Evy's notes for this recipe:
No flour so it is gluten free. Low in carbs too. Very easy and quick. Heavier than a flour muffin but still tasty. Breakfast time or snack time it only takes a minute.

Directions

1
Spray inside of coffee mug with cooking spray or grease inside of cup with butter. In a large mug (or small bowl if you prefer) mix dry ingredients. Add egg and butter. Mix well.
2
If using the small bowl you can put mixture into mug and place in microwave for 1 minute. Longer depending on the microwave.
3
Remove, slice and enjoy. These slices can be a pancake substitute just fine. Your creativity will have this recipe being your go to for a snack any time or any day.
*Maple syrup can be a sugar substitute in this recipe as well. Maple syrup has vitamins and minerals. I like it better than honey.*

Just saw your recipe and made it. This is beyond good, esp. if one's been on a low carb diet ;o) Thanks for posting this wonderful treat! It's excellent!

This is on the list for breakfast. I am always looking for something I can make that is not sausage and bacon! thanks.

Recently purchased a cookbook and the author has a section of things you can take with you on a trip if you are on a special diet. This would be easy if you are traveling and have access to a microwave in a hotel or a guest at a friends. "Pack" the dry ingredients in baggies inside a plastic container and get the egg and butter from you host. MUFFIN IN A CUP
