Single Serve Mint Chocolate Flax Muffin {Gluten & Sugar Free}

Single Serve Mint Chocolate Flax Muffin is a gluten free, low carb and sugar free breakfast or snack anytime recipe!


Would you believe you could have a mint chocolatey muffin for breakfast when you’re looking to lose weight? How about a muffin like this that is only 100 calories and low in carbs but full of fiber and protein?? Dreaming you are not. Possible and made in 2 minutes in a microwave or a bit longer in the oven. Either way it’s a match made in heaven for any busy working person who needs a hearty, but healthy breakfast !


This recipe idea came to me after I made my other two versions of this single serve muffin, a pumpkin flavor and a peanut butter flavor. Someone on the blog had asked for a chocolate version and I was more than happy to oblige but I wanted a little change of pace from a standard chocolate muffin. So mint was the choice! You can certainly choose to eliminate the peppermint extract if you’re not a fan and just use vanilla extract and vanilla or chocolate flavored stevia.


Super moist and filled with fiber so it’s completely filling and satisfying! You’ll be glad you only can make one at a time because you may want to overindulge in this beautiful muffin! Topped here with a little Greek Yogurt and cacao nibs!

**This recipe can be substituted for any breakfast or snack recipe in Week 3 of my Sugar Detox plan.

  1. This looks great, I am always looking for breakfast alternatives, is there anyway to substitute the mint though? For something else, I have a repulsion of mint in foods.

    • Absolutely, maybe orange extract or just vanilla extract.Both of those flavors are also in liquid stevia as well.

  2. Love the idea of a single serve chocolate treat that’s actually healthy! Looks fantastic Brenda!

  3. I love your website and have enjoyed many, many of your recipes! This looks super delish but it appears you have the nutritional stats incorrect. Just thought you may want to double check;)

  4. GREAT recipe! I just love stevia to make healthy foods seem decadent:) Plus, fun little muffin cakes are just a must! Perfect portions, and they’re like a kid-friendly treat for adults:)

  5. This looks great! If I don’t have liquid stevia, would powder work? If so, what would you recommend as the appropriate amount to equate to the 2 droppers of liquid?

  6. Yumm!! Sounds like a perfect snack if you are craving some chocolate or something sweet!

  7. I love this recipe. Didn’t have the stevia with peppermint so used 5 drops of liquid stevia with just the peppermint extract. It still tasted quite minty but not overpowering. I have tried quite a few quick flax muffins on the net but always come back to this site as both the peanut butter and this one are so moist and don’t taste like cardboard or overly salty. Thanks for sharing another fantastic recipe.

    • Thanks so much! I’m so happy you’ve tried other recipes and love mine!! I try to never post a dry recipe, hate that LOL!

  8. hi there …… i live in canada and we can not get liquid stevia…….could you please start adding how much stevia powder to use
    and i am curious that in your explantion before the recipe you said 100 calories but on the recipe are you put 190 calories
    why the difference????…………….love your recipes and getting quite a folder full…………..i am diabetic controlling by food so
    that means low carb………………….thanks for your website…………… it

    • Hello. Looks delicious, but maybe study what microwaves do to a person. Dangerous to even have it plugged in. Mine is in the garage so my husband can plug it in and have his occasional bad pop corn.

  9. I was looking for something *new* for breakfast and this came just at the right time. I had all the ingredients on hand so decided to give it a try (without the mint – mint is for toothpaste IMHO). Question, the recipe calls for 2 droppers full of Stevia. This seems like an awful lot of stevia. With my stevia dropper this would probably equate to 40-50 drops! So I wasn’t really sure if you meant 2 FULL droppers or 2 drops. I went with 2 drops when I made the recipe and it definitely could have used more sweetener. Can you clarify the amount of liquid stevia? I wonder if we could also use powdered Stevia or even Xylitol? Anyway, thanks for recipe. It’s a keeper! I definitely enjoyed it with a scoop of yogurt and my morning coffee!

    • Using the link directly to the stevia I used, it needed 2 droppers full to sweeten to my liking. The brand I used is linked. Depending on your liquid stevia which some are stronger than others it will be less, that’s why I linked to the one I use. You could use powdered pure extract, maybe 1/2 teaspoon or 2 packets if you have that.

  10. Hello! Thank you for having this recipe! I wanted to let you know that I used ground chia seed instead of flax and it turned out great. I am kinda new on the Stevia thing. I just got some peppermint stevia (sweet leaf brand just like the one you linked to. Size and everything) so I was excited to use it! However, I used only half a dropper full twice because I thought it was a lot. And it was a little strong for me. Am I not doing something right?


  1. […] recipe is an adaption of some of my other single serve muffins, Mint Chocolate Flax Muffin, Peanut Butter Flax Muffin and my Pumpkin Flax Muffin. Each are gluten free, dairy free and sugar […]
