Flax Apple Muffins / Eggless Flax N Apple Muffins / Eggless Apple Flax Muffins

For This week's Love2Bake event, I am sharing a low calorie, low fat, fiber rich, egg free and butter free Flax Apple Muffins. I got this recipe from the Milled Flax seeds' box. The actual Flax Apple Muffins recipe is with egg but I tried it as Eggless muffins by adding banana puree. To my surprise the muffins turned out so good, soft and aromatic. These muffins are perfect for breakfast with some milk and fruits or a perfect after school snack for kids. My kids loved these muffins a lot and the muffins vanished in one day itself.

Preparation Time : 10 minutes
Cooking Time : 20 minutes
Makes 12 muffins

  2. All Purpose Flour   3/4 cup
  3. Milled Flax Seeds    1/4 cup

  5. Baking Powder   2 tsp
  6. Baking Soda   1/2 tsp
  7. Ground Cinnamon   1/4 tsp(optional)

  12. Chopped Nuts   1/2 cup (i used almonds and walnuts)
  13. Apples    2 no.s or 1 and 1/2 cup(finely chopped or grated)
  • In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients-flours, milled flax seeds, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and keep aside.

Flax Apple Muffins
I used only 1/4 cup of sugar but the original recipes calls for 1/2 cup of sugar. The sweetness from apple and 1/4 cup sugar was mild and perfect to us.
You can also use regular granulated sugar if you don't have brown sugar.
I used Organic Gala Apples. I chopped one apple and grated the other one.
*Egg -  You can use 1 egg or 3-4 tbsp of banana puree or applesauce.
I used banana puree, just smashed 1/2 of a ripe banana and used in the recipe.
I used Hodgson Milled Flax seeds, if you don't have it in hand, simply pulse the flax seeds for few seconds and use it.
