One of the biggest changes I have had to make to my diet since cutting out processed food has been the move away from bread. I have always been a complete bread addict. Seriously I’ve been known to push people to the ground if they get between me and my Vegemite toast. But in an effort to heal my thyroid condition and look after my ‘future health’ I’ve experimentally cut out all processed food, grains (except occasional rice), gluten and more recently I’m trialling life without dairy. This one minute muffin recipe has been a total lifesaver and helped me get through the transition phase to life after bread. No grains, no gluten, no dairy and it seriously tastes okay. It’s not a new recipe – it’s been around and I’ve found different version on many sites. My favourite is this one from Healthy Living How To. I’ve simplified it a bit – because I need it to be speedy.
In a small mixing bowl add 1/4 of a cup of almond meal, 1/4 cup of flaxseed meal, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, pinch of Pink Himalayian salt (or regular salt if you prefer), an egg and 1/2 table-spoon of coconut oil (or butter).
Mix with a fork or small whisk. The mixture is rather sticky and needs a good strong mix.
Place the mixture into a small oiled (use coconut oil if you have it) microwave safe ramekin dish.
Put the full ramekin dish in the microwave on your regular setting for 1.oo minute and remove it.
Tip the ramekin upside down and let the muffin slide on out.
Allow to cool and then slice in half ready for whatever you decide to fill it with. Personally I like to use mine to make my own bacon and egg muffin. But I believe you can fancy it up in all kinds of ways that I haven’t even tried out myself yet.
