Two Minute "Carb" Fake Out

There comes a time when you just got have something “carby” like … generally, for me, it’s on Saturday or Sunday morning, usually after I’ve had one too many adult beverages the night before. Carby stuff in the morning just makes me feel better, what can I say?  Of course, when you are avoiding grains and trying to stay low carb, it sort of sucks! AND, seriously, IF I was truly committed to avoiding grains and staying low carb, I would have booted the alcohol out the door, right? 


*I kind of figured this would be good for FRIDAY morning 
after a day of good eats and drinks so wanted to share it again!*

Back in the old days, I’d do a drive through at BK or McD’s and buy a breakfast sandwich … and THEN I started to make these breakfast sandwiches, which were the bomb. However, LOTS and LOTS of grains, carbs, etc. … things that I just try to avoid to keep the inflammation down. 

*Sorry, OLD picture 😑


Fortunately, there are people out there who know how to make fake food out of real food … so there, we can have some carbs, bread-like things in the morning. Well, at least, we can pretend it’s an english muffin or biscuit!

These little fake things are easy enough to make, although it did take me a few times to get the timing right. The original recipe suggested 2 to 2 1/2 minutes so my first time I started with 2 minutes 15 seconds. They were rubbery. Next time 2 minutes and pretty good … I think it depends on the size of your egg (the smaller, the less time) and your microwave so you might need to make some minor adjustments to the time as well.


1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tbs coconut flour
1 tbs almond flour
1 tbs full fat coconut milk (from a can)
1/2 tsp baking powder

Dump the dry ingredients in a microwave safe mug and give a quick stir to mix up.  Add egg and coconut milk, mix to combine.

Place mug in the microwave for 2 minutes, on high.

When cooked, simply turn cup upside down on a plate and let the muffin slide right out … cut in half, english muffin style, top with whatever you wish (ME? I like an egg, over easy and use the “muffin” to sop up the wet yolk) … enjoy!

NOTE: If you are looking for something a little more croissant-like, try these bad boys!

forward to sharing with some of these
