1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 medium banana, mashed
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 medium apple, cored and chopped
1/2 cup raisins

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 12 cup muffin pan (or loaf pan) with cooking spray, set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Mix well, set aside.

3. In a small bowl, combine milk, oil, banana, and egg. Add milk mixture to flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Add apple and raisins.
