carrot-muffins recipe

 I made this recipe up.  While it's for muffins, it could be made
 as a cake, probably.  The brown sugar can be replaced by something
 else for those who object to this.
 - 6 shredded carrots (peel, then shred using Cuisinart disk)
 - 20 ounce can crushed pineapple (no sugar; packed in own juice)
 - 1 cup raisins, or dried cranberries, or dried cherries, or a combo
 - 1 cup (or more, or less) roughly chopped walnuts (optional)
 put all of this in a large bowl.
 in food processor (or mixer, or mix by hand, although it takes longer),
 - 1 cup whole wheat flour
 - 1 cup unbleached flour
 - 2 cups wheat bran (or a mixture of wheat and oat, but don't use more than
 2/3 cup oat, or the muffins will taste like horse feed)
 - 6 T malt sugar (malt sugar is a WONDERFUL substitute
 for regular sugar; it's healthier and has a terrific taste.  Available
 in health food stores)
 - 1/2 cup brown sugar (for a sweeter muffin -- these are medium-sweet --
 use 3/4 to 1 cup)
 - 4 teas. baking soda
 - 1 T vanilla
 - 2 eggs worth of egg substitute, or 1/2 cup egg whites
 - 2 cups nonfat buttermilk  
 Process until mixed (will only take about 10 seconds).  Pour into
 bowl with carrot mixture.  Put into paper-lined muffin pans.  This
 recipe will make AT LEAST two dozen muffins.  Recipe can be halved.
 Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes (or until they're browned and fragrant).
 Freeze (completely cooled) in plastic bags if desired.
