On the go: An Awesome Low Carb Flaxseed Muffin Recipe
After eating eggs every day for weeks, and feeling the threat of inevitable mutiny from my family, I knew I needed to mix things up. My prerequisites for a school day breakfast are quick, easy and has substance (not just of a bowl of fortified sugar). Voilà! The following recipe met my needs and both my children have repeatedly requested these muffins for breakfast since first trying (a rare phenomenon in my house).
There is a lot of room for alterations with this muffin. So far, I have tried adding chocolate chips (kid approved) and fruit (Mike approved, although you may need to microwave a little longer if using frozen fruit). You can also change this from a sweet muffin to one with more substance by adding meats and cheeses instead of honey and cinnamon.
- 1/4 cup Mike’s Mix Ground Flaxseed
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp Mike’s Mix Pure Honey Powder
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Mix all ingredients in a coffee mug**
- Microwave on high for one minute
- Eat and enjoy!
You can substitute other sweeteners instead of using honey, or can remove all together.
I found that using a wide mouth mug (as pictured) worked the best. If you use a regular coffee mug, you may need to increase microwave time to 1:30 minutes.
