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

Preparation Time: 35 mins
Cooking Time: 20 mins


    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


    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.


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