I made these nearly according to the instructions (I omitted the cinnamon and did not use any white sugar, I believe I used agave nectar), and they came out dense and a bit chewy. At first I wasn't sure why, but a few baking experiments (I bake a lot) helped me figure it out. Flax seeds, ground, are an egg replacement. They work wonderfully, but not understanding their properties and using too much is going to result in this heavier texture. I recommend omitting the egg, and reducing the flax seeds to about 1 tbsp. (with 3 tbsp. water). Make up about 3/4 cup with either whole wheat (finely ground) or whole spelt flour. This should produce a lighter, fluffier muffin that is still healthy. I am going to try to work with this recipe some more to see what I can come up with. It's a good start, just misunderstands some ingredients.
