Default A Challenge To Bakers : Help me upgrade this recipe : PumpkinFlax Muffins


I found the recipe below on the web, freely available, so there should
be no copyright issues.

I would like to modify it such that

- each muffin gets at least 2 table spoons of ground flax seed.

- some, most, or all of the wheat flour is replaced by TEFF flour
( to boost the calcium content).

- replace the sucanant with stevia

- replace the wheat bran and wheat germ with something else

- if practical, replace the soy milk with something else vegan.

I'm not a baker so I don't know which ingredients/amounts I need
to keep to make the muffins work.

Any ideas? Thoughts?

Feel up for a culinary development challenge?
