Recipe by cathianne

This is just another iteration of a healthy muffin recipe. Don't expect a bakery muffin - these are hardcore.

These were so good, and a great way to get some flax in the kids! I don't think these are too "hardcore"...in my experimentation I have made some real doozies LOL. These are a perfect balance between healthy and yummy. I did not use quinoa flour (will def try, though); instead I used a combo of whole wheat, oat, and spelt flours. I did reduce the oil by a few tablespoons and they came out fine; I figured the moisture in the pumpkin, applesauce, and flax would more than suffice. I also added generous shakes of nutmeg, ginger, and clove for that pumpkin pie sort of flavor. Thanks for the recipe! I know it will become a go-to. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
