The picture makes the post! Yummy.


This post was entertaining for our whole family. As soon as I saw the word "flaxseed" I smiled to myself. I knew I just had to share it with my mom. She has been trying to get me to eat flaxseed and oat bran.

Just this morning as I was fixing myself some Malto-meal before heading off to work, she suggested I add some flaxseed to it. I prefer not to have particles that appear to be "small beatles" floating in my porridge. However, this recipe sounds worth trying. :) Even my "ice-cream loving" dad thought it sounded good! We will have to give it a try. Maybe I will make some tomorrow on my day off. I'll let you know what the family thinks. Thanks for the recipe and update on how it turned out. :)

P.S. I'm so glad the Chris Klicka post blessed you. Maybe someday you will have the opportunity to hear him speak in person. He has such a tremendous testimony. Even with his canes and leg braces, you can see how it is the Lord who has sustained and strengthened him.


A whole orange in the blender? That is something different! Maybe we'll get a chance to try them sometime.
Thanks for the link to the butterscotch muffins! That was a pleasant surprise! :)


Lydia, I'm happy we can be a part of getting you to eat more flaxseed.:) The muffins certainly won't turn out reminding you of insects, if you use the ground version. We actually didn't notice any strong taste that stood out. I found another similar recipe that calls for a whole cup of flaxseed..hmmm, it would be interesting to compare the two.

Yes, Courtney, the orange in the blender was unique. It was like pouring a smoothie over the dry ingredients. You're welcome for the link. I didn't realize it was way back in October that you posted that!


Speaking of has a mild, nutty taste. I grind it and put it on cold cereal and hot cereal like oatmeal and cream of wheat. It is also great in quick breads like banana bread. The flavor is very mild and does not overpower other flavors. While reading about flaxseed, I found out that our body cannot take the nutrients it offers out of the whole seed...the seed needs to be broken. I'd love to try the muffin recipe myself!


That's quite a recipe. I'm glad you included the picture, they look good . Do you have a good recipe for the Cranberry Nut muffins you mentioned?


Hi, Lauren~ Go here to find the recipe I have used:

When I was looking on the taste of home site there were a few other similar cranberry muffin recipes that looked good,too. I would describe the ones I made as more dense and cakey.

Mrs. Horton, thanks for your input!


It is a good idea to put up a picture - I might have to do so myself if I post another recipe!
