In an effort to eat healthier, and get my boys to eat more vegetables and fruits, I came up with this recipe.
(Adapted from Better Homes and Garden New Cookbook 14th Edition)
1 3/4 C. whole wheat flour (Sub. 3/4 c. oatmeal and reduce flour to 1 1/3 c. if desired)
1/3 c. sugar
2 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 c. milk
2 jars baby food carrots
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chocolate chips
seasonings to taste (cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, etc.)
Add dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Add wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Mix those well. Combine in the dry bowl and mix until equally combined.
Pour into prepared muffin pan. I used spray and not liners. Fill about 3/4 full. Bake approx. 20 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
Cool 5 minutes on a wire rack. Pour a cup of coffee. Sit down. Grab the paper. Enjoy and relax!
