Blueberry-Lemon Flax Muffins

READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by KathleenP

I recently read about how healthy both flaxseed and blueberries are, so thought I'd try to come up with a tasty way to use them together. These muffins are not too sweet or tart- a great way to start the day!

Although I hate to rate recipes this low, we just did not like the outcome of this muffin. It came out dry and the lack of sugar in it was way to noticable. I ended up throwing the batch away because no one in the house would touch them! :(
