by Millie Bentley

Greetings. In observance of good nutrition, daughter-in-law Nancy gave me this recipe for some really good, healthy muffins. You might like to try these as a fast breakfast treat when you run out the door heading for work.

Bran Flax Muffins

1 1 /2 cups white bleached all purpose flour

3/4 cup flaxseed meal

3/4 cup oat bran

1 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking soda

I teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 1/2 cups carrots, shredded

2 apples peeled and shredded

1/2 cup raisins

1 cup nuts, chopped

3/4 cup milk

2 eggs, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl, mix together flour, flaxseed meal, oat bran, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir in carrots, apples, raisins and nuts.

In a small bowl, combine milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients Stir until all ingredients are moistened, but do not over mix. Fill 12 muffins cups 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean.

Until next week, dear Reader, vaya con Dios.
