My kids love the idea of having a muffin in one minute, we have done them before, chocolate cake or brownies in a mug, not so healthy but alot of fun for the kids. I love the idea of whipping up breakfast in a flash thats full of all the good stuff, protein, fibre, omega 3 fatty acids, healthy fats, low sugar, or atleast no refined sugars. Well if you are after a breakfast on the go, literally a couple of minutes prep and 60 seconds in the microwave then this is perfect. Whats even better is that you can have what ever flavour you wish, sweet or savoury!! This is also suited to many with food alergies like gluten, lactose free and low fodmap and perfect for those clean eating as its low carbs! Its main ingrediet is flaxmeal!!
I like to call these one breakfast muffins as really its packed full of goodness to start your day and give you energy for the morning but ofcourse you can enjoy these any time! For extra health benifits add a teaspoon of chia seeds!
