Default flax muffins

[CENTER]These muffins sound great but i'm not a fan of Splenda. Can Stavia be used instead?

Talking yummy yummy yummy!

Ok THANK YOU so much Spirit for posting this recipe so very long ago and especially THANK YOU to those of you that have taken the time to post your results on trying the recipe. We really really must keep doing this! This is how people find out which recipes really work and which don't. I made this recipe tis morning due only to the rave reviews on this site. Even as I was making it, I kept thinking - I am not going to like this, it smells funny, the batter tastes funny, etc. Ok I know you are thinking what a baby ! But I kept on because of you dear people who had gone before! I only had flax seed, not meal, but I ground the seeds up in the blender, I used half the spenda called for, and added some davinci almond sryup, my muffin tin was missing so I put it in the small round cake pan, and put it in the oven. Again I felt confident to make these changes due to those who had posted their previous success. Well 15 mins later the timer beeped, I got out the pan, the top was golden brown and shiny. Still dubious, I cut it into 8 slices and put on some (real) butter and sat down to try it. WOW, it was great! Really, really good. It tasted some what nutty and good. I sprinkled a tiny bit of splenda on top of the melted butter and ummmm even better. Thanks again for this recipe, I am sure I will be making it over and over again.

Default best fla muffins in the world

Hello,
Well I tried these as soon as I got of the forum.....they are fantastic.
I didn't have any flax seed meal so I used wheat bran. Also used SF
Davinci vanilla syrup instead of splenda. My husband even loved them. Oh yeah and I used chocolate designer protein powder. They were nice and sweet and I almost think I will cut my syrup in half next time. I loved the texture and the fact that they weren't flat like most lc baked items. thankyou thankyou thankyou

ok question...I tried these and they came out dry.
is it 1/2 stick of butter as in 1/4 cup? or 1/2 stick as in 1/2 cup? maybe this was my mistake...they had a good taste just dry not sure what happened... thanks

This recipe is the reason i joined this board.
I doubled the recipe and threw in a handful of chopped pecans and my husband and I love them.
He's not LC BUT he gave up the white stuff so I asked him if he would try one of these and he asked for me to put some in his lunches, he drives a truck all day and has them for a 3 pm. slump snack.
Thanks so much for posting these and I am going to try putting some pumpkin in these for him,
Sliver

Default Flaxmeal

I purchase my flaxmeal at a super Walmart Bamalady74. It is in with all the vitamins. I have also purchased whole flax seeds in my health food store.
Hope this helps.

I'm trying 4 variations on this tonight.

Var 1
1/2 cup almond DaVinci
1/4 cup carb countdown skim milk
1/4 cup smart balance light melted
1 egg
splash of vanilla extract
1.5 tbsp safflower oil
1/2 cup flax meal
1 cup wheat bran
3/4 cup designer whey vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder


Var 2
1/2 cup spice blend DaVinci
1/4 cup smart balance light melted
1/4 cup cc skim milk
1.5 tbsp safflower oil
1 egg
1 cup pure pumpkin puree
splash of vanilla extract
3/4 cup designer whey vanilla
1 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup flax meal
1 tsp cinnimon
1/2 tsp baking powder

var 3
2 egg
1/4 cup smart balance light melted
1/2 cup coconut DaVincci
1/4 cup coconut cream melted
splash of vanilla extract (coconut or pinapple may work too)
1.5 tbsp safflower oil
1/2 cup flax meal
1 cup wheat bran
1 cup unsweetened coconut, fine shred
3/4 cup designer whey vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder

var 3
1 egg
1/2 cup peanut butter DaVincci
1/4 cup smart balance light melted
1/4 cup sour cream
splash vanilla extract
1.5 tbsp safflower oil
3/4 cup chocolate designer whey
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup flax meal
1 cup wheat bran
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup natural peanut butter creamy

I had to cook all of these a little longer then the sugegsted time. This also could be because I have a really crappy campus issue stove. All of them came out gooey still, but firmed up after sitting a bit and cooling. I think overall the coconut ones turned out the best. The chocolate ones were a little dry.

I mixed some softened cream cheese and Polaner SF blackberry preserves. It's sweetened with Splenda. Was a great topper

Well, I have to put in my 2 cents. I'm very happy I found this recipe. These muffins are pretty good. I made it with Designer whey french vanilla and I left out the splenda. They are pretty tastey, hot with butter. Yum

Thanks for the terrific recipe. I plugged it all into fitday, it's crazy how gret these are. Here's to regularity!

These muffins are great.
I used Whey Protein Powder in mine and used 1/4 cup splenda and 1/4 cup sugar twin. It was too sweet, so I think I will try 1/8 of a cup of each sugar substitute next time. I also stuck in 2 blueberries into each muffin tin before baking. UMMMMM good.
I did have one strange thing happen though. The muffins peaked really high in the middle. They looked like sombrero's. Not sure if I overmixed them or maybe put too much baking powder in them. Kids thoughs they were really funny looking.

Made these yesterday, and they were wonderful

I used the DaVinci vanilla syrup instead of Splenda, and I'm going to use the caramel syrup in my next batch
