Healthy Morning Muffin

From Everyday Food Magazine

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins (I used dried cranberries)
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large egg
1/3 cup skim milk
4 medium carrots, shredded
1 medium banana, mashed

Notice the little baby hand that always wants to get involved in whatever Mama is doing.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg and salt until there are no lumps. Stir in oats and raisins. Add oil, egg, milk, carrots and banana and stir until blended.

2. Fill each muffin cup with 1/4 cup batter. Bake 23-25 minutes.

This is an instant hit at our house. Evan can consume two of these in one sitting and I can't complain with all the goodness included in the recipe.
