Ingredients  

Dry ingredients

1 cup Omega Grains
1 ¼ cups oat bran
½ cup flax seeds
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup dried Craisins
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cup walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped

Wet ingredients 

2 large eggs
1 cup orange juice
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 ºF (180 C). Place 12 paper liners in a muffin pan.

Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl. Whisk all the wet ingredients together in medium bowl.  Add the wet ingredient mixture to the large bowl of dry ingredients. Stir until mixture combines. Let the mixture stand for 20 minutes so that the Omega Grains absorbs the flavorful liquid ingredients. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin pan while filling each cup over the top.

Bake in oven for about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into centre of a muffin comes out clean. Let stand in pan for 10 minutes before removing.
