Keto Breakfast Muffins
These are quite similar to my Quick Keto Chia Bread recipe I posted last week, except I made these in ramekins which create perfect little muffin shapes (which I then sliced in half). This recipe will make 2 muffins and yield 4 slices, as pictured. The macros have been calculated per 1 serving (1 muffin cut into 2 slices). They can also be toasted by simply frying in a little olive oil. Top with a poached egg or butter and good-quality prosciutto, like I did on my Low-carb Prosciutto Muffins. Enjoy!

Keto Breakfast Muffins
Delicious, instant muffins yielding two servings (2 muffins cut into 4 slices). The macros are calculated per 1 serving (2 slices) so enjoy warm topped with butter, or toast in a pan and top with poached eggs...
Place the almond flour, ground chia, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs. NOTE: Do not attempt to grind your own chia seeds, its best to source ground chia, which has a fine texture and is essential for this recipe to work.
Mix to combine the dry mixture. Add the whisked eggs to this mixture and combine very well.
Pour the mixture into two greased ramekins.
Place into the microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds, then remove by sliding a knife around the edges to remove them.
Once cool enough to handle, turn it on its side and slice each ‘muffin’ into 2 slices, yielding 4 halves in total.

User feedback informs me that Ground (milled) Flaxseed works just as well if you have no Ground (milled) Chia Seeds on hand. Use whichever suits your budget, and stick to the one you have the most success with. (macros calculated on chia, as per my recipe above)

Private: Keto Breakfast Muffins
These little zero carb ‘muffins’ are something of a mini-frittata. They are very rich, so one batch could last you a couple of mornings (they store well in the fridge). Pop them in the microwave for a quick keto-friendly breakfast. Do change up the filling – mushroom, peppers and different cheese all work well.
