Blueberry Flax Microwave MuffinSubmitted by: REBECCAFRIEDMAN
IntroductionMade in a coffee cup or shallow bowl, these babies are delicious, nutritious, and so fast you will be amazed. Enjoy! Made in a coffee cup or shallow bowl, these babies are delicious, nutritious, and so fast you will be amazed. Enjoy!
Number of Servings: 1
1 ounce frozen blueberries
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp sugar-free pancake syrup
1/2 tsp orange zest
1 egg white
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Mix dry ingredients together thoroughly (I use a large measuring cup and just add other ingredients to the flax once I have measured it) and then add egg, syrup & zest. Pour into oversized coffee cup that you have sprayed (I use organic coconut oil spray) and put in microwave for 90 seconds. This will make a tall muffin. If you prefer a flatter muffin (more like a muffin top) use a small, shallow cereal bowl. Top with a little more sugar free pancake syrup if desired, and butter if you can spare the calories. For a really decadent version put a tablespoon of melted butter into the batter before cooking. Please comment if you make this recipe! Enjoy.

I just tried this recipe. Mine did not look like the photo above. Mine looks much darker, so it's not as pretty, but it's actually a tasty muffin. The only change I made in the recipe was to use honey instead of pancake syrup. Thanks for sharing this! - 5/1/13

Spark added a stock image of a blueberry muffin, not my picture, and definitely misleading! No way a microwave muffin made with whole grain flax is going to look like that. Glad you enjoyed!
This was really good and filling! I used raspberries, lemon zest and cinnamon and they were good also. Thanks for posting this! - 3/22/10

Glad you enjoyed, Cindy! I keep making variations on this recipe and I will post some more when I get a chance - it's pretty flexible.
Can't wait to try this! Questions: (I'm not much of a cook). Do I need to thaw the berries first? Also, I only have un-ground flax seed, will that work? I guess I could try & crush them up with my mortar & pestle! - 7/8/13

Hi and glad you are interested in my recipes! Becoming a good cook is not that hard, and you are doing it the right way by trying new recipes and asking questions. :-) No need to thaw berries first, and you can use fresh! Yes, grind flax. I use a coffee bean grinder.
This recipe is a winner. It's the first one I've tried using flax seed. I purchased a 3 lb. bag of Golden Omega Flaxseed from Costco. Since I haven't seen it there before assume it's a new product. The muffins are very good and also very filling. I've used apple for the fruit with cinnamon. Thanks! - 9/2/13
I'm as happy as a clam in chowder! Able to eat something like bread again. Great with Strawberries too. - 4/7/13

so glad you enjoyed! the variations are are infinite as your imagination.
This is a great recipe! I added the tablespoon of melted butter to mine. I melted the butter in the baking cup and swirled it around to grease the cup, then put the remaining butter in the batter. I didn't have any S/F maple syrup, so I used DaVinci's S/F vanilla syrup. It needed 2 min. to cook. - 5/25/13

sure, any SF syrup would work!
Totally awesome! I used 2 tbsps flax seed and then ground it up in my magic bullet. I used Torani Sugar Free Vanilla & Hazelnut syrup (mixed together to make 1 tbsp), pumpkin pie spice, fresh blueberries, and grapefruit zest. It's a little eggy in consistency for me, but the flavor is amazing! - 7/11/13
