Apple, Berry, Linseed and Oat Muffins

Gluten-free, high-fibre, dairy-free high protein breakfast muffins

Super Scrummy, Healthy Satisfying Muffins for Breakfast, Coffee Break, Tea or After exercise.

We are loving baking with Flax Farm Linseed (Flax) Porridge. It ticks all the boxes for healthy eating.  Tasty and really satisfying, good for the tummy, gluten-free, low carb, lots of good linseed fibre, fills you up more for longer.  Because linseed is such a great food we avoid adding naughty ingredients. We used xylitol here to make it suitable for a diabetic diet but feel free to use other sweeteners,

Choice of Ingredients

All our porridges mueslis are gluten-free. We use Linseed Porridge, but our Fruity Porridge, Super-Seedy and Special Gluten-Free Linseed & Buckwheat Porridge With Quinoa work really well too.  This muffin recipe is easily adaptable to no saturated fat, no nuts or meet the needs of other intolerances,

Why use Flax Farm Linseed Porridge instead of Wheat Flour or Gluten-free Flour?

  • Tastes great
  • More filling
  • Higher in fibre
  • Higher in protein
  • Better mineral content
  • Lots of omega-3
  • Kinder to sensitive digestions
  • Less fattening
  • Great texture
  • Good for the digestion
  • Lower carb
  • Low GI
  • Sugar-free
  • Rich in oat beta-glucan, good for cholesterol levels
  • Just natural whole grain/whole seed, nothing added, nothing taken away, no odd ingredients

Thank you Richard Ranson of for the recipe which we have adapted to use Linseed Porridge,
