Mix the dry ingredients together (first 9 ingredients listed).
Add the apple and carrot and coat with the flour mixture.
Melt the margarine in the microwave for 30 seconds and pour over the other ingredients. Stir in just a little.
Beat egg and milk together and pour over other ingredients. Mix with a spoon until just combined.
Let the mixture sit for a few minutes so that bran can soak up some of the milk.
Use a heaped spoonful of mixture for each muffin into your greased muffin tin.
