2 Apples, Shredded (about 1 cup)
3 Carrots, shredded (about 1 cup)
2 Bananas, mashed (about 3/4 cup)
1 Cup Raisins


-Preheat oven to 375 degrees (I have dark pans so I set mine at 350 degrees)
-In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.

-Beat oil, brown sugar and honey in a large mixing bowl
-Add eggs, milk, apples, carrots and bananas. mix until combined.

-Stir in wheat bran and oat bran. let batter sit for 10 minutes.
-Fold in dry ingredients and raisins.

-Divide into muffin pans, filling each 3/4 full.
-bake small muffins for 18 minutes and large muffins for 27 minutes.
