These delicious muffins have a healthy dose of flax, chia and hemp hearts. All of which are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, the “good for you fat”! Plus they contain a ton of protein and fiber. Fiber being known to contribute to overall heart health! So now you can have your muffin, and eat it too! Yes, I know this is a muffin, and not cake. But isn’t a muffin essentially a miniature cake? Yup, I’m going with it.
