    Can you use Flax meal in the skinny muffin recipe instead of ground flax seed?

    I make these by cooking them in my toaster oven, about 375• for 20 minutes (or when they feel firm to the touch on the top). Put a paper muffin cup inside the mug for easy cleaning. Sometimes I add an extra egg white and?/or a tablespoon of whey protein power and add 2 tablespoons of water when adding the whey powder.

    The ground flax replaces flour? What is the texture of these muffins like? Interested to try them!
