Recipe Ingredients for Morning Glory Muffins

1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups grated carrots, (4 medium)

1/2 cup raisins

Recipe Directions for Morning Glory Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Coat 18 muffin cups with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir in carrots, apple and raisins. Whisk egg, egg whites, apple butter, oil and vanilla in a medium bowl.

  3. Make a well in the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients with a rubber spatula until just combined. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them about three-fourths full. Combine pecans and flax seed in a small bowl; sprinkle over the muffin tops.

  4. Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown and spring back when touched lightly, 15 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pans for 5 minutes. Loosen edges and turn muffins out onto a wire rack to cool.
