Blueberry Flax a Coffee Cup

There are a billion and one recipes for baked goods cooked in a coffee cup in the microwave.  This one is tasty, easy and actually healthy!  I adapted it from one I found online but really made it my own.

Blueberry Flax Muffin in a Coffee Cup

1 egg
1 tsp melted coconut oil
1 T maple syrup or honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/4 c ground flax (I just grind the hell out of the seeds in my coffee grinder but you could use the flax seed meal as well)
1/4 c blueberries, frozen is fine

Whip the egg, oil and syrup.  Add the dry ingredients and then stir in the blueberries.  Pour into a coffee cup you've oiled a bit (I'm lazy and use the spray crap even though it's really not all that good for you).  Cook in microwave for 90 seconds.  If it isn't firm cook another 30-60 seconds.  Put on plate and serve with butter and/or a little more maple syrup!

Be sure to make one for each person or they'll try to eat yours!
