    Doc W's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from a friend's--it makes hearty, moist muffins that are good for South Beach Phase 2 because they have no refined carbs or sugar--just oats, oat bran, flax seed, and walnuts. I make them for my partner who has high cholesterol. The flax seed substitutes for oil/butter and also makes them really fluffy; for SB you can substitute fresh/frozen blueberries or cranberries for the craisins. Note: These are NOT SWEET--they are more like a walnut-fruit bread than a sweet muffin, we prefer this. You can make them sweeter by using vanilla soy milk, but that adds sugar to this no-sugar delight. The fruit is also optional--I've made them with just walnuts and they are still delicious. Enjoy!

      This is just up my street, I like the fact that they are not sweet at all. They are very dense but not heavy or gooey. I used the applesauce rather than the banana, I like apples better, and I cut the recipe by half, other than that I followed the recipe. I really liked these and I will be making them again. Very healthy and good for my diabetic diet. Thank you for posting. Made for Healthy choices ABC tag game 2011.

      I liked these a lot! Baked them as an accompaniment to a soup supper. As the recipe says -- not sweet. But great texture, very filling, delicious. I used almond milk, btw, and it worked fine. Thanks!

      I loved these! They were very popular and wonderfully moist. Only changes I made was substitute pecans for walnuts and almond milk for soy. Still turned out wonderfully and would make them again!
