Stuffed Carrot Bran Muffins

Stuffed Carrot Bran Muffins

1 1/4 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
1 1/2 cups grated carrot
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
2 cups bran flakes, crushed to 1 cup
2 oz. light cream cheese, cut in 12 pieces
2 teaspoons sugar

  • Combine ingredients, stir just until moistened. Divide half of batter into paper lined muffin cups. Place 1 piece of cream cheese in the center of each and place remaining batter over cream cheese. 
  • Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and sugar
  • Sprinkle sugar over top of each muffin
  • Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Notes: I added about 2 tablespoons of coconut and a few raisins. I used fat-free cream cheese and it cooked perfectly. These are awesome bran muffins!
