Golden Grain Muffins

Quick And Healthful Breakfast Ideas


(NAPSA) - If you're looking for simple ways to add a burst of nutrition to your family's breakfasts, it could pay to get the facts on flax.


Flax is an oil-rich seed brimming with healthful omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and protein. Research to date indicates that approximately 1 to 2 tablespoons of milled or ground flaxseed daily may provide adequate supplementation of omega-3's. You can buy whole flaxseed-which has a nutty flavor when roasted-in stores and then use a coffee grinder or food processor at home to grind the seed and help release its nutritional value. From there, flax can be sprinkled into orange juice, on cereal or spread with peanut butter to provide a quick nutritional boost. It's also great for baking.


For instance, muffins made with flaxseed can be served warm immediately after baking for a family weekend meal, or cooled and stored in the freezer and then thawed in the microwave for a healthful breakfast on the go.


Try these satisfying Golden Grain Muffins, full of whole grains, fiber and sweet dried fruit.
