calculator Calculating Net Atkins Count™


  • 1/4 cup Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour (1/4 cup is 28g)
  • 1 tsp No Calorie Sweetener
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 1 dash Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1 tsp Canola Vegetable Oil


  1. Place all dry ingredients in a coffee mug. Stir to combine.
  2. Add the egg and oil. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  3. Microwave for 1 minute. Use a knife if necessary to help remove the muffin from the cup, slice, butter, eat.

Note: Your MIM can be toasted once it's cooked and topped with cream cheese if you like. Replace the cinnamon with other spices, sugar-free syrup or 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa (net carb count will be .2g higher). Add a tablespoon of sour cream for a moister MIM. Change the shape by making it in a bowl.

Cooking Tip

Stirring the dry ingredients is a very important step to make sure your MIM bakes evenly.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
