Low Fodmap Muggin (muffin in a mug!) – the perfect quick breakfast

Low Fodmap for LifeI posted this photo on Instagram and Facebook and I’ve had a few requests for the recipe! This is a recipe adapted from a lovely blog: My Clean Plate at WordPress. The reason why I like it is that it only takes a few minutes to make, is very nutritious and filling, and after it is cooked it is portable if you wanted to take it to work or eat on the go! I make this on the mornings that my family have breakfast cereal which is about two days a week (the other days I make eggs or low fodmap pancakes – recipes to come!) My littlest taste testers also likes this muffin in a mug!

Low Fodmap Muggin (Muffin in a Mug)

  • Servings: 1
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Take a mug and crack one egg into it, beat with a fork.

To this add:

  • 1/4 cup of finely ground flaxeed meal – recently I have also been using a great new product by Celebrate Health – see the pic –  which is a lovely blend of Flaxseeds [70%] with almonds, brazil  nuts and walnuts – all great low fodmap nuts! You could make your own blend of flaxseed meal and almond meal which would also be lovely, or just stick to plain flaxseed…Low Fodmap For Life
  • 4 teaspoons of melted coconut oil or macadamia oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of gluten free baking powder
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons of rice malt syrup, maple syrup, pure stevia or sugar – I usually use 1 teaspoon of rice malt syrup and 1 mini scoops of pure stevia

Mix all together and put in the microwave for 1 minute on the highest setting.

This is a recipe you could experiment with; I am thinking of incorporating pumpkin or cacoa for something new, even zucchini (courgette) and cheese could work…

If you find some successful combinations please share them!

  1. I got a little excited I tried it with cocoa and dessicated coconut this morning and served it with coconut milk, but all in all while it was tasty, it was too rich for breakfast and I now feel a little queasy…. It would be amazing for a quick and easy dessert though! I added 4 teaspoons of cocoa/cacoa, 4 teaspoons of dessicated coconut and some coconut milk. Let me know what you have tried and how successful it was…

  2. Tried this recipe today using a mix of flax seed meal and LSA (Linseed, sunflower, almond mix) and it was really yummy. I have been looking for low carb fodmap recipes, particularly something I could have for breakfast, so I am glad I found this! Thanks so much for posting it. Now I am going to scour your blog for more 🙂

  3. Yum – thanks for sharing. I am on a low fodmap diet but came here because a friend gave me a big bag of flaxseed and I didn’t know what to do with it. I added drinking chocolate to the mix and enjoyed it with yoghurt and strawberries. It was excellent. This will be a regular in my kitchen from now on.
