Mug Muffin

'Muffin in a mug' sounds really fun and cool. This muffin will be ready to eat in just 2 mins (including the prep time). I found this recipe from the Dr Oz's show, under the session "jumpstart your day'. I tried this today morning and it tasted really good. It rises up like a soufflé and sinks down a bit, once taken out of the oven. The texture was very soft and light. I ate the whole muffin and the protein and fiber kept me full and satisfied for more than 3 hrs now. The original recipe calls for 1 packet of stevia and 2tsp Cinnamon powder, but i replaced stevia with sugar as i did not have it handy. And the actual sugar substitution is, 1 packet stevia=2tsp of Sugar. This will be a perfect healthy on-the-go breakfast. 


1/4 cup Flax meal (Ground Flaxseed)
1 Egg
1tsp Cinnamon powder
1tsp Baking powder
1 1/2tsp Sugar
1tsp Coconut oil (Organic Extra Virgin)
 How to:
  • Pour the coconut oil into the mug, followed by the flax meal, cinnamon powder, baking powder and sugar. Mix well.
  • Now break the egg, add it to the mixture and beat with a fork.
  • Microwave for 55 seconds. 
  • With a knife gently loosen the edges and transfer it to a plate.
  • Serve warm as breakfast to jumpstart your day.

    1. This tasted awful, what a waste of my flax seed, I will find another way to get protein in the morning.

    2. I am sorry it didn't work for you.

  2. Love the recipe, thanks for the step by step pics. It def made a difference to add the egg in last :) I am a nursing student, and I have to be out of the house 5:45am, 3x a week, and be ready to work by 6:45am! This is a GREAT treat for the morning, packed w/ energy to last me thru the day (well...at least until 12noon).
