Looks like chocolate coral reef, no? A brown sponge maybe?

The above recipe was sent me to me by a reader (thanks Anita!).  You can find the original recipe here along with several different versions, including blueberry and walnut.  I wanted chocolate.


One Minute Flax Muffin


  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  • Combine all ingredients in a large mug and microwave for 50 seconds.  Pops right out – you don’t even need to grease the mug.


Eat warm and top with ice-cream.
