Number of Servings: 14


    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)


1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray muffin pan.

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 3/4 full for medium sized muffins.

5.) Bake at 350 F for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Enjoy!

Yeild: 10-12 large muffins, 13-14 small-medium sized.

    These were fantastic, omitted the raisins and added dried apricot. Only used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 3 tbls honey. Still turned out sweet and moist. Sprinkled walnuts tossed in cinnamon on top before baking, made the top crunchy mmm Used 1/2 cup apple sauce instead of oil and all wholemeal flour.mmm - 2/27/09

    I didn't have ground flax seed or a coffee grinder so I put them in whole and they turned out good. I used applesauce instead of oil and only used a 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Not sure if I would make them that way again. - 2/18/10
