1 Minute Microwave Flax Muffin    

Miss that morning muffin?  

Here is a recipe that has been circulating about the Internet and was featured on the Dr. Oz show.
It's super easy, not to mention delicious and nutritious. 
This one is a winner!

1 TBSP Coconut Oil (Melted)
1/4 Cup Ground Flax Seed (also called Flax Meal)
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Egg
1 TBSP of your choice (Agave Nectar, Honey or Maple Syrup)
(Sweetener can be exchanged with 2 packets of Stevia)

*optional - add chopped nuts, fruit, etc... 

You are only limited by your imagination. I saw a jalapeno cheddar version on line!
My favorite version so far uses chopped almonds with a 1/4 cup fresh blueberries.

The Procedure:

-Melt coconut oil in 2 cup capacity microwave safe mug. 
-Add all of the other ingredients listed into the mug of melted coconut oil and mix.
-Next add any optional nuts, fruit that you wish.
-Microwave for 1 minute on high. (May need an extra 15 to 30 seconds if you have added fruit.)
-Let sit for a minute then turn it out onto a plate. You may need to run a knife around it first, but usually is will just pop out with a tap of two. 

Top with butter or whatever you like while it is still hot and enjoy!
