Molasses Muffins with Flax and Dates

October 5, 2010

As we transition into autumn, it is time to start preparing and eating more warm and nourishing foods.  Everybody needs to eat breakfast, and starting with wholesome grains is a good way to go.  Try spreading some ghee (clarified butter) on these delicious and healthy muffins.

Are you somebody who normally grabs a muffin on the run?  Often, convenient choices that we find on line at the local coffee shop are full of sugar, hidden calories, and processed ingredients that are difficult to digest.  The ingredients in this recipe offer a lot of nutritional value and will give you a good start to the day.  Try making a batch on Sunday night, and eating the muffins throughout the week.  You can freeze them too.  That’s convenient!

In Chinese Medicine, dates are said to nourish the blood and calm the spirit.  Additionally, flax is a good source of Omega 3 fatty acids and can be beneficial in lowering LDL (bad cholesterol), blood triglycerides, and blood pressure.
