#3 of 3 Recipes for Coffee Mug Cakes (or Muffins)

Regarding the treat in a mug … I know it’s not chocolate (is that forgivable?) but here is a healthy version that I’ve made … good to add raisins or some walnuts … I’m amazed at the versatility of ground flax seed … I used it instead of an egg in some meatballs the other night and they were great! (You can get it at Costco) and you can get Stevia packets and coconut oil at Traders … got this from Dr. Oz.
Okay, I guess you could through some chocolate pieces in it too …
Jorge’s Skinny Muffin
Traditional energy bars are often packed with sugar, which can cause a spike and a subsequent crash. These muffins are designed to provide sustainable energy that lasts through lunch, thanks to coconut oil, a healthy fat that’s good for your brain, fiber-rich flaxseed and egg protein.
Makes one serving
 1/4 cup ground flax
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp coconut oil
1 egg
1 packet stevia
Mix all ingredients together in a mug and microwave for 50 seconds. Allow to cool to a safe temperature and enjoy!
