This recipe slightly adapted from King Arthur Flour is delectable! I made this recipe twice in two days because these muffins disappeared that quickly! I opted to use dried cranberries, but you can use any dried fruit you like.
Makes 8 ( 5 points +)
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 2 T. canola oil
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 c. grated zucchini
- 1 c. grated carrot
- 1/4 c. dried fruit
- 1/4 c. ground flax seed
- 3/4 c. white whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, oil, egg and salt. Stir in zucchini, carrot, and dried fruit.
Add flax seed, flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir until just combined.
Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray or use paper liners. Spoon batter into muffin tins to fill 8 cups. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Do not overbake!
Remove from oven and cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing. Serve warm or at room temperature.
