Yummy Healthy Bran Flax Muffins

Flaxseed Meal Facts.......high in fiber 4 grams per 2TBL serving,
as much fiber as 1 1/2 cups cooked oatmeal. Can help to reduce
LDL the bad cholesterol. You can substitute for shortening or
cooking oil at a ratio of 3 to 1 in baked goods. Example-1-1/2 cups
of flaxseed meal can replace 1/2 cup butter, marg. or oil in a recipe.
Its also full of omega 3s the plant version. But I have heard that
omega levels go down when cooked. You can sprinkle it on oatmeal
after its cooked. Baked foods with flaxseed tend to brown more rapidly.
They were very good and moist, But watch out thats a lot of FIBER.

  1. I followed a recipe similar to this on my flaxseed box and it was VERY good! Flaxseed is the way to go, we put it in a lot of stuff.

  2. Yeah thats where i got the recipe. But I substituted the white flour for wheat flour! I'm trying to do away with anything white!
