I promised a few people that I'd share my carrot muffin recipe, so here goes:
1 c. pureed cooked carrots
1/3 - 1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 T. ground flaxseed, mixed with 1/2 c. hot water, (allow to sit for 5 min. before mixing into the batter)
mix the above ingredients well.
1.5 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. whole oats (optional)
1/2 t. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
Combine wet and dry ingredients. Mix well, but don't overmix. spoon into prepared muffin cups (I use silicone muffin cups for baking these, although sometimes I'm lazy and just bake it in a loaf pan to make carrot "bread") and bake at 350 F for about 25 min. (check to be sure they are done!)
I usually double the recipe...
Enjoy! Let me know how they come out!
p.s. you can use other things in place of the 1 cup of carrots - applesauce, shredded zucchini, butternut squash puree, banana puree, any fruit puree (can be chunky puree!) to make other kinds of muffins. Enjoy!
