Omega-3 Muffins

These are great muffins.  Not too sweet and full of omega-3′s.

Dry Ingredients:

1 Tbsp ground chia seed
1 Tbsp ground flax
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cups english walnut pieces (optional)

Wet Ingredients:

2 Tbsp flax whisked in 6 Tbsp water (or equivalent egg replacer whisked in water)
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 cup agave syrup
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup dried fruit (cranberries, cherries, raisins)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients.  Add flax/water mixture or egg replacer/water mixture to wet ingredients.  Mix fully.  Add wet to dry ingredients, combine thoroughly but do not over mix.  Spoon into muffin molds (use parchment muffin papers or silicone bakeware) and bake for 25-30 minutes.  Cool and enjoy.
