Honey and Toasted Pistachio Muffins

Honey and Toasted Pistachio Muffins

Each of these homemade muffins contains almost three grams of fiber. Flaxseed meal provides a nutty flavor, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. Look for it in health-food stores and large supermarkets; it's also available online (at www.bobsredmill.com).
