Muffins for a healthy breakfast or a hearty desert.
Top Review by Roxygirl in Colorado
These are a "MUST TRY" if you like flax! I am just getting into flax muffins and have tried a few recipes. I didn't notice that these didn't require any butter/oil till have way into my prep (I am leary of fat-free!). I was so delighted how these turned out. They have a wonderful taste with the cinnamon and apple (I couldn't believe I was out of carrots, so I had to omit). These had a wonderful texture, sturdy with fluffy insides. I couldn't believe these are "fat free!" I think the white wheat flour contributed to the texture! I am looking forward to trying it in other recipes, too. Thanks Chef Glaucia, for a super recipe, that is now a new favorite for me. Great photo, too! Roxygirl
