1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup ground flax seed (golden or brown)
3/4 cup oat bran
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3/4 cup skim milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups carrots, shredded
2 apples, shredded
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
2.) In a small bowl, mix dry ingredients (except brown sugar). Whisk wet ingredients and sugar in a large bowl.
3.) Grate apples and carrots (It's great to have a food processer for this) and pile them in a third bowl with raisins and nuts.
4.) Add dry on top of wet ingredients, stir just a little bit and then fold in the fruit and nuts. Fill muffin cups as much as you want - these rise nice and vertically (as opposed to some that tend to expand horizontally and squash into all the other muffins!) so you can fill them to overflowing if you want to.
5.) Bake at 350 F for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Enjoy!
