Carrot Walnut Mini Muffins

If you know me at all, you know I love having muffins on hand. These are perfect as a quick, healthy snack or to throw in the lunchbox. I make a double batch and store them in the freezer to grab as needed. I found the recipe here.
Carrot Walnut Mini Muffins

Dry ingredients:
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon crushed flax seed
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
dash nutmeg
1/2 cup brown sugar

Wet ingredients:
2 tablespoons oil
1 banana, mashed
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (or vanilla if you want sweeter)
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions:
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Add wet ingredients. (Sometimes if it seems a little dry I add a tiny bit of milk here.) Stir and put in greased mini muffin tins. Bake at 400 for about 10 minutes or until toothpick poked in center of muffin comes out clean.
