Recipe: Cinnamon Maple Mini Muffins (with flax and whey)

Always on the lookout for delicious things to make with whey from straining my yogurt, I found this recipe at King Arthur Flour and modified it to make these delicious little guys.  I also used some of my new Maple Flav-r-bites from King Arthur Flour, but you could use a little maple syrup if you wanted.  The flav-r-bites are really nice because they kind of dissolve and leave wonderful little maple pockets.  (King Arthur Flour also has some cinnamon flav-r-bites that I have used in the past).  To add a little extra something to these mini muffins, I also used some Cinnamon Mini Baking chips.  Mmmmm.

If you don't have any whey, you could use milk.
This is some whey.

I also used some of my beveri flax seed (nearly ready for the review!  Just a couple more recipes so I can have an informed review)
