Ingredients (makes 2 servings):

Basic savoury mug muffin mix:
Add:
  • 60 g smoked salmon (2.1 oz)
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped chives or spring onion
  • serve with 2 dollops full-fat cream cheese or sour cream (60 g / 2.1 oz)

If you need to make this recipe nut-free, use more flaxmeal (same amount) or coconut flour (half the amount). When using ingredients, always go by their weight, especially in case of baked goods. Measures such as cups may vary depending on a product / brand. When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

Instructions:

  1. Place all the dry ingredients in a small bowl and combine well. |Keto Salmon & Cream Cheese Mug Muffin

  4. Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds. When done, top with a dollop of cream cheese and enjoy!
    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 / 350 F and cook for about 12-15 minutes or until cooked in the centre. |Keto Salmon & Cream Cheese Mug Muffin

Thanks a million for all your recipes. They're delicious! Just wondering though if the flax meal can be left out? Would psyllium husks or something be a good substitute?

Thank you Jen! I'd substitute it with more almond flour (same amount) or 1-2 tbsp of coconut flour Smile

Do these hold up well enough to be fried into patties? Can I substitute canned pink salmon? Thanks!!

Hi Aleta, I'm not sure but I wouldn't fry these - baking in the oven would be better. Yes, you can use canned salmon too Smile

Is there anything that can be used in place of almond flour? We have a nut allergy in the house. Thanks!

Reply

Yes, you can use just flax or sesame seed meal (same amount as almond flour) or try coconut flour (half the amount or add more water / cream). I'd personally go for sesame seed meal & flax combination Wink

Recipe calls for "2 dollops full-fat cream cheese".  Is this correct or should it be "2 dollops full-fat sour cream"?

Reply

Actually it can be both - I'll add it now Smile
