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!

    I made this earlier today. took a little more time to cook in my microwave. I calculated that the amount of blueberries to be 1/4th cup. The muffin was very yummy and the flax gives it a nutty taste. I didn't miss the flour at all - 5/1/13

    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

    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.
