Flax Meal Muffin In A Cup In 5 Minutes

I can tell you, most of you will not like this cake, but if you eat gluten free, or have candida.... this cake is not so bad.


As I was eating my lunch of Flax Bread, spinach, tomato and egg whites.
I got to thinking, I could really go for a good, quick dessert for my afternoon snack.


I have had this Flax Meal Muffin recipe saved for months to try. I think today is a great day to try it.

I frosted mine with almond butter and sprinked some stevia over it.

This tasted very good, although it was just a tad on the dry side. I will only make 1/2 a batch next time because this was way to much for me to eat in one sitting. I also need to look for a frosting recipe that I can use. Once I can eat fruits again, this would be great with apples in it.

Flax Meal Muffin In A Cup In 5 Minutes

1/2 Cup Flax Meal
1 Large Egg (I use egg whites)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 Packets Stevia
1/2 Tablespoon Oil
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 Dash Salt

Mix dry ingredients well.
Stir in melted butter and beaten egg.
Pour ingredients into a coffee mug. (I mixed mine in the mug)
Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
Eat as it is or put your favorite topping on it.

  1. Will this work using the oven instead? I don't use microwaves.

  2. Sean,
    It would probably be like making a cupcake. I haven't tried it in an oven but I can't see why not. I would turn the oven to 350 degrees.

    I am thinking about not using a microwave any longer also. They are so bad for us.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope to see more of you. Terry

  3. I actually found another recipe that uses the oven. I've been experimenting the last couple days.

    6 eggs

    1 Stick - Butter

    6 Tbs - Stevia (or 10 Tbs of Xylitol) You'll have to experiment with these depending on how sweet you want it.

    1 Tbs - Vanilla

    1 Tbs - Baking powder

    3-4 Tbs - Cinnamon

    1 cup - Ground flax seed meal

    Put everything in a blender and then pour the contents into a muffin tray. Makes 12. You could also use almonds. Just make sure they're raw and soak them in water over night to get rid of the mold.

    I prefer the Xylitol version. I like both though. When they're done, you can butter the tops and sprinkle some stevia or Xylitol on top. Stuff is good. Smells like french toast when it's baking.

    Thanks for responding Terry.

  4. Sean,
    Mmmmm ... this sounds really good. I am going to try it. I can now use real butter, I bet it makes it taste so much better than oil.

    When I make flax cake, it is so moist that I keep it in the fridg so it doesn't mold on me.

    Thanks so much Sean.

    350° for 20-25 min.

    And no problem! Take care.

  6. Hi! I stumbled upon this blog today because of a Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays post. I love grain-free, anti-candida recipes! Do you post recipes often, Terry? I'm glad that some oven instructions have been posted, too. We don't use our microwave at all anymore...too many reasons not to.

  8. I keep seeing these muffin a cup recipes and never get around to trying one. On my Keto diet I can have flax meal and almond meal so this is totally doable for me. I'll have to play with this! Thanks for reminding me of these Terry!

  9. Oh I may try this right now. I'm Hungry and have everything I need to make this, it can be a roast beef sammie :) I'm going to pin this too

  10. I love oatmeal and will often eat it right out of the bowl! Thanks for sharing this recipe. Now I have another breakfast idea.

  11. This sounds like something that would be worth trying for sure. Thanks for sharing this bit of a tip with us.

  12. Maybe you can make mini muffins and then it wouldn't be too much. I like to freeze them and then pop each one in the microwave. I've got to get on the flax train. It's so good for you!

  13. I am one of the few who likes the taste of flax and I really like that this is for individual portions! I just may try this one. I would more then likely top with whipped cream-lately that has been my go to topping-----

  14. It does not sound bad at all! I will have to share this with some of my friends that do a lot with flax meal. Thanks!

  15. That's pretty easy and healthy, too! Oh, and a Flax Bread, spinach, tomato and egg whites sandwich - that sounds like a lunch that totally rocks! Yum!

  16. Sounds like a quick and easy recipe. 5 minutes is usually all the time i have to do anything. :)

  18. Thanks for the healthy snack idea! I am great at planning meals but really drop the ball on snacks.

  19. I have never tried cooking with Flax seed before but this looks like a really easy recipe for me to start with

  20. Like Karen, I have never used flax seed, but have seen a lot of recipes that include it. I love your honesty about maybe not liking the recipe. I do think it sounds like it would be good with fruit. Apples and maybe a hit of raisins too.

  21. Oh i can see this tasting really good with diced apples in it! hmmmm. Like an apple cinnamon dessert in a cup.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like easy, and this seems easy (to make and clean up!). I bet you're right too about the apples, or maybe even some peaches, yum!

  23. That sounds so easy, I can not wait to try it. I love the sandwich too! I need to get back to healthier eating.

  24. I've never tried making anything in a cup I really want to give it a go though as it sounds so quick and easy, love a nice muffin as well :) x

  25. I haven't used a lot of flax in my baking but if this is gluten free I need to try it with my daughter.

  26. This looks healthy and fairly easy. Flax seed is so good for you too. Adding some fruit would make it almost perfect.

  27. I will have to try these, I have flax in my pantry right now but will also try the oven. If I could have dairy right now I would make some honey cream cheese frosting to spread on the top.

  28. I never tried anything like that before and now I am curious. Your sandwich looks delicious. The muffin looks really yummy too. I will give it a try and come back to let you know how it goes.

  29. I have bookmarked this page... Thank you so much for sharing. I am recently on a new Gluten Free Lifestyle and I am struggling to say the least! I eat the same ole stuff every day and need some new options! Thanks!

  30. Very interesting. I definitely do not think I would enjoy this very much. I'm lucky that I don't have to go gluten free or have candida! I give you so much credit!
