week, I use them for egg sandwiches or just with peanut butter.

Spray a small glass ramekin, (mine is 4 inch round and 1 inch deep) with cooking spray. I’ve also seen these made in a microwaveable coffee mug

Add 1/4 cup ground flaxseed

One whole egg

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, at this point you can also add some sweetener of choice to make it sweet, I don’t do this and enjoy it savory

Mix well

Microwave on high for one minute *Note: microwaves vary, one minute does it in mine*

Once done it’ll look like this airy and puffed up, be careful, the glass may be hot. Let cool for a minute or two and remove from the glass, it should just pop out

Slice in half like an English muffin and top with whatever you like!
