READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by AngelaTN

This is a good way to introduce flaxmeal into your diet. These muffins are also Phase II appropriate for the South Beach Diet, just be sure to count this toward your daily nut/seed allowance. Believe me, when you have been craving bread, these muffins taste like heaven!

These were very good! I used apple sauce instead of syrup since I didn't have sugar-free, I also marbled in about 1/3 cup of all natural peanut butter (of course I made lightly smaller servings b/c of this). I do regret not having the syrup b/c I believe the muffin was a little too dry even with apple sauce which typically works pretty well. However, I def. suggest anyone try the swirl of peanut butter, its excellent! Good recipe!
