My first time ever making muffins! It was supposed to be a carrot cake but I realized I don't actually own a cake pan! But I do have muffin pans. ^_^

Recipe Ingredients for Carrot and Zucchini Muffins

1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 cup carrots, grated
1 cup zucchini, grated
2 red delicious apples, boiled, mashed
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp margarine

Recipe Directions for Carrot and Zucchini Muffins

  1. Stir together the oil and the brown sugar.

  2. Beat in the egg, then the applesauce.

  3. Stir in the carrot and zucchini.

  4. In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients.

  5. Fold the dry into the wet until it is just mixed or else you run the risk of the muffins coming out too thick and dry.

  6. Preheat the oven to 400F.

  7. Grease the pans and spoon the mixture into the pans.

  8. For larger tops fill to the max and then some.

  9. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until a tooth pick comes out clean.
