These apple, raisin, and carrot muffins have oats and a hint of cinnamon– it is soo good, especially in autumn. Weird that pic is on top of my AC unit but whatever. The recipe is pretty light and I eat them in replacement of a granola bar during the day, but they would also be great for breakfast or a dessert.
