Healthy Apple Walnut Muffins With Flax Seed

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.

I followed the recipe exactly except for substituting organic brown sugar, and they came out really dry. I don't know if I did something wrong. Next time I will add some applesauce to make them more moist and have more apple flavor.

Well, okay. I admit it. My flaxseeds did NOT grind to a powder, and my food processor started smelling funny so I decided not to push my luck there. Ignoring this slight setback, I decided the flaxseeds were so small it didn't matter anyway, and proceeded. I'm glad I did! I made 12 medium size muffins and 12 baby ones, which I only put in for 10 min. The baby muffins were more moist. However, both were great! I was a bit sceptical when I saw how little sugar there was, even though I normally halve the amount of sugar given in a recipe, but it was just right. I used borwn sugar and added 1 tsp cinnamon, and now these muffins will definitely be a keeper. Very nutty. Thanks!
