3-Minute Gluten-Free Bread in a Mug

As may of you may know by now, I am obsessed with food. So it's not surprising that i tend to put on those pounds now and and then. I really should NOT be eating everything I make, especially things like cupcakes, scones and all those other heavenly delights that make life worth living. But you know, sometimes you just can't help it and after making a dozen delicious cupcakes, what is one supposed to do with them anyway? 
Now if you've been following this blog for awhile, you'll notice that this is similar to one I made before. That's true except that this one doesn't have the nuts and seeds that the other one did. This version is plain, simple and really so simple to make. 

Quick 3-Minute Low-Carb Bread in a Mug


1/3 cup almond flour
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 1/2 tablespoons grapeseed oil ( you can use butter, coconut, or olive oil instead )


1.Grease one mug with some oil. 
2. Put all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well with a fork. 
3. Pour the mixture into the mug. Microwave on high for 90 seconds. You might need to cook it a few seconds longer depending on your microwave oven. 
4. Let it cool in the mug for 3 minutes. 
5. Gently pop the bread out of the mug and slice. 

I also made a video tutorial of this recipe so you might want to check that out too. You'll see just how easy it really is to make. 


Slice them up and pop them under a toaster oven to make them even better. I hope you try this recipe out as it's one of my go-to comfort foods. Let me know what you think in the comments below and if you haven't done so, subscribe to my blog for updates. 

Hope you're all having a great day!
