Vegan apple muffins - rich in omega 3

Apples are season in now so I baked apple muffins. This muffins are not only yummy but also rich in omega 3! Fantastic way to take omega 3!

What is omega 3 so good about?

I am sure everyone heard about DHA that is good for brain. DHA is one of primary example of omega 3 acid. 

Fish, especially salmon  contains omega 3, that is why salmon is treated as super foods quite often. 

Not only fish but also plants contains omega 3. Flaxseeds and walnuts are one of the best source of omega 3 acid! 

So I bake muffins that has flaxseeds and walnuts :)
