Lactose Free Carrot Ginger Bran Muffins

Trying something new today and it turned out to be something amazing. 

Here are my best young taste testers! There is one way to get them to eat their fruits and vegetables with natural sweetener of honey!

This recipe makes 24 regular sized muffins.

All finely shredded carrots were from our new Omega Juicer. I figured that why not use the the pulp that you can't drink for something nutritious and delicious! We got ours from Amazon. If you click on the highlight one on this blog you will get to it from there. 

Carrot Ginger Bran Muffins

2 Cups all-purpose flour
2 Cups whole wheat flour
1/2 Cup wheat bran
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 Cup raisins(or any kind of small dried berry)

1 Cup rice milk(or any other kind that you prefer)
4 eggs
2/3 Cup honey
1 stick or 1/2 Cup of melted butter

1 Cup finely shredded Carrots(I reserved my pulp from my juicer)

Grease two regular sized muffin tins. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

Mix all dried ingredients in a large bowl. 
Mix raisins in flour mixture until they are no longer sticking together.  
Mix the remainder of the ingredients in a medium bowl except the carrots. 
Pour wet mixture into dry mixture stir just until moist. Add carrots. 

Place at least 1/4 size scoops into muffin pans and distribute evenly. 
Bake for 20-25 min. Check after 20. 
If browned and when placing your finger on the top it bounces back they are finished. 

Serve immediately or place muffins on wire cooling rack. Then you may store in a zip lock and will keep for up to 4 days in a room temp house or pantry. You may label, date and store in a freezer zip lock bag and it will last for months. Although mine never last that long in my house. I have growing boys and it so nice to have that back up when we get home from work and school. I heat ours in the microwave for 30 seconds on high from the freezer. 

All are free to copy my recipe and use it for whatever they want. You may also use images of the food as well. Please don't use photos of my kids though, thank you.
