Introduction

These muffins are loaded with whole grains, fruits, and vegetables! This is a slightly different version of my Healthy Breakfast Muffins. This recipe made 32 regular sized muffins. Depending on how full you fill the muffin cups, I'd say you should get 28 - 32 muffins. Nutritional value is calculated on 30 servings (1 muffin = 1 serving).

Ingredients

    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup oat flour (old-fashioned oats ground in food processor)
    1/4 cup old fashioned oats (whole)
    1/2 cup oat bran
    1/4 cup wheat germ
    1/2 cup ground flax meal
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 tsp salt
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
    2 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    2 egg whites
    2 mashed bananas
    2/3 cup applesauce (or 1 fairly large gala apple, cored, grated, and finely chopped in food procesor)
    2 cups grated zucchini
    1 cup grated carrot
    1/2 cup blueberries
    1/4 cup craisins
    2 tsp double-strength vanilla

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Combine all wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
4. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Mix well.
5. Line muffin pan with liners and fill each cup almost to the top (these don't rise a terrific amount).
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes. I use a stoneware muffin pan, so your times may differ.
7. Cool on a wire rack, then bag and freeze.
8. To serve, peel the liner off frozen muffin and microwave until warm.
(Note: The zucchini, carrots, and apple (if using fresh) are very easy to prepare if you have a food processor. I first processed them with the shredding/grating blade, then again with the chopping blade until they were finely chopped. I also used the chopping blade of my food processor to grind 1/2 cup old fashioned oats into a coarse oat "flour.")

    It takes a while to put these together but they are really really good and filling. I will add more cinnamon the next time and grate the vegetables smaller. I didn't get quite 30 muffins so be sure to adjust the calorie count if you get less. Definatly make these again. - 10/27/08

    I love all the healthy ingredients in this recipe. I made them on Sunday and plan to grab one on my way to work in the mornings. I'm hoping it will sustain me until lunch. Not sure they will, but they are good. - 11/10/08

    I often have one of these muffins, a banana, and a small glass of juice for breakfast and it keeps me until lunch. I'm glad you like them!
