Company Muffins

I love these muffins.....they remind me of carrot cake...good even without the yummy cream cheese frosting! LOL

1 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. oat bran
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. finely shredded carrots
2 lg. tart apples, peeled, cored and shredded
1/2 c. raisins (optional)
1 c. chopped pecans
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. skim milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten (or use egg substitute, or 4 egg whites)
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, oat bran, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir in sugar. Add carrots, apples, raisins and nuts. Stir well. Make a well in the center. Add oil, milk, eggs and vanilla. Stir just until moistened. Use a 1/4 cup measure to scoop muffin batter into greased tins. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until nicely browned. Makes 18 muffins.
