Healthy Toddler Muffins
Need a healthy snack for your fussy toddler? These healthy muffins are filled with carrot and zucchini and naturally sweetened with raisins and applesauce.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tbsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 large eggs + 1 egg white
- 3/4 cup applesauce or olive oil
- 1 cup grated zucchini
- 1 cup grated carrot
- 1 cup golden sultanas
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12-count cupcake tray.
Squeeze the excess liquid out of carrots and zucchini. You want them to keep the cupcakes moist but not make them soggy.
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.
In another bowl, whisk eggs and apple sauce. Stir in grated zucchini , carrots and raisins (and optional flaxseed).
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
Fill cupcake trays until 3/4 full. Bake for approximately 20 minutes. They are done when a toothpick inserted comes out clean, and tops spring back when lightly touched.
Allow to cool in cupcake pan for 10 minutes before removing.
Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
