Don't these look like they're going to be deliciously tasty chocolate muffins???  Well, minus the pretty stiff texture of them before they even went into the oven....?

Not quite.  I found the recipe HERE and thought, wow, these are going to be so healthy and yummy!  Well...they were healthy...sort of.  And my husband will eat most anything, thankfully.  He says they "weren't that bad."  Even I who baked them begged to differ.  I will say I've baked other muffins from this recipe book that were very good, but this one was just a big fat flop!

These are a good way to implement some flaxseed into your diet...but I think I need to find another way!  Here are the ingredients that went into making the muffins:

1 8oz package of cream cheese (not so healthy, the first ingredient, go figure!)
2 egg whites
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup oat flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 ground flaxseed
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Because these didn't turn out well, and I'm giving you the link to the recipe, I'm not going to post the whole thing, just show you the process through pictures.

My parents gave us this for Christmas...a handmade egg separator--he's supposed to look like the boogers are coming out....cute, no?
After adding ALL of the dry ingredients...it was alot!
Before going into the oven...
After they came out of the oven...didn't change much, huh?


  1. this may be grosser than your egg seperater, but they look a little bit like something your dog might leave on the carpet! haha!

  2. lots of rough bran and/or granola based muffins can turn out with similar rough appearances. how fine were all the dry ingredients? ultimately though, while the flaxseed is healthy enough-the eggs may have been the only other real healthy ingredient. :)

    flaxseed can work on toast or oatmeal though-without too much baking. :)
