A healthy gluten free, grain free, no refined sugar mug muffin in under 5 minutes.

  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 - 2 tsp. honey or real maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • Optional: 1/2 banana, mashed (or 1/3 cup pumpkin puree)
  • Optional: dark chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts, etc.
  1. Combine all the dry ingredients in the mug and stir together.
  2. Beat the egg in a separate bowl or just add it to the mug with everything else (just be sure that's it's well incorporated so you don't get scrambled egg in your muffin).
  3. Combine remaining ingredients and any mashed or pureed fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips you like.
  4. When everything is mixed well, place in the microwave and cook for 1 and half to 2 minutes.
  5. Use a butter knife to to run around the edge of the muffin before turning the mug upside down on a plate.
  6. Slice and enjoy!

We like ours with a little almond butter and jelly as a sandwich for lunch or with a little extra syrup like a pancake for breakfast.
