These are easy to prepare, are low carb, moist and delicious. They'd pass for a cupcake with a little frosting, too. The secret is in the finely ground flax seed meal - either grind your own or give the commercially ground meal about ten extra seconds in your blade coffee/spice grinder or blender.Cook's note: if you want to increase the yield on these, add 1/2 cup milk: almond, rice, or soy. And add 1 1/2 cups of bran. When I'm not doing wheat-free, I use wheat bran, but oat bran will do. If you do go the bran route, add 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp plain vinegar to the recipe: these puppies will rise better if you do.(thanks for posting a picture, sweetcakes!)
