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.

My husband really liked these. He isn't too big on whole wheat....but liked these....and they have no cinnamon which is why I chose this recipe (he can't eat it). The only thing I changed was leaving out the flax seeds--didn't have any. I got 17 muffins from the recipe and I filled the cups almost full. Thanks for the recipe. Will be making them again.

My first foray into using flax seed and trying to make healthier baking choices. The muffins turned out great! My DH thought the texture was a little "different" but I thought they were fine. I also added cinnamon and a bit of freshly grated nutmeg. I think both complemented the recipe very well. Thanks for posting it!

I made these along with recipes 181385 & 81900 (also fairly healthy muffins). These were definitely the favorite of the three. They really don't taste like "healthy" muffins at all but are sweet and light. I'll make these again.

These were very good for about 2 days. After that they turned VERY bitter and gross. I'm not sure if it was the flax or if I should have kept them in the fridge. But they weren't eatable at all after 3 days.

Amazing muffins. I used only whole wheat flour though and no white flour. I also didn't have flax seed on hand. Instead of the oil I added 1/4c of unsweetened applesauce, and added more apples and raisins as well. Yummy!
