      Apple-Carrot Muffins

      1.25 cups whole wheat flour
      1/2 cup brown sugar
      1/2 tsp baking powder
      1/2 tsp baking soda
      1 tsp cinnamon
      1/2 tsp salt
      1 cup rolled oats
      1 tbs ground flaxseed
      2.5 tbs water
      3 tbs olive oil
      1/3 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
      1/2 cup applesauce
      4 carrots, grated
      1/2 cup fresh cranberries, roughly chopped

      Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
      Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir in the oats.
      In a small bowl, mix together the ground flaxseed with water. Let sit for at least 5 min for it to start to gel.
      Add the olive oil, yogurt, and applesauce to the flax mixture and whisk together. Dump into the dry ingredients along with the carrots and cranberries.
      Using a rubber spatula, stir until the mixture is just combined. Do not over-mix otherwise the muffins will come out tough.
      Spoon the batter evenly among the muffin tin and bake for 24 to 28 min, until the tops are puffed and golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack.
