This "pudding" can be put together in the microwave in 3-4 minutes. You can add berries or other "mix-ins" - see suggestions below. The flax gives it lots of fiber and good fat, plus a nice nutty flavor.
- 1/4 cup flax seed meal
- 1/4 cup water (some of the liquid can be sugar-free syrup, if desired)
- 1 egg
- Sugar substitute to taste
- Mixins as desired (see below)
Mix flax meal, egg, and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for about 45 seconds. Move the cooked part of the pudding towards the center of the bowl and add any mix-ins you want. Microwave for about 45-60 more seconds, depending on mix-ins (frozen fruit will need even longer cooking, as it will cool down the pudding). Stir and eat.
