Whole Wheat Flax and Apple Muffins

 
I few weeks ago a tried a new recipe for these whole wheat and apple muffins. They were very yummy and good for you too. My kids loved them! They make the perfect breakfast muffin.
Ingredients:
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup white flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
(I added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon)
1 egg, beaten
1 & 1/2 cups finely chopped apples
3 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped nuts(I used pecans)

Directions:
Combine dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix egg, oil, milk and sugar. Blend dry and wet ingredients together. Fold in apples and nuts. Fill greased muffin pans 2/3 full. Bake at 400 for 17-20 minutes.

I have been thinking about trying flaxseed for a while. Maybe this is my opportunity, they sounds great.

I bought it in the bulk section(way cheaper!)Then I ground it in my blender. The best way to grind it is in a coffee grinder, but I don't have one of those. The sweet potato bread I posted a few days ago has flax seed in it also. It doesn't change the taste(to me anyways)but it does add some nutritional value.
