These make great breakfast muffins – Not overwhelmingly sweet but sweet enough, satisfying and filling, loaded with nuts and raisins, plus honey, orange juice and carrots for extra oumph. This seems to be quite a flexible recipe.
Stir the dry ingredients together. In another bowl, mix wet ingredients together (make sure to soak the raisins for 5 minutes, then discard the water) and pour them into the dry mix bowl. Stir until just combined, then pour into 6 greased muffin molds and bake at 350F for 20 minutes. Once out of the oven, leave the muffins in the molds for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
