Lemon Poppyseed Muffin in a Mug
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This lucious low carb lemon poppyseed muffin is an "S" breakfast if you're following Trim Healthy Mama. One of my favorite ways to start the day, you can either bake it in a mug in the micro, or in a regular muffin tin to get 3 muffins. Recipes below are for a single muffin, and for a master mix that makes 16 mug muffins.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Trim Healthy Mama
Serves: 1
  • Single Muffin in a Mug
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed meal (Golden Flax is my favorite)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour (or sub 2 more T of golden flax, or 2 T of almond flour)
  • OR 3½ tablespoons Trim Healthy Mama baking mix (instead of flax & coconut flour)
  • ½ lemon, juiced (or 2 tablespoons lemon juice)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ teaspoon poppy seeds
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 dashes Stevia Extract, or your sweetener to taste
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2-3 drops lemon essential oil (I love NOW brand)
  • Master Mix
  • 2 cup golden flax meal
  • 1 cup coconut flour (or another 2 cups of flax meal or 2 cups almond meal)
  • 2 tablespoons poppyseeds or chia seeds
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon THM Stevia Extract
  1. Single Muffin Instructions:
  2. Blend all ingredients in a mug or a small bowl (if you plan on baking in the oven).
  3. Mix really well to make sure that your butter and egg are evenly incorporated.
  4. Bake in the microwave for 50 seconds or so, or in the oven at *350 in 3 regular sized muffin cups.
  5. If baking in muffin cups, greasing the lining paper is a good idea, or use silicone liners for easier removal.Master Mix Instructions
  6. Blend all dry ingredients in a jar.
  7. To prepare a muffin in a mug, add ¼ cup of dry mix (1/3 cup if you used all flax or almond meal/flax), one egg, juice of ½ a lemon, 1 T of butter, and a couple drops of lemon essential oil.
  8. Mix well, to incorporate the butter & egg.
  9. Bake according to the instructions above.
Underdone is way tastier than overdone. Feel free to quadruple the recipe amounts to make one dozen breakfast muffins.

Net carbs: I calculate 7 for the whole muffin
