These weekday-friendly muffins are healthier than many, thanks to whole wheat flour and limited oil. The batter keeps well in the fridge, so if you like, bake just a couple of muffins at a time, for always-oven-fresh treats.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup raisins

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together both flours, baking powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, brown sugar, oil, milk and honey. Add all at once to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Fold in raisins. (If you like, store batter in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.)
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees . Line muffin cups with paper bake cups. Without stirring, fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake for 18 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let cool in pans on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from pans; serve warm.
