This make a very yummy and healthful muffin. I added a cup of dried cranberries and subbed 4 tablespoons ground flax seed and 6 tablespoons of water for the eggs. Came out great. This recipe does make a lot of muffins though, next time I plan on cutting it in half.

We loved these. I doubled the recipe and it made 24 PLUS a pan of mini muffins. I used Fat Free Organic Milk and organic eggs. Thanks for a great new healthy favorite !
