There is less than 2 (non fiber) carbs per muffin and so your blood sugar will not spike when biting into this moist, delicious muffin.  This is an easily adaptable recipe.  You can experiment with different flavors or different combinations of flax and almond meal.  As this recipe stands, each muffin has 134 calories, 5 gm of protein, 11.2 gm of fat, only 1.2 gm of sugars and 2300 mg of omega-3.

Flax seed is good for overall health. In the book “Cholesterol Down: Ten Simple Steps to Lower Your Cholesterol in Four Weeks,” author Janet Brill notes that flax seed can help protect against breast, colon and prostate cancer and also can lower cholesterol. Nutrients such as B vitamins, which are an intricate part of energy production in the body, and vitamin E, which is connected to skin and hair health, are also prevalent in flax seed. Finally, flax seed has been linked to increased brain function due to the omega-3s present in the food.
