This incredible vegan and gluten mug muffin is made with chia seeds and is a variation of my 3 minute blueberry mug muffin that I originally made with a regular egg. My friend Vicki doesn't eat eggs, so I tried to make a fast 3 minute mug muffin that she ( and all my vegan readers) could enjoy.
You know what? I like the vegan version
I make this muffin every day for breakfast. It's oozing warm strawberries and blueberries. I can't wait to eat it each day. The Chia seeds are a powerhouse of nutrients. They are a really good vegan source of Omega 3, calcium, protein and B vitamins. For additional nutritional information about chia seeds see : Chia seeds
It is very quick and easy to make, tastes fabulous, and is only 3 Points Plus on Weight Watchers ( Yay!!) I don't like to use the microwave, but only 3 minutes??? I will experiment with baking it in the oven and let you know...
I usually make a green juice ( romaine lettuce, cucumber, celery, kale or collard , carrots) when I first wake and then look forward to my tasty filling muffin about 1/2 hour later. The muffin is quite filling because it is made with coconut flour which is very high in fiber. Trust me, this muffin will hold you.

1 Tablespoon of chia seeds ( black or white)
3 Tablespoons of unsweetened almond or coconut milk

Mix chia seeds and almond milk in the mug. Allow to sit for a few minutes or don't if you are in a hurry. Add mashed banana and mix and then add the coconut flour and mix well with a spoon. Add the berries and microwave for 3.5 minutes ( depending on your microwave- if yours is very powerful try 3 minutes) . Turn the mug over and it should slide right out. It will be very hot, so allow to cool a little before eating.
