Bran Flax Muffins

I made these muffins on Sunday and I am pretty embarrased to say that I think I ate four of them.  Um, I liked them a lot.    The recipe is on the back of Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed Meal.  The name of the recipe does them no justice.


Bran Flax Muffins
1 1/2 cups Unbleached White Flour  (I used whole wheat flour instead)
3/4 cup Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed Meal
3/4 cup Oat Bran
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 1/2 cups Carrots, shredded
2 Apples, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup Raisins -optional (I used em)
1 cup nuts, chopped.  (I used walnuts, and only about 1/4 cup)
3/4 cup Milk
2 Eggs, beaten
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, rasins, and nuts.  Combine milk, beaten eggs and vanilla.  pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients.  Stir until ingredients are moistenend.  Do not over mix.  Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes.  Yields 15 medium muffins. 
(I did use liners in my pan, and I cooked them for the full 20 minutes because they were quite mushy otherwise.  I ended up with 19 muffins.  So, so good!!
