This is a very healthy breakfast muffin and has extra fiber and omegas. Takes less than 5 minutes from start to finish, is baked in the microwave for 1 minute, and you can eat it "on-the-go" instead of skipping breakfast when you are pressed for time. Flaxseed Muffin in a Mug
Flaxseed Muffin in a Mug



  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp.) finely ground flaxseeds
  • 1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar or Splenda Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. water
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil (or canola oil)
  • 1 egg


Combine all dry ingredients in a large coffee mug. Then stir in last 3 ingredients with a fork until well mixed.

Set in the microwave and set at high power for 1 minute.

Turn upside down onto a plate, and tap lightly. The muffin will fall out.

Remove the cup, and wash the cup out. If you leave it, it is more difficult to clean.

Servings: 1
Prep Time: about 2 minutes Minutes
Cooking Time: 1 minute Minutes

Source: I sort of incorporated ingredients from several recipes that I Googled up. So, although it is not my idea, it is my recipe.

The Muffins sound delicious up until you place it in the Microwave!
When people say nuke it they are not kidding because all the wholesome goodness in your muffin is nuke out!
Microwaves ruin every good nutritious thing that was in your muffin to the point of "All you are getting is fiber and it is nutrition-less. Sad but true....the day I heard this the microwave went to the curb with a free sign on it!
Never trusted those contraptions!
I really only used it to heat water for tea.
They are not saving you anything but making you think you are if what you eat when the come out is basically cardboard nutritionally.


Do the research and ask yourself and educate yourself. It is all there in black and white.
God bless have a great big healthy day!
