Packed Bran Muffins

A lot of muffins these days are higher in fat and calories than doughnuts and cake but this recipe really puts the healthiness back into muffins and obviously tastes great too!

Preheat over to 350F. In a large bowl, combine whole wheat flour, ground flax, oats bran, cinnamon baking soda and baking powder. Set aside. 

In a medium bowl, combine egg, egg white, milk, sugar, honey and applesauce. Whisk. Set aside.

Using a food processor or by hand, grate apples and carrots. Set aside.

Make a well in dry ingredients and pour in wet mixture. Mix well!

Add carrot, apple, walnuts, raisins and dried cranberries. Combine.

 Drop large spoonfuls into line muffin tin.

 Bake for 15-20 minutes.
