Like that idea? Then keep reading!
Early morning? Rushed? Just don’t like to cook much (at least not today)? 🙂
You can make a quick and healthy microwave muffin that is Paleo, Low Carb, Keto, Dairy Free, and Gluten Free with this Paleo Cinnamon Microwave Muffin recipe. It’s so quick, you even have time left to feel good about making your healthy muffin, fluff your hair up a little, and even get your kids and hubby (and you too even) out the door or off to work or school in due time!
This Wheat Free, Nut Free muffin recipe also makes for a great afternoon snack for your kids who go to a school that has restrictions on nuts inside the building.
What’s more, the protein content of this healthy breakfast muffin recipe (or snack muffin recipe) provides a hunger satisfaction for hours.
You can wrap it up if taking or sending it to school or work.
You can cut it in half and eat it as is or with a spread or topping.
If you WANT a spread or topping…
You can top it with butter, apple butter, pumpkin butter (a Paleo pumpkin butter recipe included in the next post), or with some honey if you wish. Seriously, as is, ie without any topping, is fine too. Just keep any topping you use within your health and/or dietary ideals.
You can eat it by itself, with yogurt, fresh fruit, milk, protein shake, or juice.
You can also simply include it with a fuller lunch of salad or soup to satisfy that desire for a “bread”.
I just ate one of these this morning, plain, no butter or spread, and I can envision eating one of these just like that with some taco soup, bean soup, or southwestern salad… just about anything like that really.
Heathy Eating Tip:
Did you know flaxseed meal is a good heart healthy food? It also helps keep your hunger satisfied longer. What a wonderful combination of benefits!
Flaxseed meal is used in this recipe and many other gluten free, Paleo, and Low Carb microwave muffin recipes. You can also sprinkle it on your cereal, with your oatmeal, or in your blender when you’re making a protein shake.
I sprinkle flaxseed meal in plain, organic Greek yogurt along with some Chia seeds and a little Stevia and pure vanilla extract for my breakfast sometimes too. Yum, and that keeps me feeling fresh-minded and filled all morning long!
Below is the recipe for this cinnamon microwave muffin.
Additionally then, check the site for an upcoming recipe for Paleo Pumpkin butter which is all I kept thinking about as I ate my muffin plain this morning alongside my bulletproof coffee.
Coconut oil is good for your heart as well and has tons of other health benefits too! Fat isn’t just “fat” when you use coconut oil!
- 1 Lg. Egg (preferably organic)
- 2 Tbsp. Coconut Flour
- 1 Tbsp. Flaxseed Meal
- 1/4 tsp. Baking Powder (use a gluten free baking powder for pure gluten free)
- 1 Pinch Sea Salt (approximately 1/8 tsp or so)
- 2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
- 2 Tbsp. Erythritol
- 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
- Spray coffee mug with coconut oil baking spray.
- Break egg into cup and whisk with a fork until fluffy.
- Add remaining ingredients to the egg and whisk again.
- Microwave on high for 1:30 minutes.
- You can use 2 Tbsp. of Coconut Palm Sugar instead of the Erythritol if you wish. That makes it slightly higher in carbs but still works as a Paleo or Whole 30 recipe.
- The original recipe I used and adapted to make my muffins here mentioned you could add one tablespoon (at a time) water if your dough seems really stiff... which could mean you used a little too much coconut flour. If you add water, you may need to increase your baking time by 30 seconds or so. I did NOT add water, and my muffins cooked in 1 and 1/2 minutes and was as moist as any muffin you could make with any traditional recipe.
- The original recipe also mentioned you could save half of the Erythirtol or Coconut Sugar to mix with cinnamon and sprinkle on top before cooking. I just put all the sweetener and cinnamon right in the muffin and was very happy with the taste.
Do you need to buy Erythritol for this or other Paleo, Low Carb recipes?
You can get it at your local health food grocery store, at some other retail stores, or here at my Amazon affiliate link. If you purchase anything from my link, there is no addition cost to you, but it will help provide some funding for my work here at The New American Home. Thank you in advance.
