Muggin' It!

I am so loving muggin my muffins. Thanks to the lovely fit APRIL for introducing me to protein cakes in a mug. They Rock. Last night I fixed a chocolate chip flaxseed muffin with banana crumble. You can also use raisins or cherries if you're not in a chocolate mood. This was a tasty desert for MOI! James was out and I didn't have to share, haha!

Choco-Flax muffin (in a mug)


1 tsp. butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 C. ground flaxmeal
1/2 - 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 packet (or 2 tsp.) stevia
1 tbsp GF chocolate chips or other mix in (raisins, nuts, etc).

Spray a mug with coconut oil pan spray, add butter and microwave for a few seconds to melt it. Add the rest of the ingredients to the mug, stir and microwave for 45 seconds to one minute. Try 45 seconds first and if it isn't done, add a few seconds at a time until it is done.
When muffin is done, just turn it out onto a plate.

Makes 1 muffin (3 net carbs) and add a tbsp of yogurt or cottage cheese on top with chopped banana and agave nectar to make it even more tasty.

Well, we're off to Maudies tonight to meet up with both our folks. James' dad is in town from overseas. I'm pretty sure all the Cotter's will have a mexican food hangover tomorrow. That being said, CHEERS!!

that is such a fantastic idea!! I don't think I should remember it though, as I probably would make them too often! ;) Nothing like a warm muffin!!
