Bran Flax Muffins…They Taste Better Than They Sound!

Are you looking for a quick, on-the-go, and fiber rich breakfast option? How about something that tastes different than your typical cereal, oatmeal, or granola bar options? Definitely check this recipe out. I happened to stumble upon this recipe while pouring my usual tablespoon of ground flax seed into my fruit smoothie…it was the recipe on the back of the flax seed bag! I already had most of the ingredients in my pantry, so I decided to try it out one weekend. These muffins are hearty and healthy for you, and can be used as a great breakfast or snack. I put a little extra cinnamon in mine, to make them taste a little sweeter without the extra sugar or calories.
