I found this recipe on the Internet after hearing friends talking about fixing a high fiber, yet moist, soft, great tasting muffin for their kids to eat on the way to school. It's a GREAT "Finger Food" to start the day off right!

Step 1: Step 1 Recipe

1 Tablespoon Butter,  Margarine, or oil of your choice.*** IF unsalted butter or margarine is used add a pinch of salt
1 Egg or equivalent of Eggbeaters
1/4 C Flaxseed meal
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Cinnamon or other spices
Sweetner of your choice. I used about 1 Tablespoon of Splenda

Microwave safe container *** A 1 cup glass measuring cup works well
Measuring cups and spoons
I've been eating these for weeks now. The last few days I tried adding <br> <br>Banana: Tasted like banana bread! <br>Cocoa: Brownies! (It was a little dry on the inside that time) <br>Baked Sweet Potato (no Skin): Simply Awesome! <br> <br>It seems like adding something to make it a little gooey like a banana or sweet potato works best, But I imagine the possibilities are endless. My Wife just got a diagnosed with a gluten allergy so this has been a real life saver for fans of baked goods that can no longer eat flour. <br> <br>More experiments to come... After my cocoa experiment and adding &quot;gooey things&quot; I find myself wondering &quot;Is a flax doughnut possible?&quot;
OM gosh a flax doughnut......if you do it PLEASE let me know how it turns out! I love doughnuts, but my husband doesn't so doing one or two would be GREAT! <br> <br>I've experimented with flavors some, but haven't tried &quot;real&quot; things like bananas, or sweet potatoes. Tell me how much of each you added.....I'd love to give them a try. <br> <br>I make a savory one for DH leaving the cinnamon out but adding onion powder, or other savory seasonings. I also &quot;bake&quot; it in a larger bowl, so it comes out flatter. Once done he lets it cool a little then slices it in two horizontally and toasts it. He likes it with eggs, or for sandwiches. <br> <br>Do a google search for OMM, Flax One Minute Muffin, Muffin In A Minute to see what other people have done. <br> <br>Keep in touch I'd love to hear what all you come up with <br>Mary
I've been doing mine in a 5 cup glass measuring cup. It ends up like a small cake. I also use olive oil instead of butter though I sometimes add a pat of butter after cooking. I also don't measure so I think I've been going heavy on the flax which is probably a good thing when using bananas or sweet potatoes. I noticed that I get better results when everything is mixed well, so I put one attachment on the mixer instead of two and mix it up really well. I use that to sort of chop/ mix the banana or sweet potato until I get a nice creamy mixture. I wasn't able to find flax seed meal but rather milled flax seed at my local walmart. I don't know if its the same thing but I feel like something with a finer texture would do better. <br> <br>I added one medium banana or a small baked sweet potato with the skin peeled off. <br> <br>For my wife I've been using real sugar (she hates Splenda) and then before the top solidifies I sprinkle on this decorative blue sugar she likes. I've also considered a savory version.. I think Garlic and Rosemary would be nice. I added Garlic the other day and sliced it to use as a bread substitute with some homemade egg salad. <br> <br>By far my favorite so far was the sweet potato, its very moist and you almost have to eat it with a fork. <br>
I think the flax seed meal sounds like the same stuff I use. I'm going to try both of your ideas, they sound great. Especially the sweet potato will work well with our low carb way of eating. <br> <br>Let me know when you try the doughnuts....or any other additive for that matter <br>
Last night I did organic peanut butter and cocoa powder... it was like some kind of crazy Reese's cup bread. <br>
I'm trying the banana tomorrow AM
I hope you do....these are SO good and good for you. Keep the flaxseed meal in the fridge once opened.....in glass if possible
Oh, this is the best! :D <br /><br />I'm going to need to get some flaxseed meal so I can try this.
