  • Melt the butter in the microwave - this takes ca 30 seconds.
  • In a bowl, whisk your egg.
  • Add your melted butter and nut milk, then the almond flour, coconut flour and baking powder. Mix until smooth. If you wish, add a pinch of salt.
  • Fill into a WELL-BUTTERED ramekin or mug (equally well-buttered)
  • Microwave on high for 90 seconds.
  • If necessary, run a knife around the edges of your dish and turn muffins over onto a plate.
  • Cut in half and toast.
  • Enjoy!


I made these low carb English muffins in a mug with a diameter of 7 cm. ****Update - I have since made them in classic ramekins like these with a 9 cm diameter which makes them a bit flatter but still tall/high enough to cut in half.
If you make 2 muffins at the same time, increase the microwave time to 2 minutes.
