1 c. grated Zucchini
1 diced Apple
1 1/2 c. Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1/4 c. ground Flax Seed
2 t. Baking Powder
1 t. Cinnamon
1/2 t. Salt
1 c. chopped Walnuts

In another bowl mix flour, flax seed, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

These muffins are moist and delicious!  The flax and walnuts provide omega-3s, while folate, beta-carotene, vitamin A and fiber are provided by the vegetables.  *Flax seeds are a great substitute for eggs in baked pastries.*
