Serves: 18 person(s)
Yield: 18 x muffins

Preparation Time: 35 mins
Cooking Time: 20 mins

Ingredients:

    1 cup wheat flour
    1 cup flaxseed meal
    1 cup oat bran
    1/2 cup organic sugar
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp sea salt
    1 cup chopped walnuts
    1/2 cup whey protein powder
    1/2 cup molasses
    3 eggs, lightly beaten
    3/4 cup plain soy milk (such as Silk)
    1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cup shredded carrots
    1 large apple, peel on, shredded

Directions:

    Lightly spray muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray.

    In a bowl, mix together dry ingredients: wheat flour, flaxseed meal, oat bran, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, walnuts, and whey powder.

    In a separate bowl, mix together wet ingredients: molasses, eggs, soy milk, vanilla, carrots, and apple.

    Add combined wet ingredients into the combined dry ingredients and stir until mixed (ingredients will be a bit runny). Divide the batter evenly between the 18 muffin cups, being careful not to overfill.

    Bake at 350F for 20 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing muffins.

Variations:

    Can replace wheat flour with an equal amount of spelt flour.
