    Flax meal and almond flour

    Can I use flax meal seed flour in place of almond flour? Can I use it in mug cake?

    Yes you can use flaxmeal, it might not taste as good though. I use flaxmeal in the 1 minute muffin.

    Coconut flour is another option. That's good in mugcake.

    1-minute Muffin

    1/4 cup flax meal or almond flour or coconut flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder**
    1 packet sweetner (I use Truvia)
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 egg
    1-2 teaspoons butter

    Mix the dry ingredients in a large coffe cup. Add egg and butter; mix well. Microwave for 50-seconds to 1-minute. Muffin pops right out.
    Top with berries or eat as is.

    **Making Baking Powder
    •You need baking soda and cream of tartar to make baking powder.

    •Mix 2 parts cream of tartar with 1 part baking soda. For example, mix 2 tsp cream of tartar with 1 tsp baking soda.

    •Use the amount of baking powder called for by the recipe.

    I've been making flax meal - coconut flour pancakes for the past week in P3. I had some sensitivity issues with nuts when I first entered P3, so have stayed with flax and coconut flour. May not taste as good as almond flour, but the pancakes come out great!

    This may sound crazy but I actually prefer the taste of coconut flour over almond flour!

    not crazy at all! i prefer it in some things too, and find it to be lighter. the chocolate mug cake (haven't even dared yet on this P3 ) was soooo delicious!
