I just have a question. The recipe calls for 1 egg but the directions say that mixing the flaxseed with water acts as an egg substitute. So if an egg is an ingredient, why does the recipe need an egg substitute? - 11/13/12

That's an optional change. I believe the recipe was calculated with the real egg, and the flax was mixed into the dry ingredients.
These were good, but not as muffins. I think they are more like baked oatmeal. They make a nice on-the-go breakfast that is better for you than just muffins. I'm not sure yet if I will make them again. By the way, the above picture is not at all what mine looked like and I followed the recipe. - 5/10/13
The chocolate chips in the recipe satisfied the craving that I have had for chocolate every day. It was very gooey and did not come out of the pan cleanly. Still, very good. Best eaten warm. Just had one cold and it was not as tasty. And 14 servings? Really? Who has a 14 cup muffin tin? - 3/11/14
I saw that the egg was calculated in so made it with both on Monday.
I thought these were good, but I'm not crazy about bananas, so I will be playing around and making other flavors after Thanksgiving. banana nut (for my daughter), zucchini, and apple cinnamon! - 11/17/12
