Carrot apple muffins

As I mentioned, we’ve started to change the way we cook meals in our house. That means having lots of veggies on hand all the time, including carrots. I found this recipe from the blog I Love Muffins and was too excited to try it. It was one of those instances where I had all the ingredients on hand. 


1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract


Mix together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder/soda, salt). In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (carrots, applesauce, eggs, milk, oil, extract). Add the dry to the wet, in stages, while mixing. Bake at 350F for ~20 minutes.

This is a simple recipe and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. They’re denser muffins than I expected, though, and aren’t light and fluffy like others. At the same time, they’re very delicious and moist. Definitely good to bring out as a snack (and by out, I mean to class… which starts today… oh yay!).
