Healthy Morning Muffins and Bedhead

These muffins are a great way to start any day, and they are even more delicious if enjoyed with bed head. Just ask Ethan, my little man who refuses to eat anything nutrious....he ate two of these! I am thinking it was totally the bed head that tricked him into thinking these were not healthy.
Healthy Morning Muffins

non-stick cooking spray
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour, or you can use white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon course salt
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup raisins
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large egg
1/3 cup milk
4 medium carrots, shredded
1 medium ripe banana, mashed

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Coat a 12 cup muffin tin 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 oat and raisins. Add oil, egg, milk, carrots, and banana, and stir until blended.

Fill each muffin cup with 1/4 cup batter. Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, 23-25 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. (To store, keep in an airtight container, up to 3 days.)

Recipe featured in the January/February 2010 issue of Everyday Food.

and for record, Ethan would not share his "nack" , i.e. snack, with Dirty Monkey.
