I’m super excited about this new Saturday Market Muffin!

 

I call them Saturday Market Muffins because they are loaded with a variety of healthy ingredients. Your teeth will sink into a tender but sturdy muffin just bursting with flavor.

Saturday Market Muffins are dense, hearty muffins that will keep your tummy full longer and without added fat.

 

 

Just look at all the yummy carrots, apples, nuts and raisins, in these muffins!! Of course, what you can’t see is the oat bran and flaxseed they are full of as well…lots of fiber.

Breakfast or snack? I’m thinking maybe both!

Saturday Market Muffins                      About 20 muffins.
Preheat oven to 350.
Prepare muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray or use liners.
1 1/2 cups flour (gluten-free if needed) I used a gluten-free flour blend for baking.
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
2 tsp cinnamon
*1 tsp xanthan gum if gluten-free flour was used
1 1/2 cups peeled and grated carrots
1 medium peeled and grated apple
1 medium apple, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
3/4 cup milk (or milk substitute)
2 eggs (or egg substitutes) I use Ener-G Egg Replacer or aquafaba
1 tsp vanilla

In a large mixing bowl add flour, flaxseed meal, oat bran, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and xanthan gum (if needed).  Mix well.

In a small bowl add milk, (or milk substitute) eggs, (or egg substitute) and vanilla. Mix well.

Add grated and chopped carrots and apples, raisins, and nuts to dry ingredients. Stir together. This will be very thick.

Add liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and stir. Be careful not to over mix.

Fill muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

These Saturday Market Muffins get better as the day goes on, so save some for later!  Freeze in freezer-safe containers for longer storage and to have on hand when hunger hits!

These muffins would also complement a hearty bowl of this ground turkey and 7 vegetable soup on a cozy fall evening.
