    I have been playing with muffin recipes trying to create healthy snacks for my family. This is my latest creation. As you can see, I packed as much fiber into these as possible. They are pretty good if you like whole grain goodness - this recipe could also be used as a base for creating any kind of whole grain muffin. These are not for people looking for "cupcake" textured muffins.


    • 1 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour
    • 1 cup unprocessed bran
    • 1/2 cup flax meal
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 egg white
    • 1/2 cup applesauce
    • 1/2 cup lowfat milk
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1/4 cup plain yogurt or low fat sour cream
    • 2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
    • 3 Tablespoons Agave nectar (can be left out or may add more)
    • 1 zucchini grated (skin on)
    • 1 apple grated (skin on)
    • 1-2 carrots grated (fine grate)
    • 1/2 cup dried figs chopped
    • 1/2 cup dried apricots chopped


    1. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Whisk first eight ingredients together to blend (dry ingredients).
    3. In separate bowl mix eggs, applesauce, milk, oil, yogurt/sour cream, agave and vanilla together.
    4. Using rubber spatula mix wet and dry ingredients together just until blended - do not over mix or muffins will be tough.
    5. Gently fold in grated fruits/veggies and chopped dried fruit.
    6. Line muffin pan with paper liners or spray with vegetable spray.
    7. Using ice cream scoop, fill liners 1/2 way with batter.
    8. Bake @ 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Rotate pan halfway through cooking if oven bakes unevenly.
