    Heat oven to 400°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups, or grease (or use cooking spray) bottoms of muffin cups. (For best results, use paper cups.)
  • 2
    In medium bowl, stir muffin mix, flaxseed, cranberries, walnuts, water, oil and eggs just until blended (batter will be lumpy). Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (about 2/3 full).

Expert Tips

  • The best way to receive the most benefits from flax is to grind the seed with a coffee grinder. Once the flax has been ground, it should be kept in the refrigerator or frozen.
