Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup grated apple (about 1 large apple)
  • 1 cup grated carrots (about 3 carrots)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup raisins* (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line muffin tin with baking cups or lightly grease with butter.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients: flour, oats, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and stir until well incorporated.
  3. In a separate large bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients; grated apple, grated carrots, maple syrup, melted butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla, and whisk to combine.
  4. Transfer the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk well until the batter is smooth and there are no lumps. (Optional: Once the batter is mixed, add the raisins and fold in gently.)
  5. Divide the batter evenly across the muffins cups.
  6. Transfer the muffin tin to the oven and bake for 20-22 minutes until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
  7. Once baked, allow to cool slightly, then transfer the muffins to a cooling rack and allow to cool to room temperature.
  8. The muffins can be served immediately, stored at room temperature for 5 days, in the fridge for up to 7 days or frozen for up to 3 months.

Notes

*For extra tender and sweet raisins, soak them in hot water for 5-10 minutes before adding them to the batter. However, be sure to strain them well and remove any excess water before adding them.
