  • 2 cups ground flaxseeds
  • 1/3 cup honey or 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda omit if using brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup water room temperature *
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line muffin pan with paper liners or get out silicone baking pan if using. 
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flaxseeds, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  
  • Place eggs, water, oil, vanilla, and honey in a blender.  Blend on high speed for about 30 seconds.  Mixture should be whipped until slightly foamy. 
  • Now, mix wet ingredients into your dry ingredients with a spatula just until incorporated.  The batter will be a little fluffy. 
  • Place the batter in your muffin pan, filling each cup almost to the top.  About 90 percent.  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. 
  • Wait 2 minutes, then take muffins out of muffin pan and cool for 15 minutes on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
