College Love Muffins June 4, 2010

Filed under: Breakfast,Dessert — kchrismon @ 2:30 pm

I visited the home of one of my best friends who I met in college. There we were, sitting at the dinner table with her family, and her super healthy mom pulls out “dessert.” Guess what it was? These bran flax muffins. Yes, indeed. She says, “They have carrots! And no butter!” I practically turn green, but try it anyway, and fall in love. So the title to these deals with the love of my best friend and the love I have with these muffins. Don’t be turned off by the ingredients – I promise they’re good! And the easiest to make.


1 1/2 cups flour

3/4 cups flaxseed or flaxseed meal

3/4 cups oat bran

1 cup brown sugar

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 cups carrots, shredded (buy the shredded kind from the grocery store, then just cut them up to make them smaller – WAY easier than actually shredding carrots)

1 apple peeled and shredded or cut into small pieces

1 banana mashed

1/2 cup cranberries

1 cup nuts chopped

3/4 cups milk

2 eggs beaten

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Zest of 1/2 lemon

Juice of 1/2 lemon


Mix, bake 350 for 16 minutes.

Adapted from Bess’ mom’s recipe. Shout out – hell yeah! 🙂
