Moist, packed with nutrition, these guilt free

muffins make for good brunch too.

Thanks to Kristin Rosenau’s recipe at her blog Pastry Affair. I followed her recipe to a ‘T’, except used instant coffee and cocoa powder in place of espresso powder, and added some chopped walnuts. I also had to use about 2 tbsp. more milk to moisten the batter.

Coat a muffin pan with cooking spray.

In a bowl, whisk together flour, flax seeds, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.

Add oil, egg, and milk stirring just until moist.

Gently stir in chocolate chunks, walnut pieces.

Fill each muffin cup with ¼ batter.
