Chelsie Kenyon, About's Guide to Mexican Food, brings us this special low-carb muffin, which is high in both nutrition and flavor, with lots of fiber too! Chelsie says, "These makes a great breakfast, or even a dessert." She also assures me that the three tablespoons of cinnamon is not a typo and adds, "Did you know cinnamon is great for diabetics and low-carbers because it stabilizes blood sugar?" Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes

Recipe Ingredients for Chelsie's Cinnamon Cranberry Flax Muffins

1 cup cranberries, whole fresh
1 1/4 cup flax seed meal (can easily grind your own)
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup splenda no calorie (if powdered, dissolve in 1/2 cup water)
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tablespoons grated orange peel

3/4 cup pecans, chopped

Recipe Directions for Chelsie's Cinnamon Cranberry Flax Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. Liberally butter muffin tins. Makes anywhere from 12 to 24 muffins. Do not use paper muffin liners - they will stick.

  5. 3. Let mixture stand for 10 minutes to thicken.

  6. 4. Fold in cranberries.

  7. 5. Fill each muffin cup about half way, and sprinkle with nuts.

  9. Keep up to a week in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer.
