One-Minute Flax Muffin (edited to correct the recipe!)

Thanks to Jaymie for letting me know to add the baking powder to the recipe below. That might help explain why no one asks ME to bring anything to family gatherings. Hmmmm....

This is a recipe highly recommended by my sister-in-law, Jaymie. I just got the recipe last night and can't wait to try it, but since I need to procure some of the ingredients first, I'm passing it on now!

One-Minute Flax Muffin

1/4 cup flax meal (4 T)*
1/2 tsp baking powder
Fiberfit sweetener (or 1 packet Splenda)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg
1-2 tsp butter

*NOTE: Jaymie uses 1/8 cup flax and 1/8 cup chia meal (and, no, she's not sprouting anything)

1. Mix the dry ingredients in a large coffee cup.
2. Add egg and butter; mix well.
3. Microwave for 1 minute.
4. Muffin pops right out!

Slice in half and butter or use cream cheese frosting.

NOTE: I plan to substitute stevia (we use Sweet Leaf Stevia Plus) for Splenda since we have it but will also look into the Fiberfit sweetener.

NOTE #2, for those who might not read the comments: Jaymie gets chia seeds and meal at She mentioned it because I was unable to find chia meal today at a local store that carries an impressive assortment of natural and uncommon foods.



  1. I do not know the source of the original recipe, but I found multiple posts about it on low carb friends blog. Just wanted to let folks know that it is not original to me. It also needs 1/2 tsp. baking powder.


  2. Thanks for straightening me out :)

    Just another reminder that I'm in line for a keeper....
