  • ground flaxseed ⅓ c (45 g)
  • dark brown sugar 1 c (200 g)
  • baking powder 2 tsp
  • baking soda ½ tsp
  • cinnamon ½ tsp

  • kefir or buttermilk 1.5 c (350 ml)

  • fresh blackberries* 6 oz (170 g)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Grease or line a tin for 12 muffins.
  2. Mix together the flour, flaxseed, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the kefir, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla extract until combined.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined.
  5. Gently fold in the blackberries.
  6. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Allow the muffins to sit in the tin for 10 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.


Measuring Flour: We highly recommend using a kitchen scale to measure flour. If measuring by volume, use the spoon and level method to avoid over-measuring. Use a spoon to lightly scoop flour into the measuring cup until it’s completely full. Then run the back of a knife over the cup to gently scrape off any excess.

Blackberries: To substitute frozen blackberries, do not thaw. Add to the batter directly from the freezer and increase the cooking time by several minutes if necessary.

Storing: Cover and store at room temperature for several days or keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.
