Monkey Muffins


Sunday morning after a sleepover always calls for a breakfast creation. One of my best friends had slept over and we decided to bake breakfast before we went to church. We decided on a healthy recipe from the back of a ground flax seed bag. I called them monkey muffins because of the monkey peeler who did such a good job peeling the carrots. This muffin recipe is from BOB'S Red Mill whole ground flaxseed meal and has no oil or butter. I added a dried apricot on top of each muffin.
Bran Flax Muffins
1 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
3/4 cup flaxseed meal
3/4 cup Oat Bran cereal
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 cups finely shredded apples
1/2 cups raisins (optional)
1 cup chopped nuts
3/4 cup milk
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Mix together flour, Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed Meal, oat bran, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir in carrots, apples, raisins (if desired), and nuts. Combine milk, beaten eggs, and vanilla. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients. Stir until ingredients are moistened. DO NOT OVER MIX. Fill muffin cups 3/4 cup full. Bake at 350f for 15-20 minutes. Yield: 15 muffins.
