Oh but I have learned to love Flax Seed muffins. They taste great and are rocket fuel for the bowels.

Thanks for the recipe, I will give it a try. Any thoughts on using Atkins baking mix instead?

By the way, those Splenda packets add about 10 carbs to the recipe, resulting in 3 carbs per. Still great though.

You could also use liquid splenda.

If the Splenda adds 10 carbs to the whole recipe and it makes 8 muffins wouldn't that be a gain of 1.25g per muffin instead of 3g per muffin ?

Sorry, I mean to a total of 3 (rounding up), not an additional 3. :)
