Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal Muffins
Bring to work or serve as a brunch feature—either way, you and your guests will love these healthy, gluten-free muffins. With a punch of protein from almond butter, whole-grain goodness from rolled oats, fruit and veggies, you can’t go wrong with this wholesome treat.

2 ripe bananas 
1/4 cup almond butter
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
3/4 cups milk
1/ 8 cup honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cups carrots, grated
1 1/2  teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans


1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place 12 pieces of parchment paper or  muffin-cup liners in muffin cups.

2. To prepare muffins, mash 2 ripe bananas, then combine with the next 8 ingredients, stirring with a whisk.

3. Grate carrots in either a food processor, blender, or on a box grater; combine ¾ cup grated carrots with the remaining ingredients; combine with the muffin mixture.

4. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle with chopped pecans, if desired.

5. Bake at 375° for 20-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool muffins in pan 5 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.
