Carrot Raisin Bran Muffins

Carrot Raisin Bran Muffins

These whole wheat muffins are made with whole rolled oats and wheat bran so they are loaded with fiber. Packed with bananas and shredded carrots, you are secretly working on your daily fruit and veggie serving requirements while enjoying a delicious muffin. Unlike most bran muffins, these are naturally sweetened with raisins and honey and packed with bananas and carrots, so they are moist, nutritious and perfectly suited for a breakfast or quick snack. A side note, after lining your muffin tin with wrappers, give the wrappers a quick spray of non-stick cooking spray. This will prevent the muffins from sticking to the paper too much. You could also make these without the paper wrappers. Just spray the pan with non-stick spray (or grease with butter) and pour the batter directly into the pan.
