Ingredients

  • 1 cup ground golden flax seed or buy flax meal already ground
  • 4 pastured eggs
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil or any oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated sweetener (maple sugar erythritol, lakanto, coconut sugar)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup walnuts chopped (okay to omit)

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 325*F.
  2. If starting with whole golden flax seed, grind it in a coffee grinder, then measure 1 cup.
  3. Note: I like using golden flax seeds as I find the taste to be more mellow compared to dark brown flax seeds, but any color flax seed will work.
  4. Mix ingredients together in a mixing bowl in the order they are listed. You can use an electric mixer if you'd like, but be sure to add in walnuts last, after using a mixer.
  5. Bake at 325*F for 18 to 22 minutes. I recommend using muffin liners to prevent sticking, plus they make the muffins more "portable".
