SO HOW'D IT GO?

Okay si I made these and they turnd ont so bad!!! :'( I did not have any Flax seed so I jsut did not out that in. Everything else was the same. They turned out really soft and goowy. I would have loved that but once I bit into it it tasted really bad and jsut not sweet at all. What does Flax seed do? Is it a oil replacer or something?

Flax is usually added for extra nutrition or beaten with water to serve as an egg replacer to bind. Here it seems it is added more for the former reason. One of the tricky things with this recipe is the lack of leavener. So try experimenting with a little baking powder and the textural issues might be resolved.

These were only OK.  I think they needed just a touch more sweetness, like more sugar added to the raw batter.

Very good muffins, I made these, although they came out a little weird I think I'm to blame. I added a little orange juice to give it a little fruity taste. Just make sure to crumble the walnuts really small.

Okay, upon deciding to make this recipe I found I didn't have ground flax, or banana, so i just halved the recipe and decided to leave those out. Bad idea. Because they didn't get done on the bottom at all. i had to flip them over in the muffin tin and rebake them just so the bottom wouldn't be goo. I thought using oatmeal and flour would hold them together, but that also didn't work. I am not going to rate this recipe because I really didn't follow it once I found out what I had on hand... I will try it as soon as I get some ground flax though...

i thought that i had zucchinis but i didn't!  so i improvised and used a cup of shredded carrot instead.  delish!  any sweeter and it'd be carrot cake, but it's nice and muffiny!  yum.
