The “Oh my pregnant Brain / postpartum /feel good muffin”  – Based on the original recipe seen on Dr oz

The last blog I wrote on our pregnancy “ stud muffin “, our revamped version from the original that was on doctor Oz a few weeks back, went beyond viral on the net. Well needless to say we got totally inspired to do more. So the other night we were at it again, the two mad scientists in the kitchen and his time my friend Jamie Hasson and I came up with an even yummier version (if you can believe) then before.

Here is the original recipe from Dr Oz

Jorge’s Skinny Muffin

Traditional energy bars are often packed with sugar, which can cause a spike and a subsequent crash. These muffins are designed to provide sustainable energy that lasts through lunch, thanks to coconut oil, a healthy fat that’s good for your brain, fiber-rich flaxseed and egg protein.


Makes one serving

1/4-cup ground flax

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp coconut oil

1 egg

1 packet stevia


Mix all ingredients together in a mug and microwave for 50 seconds. Allow to cool to a safe temperature and enjoy!

Lori And Jamie’s “Oh my pregnant brain / postpartum /feel good muffin”

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp coconut oil

1 &1/2 –  tablespoons of honey ( you can add a bit more if you want for sweetness )

Mix all together in large mug. Eyeballing it, make sure its thick like paste if not add more of the flax and goji powder mixture.

Microwave for 1:45-2 minutes

Cool for 5 minutes, take out of mug then cut in half makes 2 muffins. Top with earth balance butter spread, butter, honey, jam or just eat plain .

Break down of what this muffin does for you.

Coconut oil– High in omegas, great for your skin, depression and feeds both you and your baby’s brain. I am OBSESSED with coconut oil there are so many healing benefits. Here is a great article on it -

Flax – High in omegas (omegas help with depression) , flax is high in fiber and helps with constipation and feeds both you and your baby’s brain.

Almond Butter– Rich in calcium and phoshorus , nourishes the blood and high in protein .

Goji Berries (powder) – High in iron, antioxidant and high in vitamin C . Goji berries are known as one of the most nutrient rich super foods on the planet. Helps with vitality, stamina, energy and longevity

Molasses – Rich in iron and good for depression.

Honey – Antioxidant, fights infection , helps reduce inflammation and scarring and aids in digestion .

Banana – High in potassium, antioxidants and can help improve mood according to Dr Oz

Eggs– High in protein, amino acids, omegas, helps regulate brain and nervous system because of levels of choline.
