Makes 24 Mini Bundt’s or Small Muffins
We love making “muffins” in a mini bundt tin because it makes an ordinary muffin seem more special.
I’m always looking for recipes that lil Diva will be proud to serve for snack at preschool.
I tweaked a recipe I found on RecipeZaar to make it healthier – using Organic Products, 100% Whole Wheat Flour, adding Flax Meal & using heart healthy grapeseed oil, even more carrots and extra cinnamon.
3 Cups of Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
4 Tablespoons of Flax Meal
1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
4 Teaspoons Baking Powder
3 Teaspoons of Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Salt
3 Cups of Grated Carrots
1 Cup of Raisins
1 Cup of Milk
1/2 Cup of Molasses
1/2 Cup Grapeseed Oil
In large bowl combine flour, flax meal, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. After it is well combined add Carrots & Raisins
In a separate bowl, stir together milk, molasses, grapeseed oil and eggs. Pour over dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
Spoon into mini bundt tins or muffin cups, filling three quarters full.
Bake in 375 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly pressed.
Granola is one of those foods that we tend to buy, believing it is a healthy choice. Add up all the sugar and fat you might be surprised at the what is hiding in those oats!
This recipe is super easy, made with a healthier grapeseed oil, with added wheat germ, flax meal and flax oil.
This granola recipe is not only yummy – It’s amped… amped in nutrition.
Our family has tree nut allergies, so we used pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Adding almonds, hazelnuts, or walnuts would also work great.
4 1/2 Cups of Oatmeal
1/2 Cup of Wheat Germ
2 Tablespoons of Flax Meal
1 1/2 Cups of Puffet Millet
1 Cup of Sunflower Seeds
1/2 Cups of Pumkin Seeds
2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
1/3 Cup of Coldpressed Grapeseed Oil
1/3 – 1/2 Cup of Agave Nectar, Brown Rice Syrup or Honey
1/3 Cup of Water
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
1/2 – 1 Cup of Raisins or other Dried Fruit
1 Tablespoon of Flax Oil
Heat oven to 300
In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients. Make a well in the dry ingredients.
Using a large measuring cup, combine wet ingredients (I measure at the same time!)
Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredient well and mix together. It should look almost like you are making an apple crumble topping!
Pour onto two cookie sheets or cake pans – place in oven, stir and rotate every 10 minutes and bake until golden brown – 35-45 minutes.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool and add dried fruit or raisins, drizzle the flax oil and combine well.
Store in an airtight container.
