Ingredients

    1 C. Ground Flax Seed
    1 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
    1/2 C. Oat Bran (or ground oats)
    1/4 C. Brown Sugar
    1/2 C. Raw Sugar
    2 tsp. Baking Soda
    1 tsp Baking Powder
    3/4 tsp salt
    2 tbsp. Cinnamon
    1 C. Carrots, Shredded Finely
    3 Apples, Peeled, Cored, and Shredded
    1/3 C. Craisins
    1/3 C. Raisins
    3/4 C. 1 % milk
    2 Eggs, beaten
    1 tsp. Vanilla Extract (not flavoring)
    Cooking Spray for Muffin Tins

Directions

* Mix flax seed, flours, bran, sugars, and other dry ingredients together.
* Shred carrots and apples and add these along with dry fruits to dry ingredients. Mix well.
* Stir together milk eggs and vanilla and stir this into batter until well moistened.
* Use cooking spray to lightly spray bottoms of muffin tins
and bake at 350* for 18 - 22 minutes. I like to lightly sprinkle a little oatmeal on top to make muffins pretty, but this is optional.
* Cook until set through muffin, do not brown as you do most muffins.
(Note: My muffin tins are slightly smaller than a regular muffin, and I end up making 27 small muffins. If you are using a regular size muffin tin, you will get 24 muffins, and will need to bake an extra 2 minutes.)
* These muffins freeze well.

Makes 24 - 27 muffins.
