Are you looking for a new recipe to make this weekend? This easy Bran Flax Muffins Recipe is perfect for moms with picky eaters. The kids will love them!
This recipe makes 12 muffins, so it’s perfect if you want to freeze some too. Keep in mind that these are gluten free and vegan, so they’re also dairy-free. These muffins are made without eggs or butter which means they can be enjoyed by everyone at the table. They’re delicious warm out of the oven, but I like mine cold as well because then I can pack one into my lunch box!
