Gluten-free bread in a mug (Makes 4 small round slices) 


2 tsp coconut oil

1 large egg

2 tbsp ground almonds or ground walnuts

3 tbsp ground flaxseeds

½ tsp baking powder

Generous pinch of salt


Microwave the coconut oil in a mug with straight sides for 20-30 seconds on high, then use the oil to grease the sides of the mug.

In a small bowl, thoroughly mix together the egg, 2 tsp water, the nuts, ground flaxseeds, baking powder and salt.

Pour the mixture into the mug.

Stir the mixture with a fork to incorporate the coconut oil, making sure the top is level.

Microwave for 1 minute on high.

If the bread still appears very moist, microwave it for another 10-20 seconds or so.

However, make sure that you avoid overcooking as this will make the texture very rubbery.

Tip the bread out of the cup — it may need loosening with a knife.

If it is still runny at the bottom, put it back in the cup and microwave it on high for a further 10-20 seconds.

Allow it to cool for a few minutes on its side, then cut it into slices.
