“Magic” Microwave Muffins

Very quick and easy microwave muffin recipe for those of you who love bready things…this recipe makes ONE very large muffin that is a complete BFL meal.

Ingredients:
(Basic muffin)
4 1/2 T. protein powder (chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry)
4 1/2 T. oatmeal (can be whole or ground)
1/4 tsp. baking soda
2-3 packets of Splenda to taste
1/2 c. water (Cut this down to 1/3 c. if your muffin comes out too
mushy, overflows your cooking container, or if you add fruit.)

(Optional Add-ins–mix and match)
Fruit: 1/4 c. fruit fresh or frozen (peaches, cherries, strawberries,
blueberries, mixed berries all work well)

Nuts: 1 T. ground almonds or walnuts

Flavoring: 1/2 t. cocoa (to boost chocolate flavored protein powder)
or 1/2 t. vanilla or almond extract (to boost vanilla or strawberry
protein powder)
——————
Preparation:
1. Mix all of the Basic Muffin ingredients together in a 2-3 cup glass
or ceramic container (I use a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup.) Plastic
causes the mix to heat up too quickly and overflow.

2. If you want to add a bit of texture, flavor, and healthy fat, you
can mix and match ingredients from the optional Add-ins area, but
don’t choose more than one item from each category. Stir in your
extra ingredients.

3. Microwave the mix for 2 minutes on high. The “muffin” will climb
the sides of the container, so you might want to put a plate
underneath it.

4. Wait for the muffin to cool and deflate to normal size. 🙂
Ignore the lopsided look of the muffin and dig in. Enjoy!
