What's the best way to prepare my muffin?

Well, it is so simple - just add water in a coffee mug and microwave for 90 seconds. That's it!

Sometimes a short video is better than words, so here goes:

How much water shall I add to the mix?

The recommended amount is about 4 measuring tablespoons or 1/4 measuring cup of water. 

Note that the resulting texture may vary based on the amount of water you use, your microwave power or the coffee mug. We recommend that you note to yourself the amount of water you use when making your first muffin. If the outcome is too moist, then just use a little less water with your next muffin, or microwave for an extra 5-10 seconds. If it's too dry, add a little bit of water.

In any case, we promise that the muffin will always taste heavenly :)

What size coffee mug shall I use?

We recommend using a 13-15oz mug. When heated in the microwave, the batter rises to about 3 times the original height and then settles down into a yummy muffin. Using a large enough coffee mug will ensure nothing spills out in the process.

Does it matter if the water is cold, warm or hot?

Nope. It works just fine with tap water.

My muffins don't come out exactly like yours. What shall I do?

There are 3 things you can do to improve the muffin's texture.

If your muffins are too moist, you may try either of the three (but not all together)

  1. Change the amount of water - use a bit less water for a dryer texture
  2. Change the microwave duration - microwave for an extra 5-10 seconds for a bit of extra fluffiness
  3. Change the size of coffee mug - a wider mug will make a dryer texture

How can you claim that your product is Paleo if you need to use a microwave to prepare it?

Well, for a starter, cavemen did not have internet either, yet we still use it, right? :) But the real answer is that, believe it or not, microwave cooking is in many cases better for you than oven baking or even steaming. Main reason is that microwaving is one of the most healthful ways to cook your food while keeping most of its nutritional value. This has been long ago proven over multiple studies. Here's another good read about the subject.

See what the Paleo Mom has to say about this topic.
Bottom line, we think that Paleo needs to be healthy but also practical, and as long you are using your microwave in a safe way and with the right tools, then you should not fear of it.

And if this is not yet good enough, you can always make yourself Paleo pancakes using the same muffin mix!

Can I make your muffins in a regular oven?

MuffinElse muffins were designed for the microwave. Our muffins come in single serving packets and serve a specific need - have a freshly made muffin whenever you want one, no special preparations needed. Because sometimes you just want a muffin ;-)
