Toddler-friendly Zucchini Carrot Muffins

Another toddler muffin recipe-- this time, with hidden vegetables!  Shira seems to love these just as much as the banana raspberry muffins. She now eats 1 muffin every day as part of breakfast or a snack.  That's my daughter!  Muffins are the best!


2 large carrots, shredded
2 bananas, mashed
1 zucchini, shredded and water pressed out
1/2 C plain or vanilla yogurt
2 eggs
1 C whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C oatmeal
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
3 oz raisins

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Mix carrots, banana, zucchini and eggs.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, brown sugar, oatmeal, salt, cinnamon and ginger.  Add raisins and stir to coat.
4. Mix dry and wet ingredients gently until just combined.
5. Grease muffin pan with cooking spray. Spoon into 12 regular muffin or 24 mini muffin tins.  
6. Bake 22-25 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
7. Cool 10 min in pan and then remove to cooling rack to cool completely.

Freezes well!
