Flax Muffin in a Mug

Submitted by: NEWDEBBIE
Flax Muffin in a Mug

Introduction

Great healthy, filling muffin for breakfast or a snack. Great healthy, filling muffin for breakfast or a snack.
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 tsp. butter
    1 egg, slightly beaten
    1/4 C. ground flaxmeal
    1/2 - 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1 packet (or 2 tsp.) Splenda

Directions

Spray a mug with vegetable pan spray, add butter and microwave for a few seconds to melt it. Add the rest of the ingredients to the mug, stir and micowave for one minute. Be careful, if you have a 1100W microwave one minute is too long. Try 45 seconds and if it isn't done, add a few seconds at a time until it is done. Every microwave is different, so you may have to "play" with the recipe.

When muffin is done, just turn it out onto a plate.

Makes 1 muffin (3 net carbs)

Sometimes I add chopped walnuts or pecans to the muffin, but I didn't add that nutritional info to this recipe.

    I use 2 T.flaxmeal, 2 T.almond meal, liquid vanilla splenda (holds up to the heat better than Truvia), orange zest, and frozen raspberries. I slice it and add a little full-fat cream cheese to each slice. To keep it from sticking, melt the butter first, then roll it around the inside of the cup. - 3/3/12

    Oh my goodness. I have been using this recipe for about a year now. It is my number one, go to recipe. MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE BREAKFAST. I mixed up the dry ingredients and added a little protein powder to make an even 4 tbsp. I Keep a container with all the dry combined, so its an even to make! - 5/14/12

    I tried this recipe this morning. It was excellent. I added the walnuts. I was thinking of adding some dried blueberries. I had it as a snack after my treadmill workout. This recipe is a keeper ! - 2/23/10

    These muffins are easy, filling and healthy! I add golden raisins and microwave for 65 seconds. The key for me is that the fact that there is a whole egg in the muffin, good fat and Flax Meal allows me to use the muffin as my complete breakfast and I don't get hungry until time for lunch. - 9/13/11

    WOW!! So EASY and so GOOD! I think I FINALLY found a breakfast food for this gastric bypass patient! It provided the "carby" texture I seem to always crave without putting me into a carb-coma AND provided 12 g of protein to start my day. This is a WINNER! - 6/18/13

    This is great. I then made one with 1/8 cup flax & 1/8 cup shelled hemp seed and 1 egg white (no yolk) which was also good though a little less moist. Egg white only is good if you want to eat one every day! - 7/15/12

    Love this recipe - I ususally use oil instead of butter, and vanilla stevia instead of splenda. I have also tried it with berries and cocoa powder added - always awesome and so easy too! - 9/21/11

    This recipe was yummy for a quick but healthy snack or morning muffin. I added frozen blueberries and nuts so increased my time in the microwave to 1 1/2 minutes. What a great idea for a single serving!! - 12/24/10

    Love it! I added some ricotta cheese and it took me 50 seconds. I didn't have any grounded flaxmeal, so I made my own in the blender. Just put the flax seeds in the blender and blended them until they were powder. Thanks for sharing this recipe. - 8/29/13

    Delicious!! I added just a few dried cranberries and about 2 walnuts halves broken up. Cooked it for 45 seconds--turned out great!! (Will be even better when I don't forget the sweetener--LOL) - 4/2/13

    Awesome! I used coconut oil in place of butter and spray and some turbinado sugar in place of Splenda. I melted the oil in a 2 cup measuring cup and swirled it around. No sticking. I mixed ingreds. first then put into cup. 1 minute was perfect for my 1000 watt microwave. Thanks for this recipe! - 7/17/12

    I made the muffin as shown, although I used Truvia, and it was delicious! I can't wait to try it with nuts, fruit, and other variations. On a low carb diet, I miss breads, but this is a perfect solution to that craving. It's so quick and easy it will be a definite addition to my mornings! - 2/8/12

    Using roasted flax seed is good,it needs to be roasted or at least ground. You could use canola oil or coconut oil. - 4/14/10

    Very good. The muffin had a sponge-y rather than a cake-y texture, but that was not a problem. My non-diabetic husband lked it as well. I have made this several times alsready. - 3/13/10

    This is a great recipe that is a classic from the low carber forums. For the person who wanted to make this without dairy (butter) try it with coconut oil instead. I use 2 tsp. but anywhere from zero to 1 tablespoon is good. Carb count is lower and muffin is moister if liquid sweetener is used. - 3/4/10

  • Very tasty! Original recipe was too "flax-y" for me, used 1/2 flax meal and 1/2 almond flour - much better! Added nuts and dried blueberries, yum! I will be making this regularly. - 7/15/14
