Vegan Carrot Bran Muffins or Bread
This Vegan Carrot Bran Muffin recipe features carrots which lend sweet, buttery notes. These flavors are further enhanced by just the right amount of molasses and your choice of wheat germ, wheat bran or oat bran. Raisins are added for additional sweetness and flavor depth and a touch of vanilla extract ties the flavors together into a dense and hearty muffin.

This is a great recipe . I modified it slightly by using applesauce in place of the oil and added cinnamon and nutmeg for extra flavour.
Will save for future!
This is a good recipe, thanks! I will make it again but with a couple small changes: I found it a bit too sweet, not surprising really since carrots, sugar and molasses all add sweetness. Next time I will use only one-quarter cup of sugar. The other changes that I made the first time around are routine for me: I used one-quarter cup of oil because you don't really taste the additional oil and it just adds calories, and I used a flax egg.
I served these to 3 carnivores who could not believe they were vegan! I added generous dash of ground cinnamon and ginger. YUM! I will be making these every 12 days to have a healthy quick on hand breakfast. THANKS for a great recipe!
i will definately check this out as well, looks great!
