{Whole Wheat Flax Apple Muffins}

Life took an interesting turn last week.  I am not going to get into the details but lets just say I am glad that last week is behind me!  Let's instead focus on positive things!  Like how Derek and I are getting married in just 23 days (HOLY COW), or how I got to spend a long weekend up on the North Shore with my mom just relaxing, oh and I think we also need to focus on how delicious these muffins are!   Because they are really really good!

These little guys are the perfect grab and go breakfast or afternoon snack.  They are packed full of fiber from the whole wheat flour and ground flax seeds give them a good nutritional punch!  They get their sweetness from a grated apple and honey!  No refined sugar here!  I like to have one as an afternoon snack with some almond butter and a hot cup of tea!  Delicious!  Make up a batch on Sunday and eat through the week or whip them up Saturday morning as part of your brunch spread!
