– ¼ cup Flaxseed Meal
– ½ tsp Baking Powder
– ¼ tsp Ground Cinnamon
– 1 Tbsp Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener with Erythritol

Instructions (step-by-step):

1. Add 1 tsp coconut oil to a microwave-safe mug that’s at least 2.5 to 3 inches tall (to prevent the muffin from overflowing)
2. If the coconut oil is not 100% liquid, then melt it in the microwave for about 10-20 seconds until it is all melted and without any clumps. Do not overheat the coconut oil, or it will cook the raw egg when added to it.

10. Stir everything together until well combined.
11. Stir in any flavor add-ins desired, such as pumpkin, blueberries, lemon zest, raspberries, chocolate chips, walnuts, pecans, etc.
12. Microwave on high for about 1 minute 30 seconds (based on a 1,000-watt microwave). Adjust timing in 10-15 second increments to be slightly shorter or longer depending on the output wattage of your microwave.
13.Let the mug muffin cool for at least 1 minute before eating, so you don’t burn yourself.
