I love having these around for the days I’m too busy to grab breakfast.
1 cup 100% bran cereal
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup packed brown sugar (I used 1/2 this amt.)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup shredded carrots
3/4 cup raisins
1 tbsp ground flax seed (my own addition)
In bowl, combine cereal with milk; let stand for 10 minutes.
Beat in egg, sugar, oil and vanilla.
In large bowl, combine all-purpose and whole wheat flours, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; stir in carrots and raisins. (Add flax seed, if using)
Stir in cereal mixture just until moistened.
Drop batter by rounded tablespoons onto lightly greased baking sheet; flatten slightly with fork.
Bake in 400 F oven for 15 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched.
Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes; transfer to rack and let cool completely.
