Ingredients

    2 cups flax seeds - ground into meal
    5 whole eggs - separate yolks from whites
    5 Tbsp Olive Oil
    1 Tbsp Baking Soda
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 cup water
    3 packets Stevia or Truvia

Tips

You can add any dried fruit or nut that you like. You can substitute honey for the stevia, just mix honey with the egg yolk mixture.


Directions

Grind flaxseed using food processor or coffee grinder. Add baking soda, stevia, and salt and whisk to combine dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, mix egg yolks, olive oil, and water. Add to flax mixture.

In another bowl whisk or beat egg whites to soft peaks. Gently fold egg whites into flax mixture - 1/3 at a time to keep the batter light and fluffy.

Spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Fill each cup half to two-thirds full (you will use all the mixture).

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes; until a toothpick comes out clean.


Cool muffins on baking rack. Store muffins in the refrigerator for up to one week or freeze in a Ziplock for up to one month.
