Have you read Laurel’s Kitchen By Laurel Robertson, Carol Flinders and Brownwen Godfrey? It was first printed in 1976. My copy is yellow with age. When I was first married, I used this cookbook a lot. They talk about being the Keeper of the Keys. “Traditionally the world over, the women in the house has been known as the keeper of the keys. To hold the keys to the household, to the storerooms, attics, chests and cupboards, was a position of great responsibility and therefore great honor.” I loved the book at the time. I would bake round loaves of bread in coffee cans, sprout my own beans, and make yogurt from scratch. I was in charge of cooking and feeding the family. I still am. I no longer bake bread or sprout beans or make yogurt from scratch.
Now, I make grain free muffins in a minute. This is great for breakfast. Today, I had it after my workout with a delicious cup of organic french pressed coffee.
Muffin in a Cup!
– ¼ cup of ground flax
– 1 tsp of baking powder
– 2 tsp of cinnamon
– 1 tsp of coconut oil
– 1 egg
– 1 packet of Stevia or 1 squirt of liquid stevia
Place the ingredients into a mug (I use a Pyrex measuring cup) and put it in the microwave for 60 seconds. Allow to cool and then enjoy!
Easy peasy.The basic recipe is from Jorge Cruise. Of course, I add my own pet touches, chopped walnuts, raisins, shredded coconut. Get creative! Today I added fresh blueberries from my food co op.
This is a wonderful treat for your kids. Thomas and I made them when he got home from camp the other day. Easy for him to make as well.
Try it out and let me know what your pet touches are! I love to hear from you.
