Calories: 240kcal


  • 3.5 inch ramekin (9 cm, 6 ounce capacity) or microwave-safe mug


  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour 8g
  • 1 tablespoon almond flour (extra fine), 6g
  • 1 tablespoon butter 14g, salted or unsalted. Use olive oil or coconut oil for dairy-free
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tablespoon almond milk or other nut milk, 7g
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder


  • Whisk the egg with a fork in a small mixing bowl.
  • Add the melted butter and nut milk. Continue whisking with the fork until combined.
  • Now add the dry ingredients - almond flour, coconut flour and baking powder. Stir until a smooth batter forms.
  • Grease a ramekin with butter or oil. Then, fill the muffin batter into the ramekin. Level the top and microwave on high for 90 seconds.
  • Remove the muffin from the ramekin and turn it out onto a plate. You may need to run a knife around the edges to release it.
  • Slice the English muffin in half and serve it toasted and buttered.

Optional: Oven Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350F. Instead of microwaving, bake the muffin in the oven for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.



2g net carbs per muffin. Makes 1 keto English muffin.
I melt the butter in the microwave. This takes around 30 seconds. I use the same ramekin I later cook the muffin in. Swirl the butter around to coat it everywhere.
A 3.5-inch or 9-cm ramekin with a 6-ounce capacity is the perfect size for this muffin recipe. However, you can use any microwavable cup or mug with a flat bottom.
I have made this recipe in a number of microwaves. 90 seconds always seems to be the perfect cooking duration. However, the muffins may need 5 seconds shorter or longer in your microwave.
Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
