These are wonderful for us low carb folks!
They are filling and add variety to the usual options.
Now days, these breads have many different variations and go by different names...mug bread...keto muffin...muffin-in-a-minute, etc. They are usually microwaved but can be baked as well (of course that will take longer but it will still work). Depending on the recipe you choose, they may replace English muffins, toast, sandwich bread, cake, etc.
This is a recipe I originally got from DitchTheCarbs. (Head over there if you want even more flavors to try) I'm including it on my blog because of course it has become one of my go-to recipes and I want you to know about it :)
LOW CARB MUG BREAD RECIPE (2 NET CARBS)
2 tsp coconut flour (scroll down for almond flour version)
A pinch of baking soda
A pinch of salt
2 Tbsp shredded cheddar
Add egg to a large mug or ramekin (greased or sprayed) & whisk it up.
Add coconut flour and dry ingredients..whisk it all together.
Stir in cheese.
Microwave 1 minute.
Slice muffin into 3 or 4 wheels.
I then fried a couple sausages in butter, split open the muffin and fried that in the grease!
**I added black pepper/red pepper sprinkles and garlic granules.
Green onions, cooked bacon, ham, or sausage bits, etc can also be used in the filling.
ALMOND FLOUR VERSION
3 Tbsp almond flour (the finer the better..Bob's Red Mill is a good one)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp butter or coconut oil melted
Whisk butter & egg first
Then whisk in dry ingredients.
Microwave in a mug for 90 seconds.
Cut into 3 or 4 slices and fry in butter or coconut oil.
It is similar to the coconut flour one I like but this one isn't boingy lol.
Both are yummy. I put seasonings like garlic powder, cayenne etc in it..or a tbsp of shredded cheese w sausage bits if I feel like it. or just put a sausage link in and fold..pig in blanket style as shown above.
These work as a breakfast sandwich bread or lunch bread! Give them a try..they will certainly get you by if you are craving things that require bread!
