Blueberry Flax Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by PaulaG

While looking for an interesting recipe for blueberry muffins I stumbled across information regarding flax seed. I looked at a number of muffin recipes and combined several to come up with these. They are healthy, with no added oil, yet moist.

I made this as directed and just like the other reviewers mentioned, the ratio of wet to dry ingredients isn't correct. I had made this once before with many subs and they turned out great then. I had used whole wheat pastry flour instead of regular flour, regular sugar in place of the Splenda, 1/2 cup blueberry yogurt and 1/2 cup mashed banana instead of the buttermilk (which is probably why they turned out great), and butter extract instead of the lemon extract.
