How it Looks Inside the Muffin

Yummy and Healthy Banana Mug Muffin

If you’ve been reading my blog or following me on Facebook for any length of time, you probably know that I’m obsessed with single-serving microwaved mug muffins for breakfast. I eat one pretty much every day. The ones I make are soooooo healthy as they’re chock full of vitamins and micronutrients due to the use of coconut oil, ground flax seeds, and nut flours. But more than that, they just taste so damn good! Read the rest of this entry »

I am definitely enamored with the deliciousness and healthiness of paleo muffins than can be made in just a few minutes in the microwave. Ever since I learned about them, I’ve had them for breakfast almost every day! (I even made a savory one which I provided the recipe for here.) They’ve replaced my previous go-to breakfasts of oatmeal with fruit in it or sesame Ezekiel toast with avocado on it, as I have cut way down on grains.

  • Healthy Mug Muffin

    Healthy, Savory Muffin Made in a Mug!

    How to make the mug muffins I learned about last week into savory ones: I first sauteed some mushroom, onion, spinach, and uncured turkey bacon (which appeared to basically be ham).  Then added them into a coffee mug, along with some feta cheese to 2 tblsp. ground flax seed, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 egg (beaten), 1/4 tsp. salt. Then I microwaved on high for 2 minutes (I have an old microwave which needs more time than newer, more powerful ones). Waited a minute or so to cool and the whole thing dumps right out onto a plate. I found that sticking the whole thing in the toaster oven for a few minutes helps dry it out a bit when it’s done as well. Yummy, healthy breakfast that keeps me full for many hours!
