Below is a recipe right off the back of the Bob’s Red Mill flaxseed Meal package.
I loving call these fiber muffins, “Power Bars.” They’re great to have after surgery—when all the medication has thrown you off. I make them without baking powder (I never use it) or nuts, and freeze them. I take one out the night before I know I’ll have it. They are super moist, and effective. . .
I’ve only had one person look at me cockeyed when I enthusiastically offered, “Want a fiber muffin?” Everyone else has loved these.
