    *Pixie*'s Note:

    An individual muffin that you can whip up fresh and hot for breakfast. No flour or sugar and only 3 net carbs!!! Plus 7 grams of fiber. This little beauty is based on a recipe yogi told me about in the low carb forum. I have tweaked it to not use butter and to be a bit lighter in texture than the original. This recipe is suitable for phase 1 of the South Beach diet (the 3 tablespoons of ground flax seeds count as the portion of nuts allowed per day). I find these are very filling and prevent me from feeling starving all morning.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Spray a microwave safe ramekin or bowl with cooking spray (or use a muffin liner).
    2. 2
      Mix the egg and splenda until well combined (I use a fork), add the yogurt and blend well.
    3. 3
      Mix in the ground flaxseed, cinnamon and baking powder until well combined.
    4. 4
      Pour in ramekin and microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds (note the ramekin should be no more than half full since these do rise a lot, if it is too small they will overflow).
    5. 5
      These taste best served hot.

      Tried this last night and was impressed. I split the batter in half and made 2, and reduced the micro time to 1 min 10 seconds. Shared with a couple of bread free friends and they were grateful to have "bread". I want to experiment with this and make is savory so I can have it with soups, etc. Absolutely loved it for what it was. I will make this frequently and would give it more stars if that were possible. I did add 1/4 tsp vanilla and Penzeys "Cake" spice. It was delicious. I even liked it cold...

      Rarely am I so surprised by a recipe...usually I can imagine what it will taste like by reading the ingredients, and know if my family will like it or not. I expected that this one would be something I would settle for, knowing that it is low carb and phase one suitable....but I thought that it was great! Fast, easy and with great texture, just needing some flavour tweakings for personal preference it truely deserves a 5 star. I noticed that the recipe had been submitted in 2007, and since microwaves are now stronger in power, I cooked my muffin for only 1 minute and 15 seconds which was just perfect. It remained moist, but fully cooked, and with a texture not unlike a sponge cake, which to me is a good thing! I am going to experiment also with savory seasonings so I can serve with soup or main courses.
      Thank you so much for submitting this recipe.

      I made this because my doctor wants me to add more flax seed to my diet so I wasn't expecting too much, but this is awesome. I will definitely be making this again and again - maybe adding some fruit and/or nuts although it is very good as is. Thanks for a fabulous recipe. Just wanted to add an update. I took this recipe to my doctor and she said this is great. She told me that my cholesterol is 32 points too high and that if I eat this every day, it should lower it enough that I won't have to go on pills. So thank you, thank you, thank you. I hate taking pills. Just wanted to add - I've been using flavored yogurt and omitting the sugar. Yummy.
