Healthy Alert! These Cinnamon Bun Flaxseed Muffins pack a hearty amount of nutritional goodness in every bite! They are low in sugar, so they don’t taste overly sweet.

Plus, they’re gluten-free! You can even make them Keto if you like!

If you’re in need of a little fiber in your diet….and let’s be real, who isn’t! Fiber has so many benefits besides keeping you regular like:

  1. Fiber slows the rate that sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream, which keeps your blood glucose levels from rising too fast. Awesome!
  2. It lowers cholesterol levels. Soluble fiber found in beans, oats, flaxseed and oat bran may help lower total blood cholesterol levels by lowering low-density lipoprotein, or “bad,” cholesterol levels. Good news!
  3. Aids in achieving a healthy weight. High-fiber foods tend to be a bit more filling than low-fiber processed foods, so you’re likely to eat less and stay satisfied longer. No empty calories here!

So yes, lots of benefits, but kids and grown-ups like these, so let’s get to the easy recipe!

How to make Flaxseed Muffins

This recipe makes 12 muffins, so if you want you can double the recipe and freeze some for later!

It’s always smart to cook/bake once and eat twice!

This Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookie recipe [3] is proof of that! It’s so nice to have a few waiting in the freezer for when a craving strikes!

Ok, back to the muffins! First, you need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, you can either get out your silicone baking pan as we like to do or line a muffin pan with paper liners.

In a large bowl, you need to combine your dry ingredients. Whisk your flaxseeds with the cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Next, it’s time to mix your wet ingredients. Place eggs, water, oil, vanilla, and honey in a blender. Blend on high speed for about 30 seconds. Your mixture should be whipped foamy.

Now, mix your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients with a spatula just until combined. The batter will be a little fluffy.

Place the batter in your muffin pan, filling each cup almost to the top. About 90 percent. I like to use a cookie scoop [4], which makes it way easy!

Now, bake for approximately 13-15 minutes. You can check by inserting a toothpick in the middle and if it comes out clean, they’re done.

Finally, take your muffins out of the pan and let cool on a cooling rack.

Now, it’s time to bite in!

How to Make Keto Flaxseed Muffins

As I mentioned, you can totally make this Keto-friendly, but using erythritol or stevia instead of the sugar or honey.

Simply add 1/3 cup erythritol to the dry ingredients or 3/4 teaspoon liquid stevia to the wet ingredients.

How to Freeze Flaxseed Muffins

It’s easy to freeze these muffins and get them out when ready to eat. Just, place baked muffins a freezer bag or airtight container, and keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Either microwave for a few seconds to defrost or place in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
