Pumpkin Raisin Flax Muffin Recipe

A Reader Recipe: Pumpkin Raisin Flax Muffins

Celebrate Fall with this fiber-filled pumpkin muffin recipe. FitSugar reader For the Love of Fiber posted this recipe in our Healthy Recipe group.

These little muffins are packed with B vitamins, omega-3s, fiber, and the goodness of coconut oil! In the Fall, when pumpkin is in season, I make a dozen on a Sunday and freeze them for a quick, on-the-go, and healthy breakfast all week. Just pull out the night before to thaw. Use organic ingredients when possible.

See the recipe after the break!
