Once in a while, a mom is able to out-manipulate her kids. And by once in a while, we mean hardly ever. When one of our MomLogic Moms made these "HA HA You're Eating Vegetables!" muffins for her preschoolers, her three-year-old squealed with joy.
2 cups flour **I use whole wheat flour
2 cups shredded carrots
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup shredded zucchini
1 golden delicious apple cored and finely chopped
3/4 cup golden raisins
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons orange zest
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil **can substitute apple sauce.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees .
Mix all ingredients except eggs and oil in a large bowl. Beat eggs and oil in a separate bowl. Stir flour mix into eggs.
Spoon into greased muffin cups 3/4 full.
Bake for about 25 minutes. Transfer muffins on a rack to cool. Serve warm.
