cranberry orange banana nut flaxseed muffin

Submitted by: LADYCANUK

Introduction

Don't let the fat/calories scare you, they are mostly from the Omega 3 packed flaxseed and walnuts. With 4 gr of fibre and 5 gr of Protein - this is a breakfast-worthy muffin.

Recipe can be made without the cranberries/walnuts - I just had some leftover home-made cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving and added it to the wet batter, that prompted the orange zest/juice - and the result was very yummy!
