Ingredients

    1 3/4 cup of Ground Flax Seed
    1 cup of whole cranberries
    2 Eggs, 4 whites or 4 total eggs
    1/4 cup of olive oil
    1/4 cup of applesauce
    1/2 cup of brown sugar
    tsp. of baking powder
    3 tsp. of cinnamon
    1 tsp. of nutmeg
    1/2 tsp. of salt
    1 Tbl. vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons grated orange peel
    3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional for topping)


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Liberally butter muffin tins. Makes anywhere from 12 to 24 muffins. Do not use paper muffin liners - they will stick.

1. Pour boiling water over cranberries. Let sit for 5 minutes and pour off water.

2. Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients (minus the cranberries) separately, then mix them together.

3. Let mixture stand for 10 minutes to thicken.

4. Fold in cranberries.

5. Fill each muffin cup about half way, and sprinkle with nuts.

6. Bake about 15 minutes (a little longer if you're only making 12) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Keep up to a week in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer.

For 12 muffins: Each muffin has 2 grams effective carbohydrate plus 6 grams fiber and 6 grams protein.

Nutritional info is for 24 muffins.

    I used 1/4c Brown Sugar Splenda, no orange peel and made 12 muffins. I baked them for 25 mins. My calculations came to Calories: 184, Fat: 15, Carbs 10.5 Fiber: 6.8 Sugar: 2.8 Prot: 6.6. Will make these again. Very moist indeed. - 3/22/09

  • Doesn't have that gritty/slimy mouth feel that flax based goods typically do. Hearty like a bran muffin but moist & light at the same time. Used 1/2 cup Truvia Brown Sugar Blend, 1 heaping cup fresh cranberries & 1 tsp orange extract to really pump up the bright orange flavor. Definitely a keeper! - 12/5/16

  • I made these with a mix of blueberries/blackberries (we went out berry picking over this weekend), the flavor was good, it was a little spongy. I'm not sure how this could make 24 muffins though, the 12 I made were on the small side. - 9/13/09

  • These look wonderful - are the cranberries fresh or Craisins? Putting them in boiling water makes me think they are Craisins. I'll rate after trying. - 8/20/09
