Power Muffins: Jump Start Your Morning!

We love these muffins for a healthy jump start in the morning, hence the name Power Muffins :o)  And they're easy to make, too!

What you'll need:

1 1/2 cups flour (we use whole wheat, but you can also use AP)
3/4 c ground flax seed
3/4 c oat bran
3/4 c honey
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 c milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tbsp oil
2 cups shredded carrots (use your food processor or do a fine chop by hand)
2 apples, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional

How to do it:

1.  Preheat your oven to 350.  Oil your muffin pan.

2.  In a large bowl, mix flour, flax, bran, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.  Add the milk, honey, eggs, and oil; stir until just blended. 

3.  Stir in the carrots, apples, raisins, and nuts. 

4.  Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. I like to use a soup ladle to do this :o)

5.  Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes until deep golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Mmmm!

  1. Wow. That's a lot of stuff in those! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Those are some power muffins--super nutritional! I love that I can use honey from our bees in them, plus I have some carrots already grated. Last, they'll be easy to make gluten free. Thanks so much!


  3. Yum ~ definitely trying this recipe soon!
