Minute muffins

I've been making myself high-fiber muffins since re-starting the low-carb diet. They're actually quite yummy -- Vic (not dieting) will request a gingerbread one for himself, and that's saying something. There are flavors that I have yet to try: Garlic Dill, Lemon Poppyseed, and Pumpkin. And they are so FAST, cooking in 1:11 -- 1 minute! -- in the microwave.

Below is a cinnamon muffin with 1/2 an ounce of blueberries inside, topped with whipped cream cheese. The green soup mug is what it was cooked in. Recipes follow.

1/4 c milled flax (flax meal)
1/4 to 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbs Hershey's special dark cocoa
sweetener to taste (I use Splenda)
1 tbs chopped walnut
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
Mix dry ingredients, then add wet (use a whisk). Scrape the sides.
Nuke for 1 min (1-1-1) in a soup or coffee mug. Put butter on it after baking.

1/4 c flax meal
1/4 to 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 packet Splenda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 lg egg
1 tsp butter
Put dry ingredients in a soup or coffee mug & stir. Add egg and butter; mix.
Microwave 1 min (1-1-1). Slice & eat with butter, or toast before eating.
