Muffins as a great tasting pre-workout snack? Got a hankerin’ for something made with pumpkin? Here’s a recipe to meet both those needs and guess what, they’re good for you too.
Why? Because they’re made with flaxseed, walnuts, and whole wheat flour, all nutritional powerhouses. Flaxseeds and walnuts are high in omega 3 fatty acids and whole wheat flour is an excellent source of B vitamins, magnesium, and fiber.
And guess what? Canned pumpkin is an excellent source of beta-carotene (powerful anti-oxidant). In fact, canned pumpkin has three times more beta-carotene than fresh pumpkin.
