Jalapeno Cheddar Flax Rolls



The Parts

  • 1 cup  golden or brown flax meal*
  • 4 large cage-free eggs
  • ¾ cup sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 2 T minced garlic
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 t cumin powder or cumin seeds
  • 1 t crushed red pepper
  • canned or fresh jalapeno slices (amount depends on your desire)
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 2 T melted butter or 2 T olive oil
  • oil spray of choice (Pam, organic olive oil spray, etc)

* You can either purchase pre-ground flax or (preferably) grind whole-flax yourself in a coffee grinder or Nutribullet.

The Process

Combine all ingredients thoroughly in a medium-sized bowl. Feel free to be creative and add/subtract ingredients depending on your personal tastes.  Spray the bottom of a standard-sized coffee mug with oil spray. Fill the bottom of the mug with a half inch of the batter. Microwave for 60 seconds (check after a minute to see if batter is fully baked (not gooey on top) If not, microwave for an additional 15 seconds at a time until baked). Use an oven mitt to remove from microwave, dump muffin onto a cookie-cooling rack, and repeat. Cut in half and top with butter, natural (no sugar-added) peanut butter, cream cheese, or whatever strikes your fancy! The options are limitless. Enjoy! Store in an air-tight container at room temperature. Eat within a few days to ensure freshness. These muffins make an excellent addition to every meal just like regular bread and can be toasted or oven-warmed prior to a meal.

Makes: 6-7 small muffins
