Recipe Notes

  • For a more carrot cake-like taste, increase the amount of shredded carrots.
  • Add chopped walnuts or pecans for crunch.
  • This recipe also can be made in a regular 6-muffin pan.
  • If you don't like raisins, leave them out. You could also substitute with dried cranberries, dried cherries or dates.
  • Keep fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Combine oats, milk, brown sugar, applesauce, eggs, cinnamon, baking powder, vanilla, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl. Fold in carrot and raisins.
  2. Spray a 12-cup mini-muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin and bake in a 375-degree F oven for 25 minutes or until the muffin tops are brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing.
  3. Serve warm or at room temperature.
