Zucchini- Carrot Muffins

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.
