A breakfast muffin baked with flaxseed and almond flour is a healthy start to the day. Flavoured with cinnamon and nutmeg they are packed full of flavour too.
If you want to start your day eating cake, they enjoy a breakfast muffin. These flaxseed muffins are a great way to include flaxseed into your day too. The Chief Taster is not a great lover of flax but still requests these breakfast muffins as an alternative to eggs for breakfast. I think it's the cinnamon and spicy taste though.
The texture of these flaxseed muffins are almost wholemeal but with a nice spicy flavour of cinnamon and nutmeg. I use a lot of spice in this recipe, but feel free to change it to your own taste. Yes, that is a tablespoon of cinnamon. It's not a typo!
I like to add chopped nuts to these breakfast muffins too. The last batch I baked had chopped pecans and were delicious. Walnuts would be great too. Or perhaps a mix of nuts?
If you are looking for a breakfast muffin but are not a fan of flaxseed there are many coconut flour recipes with great muffins for a healthy low carb start to the day.
