  • I put in 2 eggs too, and used silicone muffin pans and they came out fine. Maybe I'll add some vanilla next time, or walnuts or (gasp) chocolate chips! - 12/15/09

  • Used multi-purpose gluten free flour and added some walnuts this time & used 2 eggs again. As I was making the recipe this time I noticed that the flax seed is not mentioned in the directions (something I had not noticed before) & I added it with the flour. - 10/4/07
