These unique muffins are tasty and healthy. Garbanzo flour (also known as chickpea flour) is a good source of protein, and is gluten-free for those who have concerns about gluten in their diets. Ground flax seed is loaded with cancer-fighting lignans and provides vital omega 3 and important dietary fiber as well. I prefer “golden” flax seed, although the dark brown type is also excellent. I like to cut the finished muffins in half and grill them on a griddle or frying pan, then spread raw almond butter on them.
