Paleo Blueberry & Flax Mug Muffin

I shared a one minute flax muffin back in 2012, and wanted to revisit it as I've tweaked it over the years. This is a nice alternative to eggs or a smoothie for breakfast, and can be easily customized with whatever fruit you have on hand.

Likewise, you can skip the added sweetener here or use what works for you. When I serve it to my kids  I use some raw honey or maple syrup.

Paleo Blueberry & Flax Mug Muffin

1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. melted coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbs. coconut or unsweetened almond milk
1 tbs. raw honey or maple syrup (or to taste)
large handful blueberries

Grease a mason jar or microwave-safe mug or cup.

Mix ground flax, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl. Add in egg, melted coconut oil, vanilla, milk and sweetener. Mix until well-blended. Stir in blueberries.

Pour mixture into prepared jar and microwave for 2 minutes. I like to serve mine with a few more blueberries sprinkled on top, and an additional splash of milk.
