Make Ahead Flax Muffin in a Mug

If you’ve been enjoying the Flax Muffin in a Mug recipe I recently shared in the Inner Circle newsletter, then you’re going to LOVE this make-ahead version I’ve developed, which makes it even easier to bake up a hot and wholesome breakfast treat on the go.


3 cups ground flaxseed
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup raw sunflower seeds (if desired)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons baking powder

1 cup unflavored whey protein powder (optional)

Combine all ingredients and store in fridge. To make a muffin, crack a large egg into an over-sized, microwave-safe coffee mug and whisk with a fork. Add scant 1/2 cup dry mix and stir until well combined. (Adding too much mix will make the muffin dry. )

Microwave for 60 seconds. If the top is still wet, microwave for 10 more seconds. You can shake the muffin out of the cup onto a plate, or eat directly from the mug with a spoon.

Makes 12 muffins

  1. I make mine without any sugar being added (doesn’t need it), and when I eat them I like to add 1 tsp almond butter to the muffin.
