Default Muffin in a Minute

Serving Size = 1

1/4 cup flax meal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 packet Splenda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 large egg - beaten
1 tsp Margarine - Trans Fat Free - melted

Put dry ingredients into a small bowl or coffee cup

Stir

Add egg and margarine and mix well.

Microwave 1 minute.

Take out.. pop out onto a plate and enjoy!!

Great with Sugar Free Syrup or Fat Free Cream Cheese.

Takes a minute to make and cures the sweet cravings...

You will be amazed how filling this is, I actually have to split one with my husband..

I can never find this and I just realized it's because I look for it in Phase 1 breakfasts. I know flax meal is P1 safe so why is the recipe here instead?

it looks like the serving size for P1 is 3T, so 3/4 of a 1/4 cup Thanks for the answer!

Is flax meal and flax flour the same thing? Or is the flour ground more? If so, anyone ever try it with flax flour? That is all I can seem to find.

I am SHOCKED at how good this is! But I do really like the flavor of flax, so maybe that's part of it. Wow, I am so pleasantly surprised.

I did it per the recipe, except using Egg Beaters instead of a whole egg, so the fat is lower. This ends up being less than 200 calories, with 12g protein and 8 g fiber - those are better numbers than most of the nutrition bars out there, and very filling. Here are the stats, without adding cream cheese or syrup or anything:

Just wanted to add that I made it again today, adding 1/4 cup mixed berries. It was so delicious!!

I did have to cook it longer (probably 2.5 minutes total, as the berries were frozen). Also, just blueberries might have worked better - the strawberries and raspberries and blackberries were a little mushy in the muffin. Still delicious though.

I think the first recipe included cream cheese? I don't add that in mine... and the sodium on that one is 853 mg? That's a lot more than I came up with for 1/2 tsp baking powder.

The calories I posted above were with using Egg Beaters, which honestly I don't often use. And I might have had Smart Balance *Light* for the more low-cal version, I can't remember... The calorie count on this using a regular large egg and regular Smart Balance, according to sparkpeople is 222 calories (I add 35 extra for 1/2 cup berries.)

I just made a savory Phase 1 version of this with 3T flax, green chili powder, some green salsa in the middle and a little rf cheddar on top. I ate it with more green salsa poured over it. Yum. 241 calories according to FitDay

I discovered the spinach last week and am now hooked! I mix some thawed chopped spinach, top with melty cheese and serve with extra salsa. It's so good and soooo filling!

Tonight I made the basic recipe with a T of green chilis added. Cooked it in a slightly wider bowl then sliced it in half and used as a burger bun (homemade black bean burgers). It was surprisingly solid, worked great. Next time we are going for the whole thing - burger, tomato, cheese. These can handle it.
