Golden Flax Muffins

Updated: Mar 16, 2021


You will love these muffins because they are simple to make and contain clean, nutritious ingredients. This is a versatile muffin that is perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack.


Many muffins, especially those purchased at a bakery or grocery store, are overly large in size, high in refined sugar, unhealthy fats and are basically a cupcake without the icing. This isn't always a bad thing, but when fuelling up for the day, the more nutritious, the better!


This recipe is packed with omega-3’s from the ground flax and is rich in monounsaturated fat from the almond flour which may help in reducing cholesterol.


These muffins will hit the spot with their subtle sweetness and nuttiness, leaving you feeling nourished and satisfied!
