Muffins -- Flaxseed Spice
Recipe By : Judi, from "T. Barney"
Serving Size : 12 Preparation Time :0:20
Categories : Development Muffins
Nuts And Seeds Veggie Ovo-Lacto

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 Tablespoons melted butter
3 large eggs
1/4 Cup Whipping Cream 35%
1/2 Cup sweetener, Splenda bulk
1 Tablespoon flavoring, maple
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 Teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 Teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 Teaspoon baking powder
3/4 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Cup Flax Seed Meal
1/4 Cup soy flour, Bob's Red Mill
4 Ounces chopped walnuts -- optional

" There have been a few posts lately about 'yucky' lowcarb bread and muffins. The following recipe has a texture like 'real' bread or muffins. I don't know where I got the recipe originally but the credit goes to lowcarbers Fern and Kathy. "

Preheat oven to 375F.
Beat first 3 ingredients together, then add Splenda, maple and vanilla. Mix the cinnamon and remaining ingredients and add to above.
Put into 12 paper cupcake liners in a muffin tin, or panspray/oil, and bake for about 15-20 minutes.

(Can double the recipe, and get about 18-20 good size muffins, filling the muffin cups about 3/4 full. Can fill the muffin tins to the top and get about 9 larger muffins. These are really good and have lots of fiber. About 4 carbs per muffin but over 3 carbs fiber. Black walnuts, if you can get them, list 4 grams carbs but 2 grams fiber for the 4 oz....
Other flavorings to try: instead of maple flavor - use banana or pineapple. Unsweetened coconut also tastes great.
These freeze well.
Can also be made in the microwave. In a 1000 watt oven, 12 muffins take about 2 mins. and 10 seconds.)
