Recipe #3: Muffins or Quick Bread

*Makes 24 medium muffins, or BAKE in small loaf pans, 3" x 7" approx., or as wish, for 35-40 minutes at 375oF.

  • 4 cups All-purpose flour or sub. 2 cups whole wheat or cake flour for 2 cups of all-purpose, if wish, reduces and increases muffin volume, resp.
  • 2 cups Ground flax seed**
  • tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp each Baking soda and baking powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 4 Egg whites or 2 eggs, "flax eggs" if available
  • Grated peel from two lemons, save lemons for juice, remove seeds
  • cup Sugar, honey or molasses, or combination.
  • Add 1 cup Applesauce or ripe banana to wet ingredients, and add cup flour to compensate, if desired.
  • 1 cups Raisins or chopped prunes or dates added to liquid ingredients or best are chopped date pieces, or frozen blueberries, added last so they don't "bleed", folded in carefully
  • 2 cups Lemon juice and add buttermilk to make 2 cups liquid or slightly more for desired consistency.

**One cup of ground flaxseed weighs approximately 120 grams; if 24 muffins are made from this recipe, containing 240 grams of flaxseed, each would contain about 10 gms of flax (35% fiber) or three/day should be consumed for a 30 gm "dose." (Ground flaxseed can be calculated to 30 gm/day, cup, "dose" or as desired up to 50 gm/day.)

MUFFINS: Use medium size, Teflon pans, sprayed lightly with PAM; don't use paper liners, dough sticks; beat eggs (whites) and sugar before adding lemon juice and buttermilk to liquid ingredients; avoid over mixing; stir or mix dry ingredients into liquid ingredients just enough to dampen dry ingredients, leaving batter slightly rough and lumpy; mix additives like dry fruit into liquids, just before adding dry ingredients.
