This muffin is moist and tasty as well as being a great source of fibre. This kids will love it…just don’t tell them how good it is for them!

¾ cups oil (e.g canola or sunflower)

2 cups buttermilk (or regular milk with 2 Tblsp. of vinegar added)

3 cups oat bran

4 tsps baking soda

1 tsp. salt

2 tsp cinnamon

Vegetables and Fruit Ingredients:

3 cups grated carrots

1 cup dried cranberries (or dried raisins if you prefer—but change the name of the muffinJ)

Mix the wet ingredients—set aside.  Mix the flour, bran, soda, salt and cinnamon together well.  Bit by bit, mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient mixture.  When the two mixtures  are fully integrated, add in the grated carrots and the cranberries.  Spoon into muffin tins and bake for approximately 20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean..Makes 2 ½ dozen large muffins.  These muffins will keep moist about a week in a sealed container but also freeze well.Compliments of Julie Hill, Region of Waterloo Public Health

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc. My business story started a way back in 2001... …after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions. The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources. The website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me. I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do! I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
