Yummy Berry Muffins – Whole Wheat Flour & Flax Seed recipe

Okay -don’t run yet.  I swear, these are amazing.  Not only do they taste fabulous, you can eat them with a reduced amount of guilt, because they contain a bunch of good-for-you stuff too.

I’ve messed around and adapted this recipe a lot.  Here’s the deal…I dont keep buttermilk and brown sugar in the house, because it inevitably goes bad.  This recipe contains only a couple weird ingredients, but they’re not hard to find.  I got all of mine at Super Walmart.
