Healthy Apple Walnut Muffins With Flax Seed

READY IN: 37mins
Recipe by Shelby

I love these!!! AND they're healthy! Really, they are! They smell so good, and the taste is so wonderful. Try them and see for yourself :] However, this is obviously more of a healthy muffin, and therefor not likely to be sugary, but feel free to add more sugar if wanted.

This is a "health muffin." Do not expect a sweet, cake-like muffin. I really liked it overall. I did add vanilla, but I'm not sure that made any real difference. I also found the muffin a bit dry and will also add applesauce next time. The batter was also REALLY thick and hard to deal with, so I think applesauce will help with that too. Anyway, I will make this again.
