    joeknee's Note:

    Due to my low carb lifestyle, I've been experimenting with many flax muffin recipes. I came up with this chocolate version that uses pumpkin to help keep it moist. They are also yummy for my gluten free friends! I will also add grain sweetened chocolate chips as a treat and to make these even better. (They won't be gluten free anymore with grain-sweetened chips).

    Yield:

    muffins

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Oven 350 degrees. Makes 9 muffins.
    2. 2
      Mix first 5 ingredients and set aside.
    3. 3
      In medium sized microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate block and slowly, gently melt in microwave, stirring every ten seconds. Dont burn the chocolate. Finish the melting by vigorously stirring in the bowl.
    4. 4
      Add in the baking powder. If it cools down, heat for a couple seconds in the microwave and then add one egg. Stir until completely blended. (This takes patience and time). Once blended, add the other two eggs and mix well. Add the remaining ingredients and combine.

      Add wet to dry and mix well. Let batter set for a few minutes while you prepare pans for 9 cupcakes. (I use silicone cupcake liners).
    6. 6
      Place batter evenly in liners with an ice cream scoop. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until the top is firm to touch. Cool completely and store in ziplock bag in fridge (remember there is no sugar to preserve them).

      Very tasty! A nice switch from the usual cinnamon-y flax muffin. You don't taste the pumpkin, but it would be lacking without it. It adds just the right "oomph" to make this a great muffin (with or without carbs!). Not too sweet either. :)
