Notes

So, my mom is a health freak. Actually, to be a bit more accurate, she is a fiber freak. You can pick up any food item and she can tell you the fiber content instantly, without even thinking about it. I modified this muffin recipe especially for her, so that each little bite is packed with fiber. I don't know how much yet, but I'm sure she'll let me know as soon as I email her this recipe!

mm these look great! i love healthy muffins!

Recipe looks great. I use free software (CRONoMeter) to track my diet and if you input the ingredients for these muffins and assume 12 muffins, then each one provides: Report generated by CRON-o-Meter =========================================== Total % Daily Allowance Energy | 204.2 kcal 16% Protein | 3.9 g 4% Carbs | 18.9 g 15% Fiber | 4.5 g 15% Fat | 14.0 g 37% Vitamins =========================================== Vitamin A | 260.3 IU 9% Folate | 23.2 µg 6% B1 (Thiamine) | 0.2 mg 16% B2 (Riboflavin) | 0.1 mg 6% B3 (Niacin) | 1.2 mg 7% B5 (Pantothenic Acid)| 0.3 mg 7% B6 (Pyridoxine) | 0.2 mg 14% B12 (Cyanocobalamin) | 0.0 µg 1% Vitamin C | 3.5 mg 4% Vitamin D | 5.3 IU 1% Vitamin E | 0.4 mg 3% Vitamin K | 1.5 µg 1% Minerals =========================================== Calcium | 58 mg 3% Copper | 0.2 mg 26% Iron | 1.0 mg 13% Magnesium | 59.8 mg 14% Manganese | 0.8 mg 36% Phosphorus | 144.2 mg 15% Potassium | 262.0 mg 6% Selenium | 9.6 µg 17% Sodium | 187.0 mg 5% Zinc | 0.8 mg 7% Lipids =========================================== Saturated | 5.4 g 27% Omega-3 | 2.1 g 130% Omega-6 | 2.6 g 18% Cholesterol | 20.1 mg 7%
