1 cup shredded carrots
1 c. raisins
½ c. chopped walnuts (optional)
1 c. buckwheat flour
1 c. sorghum flour
1 T. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Combine flax seed and hot water. Mix well and let stand for 20 minutes. The mixture should reach the consistency of egg whites.
3. Combine milk, applesauce. Flax seed/water mixture and agave nectar in large bowl.

This is reblog of an older post. I chose to revive this for Mother’s Day because food always remind’s me of my Mom who was a great cook and passed along her skills and recipes to me. Whenever Spring rolls around I think of inviting a few friends over for brunch, which Mom did every year. This is a recipe we discussed one year when she asked me for ideas.
Have a Happy Mother’s Day on Sunday and if she is still living, call your Mom!
This recipe sounds delicious! I was just thinking that I wanted to make a healthy carrot muffin for my daughter. I will have to try it.
Thank you Heather! Hope your daughter enjoys them.
I like the sound of this recipe. Thank you.
