If you live in a household that is anything like ours, you barely have time to breathe. When I get the opportunity to eat in the morning, it has to be portable and quick. Here are some other On-The-Go muffin recipes.

Why are ginger, coconut and blueberry special?

First of all, I eat all three in my smoothie daily. Yes there are other ingredients but these seem to keep me going every morning. To get my son to eat fruit, I told him that blueberries are like soap for your body: they clean the inside of your body to keep you healthy. Ginger and coconut have similar effects. One awesome quality about ginger, for example, it helps keep your immune system in check. If you are busy like me, you probably don’t sleep enough, so you can get all the immune system help you can get!





Makes 12 muffins

2 tbsp flax seed + 6 tbsp water

1 cup Bob’s Red Mill all purpose gluten free flour
¾ cup masa
2 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup honey 
1 cup Good Karma Flaxmilk or non dairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
¾ cup dried blueberries
2 Tablespoon coconut flakes 


First, place the flax seed and water in a large mixing bowl. Stir it well, and set aside to thicken and become your flax “egg.” It should sit for about 2 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease muffin tin and cupcake pan.

In a large bowl, combine flour, masa, baking soda and powder, cinnamon, chia, and salt in a bowl, and mix well to combine.

Combine the honey, milk, vanilla, oil, and vinegar into the bowl with the flax “egg.” Stir well to combine.

Pour the liquid mixture into the dry and stir. Mix in blueberries and coconut, then scoop the thick batter into the muffin tins. 

Bake for 20-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool and enjoy for breakfast or a snack.



By the way, I made my first Vegan Egg with this recipe!

Who knew flax eggs were super easy to make. I was forced to attempt a flax egg during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic lockdown when everyone was hoarding food and the farmers were not able to keep up with the demand. Can you tell a chicken to lay more than one egg a day? I think not…Yes, buying eggs was extremely tricky. When I see a challenge, I stand up to it and look it straight in the eye.
