These muffins are full of grains, apples and nuts that are good for you. I found the recipe on a box of milled flax seed. Flax seed is nature's richest plant source of OMEGA-3 OILS!
- 1⁄4 cup ground flax seeds
- 3⁄4 cup whole wheat graham flour
- 3⁄4 cup white flour
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 1⁄2 cups finely chopped apples
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup chopped nuts
- Blend all dry ingredients together in a bowl.
- In a seperate bowl; combine egg, oil, and milk; add dry ingredients to egg mixture and stir until JUST blended.
- Fold in apples and nuts; batter will be thick.
- Fill well greased muffin cups 2/3 full; bake at 400 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes, or until tops spring back when touched.
A good healthy muffin and by substituting buttermilk for sweet milk you will have a moister product. Also could try yoghurt but add a couple more tablespoons.
These are wonderful. I made them exactly like the recipe. I didn't not find them dry at all, as a few did. I would like to point out a few things about flax seed. Our bodies can not get nutrients from whole flax seeds (google it!). I use a small coffee grinder to grind the flax seed. Also, flax seed DOES have wonderful Omega 3's--which can easily go rancid. Store flax seed in the freezer, and only grind what you need. Or store your already ground flax seed in the fridge or freezer--it will help to keep it fresh and tasty. I also keep my nuts in the freezer for the same reason. I will try these next time with the applesauce instead of oil--I didn't have any on hand today.
Simple to make and very tasty!! I love this muffin. It's moistened, and soft and fluffy! I didn't have any ground flax seeds and nuts, I omitted them. I made a recipe double quantity and used square pan. so glad i found this. Thanks for posting. I will definitely be making them again.
