Introduction

Loaded with good stuff: whole wheat, oat bran, flax, zucchini, carrots, apple, craisins, walnuts, and pecans! Loaded with good stuff: whole wheat, oat bran, flax, zucchini, carrots, apple, craisins, walnuts, and pecans!
Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup oat flour or old-fashioned oats
    1/2 cup oat bran
    2 Tbsp wheat germ
    1 tsp salt
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    2 egg whites
    2 bananas mashed
    1/2 cup applesauce
    1/2 cup ground flax seed
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    2 tsp double-strength vanilla
    2 cups grated zucchini
    1 cup grated carrot
    1/2 cup craisins (dried cranberries)
    1/4 cup chopped walnuts
    1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions

1. Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix well.
2. Combine the rest of the ingredients in another bowl.
3. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
4. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees (I use a stoneware muffin pan, so your times may vary). Makes 24 regular sized muffins.
5. These also freeze well. Just let them cool completely on a wire rack before placing in a freezer bag, and then freeze. To serve from frozen, first peel off the liner, then microwave until warm. Enjoy!
(Note: I use a large food processor to make the prep easy. You can grind oats into a coarse oat "flour" with the chopping blade. You can also core and process a gala apple in place of the applesauce. For the zucchini, carrots, and apple - first process with the shredding/grating blade, then with the chopping blade until finely chopped.)
