Mike's power muffins

We are trying to lower our cholesterol. That means an improvement in our diet. Mike has been making these muffins, he calls them "power muffins", and eating 2 every morning for breakfast. I have been eating 1 because I am afraid of what my stomach would feel like after 2. He doesn't use a recipe but some of the ingredients that he incorporates are: bananas, raisins, oat flour, oat bran, flax seed, spelt, wheat germ,  agave or stevia, sweet potatoes or carrots, apple, applesauce and spices. I like to have a spoon of organic, natural peanut butter and a tall glass of skim milk with mine. They are packed with fiber and are very delicious. In a couple of months, maybe we will see some results...lower cholesterol.

Dude!! It may not lower your cholesterol, but I don't imagine regularity will be a whole lot of a problem for y'all.

I read the list of incorporated ingredients to Beeler and we were both like, "those are some serious muffins!"

Dear Pam,
This is Mike's comment: (and I quote) "It is not the amount of calories you take in, it is the amount you get out, and how quickly they get out". I thought you would like to know!

They do sound like they would taste very good and be nutritious too. Good luck with lowering your cholesterol. I hope it works for you.
