Stay Healthy Omega Bran Muffins

Hi Readers....Check These Out!!!!

I have created a MUST BAKE for you and they are absolutely delicious, moist, and contain the very important nutrients we should all be consuming on a daily basis. These power packed tasty treats house the fabulous Omega 3 fatty acids proven to reduce the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure just to name a couple of the many health benefits. Did you know you should include 25-38 grams of fiber daily??? The protein is an added boost. This muffin has it all....I guarantee you will enjoy starting your day with this healthy and tasty meal....I must admit...I sometimes have 2 per for breakfast and a fabulous afternoon treat:)...they are THAT GOOD!!! Pass along to friends and will be glad you did:)

Stay Healthy Omega Bran Muffins

1 cup Old Fashioned Oats (grind or blend to flour consistency)

1/2 cup vanilla whey protein

3/4 cup flax meal

3/4 cup oat bran

1 cup brown sugar

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt (optional...I leave it out)

2 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 cup shredded carrot (wash 1 large carrot, leave skin on, and grate to shredded)

2 medium apples (peeled and grate to shredded)

1 cup chopped walnuts

3/4 cup light vanilla soy milk (yes you can use regular n/f or skim milk)

2 eggs beaten

1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare muffin pans with a nonstick cook spray or use paper liners. This recipe does not require a mixer....simple and delicious!!!

Mix together the ground oatmeal, protein powder, flax meal, oat bran, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon, set aside. Mix grated carrot and apples into the dry mixture with a spoon until well combined. The mixture will be very thick moist. Stir in walnuts. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, vanilla and milk together. Pour this mix over the prepared ingredients, and stir until well combined. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full (sometimes I take it all the way to the top). Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. I find that darker pans cook faster and the product will be done at the 15 minute timer. This recipe yields 12 power packed muffins!!!

Enjoy and Stay Healthy!!!!
