Ginger Prune Muffins

Want to start your day with a ton of fiber and yummy goodness.  Try these delicious Ginger Prune Muffins jam packed with nutrients from oats, raisins, carrots, prunes, ginger, pecans,  and cinnamon.  Don't be alarmed by the ingredients.  The  muffins taste sweet and delicious.  I even got the approval from my picky husband, so you know it has to be good.  The recipe was created by Karman Meyer and was in the recent Food and Nutrition magazine.  I modified it to fit my needs, and you can do the same if you desire.   I create a batch and eat them for breakfast over the next few days.   They are much healthier than the store bought muffins that are full of extra fat and calories.  Since these muffins are full of fiber they will satisfy your hunger in the morning.  

1 3/4 cup of flour 
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup golden rasins
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup chipped prunes
1/2 cup pecans
1 tbsp cinamon
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
2/3 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl mix flour, brown sugar and oats.  
Add the carrots, raisins, prunes, pecans, cinnamon, baking soda, cardomon, and salt. Mix well

In a separate bowl whisk the eggs, yogurt, applesauce, ginger and vanilla.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Scoop the batter in the muffin pan until it is about 3/4 full. 

 Bake for 15-17 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Allow to cool and then store in containers to eat for up to 3 days.
