Second only to cake batter recipes is my love for single-serving recipes. I just love the idea of only using ingredients as needed, and I’ll take a fresh-out-of-the-oven treat over an pre-made one any day of the week.
On this particular day, that looked a little bit like this.
- 1/4 cup almond meal/flour (I used Trader Joe’s)
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1 flax egg **
- 1/2 teaspoon Orange NuStevia Liquid
- 1 NuNaturals Stevia packet OR 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- “orange butter” for topping (optional – see below)
directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl whisk together the butter, flax egg, sweetener, and Orange NuStevia Liquid. Add the almond flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until combined. Pour batter into a greased/lined muffin pan, and bake for 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.
** To make flax egg, mix together 1 teaspoon ground flax and 3 teaspoons water in a cup and let sit for at least a minute. Using one egg white will work as well, but I prefer the consistency that the flax egg gives (using an egg white will lend to a fluffier, less dense muffin).
I took the muffin up a notch by topping it with an easy orange-flavored butter. To make the butter I combined 1/2 tablespoon of room temperature butter with 4-5 drops of the Orange NuStevia Liquid.
Uh, yum. The combination of the orange and almond flavors was unique but really delicious, and it made for a perfect addition to my breakfast. I’ll definitely be making this again soon!
