Healthy Morning Muffins

Hey guys! here is the tasty recipe I mentioned in the last post. they are called "healthy morning muffins" and they are simple and yummy for breakfast. i got the recipe from an every day food (which i finally subscribed to recently--woot!)...sometimes, on sundays i like to make muffins or scones for the upcoming week's breakfast. cereal just get boring sometimes...so enjoy! the recipe came from a lady named Fawn Dixon from Fairbanks, Alaska...

Healthy Morning Muffins

nonstick spray
1 1/4 C. all purpose flour
1/2 C. packed dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 C. raisins
3 tbsp. EVOO
1 lg. egg
1/3 C. skim milk
4 medium carrots
1 medium ripe banana

1.) preheat oven to 400 degrees. coat a 12 cup muffin pan with spray. in a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt until there are no lumps. Stir in oats and raisins. Add oil, egg, milk, carrots, and banana and stir until blended.
2.) fill each muffin cup with 1/4 c. batter. bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean, 23 to 25 mins. serve muffin warm or at room temperature (to store, keep in air tight container, up to 3 days).

they are really good warm with butter on them...perhaps with some eggs and a good ol cup of joe in the morning.
