My pilates teacher and friend shared this recipe with me about a year ago. I’m not sure of the origin…but thank you! It is so simple, filling and healthy, I could not resist sharing it here.
Into a medium size coffee mug stir
- 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp of honey, agave syrup or maple syrup
Stir the entire mixture with a fork until completely blended, making sure to scrap the sides and bottom. Microwave on high for one minute.
Variations and additions:
As always, I deviate from the recipe by adding or substituting some of the ingredients listed below:
- 1 tbsp hemp hearts
- 1 chopped fresh fig or date
- walnut oil
- 2 tbsp chopped nuts
- 1 tbsp coconut flakes
Are you WOWED?
I certainly was the first time I gently tapped my muffin out of my mug. As you can see, I like to add a tiny bit of butter….or jam, or almond butter or cheese.
Let us know what you think of breakfast (or lunch) in a mug. ENJOY!!
Lisa “I’ve tried this quick and simple muffin recipe and as Maureen says it’s so very filling. I added a little more cinnamon and some cocoa powder. When it was hot from the microwave, I spread some coconut oil on it …yummy!”
