Apple Flaxseed Muffins Recipe

apple flaxseed muffins with other desserts

When my kids were growing up, I baked ALOT! We definitely had our share of sugary treats, probably a little too much. As a mom, I was always looking for new and healthy breakfast ideas.  I originally found a similar recipe on the back of a Hodgson Mill Ground Flax box and have since altered it to fit our tastes. Over time, you will begin to notice that these muffins are not just delicious in the morning, they are great as an afternoon snack. The benefits of this recipe include its simplicity, flexibility, nutrition, and taste (of course)!

Make sure you stay to the end to check out how to transform this recipe to bundt cake form with our popular Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting.

APPLE FLAXSEED BUNDT CAKE

We primarily follow this recipe to bake delicious muffins, but we’ve also enjoyed it in bundt form by utilizing a bundt pan. If you are interested in transforming this recipe into an Apple Flaxseed Bundt Cake, you will need to make a couple adjustments:

  1. Double the ingredients
  2. Lengthen the baking time to ~ 60 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the cake. When it comes out clean, it is ready to pull out of oven.

This bundt cake is delicious “as is,” but you can take the sweetness up a notch by adding our Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting!

    Use honey crisp or pink lady apples and don’t forget to grease the muffin cups
