This is a recipe I came up with for flax seed using Banana Muffins by Evie*. I tried changing it and it worked perfectly. I sometimes add dried or freeze-dried fruit to these. This recipe make a wonderful flax muffin. The addition of flax seed to recipes gives a nutty flavor without nuts.

I"ve had this recipe saved for some time now and was looking for a healthy muffin to make for the NewYear. The only deviance I made was to use 3/4 cup splenda in place of the sugar. I reduced the amount of flax down to 1/2 cup since I was using flax meal. Really good muffin!!!

Wonderful, versatile recipe. I have made these several times, and done variations on the theme. This is a very stable, dense muffin, so it stands up to creative license. I have tried the applesauce and spice addition another reviewer suggested, and also added chocolate chips or a swirl of Nutella on top to make it sweet. Speaking of sweet, I have found that dropping the sugar down to 1/2 cup doesn't seem to adversely affect the taste or texture.

This is my fav muffin recipe! It's so quick and easy. Anytime my bananas are past their prime this gets made. My husband and mother both LOVE them. They are great for breakfast or a snack. I find myself using more milk than what's called (even with only using 3 bananas) I've also used up to 4-5 bananas with out the recipe breaking. I highly recommend using all organic ingredients and "If You Care" large baking cups. They don't need to be sprayed and the muffin don't stick.
