Seriously GOOD!

Here's the recipe from last week's 'earthy' muffins! I still haven't come up with an official name for them, but the girls now call them Everything muffins...

"Everything Muffins"

4 c whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
2 c brown sugar (loosely packed)
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pie filling)
1 1/2 c milk
1/4 canola oil
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla

1 c raisins
1 c shredded carrots
1 c crushed walnuts
1 c oatmeal

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix until just combined. Then stir in the EXTRAS by hand until mixed through. Fill muffin tins close to the top (these are hearty and don't rise much).Bake for 15 minutes (8-10 minutes for mini muffins) Makes about 3 dozen regular sized muffins

I've toyed around with substituting honey rather than brown sugar- but don't have it quite perfected yet...
