I have another guest post for you guys today. I also met Michelle at BLEND and she was so AWESOME! Here she is. Enjoy.
Hello fitcupcaker fans! My name is Michelle and I blog at Eat Move Balance. When Sara asked me to guest post, I jumped at the chance. I knew it would motivate me to tweak and improve a recipe I had been meaning to revisit.
I enjoy cooking with whole, delicious foods, while keeping recipes relatively simple. A while back, I had posted a Single Serving Flaxseed Muffin recipe. It was good, healthy and easy to make, but it was one of those things that I knew could be just a bit better!
I wanted to keep this recipe as a “single serving” and maintain the ease of preparation and cooking. The muffin just needed a bit more flavor and something to jazz up the texture. So after a bit of experimentation, I found a winner!
Single Serving Banana Flaxseed Muffin
- 1 egg
- ¼ c. ground flaxseed
- 1 t. baking powder
- 2 t. cinnamon
- ½ small banana, sliced/chopped
- 2 t. cinnamon
- If desired, a touch of sweetener such as stevia, honey or agave nectar
Directions: Whisk all ingredients together, except the banana, in a large mug. Stir banana slices into the mixture. Microwave (on high) for 2 minutes. Enjoy!
The banana adds a gooey texture that takes the muffin from rather plain to very tasty! Depending upon how ripe the banana is, it can also lend a touch of natural sweetness.
