Apple Flaxseed Muffins


A friend of mine shared this recipe with me and I must say they are delicious and healthy. No sugar, no bad fats and great flavor.

1 1/4 Cup Flaxseed Meal

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

1 Tablespoon Cinnamon

1 Teaspoon Nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

2/3 cup baking stevia

4 large eggs (beaten)

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 cup of water

1 tablespoon pure vanilla

1 medium Granny Smith Apple (finely grated)

1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare a muffin tin with paper liners. **I find that mini muffins work best with this recipe**

Mix dry ingredients together, mix wet ingredients. Add the wet to the dry and mix well. Let batter stand 10 minutes.

Scoop batter into the muffin pan and bake for 18 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

These muffins are a nice tasty treat and I find they taste better after they have cooled completely.  ENJOY!

Valentine’s Day is here! This day of love is also associated with food for many years. Unfortunately Valentine’s Day treats are usually very high in calories since it includes chocolate, candy, ice cream, champagne and fancy dinners. The average consumer spends $122 in candy, chocolate and other gifts during Valentine’s Day! That is a lot of cash for unhealthy and high calorie food.
