Bran Flax Muffins

Today we made Bran Flax Muffins. My kids really love them and they are good for you, too. I don't even think they know how nutritious they are for you. If you are interested here is the recipe:

1 1/2 c. Unbleached White Flour
3/4 c. Flaxseed meal
3/4 c. Oat Bran
1 c. Brown Sugar
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 1/2 c. Carrots, shredded
2 Apples, peeled and shredded
1/2 c. Raisins (optional)
1 c. Nuts, chopped
3/4 c Milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. Vanilla

Mix together dry ingredients plus apples and carrots. Combine milk, eggs and vanilla. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients. Stir until ingredients are moistened. Do not over mix. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 mins. Enjoy!

We buy Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed meal and the recipe is on the package.
