Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    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

Directions

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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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!

    I add flax to almost all my baking items now. Also use whole wheat and soy flour. This really adds the protien to a recipie and they taste GREAT. Thanks for sharing this one. I especially love blueberries. - 4/9/10

    Delicious and super moist!! 90 seconds was perfect. Also tried using ground chia, flax & cocoa blend purchased at Whole Foods, and replacing nutmeg with cinnamon. Even better! Will be making again and again with variations! - 5/3/13

    I wanted to rate the recipe as 4, but fat finger effect resulted in lower rating. Sorry about that. My modifications: one full egg, 1 tbs of lemon juice, 1 ts of sugar. 90 sec is the perfect time, then 2 min standing time. I can't believe how great it turned out without a trace of flour. Thanks :) - 9/30/14

    I'm a very picky eater, so this 'healthy' tasting muffin is delicious! I adjusted the recipe using other suggestions in the comments. A whole egg, no orange zest, honey instead of SFPS, cinnamon instead of nutmeg. I also added 1-2 drops of vanilla extract, and sprinkled powdered sugar on the muffin! - 8/13/14

    I thought this was fairly terrible. I followed the directions exactly. It's like a strange quiche, not remotely muffin-like. The texture and appearance is very unappealing. It doesn't taste like anything really, there's just a vague hint of sweetness. Not recommended. - 9/1/14

    Very tasty, easy recipe. I used a regular mug and should have used extra large but it still worked. I also substituted Agave for the syrup and used liquid egg white. I had to adjust my cooking time because of that. I think I used more than I should have. - 7/29/14

    Great muffins and very filling. I make these frequently for quick breakfast. Only thing I changed is 1/4 tsp. each of cinnamon and nutmeg since the nutmeg can be overpowering. Also add a couple red raspberries and blackberries and microwave for 2 minutes. - 8/7/15

    I tried this recipe for breakfast. I have to say I'm not really a fan. Maybe I will try some of the ideas listed to make it a bit better tasting. - 8/4/14
