Blueberry Flax Microwave Muffin

Blueberry Flax Microwave Muffin
Made in a coffee cup or shallow bowl, these babies are delicious, nutritious, and so fast you will be amazed. Enjoy!
Number of Servings: 1


1 ounce frozen blueberries
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp sugar-free pancake syrup
1/2 tsp orange zest
1 egg white
1/2 tsp nutmegMix dry ingredients together thoroughly (I use a large measuring cup and just add other ingredients to the flax once I have measured it) and then add egg, syrup & zest. Pour into oversized coffee cup that you have sprayed (I use organic coconut oil spray) and put in microwave for 90 seconds. This will make a tall muffin. If you prefer a flatter muffin (more like a muffin top) use a small, shallow cereal bowl. Top with a little more sugar free pancake syrup if desired, and butter if you can spare the calories. For a really decadent version put a tablespoon of melted butter into the batter before cooking. Please comment if you make this recipe! Enjoy.

2-Minute French Toast in A Cup

2-Minute French Toast in a Cup Recipe
First you need bread. This is pan de mie, which is basically just french for sandwich bread. Your weber white will work fine, or whatever you have on hand. I prefer my french toast soft-ish but if you like a little crunch go for a baguette. It truly does not matter. An old croissant. A nutty multigrain. A pile of tortillas might even work, i’m not kidding. Anyway, you’ll need one or two pieces of bread per cup. I like to make 2 cups at once so I can split an egg, but you can totally make one big cup with more bread and a whole egg. Work with what you’ve got.

Cube your bread.

Get your cup or cups ready. Butter the inside, either rub a pat of butter around, or you can melt the buter in a mircowave and slosh it around. Up to you.

Place the bread in the cup of your choosing. I used two small cups this time because my pesky husband wanted in on the action, but one big cup totally works. About a slice or a slice and a half will do it. Smoosh it down a bit but don’t compact it so much cause you need the liquid to be able to work it’s way in.

Now in a separate cup or ramekin do the following:
-crack and egg into it
-add 3 tablespoons of milk
-sprinkle cinnamon
-if you like your french toast really sweet or vanilla-y, add a single drop of vanilla extract (I don’t do this, but it might make you love it even more)

Mix it all together with a fork.

Pour the mixture into your cup/cups. Smoosh it a little, and give it a minute to soak down into the bread.

Now stick your cup in the microwave. Start with one minute, then add ten seconds at a time until it’s cooked to your liking (no runny eggs). In my microwave that’s 1 minute, 20 seconds.

Mmm, eggy cinammon-y bread. Yes!

Add syrup. You have to have syrup. Or whip cream. But really, syrup.

Eat. Repeat nightly, or morning-ly.

Stir in the chocolate chips. Put in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or until desired doneness is reached (all microwaves are different so you might have to experiment a little. I only do it for about 1 minute). Top with peanut butter pie mousse and hot fudge.
