Flax, cranberries and walnuts give delicious muffins a boost of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.
Updated Aug 21, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1 box (15.3 oz) Betty Crocker™ Fiber One™ apple cinnamon muffin mix
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed or flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs

Steps

  • 1
    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).
  • 3
    Bake 17 to 21 minutes or until golden brown and tops spring back when touched. Cool 5 minutes; carefully remove from pan (if not using paper cups, run knife around edges of cups before removing). Cool completely before storing.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
