Time Evaporates

Wow, how did that happen! I thought it had just been a little while since I had posted and when I looked at the last date, I was astounded! I've been working with lots of new recipes and modifying old ones. All the questions about gluten free diets end up in my basket at my Cooperative Extension day job. Life is full. Since we all face the dilemma of lack of time, here is a variation on the Chocolate Cake in a Mug recipe. This one is the 2 1/2 Minute Muffin recipe. You can mix it up and bake it in the microwave in a flash. One of the fastest comfort breakfasts I know. Enjoy!

In a large coffee mug mix the following ingredients:

1/4 cup rice flour
2 tbsp finely chopped pecans (chop a bunch when you have time and keep them in the freezer) (If you are allergic to nuts - skip them.)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. oil
1/4 cup rice, soy, or regular milk
1 tsp. ground flax seed
2-3 tbsp. chopped fruit, dried fruit, or blueberries

Place the coffee mug in the microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes. (Don't overcook or the muffin will be to dry.) Tip out onto a plate and eat while warm. . . and you are off!
