The Un-muffin

This flax-seed muffin recipe has been around for a while, but it is possible that some may not have heard of it.  Whether you are craving bready stuff but don’t want all the carbs or wanting the omega 3 benefits of flax, this is a quick treat,  guaranteed to make your mom-in-law love you . . . or not.

This is my version of it:

Instead of buying the ground flax seeds, which are already dead, sitting on the grocery shelf with all that other dead food (Depressed yet?), invest in a coffee grinder to use just for seeds.  It may have an identity crisis, but it does the trick.  Only grind up a couple of muffins worth for freshness sake, and keep in the fridge after grinding.

In a big mug, place 1 organic large egg, 1/4 cup of ground flax-seed, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. of the non-brain-frying baking powder (Think health food store.), 2 tsp. of EV organic olive oil, 1-2 tsp. agave syrup or honey.

Mix together and nuke for 1 minute in the microwave.  At some point, I may revert to campfires and adobe ovens, but for now that part of me is still in the 21st century.

Turn out in a small bowl or plate and serve with a dollop of jam–organic, of course.  Eat it right away because when it is cold it loses a lot of its appeal.

I just finished mine with fair trade organic coffee, and I feel so superior to all of you who just polished off your supper of Top Ramen!

    Thanks. It is new to me. And seems like it might just be easy enough for me to try it one of these days.

  3. What no picture… what does that say to us (me) who are visually oriented? It’s ugly?? Haha. I guess my flax seed is good and dead. It’s been sitting in the fridge since I bought it from a store who kept it in the fridge. Hmm…
    On a different subject, does expeller pressed oil really make any kind of difference? I have been buying expeller pressed, organic coconut oil, but found organic coconut oil that is not expeller pressed (Or it just didn’t mention it) from Trader Joe’s.

I would love to hear from you!
