Keto Muffin

July 27, 2022

This is a keto-friendly muffin recipe that can be made in 90 seconds in the microwave. Even though I’m not on a keto diet specifically, I think it’s a healthy and convenient substitute for traditional bread in something like an egg muffin or a mini grilled cheese sandwich.

egg muffin

  • 1 serving
  • 6 mins
  • 2 mins
  • 8 mins
  • Ingredients

    • 21 grams almond flour
    • 1 egg
    • 3 grams olive oil
    • salt
    • 1/2 Tbsp. butter



    1. Generously grease a microwave-safe ramekin with butter.
    2. Mix the almond flour, egg, olive oil, and a dash of salt well until there are no lumps. You can use a hand mixer to speed this process up, or pour the contents into an airtight container and shake vigorously.
    3. Pour the mixture into the buttered ramekin.
    4. Microwave the ramekin for 90 seconds.
    5. Allow the ramekin to cool for about 30 seconds and then turn upside down onto a cutting board. You may need to use a knife to gently separate the bread from the bottom of the ramekin.
    6. Split the muffin and toast it in a medium-hot skillet for about 2 minutes on each side.
