Chestnut Flour Muffin-in-a-Mug

We have discovered another amazing grain-free flour: chestnut flour! Made from starchy chestnuts, it’s easy to use and has a slightly sweet, whole-wheatish (that’s totally a word) flavor that makes this bread taste so much like real bread that you’ll wonder if there’s wheat in it (but there isn’t)! This muffin is great with breakfast or as a snack. You can buy chestnut flour on Amazon, or you can check your local health food store. Enjoy!

Whisk egg with coconut milk. Stir in flours, coconut flakes, baking powder, and apple cider vinegar and mix very well (chestnut flour tends to clump). Pour into a large mug or small ramekin. Microwave on HIGH (100 percent power) for 90 seconds or so. Cool and enjoy!

      Hi Deb,
      I have never tried it with other cooking methods besides the microwave, but I’m sure you could try baking it. I would try 350 or 375 degrees Fahrenheit, though I am not sure of the baking time. I’m sure it would work to some degree. Let me know if you try it!
