Number of Servings: 1


    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


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.

    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 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

    very surprised at how good this was. used 1 T sugar in place of sweetener and coconut oil in place of butter. Will try butter next. Ate w/o any extras spread on it or added to recipe. :) Very filling! - 7/6/12

    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

    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
