Posted3/12/2012 11:48 AM

1 cup all-purpose (plain) flour

1 cup whole-wheat flour

cup sugar

2 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

teaspoon salt

cup egg substitute

cup vegetable oil

cup unsweetened applesauce

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups chopped apples, unpeeled

cup raisins

cup grated carrots

2 tablespoons chopped pecans

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a standard muffin pan with paper or foil liners.

In a bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Whisk to blend evenly.

In a separate bowl, add egg substitute, oil, applesauce and vanilla. Stir in apples, raisins and carrots. Add to the flour mixture and blend until just moistened but still slightly lumpy.

Spoon the batter into muffin cups, filling each cup about two-thirds full. Sprinkle with chopped pecans and bake until springy to the touch, about 35 minutes.

Let cool 5 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

Serves 18.
