  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs + 1 egg white
  • ¾ cup applesauce or olive oil
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1 cup golden sultanas
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. 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 ¾ 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.
