Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I love these. I can't do flax seeds so I used sunflower seeds. I also made 16 muffins rather than 12 so the calories are only 103.

I'll be making these again. Thanks Chef Meg!

I left out the salt and used 2% milk to reduce the sodium, carbs, sugar, and what small amount of fat that they differ. These are the best breakfast muffins I have ever had! Submitted by:

I used the Splenda brown sugar and added more berries. I liked using the buttermilk for a different taste, my family loved this! Submitted by:

I made 2 separate batches and used less brown sugar and less salt in the 2nd batch; we liked them better less sweet and salty. Also used frozen blueberries--dust them with a bit of flour before folding them in so they don't sink to the bottom. Really great, filling and will make again! Baked 18 min. Submitted by:

DELICIOUS! I made a couple modifications though: I used frozen mixed berries, but probably should've added less buttermilk cuz' I had to bake them an extra 5 minutes. Also I added a little cinnamon sugar to the flax :oP numnumnum! Submitted by:

I have used premix muffin mix and added the berries (fresh or frozen) and have found similar results with the low calories and high fibre!! Enjoy no matter which way you make them!! Submitted by:

I didn't love these muffins. They seemed very dense to me. I made them with bluberries. I used egg whites, and I did use lowfat buttermilk. Not my favorite muffin overall. Probably won't make again. Submitted by:

DELICIOUS!! I didn't have buttermilk, so like others I made my own with skim milk and white vinegar. Terrific with strawberries, but a great base for other berries. The second batch I made I substituted original Splenda for the brown sugar and they turned out just as great. Definitely a keeper! Submitted by:

How can this recipe be "healthy" when the carbs more than outweigh the fiber and protein? Submitted by:

I make these regularly. I like them especially with blueberries. I make them as is except that I use only 1/2 cup of brown sugar in the muffins. Then I use 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar and 2 T of ground flax as a streusal for the top instead of just 1 T ground flax. We love them! Submitted by:

These muffins a pretty good but they really taste like healthy muffins. The next batch I made I added a little more brown sugar and strawberries. Submitted by:

Very good and easy to make. If you want to lower the sugar then you'd have to use splenda. Sugar content is still about 4 tsp per muffin. My muffin tins must have been a little small I got 15 muffins. I also used "sour milk" since I didn't have buttermilk on hand. I also made mine with blue berries. Submitted by:

Very good & moist. I didn't have buttermilk, so made my own with skim milk & white vinegar. I cut the salt in half, and added more strawberries. I baked mine about 25 minutes. Will definitely make again, and try other fruits in them. Yum !! Submitted by:

These are very tasty, even after freezing. Is the sodium content correct? It seems high for an otherwise healthy recipe. Submitted by:

I like the idea of less fat but I cannot stand apple sauce - is there a substitute I could try instead?

Still getting used to the healthy type of muffins, but I did like these. Added a little more strawberries. Maybe next time I will add a .5 cup of pecans and a little bit more brown sugar. Submitted by:

Delicious! Made mine with double the fruit (strawberries and blackberries) and will definitely make them again. My dad loved being able to eat something sweet without having to worry about sugar intake. Submitted by:
