Making and eating home-made baked goods for breakfast can be heart-warming and yummy, but can it also be heart healthy? Yes! I am always thinking of ways to cut out the cholesterol. By eliminating butter and eggs in these Heart Smart Carrot Muffins, I offer you a good basic recipe to which you can easily add your own twist.These nutritious muffins use yogurt and whole wheat flour to get their great texture. In addition to the yogurt, other ingredients include fats that will do your body some good -- olive oil and nuts! You can vary the recipe by using your favorite fruits, nuts, and even another vegetable. I used carrots because I had too many in my fridge, but note that they are also an excellent source of vitamin A and fiber. The walnuts I used are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, and those raisins are full of mineral rich anti-oxidants.
My Heart Smart Carrot Muffins are a guilt-free power breakfast, perfect with some fruit or a cup of tea!Submitted by MANONTHEMOON
