Apple Carrot Muffins

Apples, carrots and raisins give these muffins a good bit of natural sweetness so less sugar is added overall to the recipe.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 apples peeled, cored, and grated
  • 1 1/2 cup carrots grated
  • 1 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients, flour through baking powder. Stir in the apples, carrots, flax seed and raisins. In the center of the mixture, make a large well.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and oil. Pour this mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until moistened.
  • Lightly grease a muffin tin or put muffin cups in each hole. Fill each about 3/4 full with the batter.
  • Bake in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until beginning to brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Notes

Simplify It: Buy pre-shredded carrots rather than grating your own.

We (Lesley and Ann) first met years ago while training for Ironman Wisconsin. Our paths crossed again at Georgia State University while studying to become registered dietitian nutritionists. Over the years, our paths kept crossing and we soon discovered that we shared a love for menu planning. This blossomed into My Menu Pal where we help the food industry up their nutrition game to become their customer's nutrition hero.
