Ingredients
  

Muffins:

  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup flaxmeal
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream or coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • ¼ cup grated cheddar cheese
  • Pinch salt

Filling:

  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp ghee or butter for frying
  • 1 Tbsp butter or cream cheese for spreading
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese or other hard type cheese
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 2 cups greens lettuce, kale, chard, spinach, watercress, etc. + less than 1 g net carbs per serving)
  • Optional: 4 slices crisped up bacon or Pancetta

Instructions
 

  • Place all the dry ingredients in a small bowl and combine well.
  • Add the egg, cream, water and mix well using a fork.
  • Grate the cheese and add it to the mixture. Combine well and place in single serving ramekins.
  • Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds.
    Tips for cooking in the oven: If you don’t have a microwave, I suggest you make 4-8 servings at once. Preheat the oven to 175 °C and cook for about 12-15 minutes or until cooked in the centre.
  • Meanwhile, fry the eggs. Cook the eggs until the egg white is opaque and the yolks still runny. Season with salt and pepper and take off the heat.
  • Cut the muffins in half and spread some butter on the inside of each of the halves.
  • Top each with slices of cheese, egg and mustard. Optionally, serve with greens (lettuce, spinach, watercress, chard, etc.) and bacon.
  • Enjoy immediately! The muffins (without the filling) can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Notes

If you need to make this recipe nut free use more flaxmeal (same amount) or coconut flour (half the amount).
