TWD - Great Grains Muffins

So much of the country is getting pounded by "the storm of the century" today.  Alabama is one of the few states escaping the brunt of the storm.  It's currently raining and windy but a balmy 62 degrees.  We are supposed to get some colder air, but no snow or ice.  Thank you Mother Nature!

If I were to be snowed in these muffins would a perfect way to pass the time (since I would not have made it to the store in time to grab some bread and milk.....hypothetically speaking, of course).  I seriously thought about sitting this week out because I had just posted something similar a few days ago, but them I remembered I was on probation and decided I better get busy.  Good decision.  These are really, really good.  And relatively healthy.  No so low-cal, but the good-for-you calories, mostly.

I substituted 1/2 cup of milled flax for 1/2 cup of the white flour and added chopped, dried cranberries and pistachios.  Yummy.  Check out Christine's site Happy Tummy for the recipe and if you're in a part of the country getting pounded by this storm, stay safe and warm!!


  1. Oooh! Cranberries and pistachios sound amazing! You're lucky to be in Alabama -- I'm in NYC and we're just sitting here waiting for it!

  2. I love that you made the muffins with cranberries and pistchios--what a classic combo. Your muffins look fantastic. Thank you so much for baking with me this week! As I sit here looking out the window at the foot of snow dumped on my porch, I'm envious of your balmy weather :)

  3. They look great! I added some chocolate chips to mine..love them! I like this recipe cus you can pretty much tweek it to your liking! Stay warm!

  4. Hey-cool photo on your header! I love the idea of the flax. I have some that I put in granola, so will have more uses for it. Your muffins look great!
