Here is the original recipe from Dr Oz

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!

Below is our version-

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.
