Hello, everybody! I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen. Last post, I shared a healthy chocolate cake recipe, but today I’m sharing how to make a muffin in a cup for a healthy lunch. Let’s get cooking!

One of my biggest problems when it comes to eating healthy has been finding a substitute for store-bought bread. Unfortunately, store-bought bread is processed food. It’s full of refined flour and hidden sugar that doesn’t do anybody good.
The problem is I love bread! How am I supposed to have toast or a sandwich? Sigh.
That’s why I’ve been looking for an easy, quick substitute for bread. And it had to be no-bake, because I’m a baking dummy. Impossible, right? Well, I found it!
This bread is not processed food. It’s made of natural, nutritious ingredients. It has loads of fiber and you can use it to make a sandwich or spread nut butter on it. What’s not to like?
Let’s get cooking!
- 1/4 cup of oatmeal flour or ground flaxseed
- 1/4 cup of milk or almond milk
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
- Dash of salt
Mix the chia seeds and milk and let soak for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, blend this mixture with the rest of the ingredients.
Pour this mixture into a greased mold. You can use a bowl or a cup. I used a large cup so the bread would come out round.
Pop the mold into the microwave oven for 1 to 2 minutos. Careful, because the mixture gets pretty fluffy!
Take it out and let cool for a couple of minutes, and then slice it.
Do what you want with it. I made myself a sandwich with some greens and shredded chicken breast. So good!
I made one for my little girl, and she loved it with peanut butter. Yum!
That’s it! Wasn’t that easy? I think I may have finally found the perfect substitute for store-bought bread. Try it and tell me what you think.
