Apple Cranberry Carrot Muffins

I love making muffins for breakfast. You can have so many different combinations. I always like to add extra add-ins because no one likes a boring muffin! My favorite are these Apple Cranberry Carrot muffins. They are pretty dense because of all the apples and carrots. So if you are looking for a light and fluffy muffin, these aren’t the ones you want. But if you want nutrient rich muffins, turn on your oven and start baking!!

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 apple, grated (and peeled if you desire, I always keep the peel on)
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare a 12-tin muffin tray with cooking spray.
  • Using a mixer beat the eggs, sugars, oil, and vanilla making sure there are no lumps from the brown sugar.
  • Slowly add in the flour, oats salt, baking soda and baking powder until well mixed.
  • Add in the dried cranberries, grated apple and grated carrots until just combined.
  • Pour the mixture into greased muffin tin. I like to sprinkle a little bit of coarse sugar on top. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Allow the muffins to cool before removing them from the tins.
