Recipe

Low Carb Pumpkin Microwave Muffins are the perfect, hearty breakfast or snack and are packed with protein and fiber.

I have been making microwave muffins for awhile now and am always on the lookout for new ways to enjoy them, especially low carb versions since they can be a great replacement for a traditional muffin. Recently I have been experimenting with a pumpkin version since it is fall and the time of year for everything pumpkin. After some experimenting, I ended on this yummy version using a combination of coconut flour and golden flaxseed meal. You could use regular flaxseed meal, but the golden variety is less harsh and has a nuttier flavor in my opinion. Mix everything up in your mug and pop it in the microwave, that's it. For a delicious topping, mix some cream cheese with a no-calorie sweetener and a touch of milk for an instant cream cheese frosting to go on top.
