Who hasn't grown up with the Nursery Rhyme "The Muffin Man"? It was my sister's favorite song when she was little. I sing it still whenever we see muffins!
UPDATE ALERT: I decided to make another batch, with a slight twist. To read about The Great Muffin Debacle, click green link. Let's just say, it was an experience.

Gather your ingredients and supplies, including two large bowls, a whisk, measuring spoons, measuring cups, muffin tin and a wooden spoon.
Mix your milled flax in water and stir well. Set aside to allow to thicken for 10 minutes. This replaces eggs as I'm allergic. Or you can use unsweetened applesauce. If you choose to, you can use one egg in place of the flax or applesauce, which will go later into the wet ingredients. (see above video)
Whisk together all dry ingredients. Set aside.
Mix together all wet ingredients including either the flax, applesauce or egg. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Stir gently with a wooden spoon. Do not over stir, it will make your muffins dense. (see video)
Add chocolate chips and gently fold into dough. Do not overmix. You want fluffy muffins, not dense muffins. (see video)
Coat your muffin tins with either cooking spray or a small amount of oil. Fill tins with dough almost to the top. The muffins do not rise very much. Place into a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 20 minutes, more if necessary. (see video)
Remove muffins from oven and allow to cool. When cool enough to handle, remove from tin and allow to cool completely on a cooking rack or dish or platter.
Of course, take a taste, you won't be able to resist. Muffins can be stored in a covered container, on a platter covered with tin foil and also frozen for future enjoyment.
