Good morning all. To quote a blogger friend of mine ( Kay!!!), I am being a slug today. I hate when that happens. I am a jump out of bed, coffee, workout, walk the dogs, do some chores, do some work type of girl. The slug in me, hangs out in bed and reads messages, emails, and tweets on her iphone ( just got one, and I'm in love!), then leisurely gets up, makes the bed, a cup of coffee and gets back on the computer. I might stop and feed the dogs, and maybe even myself. But the gist of being a slug, is that you move real slow, have no particular goals and accomplish really nothing!! I'm going to embrace the slug in me today and just go with it. We are all entitled to a slugfest once in awhile!
All of you creative bloggers that are making and tweaking low sugar, low carb recipes are going to laugh at this one. I just got around this morning to making the flaxseed muffin. I know, you have been making it and talking about for many months. I don't regularly watch Dr. Oz, but after reading Rosalie's post, I went online to watch Jorge make the muffin. I made it from the recipe he gave, so maybe some of you out there have different versions. I have to say I'm in love with this muffin. How could so much time have gone by without me making it? What other delicious things have I been missing just because I haven't taken the time to make them? All of you have been making and enjoying it for so long, and I'm just getting around to it!!
Unlike Jorge who doesn't bother to give the credit where it is due, and passed this off as his little creation, I know that you fellow blogger gals have been the ones to discover, tweak, and blog about this little flaxseed wonder. So I am giving you credit, and thanks. Now I need you tell me again in the comment section, all the little things you do to it to make it special It would take me forever to look back on all the blogs and find all the little variations you have come up with. I made some changes too, and I added some vanilla and cooked it less time. The first one was alittle dry with cooking it for 50 seconds, so I went down to 45. I think my microwave is alittle more powerful so I adjusted the time.
So without further adieu....I present to all of those who may be reading this blog, and don't know about this.....THE MICROWAVE FLAXSEED MUFFIN!!! ( and I take no credit for this at all...I'm merely a copycat!)
|Here's what you need!|
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 packet of Truvia
1/4 cp of ground flaxseed
1 tsp vanilla extract ( not in original recipe, I added this)
Stir all ingredients in a mug that has been sprayed with cooking spray
Microwave for 45- 55 seconds
|Mix it all together|
|This is what it looks like after microwaving. It pops right out of the cup!|
|This is the brand I used.|
|I found this at Homegoods!|
Eat and enjoy. I tried it cut in half with cream cheese and natures hollow sugar free mountainberry jam
