Confession: I love to bake with vegetables. This doesn’t always thrill my kids, but the Cinnamon-Carrot Muffins from Whole Living magazine are a new favorite. I decided to make them for Lauren, my four-year old carrot-lover, but my older daughter gobbled them up too. The muffins are reasonable in terms of sugar, and two cups of grated carrots really boost the health factor. And if you grate the carrots by hand like I did, you will get an unexpected arm workout as a bonus.
Hummm, I think I might be able to get the boys to eat those. Thanks for this blog – it has been inspiring me to start making some new things too! I will never be as adventurous as you are, but then again, I am not as good in the kitchen. Still, I am going to work on it thanks to you!
Thank you Beth, your comments made my day! I am going to try another muffin recipe with pumpkin and chocolate chips soon — I think your boys might like those ones too.
