These fruity muffins are moist, tender and taste almost like carrot cake. They freeze well too.


1 3/4 cups Bran cereal with raisins
1 1/4 cups all-purpose Flour
3/4 cup Sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons baking Soda
1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 Egg
3/4 cup Buttermilk
1/4 cup Canola oil
3/4 cup finely chopped peeled tart Apple
3/4 cup grated Carrots
1/4 cup chopped Walnuts


In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In a small bowl, beat the egg, buttermilk and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apple, carrots and walnuts. Fill paper-lined muffin cups or cups coated with nonstick cooking spray three-fourths full. Bake at 400 for 20-23 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
