Are you sometimes craving a good bakery style muffin? I do and I like to fix my food craving very quickly. That’s how I created this simple flaxseed muffin in a mug recipe. It’s a very healthy recipe made of a few simple low-carb ingredients. I baked my muffin in my microwave for an even faster result but you can bake yours in a regular oven if you like. It simply takes a bit longer that’s why I recommend to cook yours in a mug in the microwave if you crave something sweet now!
So, this is what you need to make a delicious bakery style flaxseed muffin in a mug:
Flaxseed meal – flaxseed is high in fiber and omega 3, plus it’s very low carb so a great flour base to create healthy low carb muffins
Coconut oil – you can use any vegetable oil in this recipe but coconut oil is a healthy oil full of antifungal and antibacterial properties without saying that the flavor it adds is the bomb!
Egg – don’t replace the egg in this recipe it won’t work! Trust me I tried and there’s no great egg-free option for this recipe.
Baking powder – or 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Sugar free crystal sweetener – my favorite sweetener is this one, it’s a natural sugar-free sweetener, a combo of erythritol and stevia. Check out my review of keto friendly sweeteners to learn more!
Raspberries – optional, you can simply make the recipe without fruits or use blueberries, lemon zest or orange zest to add healthy low-carb flavors
Sugar free chocolate chips – optional you can replace this by any kind of chopped nuts like walnuts, almonds or pecan.

Oven or microwave?
I love to bake my flaxseed muffin into a mug in the microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds. However, you can also use your oven, simply make sure you are using a ovenproof ramekin or muffin tray. Bake your recipe at 180C (350F) for about 12-15 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the muffin come out clean. You can also quadruple the recipe to make a larger batter and fill a 12-hole mini muffin tray to make small size flaxseed muffins for your week.
