This is the recipe for a basic MIM's (Muffin in a Mug.) This little goodie is useful for all sorts of things. It can be eaten as is, or used for other stuff.  I sometimes leave the sweetener and cinnamon out and use it in stuffings or just as a savory "bread." It's loaded with fiber and has few net carbs!

Serving Size: 1

1/4 cup flax meal (8.09 total carbs, 7.6 fiber) (30 g)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder (0.64 net carbs)
1 packet splenda packet (0.9 net carbs)
1 teaspoon cinnamon (1.84 total carbs, 1.2 fiber)
1 large egg (0.6 net carbs)
1 teaspoon butter

(total carbs is 12.07, fiber is 8.8; net carbs is 3.27)

Put the dry ingredients in a coffee mug.
Then add the egg and the butter. Mix. (I melt the butter in the micro first before mixing.)

Microwave 1 minute (or more). Take out. slice, butter, eat.

Cream cheese would go nicely, too.
The shape of this can be changed by making it in a bowl.
It can be "toasted" once it's cooked.
The cinnamon can be replaced. I would imagine that any sugar free syrup
could be added.

Many people count the flax as a carb/fiber wash, so then the net carbs
would be 2.78.
