“I love muffins, but a bakery muffin can have more than double the calories and fat of a homemade one. These muffins have flaxseed and fruit that I need to include in my diet. I bake them once a week, and keep them on hand.” Marilyn B.
A Note from Dr. B:
This muffin is a great heart-healthy choice for breakfast, because you get high fiber, Omega-3 and no cholesterol. Canola and olive oil are monounsaturated oils that can help improve your ratio of “protective” cholesterol to “harmful” cholesterol.
