Whole Wheat Carrot and Raisin Muffins

Yummy muffins that are pretty to look at, and super tasty to munch on! Carrot gives these muffins a beautiful hue and an irresistible mouth-feel, while the juicy raisins are amazing to bite into every now and then. Adding whole wheat flour and bran to the batter gives the muffins a wonderful texture, unique flavour and a dash of good health too. Make sure you use brown sugar to make these muffins because they give a superb aroma when baked, and complement the vanilla flavour beautifully. If you are making the Whole Wheat Carrot and Raisin Muffins for toddlers, you can bake the batter in small paper cups instead of muffin moulds.
