Full of healthy ingredients as well as some scrumptious sweetness. Make a fresh batch and freeze the rest for early mornings when you just need a boost to start the day.

Author Simply Luxurious
1 1/2cupswhole wheat flour
1/2 cupold-fashioned oats
1cupbrown sugar, packed
1tspsalt, fleur de sel
2cupsgrated carrotsI use a food processor, adding the rough chopped carrots into the machine and pulsing until all is chopped evening and well (but not mush - you still want to know you have carrots in your muffin).
1appleapple of your choice, grated (peeled and cored)I use what I have in the kitchen at the time. Using a box grater, I peel, core, quarter and then manually grate.
2/3cupcanola oil or sesame oil or vegetable oilNOT olive oil
1/2cuproasted and chopped nuts of your choiceI used almonds and hazelnuts (pecans work well also)
1/8 -1/4cupflax seed
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Find your muffin tin and parchment liners.
Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, flax, .brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and soda and salt.
In a second mixing bowl (or the stand mixer's bowl) stir together the carrots, apple, oil and eggs. Add the flour mixture, stirring until just combined.Stir in the nuts and raisins
Using a large spoon or scoop spatula or large ice cream scoop, place the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
Bake for 25-29 minutes or until a knife or toothpick comes out clean from the center. Let cool for just a few minutes, and enjoy warm. I serve it with salted butter
Have fun experimenting and exploring. I used what I had in my épicerie on Saturday, so if you have a pear instead of an apple go forth and swap without worry. :)
