These are REALLY good warm or cold.  The recipe has a cream cheese mix that goes in it, but I make them without it.  I like it better without.


Carrot and Cream Cheese Muffins

1 cup bran cereal

1/2 cup boiling water

2 eggs

2 cups buttermilk

2 cups quick-cooking oats

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup shredded carrots

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

cream cheese filling ( recipe follows)

 In small bowl, mix bran cereal and boiling water, set aside to cool.  In large bowl beat eggs.  Stir in buttermilk, oats, sugar, brown sugar, and oil; mix well.  Add flour, baking soda and aslt; stir just until moistened.  Stir in cooled bran mixture, carrots and walnuts.   Grease muffin pans or line with paper liners.  Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.  Place 1 tablespoon Cream cheese filling over batter; top with 2-3 tablespoons batter.  Bake in 350 oven for 18 to 20 minutes.  (BATTER CAN BE REFRIGERATED UP TO ONE WEEK TO BAKE SMALLER BATCHES AT DIFFERENT TIMES)

 Cream cheese filling

Hi Melissa- I already posted the pumpkin choc. chip muffins from Cooking Light in the other thread- but in addition to those I really like some of the muffin recipes from the Quaker Oats website.  I can't think of exactly which ones right now- I believe I tried one with apples, and another one with lemon and blueberry, and they were both great.  You might want to check out that site for some ideas.
