I’ve never met a muffin as nutritious as this one. Most muffins are more similar to cakes than a breakfast food or snack, and may as well be covered in icing! Try this incredibly fast recipe for a fiber-powered breakfast.
-1 Tablespoon coconut flour (or almond flour, regular flour works too, but not as healthy)
-1 teaspoon flax seed meal (ground flax seeds, can use whole flax seeds also)
-1 teaspoon psyllium husk powder (my favorite brand is Konsyl, can be found at most pharmacies)
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-1 Tablespoon raisins
-1 tablespoon water
-1 Tablespoon applesauce OR 1/3 banana (and omit the raisins)
-1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
1.) Mix the dry ingredients in a small microwaveable bowl.
2.) Add the wet to the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
Microwave on high for two minutes.
Enjoy with light cream cheese or a sliver of butter!
These muffins are about 250 calories with a lot of fiber and protein. They can be a breakfast all on its own, or with some yogurt, cottage cheese, or fruit preserves. Be sure to drink plenty of water with them since they are so high in fiber.
