1-Minute Keto Muffins

If you are new to low-carb, these are an absolute lifesaver. Sweet or savoury, 1-minute keto muffins have got you covered.

I have given you 5 variations below, but members from my Facebook group, have probably given my 100 more.

If you come up with your own favourite flavour, please make sure to share it with us in the comments. We love hearing from you!

How To Serve Keto Muffins

1-minute keto muffins are my latest go-to recipe. They only require 4 ingredients and are ready in uh-um … 1 minute.

Not only that, but I have also been experimenting with them by adding other ingredients to make them sweet or savoury (see the 5 variations below).

They can replace bread, bagels, muffins and even cupcakes. The possibilities are almost endless.

I serve these low-carb muffins with soup, with bacon and eggs (say hello to your very own keto egg mcmuffin), or sweet as a quick dessert with whipped cream.

Super Fast Keto Muffin “Bread”

These super-fast 1-minute keto muffins have quickly become an absolute staple in our house. We keep on dreaming up new variations. The fact that they are keto, is an absolute bonus.

If you are in the middle of the crazy morning rush, your pantry is running low and you don’t know what to pack for lunch, make a quick and easy keto muffin, split them in half, add your child’s regular favourite sandwich filling, and tell them it’s a mini slider!

Technically, I should call these 45-second muffins, as my microwave is 1220W. You may need to adjust cooking times according to your microwave. There is also an alternative coking method in the recipe if you don’t have a microwave.

These are the variations we have dreamt up so far, simply add the following –

  • sweet  – 1 tsp sweetener
  • nutty  – 2 tsp nut butter and 1 tsp sweetener
  • cinnamon  – 1 tsp sweetener and 1 tsp cinnamon. When cooked, also add butter and sprinkle with sweetener and cinnamon
  • cheesy  – 2 tbsp grated/shredded cheese and 1 tsp chopped chives
  • spinach and feta  – 2 tbsp grated shredded cheese and some chopped cooked spinach leaves

Once the 1-minute keto muffins are cooked, you can eat them as they are or you can toast them. I gave my toaster away 3 years ago, so I lightly fry them in the frying pan when I am making a big breakfast.

But my favourite way is to eat them hot with lashings of butter, sweetener and cinnamon.

Zero Waste with Purposeful Cooking

One of the best things about small batch recipes is that nothing goes to waste. It’s just enough to enjoy without worrying about food spoilage.

That’s one of the many reasons why I think cooking with purpose can make a huge difference in our food budget.

One of the biggest concerns new low-carb followers have is that concern for the cost of speciality ingredients but you can easily pick up some tips on how to eat healthy and save money.

Luckily you will probably have all the ingredients you need to make these gluten-free low-carb muffins, in your pantry right now. So there’s no need to head out to the grocery store and buy anything new.

1-Minute Keto Muffin Toppings

Or for a decadent treat, why not add some homemade sugar-free Nutella to top them off. Watch out however, they could become addictive.

The keto muffins would also be a quick and tasty idea for easy keto casserole dumplings.

Simply prepare the 1-minute keto muffins as per the recipe, then cut them in half and pop them top of any casserole, maybe even sprinkle the casserole and dumplings with cheese before putting the lid back on. How amazing would that be?

If it is a lamb casserole, I would add 1 tsp dried or fresh rosemary to each muffin mix.

Coconut Flour Variations

RECIPE UPDATE & TOP TIPS: Readers have a love/hate relationship with this recipe.  I have discovered this is because coconut flour quality varies so much. So 1 tsp of one coconut flour brand may be equivalent to 1 tbsp of another coconut flour brand – hence the variations we have seen in the comments below.

This is the only drawback of using these wonderful new unprocessed whole-food ingredients, they aren’t as standardised as the ultra-processed and high-carb baking ingredients out there.

5 top tips:
1: Ensure you measure carefully. You wouldn’t believe how many readers have got the baking powder mixed up with the coconut flour
2: Mix thoroughly. You don’t want a clump of coconut flour or baking powder stuck in the corner of your microwaveable mug.
3: Allow the batter to thicken. Coconut flour has the most amazing ability to absorb and swell when liquid (the egg) is added. Not allowing it to thicken is when some readers have decided to microwave it for a longer period and end up with a dry overcooked muffin.
4: If all the tips above fail to create a regular bread batter for the keto muffin, add another tsp of coconut flour and mix again.
5: Flavour, flavour, flavour. Whether it is more spices and cheese for a savoury muffin or additional sweetener and cinnamon for a sweet muffin, always flavour to your personal taste. No one wants a dry tasteless muffin. There’s no fun in that.
