Optional ingredients: 1/4 cup walnuts or raisins or coconut (sometimes I throw them all in)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups or a tray of mini muffins with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, sift together flours, flax seed, baking soda, salt, and spices. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, brown sugar, and eggs until well combined. Whisk in the applesauce, vanilla, and carrots. Add the dry ingredients until just combined. Stir in your add-ins (walnuts, etc.) if you are using them.
Fill muffin cups. Bake until toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes for big muffins, 10 or so for mini muffins.
