These muffins are pretty healthy by my standards.

I call them fat-free because the butter has been replaced by 1 1/2 cups flax seed meal. They also contain whole wheat, carrots, apples, raisins, oat bran, and pecans. Practically a granola bar. You can eat them all day long and not feel guilty at all (the recipe does call for 1 cup of brown sugar).

Note: These muffins contain eggs, wheat, and nuts.

My friend Sierra recommended these muffins to me; it’s a very minorly adjusted recipe off the back of Uncle Bob’s Red Mill Flax Seed Meal package.

Flax Muffins

1 1/2 c flour (whole wheat works)
3/4 flax
3/4 oat bran
1 c brown sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 c carrot (shredded)
2 apples (shredded or substitute applesauce – much faster)
1/2 raisins (opt- I use golden)
1 cup of nuts chopped
3/4 c milk (I use soy or almond)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Mix together all the dry ingredients. Add shredded ingredients
Cream brown sugar and eggs (and applesauce). Add vanilla.

Cook for 15-20 minutes at 350.
