honey nut flax muffins
its been a while again. some family things have popped up affecting my kitchen time as well as thanksgiving and traveling...blah, blah, blah. we also lost our cable to load pics onto the computer....a food blog without pictures is a little boring if you ask me. but i'm back and armed with a fistful of holiday recipes just in time for the impending doom of christmas.
these little muffins really pack a fiber filled punch...probably a good snack after that carb filled thanksgiving meal. flax seed oil adds extra umph and the mixture of raw green pumpkin seeds, walnuts and cranberries make it all the better. the original recipe comes from cookinglight but it wouldn't be right if i didn't mess with it!
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached white whole wheat flour (kings arthur is the best!)
1/4 cup organic flaxseed meal
1/3 cup organic natural brown sugar
1 1/4 tsp aluminum-free baking soda
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp mace
pinch of nutmeg
1 cup organic buttermilk
2 tbl organic flaxseed oil
2 lg organic eggs
1/2 cup trail mix (i used raw green pumpkin seeds, cranberries, pecan pieces, pistachio pieces, walnut pieces)
preheat oven to 350F.
combine flour thru nutmeg and whisk together. make well in center.
combine buttermilk thru eggs and add to well in flour. stir until just mixed. fold in trail mix. pour into muffin tins and bake for 15 min.
remove and drizzle muffins with honey.
