I get it! Microwaves are not the best idea for cooking a meal but let's face it, most Americans do use one almost daily! And, I'd rather see a family preparing real ingredients from scratch in a microwave then to see them heat up a frozen dinner. We all start somewhere.
Today's recipe is an update from my post from over a year ago, entitled, Let's Take the Monotony Out of Breakfast. I made it slightly different this time around as I'm preparing for a collaborative event with a Tupperware representative and I'll be sharing the benefits of eating Juice Plus+. We're going to focus on making healthy meals and snacks for families on the go and several stations will be set up as she and I demo plant based nutrition in her serving pieces.
Onward to the recipe!
2 tbs of ground flax
2 tbs of chocolate Complete (like this)
1 T applesauce
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp coconut oil (my favorite brand)
1.5 tsp coconut sugar (this one or that)
1/4 tsp raw honey (I recommend unpasteurized; if you're in So Cal, this one)
Makes 1 Complete Breakfast in a Muffin but it can serve two!
Add ingredients in the order above to a coffee mug or similar microwave-safe cup. Mix thoroughly and cook in your microwave for 1 minute to 1 minute and 20 seconds. Let it sit for 2 minutes. It will still be hot so be careful.
Top with crushed nuts of your choice. Enjoy!
