No one will guess that the mystery ingredient in your muffins is rutabaga or parsnips. The grated raw vegetable adds fibre and moistness and is delicious paired with crystallized ginger and honey. This recipe works equally well with large-flake rolled oats or the quick-cooking (not instant) type.

Preparation Time: Cooking Time: Servings: 12


  • 1 1⁄2 cup (375 ml) all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄2 cup (125 ml) rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) baking powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp (2 ml) salt
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) crystallized ginger (finely chopped)
  • 1⁄2 cup (125 ml) raisins
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (250 ml) Ontario rutabaga or parsnip (medium, grated and peeled)
  • 3⁄4 cups (188 ml) milk
  • 1⁄2 cup (125 ml) Ontario honey
  • 1⁄4 cup (63 ml) vegetable oil

Grease or spray muffin cups with nonstick vegetable cooking spray.
In large bowl, combine flour, rolled oats, baking powder and salt. Stir in ginger and raisins; set aside.
