Take the monotony out of #breakfast! #Recipe

Recently, I asked my friend how she's doing on the weight loss journey since having her baby a few months ago.

She told me about Dr. Oz's microwave muffin. I looked it up right away to read the ingredients. I suggested a few ingredient modifications. She also told me that the muffin is dry and not very sweet. And, really... who wants a dry, unsweetened muffin? Boo! 

She told me she adds a tad bit of applesauce but didn't know the exact measurement - this helps with the much needed moisture content of the muffin. The recipe calls to sweeten it with stevia. I shared with her to try organic coconut sugar because it's gone through one process (or two depending on how you look at it) - from the sap of the coconut to boiling then hardening. I say one process because there is only one man-made process.

Based on the original recipe and her suggestion to add applesauce, I opted to add raw honey for the needed sweetness (at least to her and I). It took me approximately 6 attempts before I could come up with an edible product. They were either too wet (eww), too cinnamon-y or too dry. 

On the 7th try,  it came out delicious!

Here's my recipe:

1/4 cup ground flax seed
1 T apple sauce 
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp coconut oil
1.5 tsp coconut sugar
1/4 tsp raw honey

Mix thoroughly and cook for 1 minute to 1 minute 10 seconds. Let it sit for 2 minutes. It will still be hot so be careful. Enjoy!
