Sort of related (and referenced in the original thread where this muffin discussion came from) is the muffins I've been baking, 6 or 12 at a time, in the oven with muffin pans. I've already blogged about my muffin experiments so I'll post the links to the relevant blogs:

http://www.dadamo.com/B2blogs/blogs/index.php/ruth/2013/04/09/reflections-on-passover-baking

http://www.dadamo.com/B2blogs/blogs/index.php/ruth/2013/04/17/playing-with-my-new-food-processor

I've been keeping the banana-carob muffins in the house since I first baked them- I baked 13 the other day (the bananas were bigger and it was too much for 12 muffins) and another 12 today. I'll make the pear ones again if Jack doesn't eat the fresh pears fast enough. I'm sure any kind of fruit would work, but I haven't experimented with anything else yet.

Try adding 1 Tablespoon Hershey cocoa dry powder and 8 drops of stevia or one lid of organic chocolate extract. with other ingredients, get even put half in cup add 1 square dark chocolate, cover with rest of batter. Microwave same amount of time and you will have the benefit of the dark chocolate melted.

I don't think of food as diet food. I try to get what is required for my blood type in me each day as needed.  (Better health wise then white flour being used instead of flaxseed or flaxseed/chia seed combination. I add 1T oil and 1 egg some days.

I may have posted this recipe sometime ago.

It sounds delicious - in fact, out of this world! I could use this for a dessert for myself! I just found a banana, dried cranberry and carob muffin left from a batch I made a few weeks ago in the freezer, and it was better than ever. Yummy! I also found one biscuit left from a practice session I had recently, not my mother's biscuits by any stretch, but I am determined to make biscuits that seem real and are compliant, one way or another! I had some melted carob chips on the biscuit. Actually, it tasted pretty good! I had worked outside most of the afternoon/early evening, and these two tidbits hit the spot! Thanks for posting your sumptuous version of muffin in a cup!!

My old stand by is still the 2 Tbsp ground flax seeds; 2 Tbsp chia seeds; 1/2 tsp baking powder; 1 tsp ground ginger root; 1 tsp cinnamon; agave to taste; 1 tortured egg; 1/2 tsp oil.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Yes, this is my stand by, too, except I add some hemp seed, a little salt and cloves and leave off some of the cinnamon and ginger. But my family has always been a "dessert" bunch, and something that tastes like dessert, looks like one and is over the top good for me is really neat! I better get off this subject or I will be in the kitchen cooking up one of them right now. This is making me hungry!

If you omit the spices and you do try putting in a hunk of cheese in the middle, make it gouda if you can.  Gouda is genoharmonic when combined with the flax!

I wish I could have gouda because I love it! It was on one diet I had, but I soon found out that it was a serious avoid for me! And it is an avoid on the diet I have now. I love melted cheese, but I will have to be satisfied with mozzarella and some lactase.    

But since you mentioned it, I discovered that the lecithin I put in mine is harmonic with the flax and chocolate (which I will start adding now)! And I need to start putting blueberries in it, too, and ghee instead of oil. Girl, you've started me on a whole new path with this muffin and the added Geno Harmonic muscle! Thank you!! I think I will have to stop short of the fish, though!

As an FYI...  Genoharmonic combinations are VERY individualized - so while this is a GH combination for you, it doesn't have the same status for all those of the same genotype.

You're right.  I should have clarified that the gouda, to work in that genoharmonic way with flax would have to be at the least a Neutral.... and the flax a Bene or diamond.

Do I have that right, ABoe?

I think that the ONLY way you have genoharmonic combinations is when they are listed as such in your SWAMI report...  

I don't have Gouda or Flax in any of my GH combinations, so it would never be a GH combo for me even though both are superfoods, so are medicinal on their own.

Anyway, I am so happy Enobattar brought this up because it clued me in to how much more healthy I can make my muffins than what I was already doing - with hardly any effort! Love it!

Yes, genoharmonic combinations are highly individualized. Most of the GH  combos on my SWAMI consist of foods that I don't have access to, such as fishes that I can't find locally or meats that I can't find in kosher form (or I can sometimes find but are WAY too expensive to eat regularly.) I get a few juices with green tea, and some vegetables with butter or ghee, but otherwise my GH combos are useless. Meanwhile, my daughter's SWAMI gives her such delicious combinations as pecans with chocolate and ghee.

Spring,

OK, so what am I doing wrong.  I really wanted a muffin in a mug with my smoothie this AM.

I'm allergic to eggs so how do I get it to rise.  I know it's in one of these threads but I just couldn't find it.  My ADD is getting in the way.  Sorry!

Please help me.

Joy

P.S.  mine didn't rise a whit.  I put all the dry ingredients and non dry on your recipe except for the egg.  My mug is about 6oz. so I did cut back on the quantities for flax and chia seeds and others.

Joy, Christina makes hers without egg and this is her recipe:
Quoted Text
My version of the chia muffin today, in accordance with my factored in allowances:
4 tbsp ground chia seeds
2 tsp carob powder
a bit of bicard
a bit of salt (too much due to new salt shaker grrrrr ....)
a bit of red grape juice to bind

it is sitting on top of the stove in a paper cup inside one of my flavorstone pots (which are great for short baking periods).

Looking at it now it is fluffing up ... no idea when it will be ready ... I give it two minutes ... What sort of consistency is suppose to have?


Since you mentioned making a muffin, I think I'm going to have that for a snack! We had a very late lunch and a muffin should be great right now! Hope Christina's recipe works for you!

Spring,

It's not going to work for me, unfortunately.  I'm doing it in the microwave.  I don't have carob powder, red grape juice to bind, bicard (is that baking soda) and don't have a flavorstone pot.

So, what is going to make the muffin rise?  

Joy

I used everything you listed except the egg.  Why isn't it working?

I don't think it will matter that you will be doing it in the microwave. You can leave off the carob powder (or can you use cocoa?). Maybe you could do what some of us have been doing and use applesauce that should work in place of the grape juice. If you want to wait until I have time to practice a bit without an egg, I will do that. We are having a storm right now, though, and I am going to get off my computer. I had gotten online to check it out and decided to see if you had any luck with the recipe! Later!

Spring,

OK, just be safe and get through the storm.  When you have a chance maybe you can make it without the egg and let me know how it goes.  It seems like a very flexible kind of muffin and so easy.  Cristina's recipe is great for her but won't work for me.  I can wait but I'm not going to miss out on what alot of folks are enjoying that's for sure.  Take your time and let me know how it turns out.

Victoria,

I cut way back on the flax and chia seeds.  It calls for 2 tablespoons mixed.  I used 1 teaspoon.  I was concerned because the cup is about 6 oz. and Spring's almost went over the top she said.  I don't have an 8 oz. cup that I can use in the microwave.  I guess I cut back too much?

I appreciate the help you can offer, ladies.

I have just published in my FB 'Muffin in a Cup' album with photos of my 'top of the stove' process and result.  Today I baked the egg version of the muffin because I wanted to see the difference with my eggless version.  I will be adding photos of the eggless versions in days to come (or maybe later today if I get around to it ) ...  Here is the link ... (for those who have FB account PM me if you want to link ...

Cristina,

I'd love to see a photo of the "eggless version" and the version with the egg" posted here on the BTD.
I don't have a Facebook account right now and don't plan on getting one.

I just bought some organic applesauce without any sugar to add to the mix (I will put in my own type of sweetner.

Thanks.  It helps for me to see a photo if you can.

I should have done this this morning when I was hungry and out of muffins!  I didn't have time to bake any today either, so I think I'll try that tomorrow.
