Perfect Breakfast Muffins

(12 servings)

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 medium carrot (peeled and grated)
  • 1 large apple (peeled and grated)
  • 1/2 cup raisins (golden is best)
  • 1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat-germ (if you don't have it just use equal amount of flour)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk the first four ingredients together with an electric mixer.

Mix the oats, flour, wheat-germ, baking soda, baking powder, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt. Fold into the wet mixture.

Add and mix in with a spatula the fruit and nuts.

Fill in the muffin tray cups to the top (not over). They will rise nicely. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.

Delicious and hearty with grated carrot, raisins and shredded coconut. Whole grain oats and wheat germ add a healthy dose of fiber.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank HollyMartel for this recipe.
