My quick and easy McKeto Muffin is low carb, high protein, healthy fats, and what’s more is filling and very tasty scrumptious!
The almond flower-based bread only takes as long to make and cook as it takes to grill a few rashers of bacon!
I Love to eat this as my first meal of the day on my 16:8 intermittent fasting diet (around 11am), and it fills me up until lunch time. This way I get the double whammy benefit of a keto meal with the metabolism-boosting effects of intermittent fasting.
While some people find this quick keto bread a little “egg” tasting, I personally think that this perfectly compliments the flavour of the bacon and cheese, and reminds me of eating a muffin style breakfast from a well-known fast-food chain from where I got the name from (other fast-food providers are available :P).
Below is a step-by-step photo walk through of how to make this yummy McKeto Muffin.
3 tbsp ground almond flower
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp baking powder
Pinch of low-sodium salt (Lo-Salt)
1 tsp low-carb ketchup
Bacon (grilled) (I use bacon medallions as most of the fat is removed)
Enough mature cheddar, or cheese of your choice!
1)Put ingredients in a bowl
To a small bowl add the almond flower, baking powder, salt, olive oil, and the cracked egg.
2) Whisk and mix
Whisk or mix vigorously to form a batter (only takes about 10 seconds).
3) Poor into a greased microwave-safe container
Grease a microwave-safe container with a little olive oil and spatula in the McKeto batter mix.
Microwave on full power for 90 seconds (That’s right….only 90s)!
5) Turn on to a plate
Allow to cool for a minute, loosen the bread at the sides using a standard knife (knife and fork), and gently turn out on to a plate.
6) Cut in half
Cut in half using a bread knife.
7) Toast in a toaster
Toast in a toaster on a normal medium toast setting. Alternatively, lightly grill until golden brown.
8) Assemble with low-carb ketchup, bacon, and melted cheese
9) Eat! Om nom nom 😛
