The key ingredient to these muffins are the golden flaxseeds.

Golden Flaxseeds

First off, flaxseeds are a great source of fiber. Fiber is the part of plants that is not digestible. Fiber offers a variety of health benefits. Additionally, when flaxseeds are combined with liquid they form a gel-like texture, which is sometimes called a “flax egg.” Flax eggs serve a similar purpose as eggs in baking- they help form the batter and hold it together. In this recipe, once all of the ingredients are mixed it is placed in the fridge for 20 minutes. This enables the flaxseeds to form into flax eggs and help hold the batter together.
