Carrot Apple Muffins

When I first came across this recipe, I thought it would have chunks of apple inside of the muffin but the apple referred to the apple sauce.  For the future, I think, I would put in either pieces of apple or another fruit.  A small amount of nuts would work as well.

My granddaughter loves this muffin and she completely finishes it.  It is a joy to see her eat something I made for her.

Carrot Apple Muffins


1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon  baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup Rice Milk
1/4 cup canola  oil
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350°F. 

Grease and flour a 12-cup standard muffin tin or use muffin papers. Set aside. 

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 

In a separate bowl, combine carrots, applesauce, eggs, Rice milk, oil and vanilla. 

Add half the carrot mixture to the flour mixture, stir until blended then add the rest of the carrot mixture.

Spoon batter into muffin cups and bake about 20 minutes or until a toothpick in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Serve warm.
