  1. 1-minute applesauce and flax muffin

My new favorite breakfast is a dairy free, grain free, high fiber muffin that takes less than one minute to make! This tasty breakfast option keeps me full all the way to lunch.


  • ¼ cup ground flax meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon raw cane sugar or coconut sugar or 1 packet of Stevia


Place the ingredients into a mug, stir and put it in the microwave for 50 seconds.

Allow to cool, flip mug over onto a plate and cut in half.

Butter with 1 tsp of apple butter and enjoy!

Time-saver trick:  mix dry ingredients the night before and in morning simply add applesauce and egg, stir, microwave and enjoy!
