Zucchini & Carrot Muffins

Happy Wednesday! I just noticed I said Happy Wednesday, correction, it is Thursday, LOL

I'm here today to share a super yummy, kind of healthy, recipe for zucchini & carrot muffins.  My kiddos helped make these and while they were a little disgusted by the zucchini at first, once they were done, they inhaled them!





I originally found the recipe here but tweaked it to fit what I had and to also lessen the sugar.



Here's how to make these delicious muffins:

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar + extra for sprinking on the top
  • 3/4 cup of pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 chocolate chips

Instructions:

**I'm going to start by saying most baking recipes always call to mix dry ingredients separate from wet, but I don't do that.  You can if that's what you prefer, I just don't feel the need to dirty another bowl when in my opinion, the outcome is the same :)

First, grab yourself a couple of cute helpers :) Not necessary but will make it more fun (or not, depending on how it goes)





Preheat oven to 350.

Mix all of the above ingredients into 1 large mixing bowl.  Line your muffin tins with liners and spray with Pam. 

Fill each muffin tin about 3/4 full.  I had enough mix to make 18 muffins. Sprinkle a little sugar over each.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.  You will know they are ready when you put a fork in and it comes out clean. 


Seriously, these are so so good and an easy way to sneak some veggies into your kids, even if there's chocolate chips involved :)

Enjoy!

  1. Maybe I could get my toddlers to eat more veggies with this recipe. They love muffins so we sneak fruits and veggies in to them.

  2. These sound AMAZING! Our babies love muffins, so I bet I could get them to eat some veggies this way!

    And on a random note, I totally had a dream last night that I drove up to meet you and we hung out all day and had the BEST time and then I left to go home and we both realized after I left that we had forgotten to take a selfie together and we were so sad. Lol.
