Quick morning recipe

Healthy Morning Muffins
These muffins are so good and I actually made a second batch for our breakfasts this week! If you know my cooking you know that I get bored easily and am always trying new recipes so the fact that I made the same thing twice says a lot!


Makes 12.

Nonstick cooking spray
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large egg
1/3 cup skim milk
4 medium carrots, shredded
1 medium ripe banana, mashed


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking 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 cup batter. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean, 23 to 25 minutes. Serve muffins warm or at room temperature. (To store, keep in an airtight container, up to 3 days.)

I made these in a HUGE muffin tin (like the same size as the muffins at a bakery) and cooked them at the same temp for the same length and they still came out great. With my tin it made 6 large muffins filled to the brim.

Great, I'll give them a try. I favor muffins for the breakfast table along with a little fruit and the strawberries have been great around here lately!
