I made this muffin again this morning, only I added 1 Tablespoon of GF oats and a T. of dried cranberries. Have also been expirementing with adding nutmeg instead of cinnamon. I think I might be overcooking the muffins though, because the one this morning was a bit dry. I am considering adding a tiny amount of soymilk or almond milk.

I think it is more of a sensitivity although not an outright allergy. If I have it only once in a blue moon, then I'm ok so I don't use it at home.
The same with corriander and cilantro although lately I've been able to toerate cilantro.

GFNomad, you said that sometimes you react to cinnamon. Is that like a gluten reaction or something else? I've noticed that sometimes I get heartburn with various amounts of cinnamon.

Bethany, I just tried the muffin and it was delicious. I only ate half of it as there was alot of flax-seed as you did mention that. I am going to see if I can try different things in like Gfnomad did.
Thanks again

Thanks for this recipe Bethany!!! I tried it last night with a few modifications. I added a tbsp brown rice protein pwdr and substituted a 1/2 tsp xylitol for the splenda and added a tsp of peach jam and a drop of vanilla since sometimes I react to cinnamon.
It made 4 small muffins in a microwave muffin pan.
I ate 2 yesterday and have 2 more for my breakfast this morning.

The most awesome thing about this recipe is it can easily be done when travelling. Microwaves, eggs and jam are always available. Flax meal is easily purchased or can be taken in a suitcase as well as the other ingredients or even pwdrd eggs. No more hunting for bread or using rice cakes. No wonder I lost weight in travelling since breakfast was 3 thin rice cakes (60 cal) and whatever else I could scrounge up.

I tried some google searches and it seems this was originally an Atkins recipe. One link for more ideas and info, eg. flaxseed = linseed etc) can be found at www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=51386

Thank you for this info. I use the mill flax seed with yogurt every morning as I do need the fiber. I also do refrigerate mine too. Thanks again for the info. I am going to try this and see how I like it as it sounds good.

I would consider milled flax and ground flax seeds the same. i grind whole flax in a coffee grinder too. It is always fresh that way. Ground flax needs to be refridgerated to maintain it's healthy benefits.

If milled is the same as "ground" flax seed, it will work. I use whole flax seed and grind it in a coffee grinder that I have specifically for that purpose. This is a great recipe (but you need to be warned that it has very high fiber content and if you are not accustomed to that much fiber you might want to eat half at a time.)

I have the package of milled flax seed. Can you use 1/4 cup of that?

I was surprised there is no flour. I'm going to try it, especially when I need an inbetween snack when running errands and don't want to make a full batch of muffins.

Yes, just one muffin. It's a pretty good sized muffin, though, so if you have a smaller appetite, you could probably eat it in two intervals.

I "stole" this from the low carb site, but it's a gluten-free recipe and I have made it twice and it's easy and actually pretty tasty:

Muffins in a minute

1 egg
1 tsp olive oil or butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 Splenda packet
1/4 c. flax seed meal

1. Stir dry ingredients together
2. Whisk oil and egg
3. Mix wet with dry, mix well.
4. Spray mug/small bowl with nonstick spray.
5. Microwave until done (recipe said 1 minute) mine is done in 40 seconds. Don't overcook--not pretty when this happens...underdone isn't good either.

Couple of notes: I added a pinch of salt to the one I made this morning and it was much better. Also, you can add all kinds of things to this mix--pumpkin, berries, whatever. Just adjust cooking times if you add more stuff.
