Flax Muffins

October 2, 2017

These muffins make a super delicious snack or breakfast.  Kid Friendly and Gerry approved. 
 
Add on some fruit, yogurt, or cottage cheese and you’ve got a super fast breakfast.  These muffins have way more nutritional value than most, less sugar, and more protein.  So you can have one without the guilt.  Enjoy!  The combinations are endless!
 

Pumpkin Cranberry Muffin
2/3 C Flax meal

1/3 C Almond meal

¼ C Protein powder

1.5 tsp Baking Powder

2 tsp Cinnamon

Salt to taste

1/4 C olive oil or butter or coconut oil

2 eggs (1 egg will suffice, but 2 eggs holds together just a bit better)

½ C pumpkin puree

6 dates (must be pureed with the pumpkin)

½ Cup dried cranberries (I usually soak mine in hot water for about 10 minutes)

1/4 pumpkin seeds

 

About 200 calories each

10g Protein

18g Carbs

11g Fat

 

Directions
Pre-heat oven to 350 Degrees

Set up 6-8 muffin papers in your muffin tin.

Mix dry ingredients together well.

Gently beat eggs together before adding.

-If you are making the pumpkin muffins, puree the dates and pumpkin together.

Then add your fruit and/or nuts.

When you mix the batter, try not to over do it.  Just incorporate everything.  It should be pretty thick.

Pour into your muffin papers and bake for about for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Toothpick or butter knife should could out clean.  I think they come out of. the wrappers easier if you let them cool.
