Recipe: Bran Flax Muffins

Some may say I'm obsessed with flax meal. Perhaps I am -- I eat it daily and try and put it in almost everything I bake. Here's a great recipe I found on the back of my flax meal bag (Bob's Red Mill). I still love the traditional bran muffin, but this is a fun embellishment on the old favorite.

1 1/2 cups Unbleached White Flour
3/4 cup Flaxseed Meal
3/4 cup Oat Bran
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt (I cut back a bit here)
2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 1/2 cups Carrots, shredded (Evan had fun putting our food processor to work!)
2 Apples, peeled and shredded (once again, food processor came in handy!)
1/2 cup Raisins (optional)
1 cup Nuts, chopped (we did pecans)
3/4 cup Milk
2 Eggs, beaten
1 tsp. Vanilla

Mix together flour, flaxseed meal, oat bran, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Stir in carrots, apples, raisins (if desired) and nuts.
Combine milk, beaten eggs and vanilla.
Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients.
Stir until ingredients are moistened. Do not over mix.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Yields 15 medium muffins.
