Zucchini Carrot & Apple Muffins

 

Zucchini Carrot and Apple Muffins with Blueberries (dried) and Walnuts. Made with Whole Wheat and Oats Flour!! If that sounds healthy enough, you should taste it! It is even more yummy!!

My 7 year old said, “I don’t like this”. “I love this” :)

The recipe is very similar to Red Carrots and Apple Muffins with Raisins and Walnuts, with very slight variations in ingredients. I love this recipe!

What you’ll need:

Dry Ingredients –

  • Whole Wheat Flour – 2 cups
  • Oats Flour (I make my own) – 1 cup (optional. Another cup of whole wheat flour instead. Adding oats makes the muffin a bit sticky)
  • Sugar – 1 cup  (can add more if you want. But there is sweetness from carrots and apples as well)
  • Baking Soda – 3 tsp
  • Salt -1 1/2 tsps
  • Nutmeg powder – 2 tsp (can add/swap with cinnamon too)
  • Walnuts (chopped) – 1 cup
  • Dried Blueberries – 1 cup

Wet Ingredients –

  • Eggs (beaten) – 4
  • Vanilla Extract – 3-4 tsp 
  • Avocado Oil – 1/2 cup (can substitute with a vegetable oil. I’ve even used olive oil)
  • Baby Carrots (shredded) – 2 to 3 cups
  • Zucchini (shredded) – 2
  • Apple (shredded) – 1

Note: I use the food processor to do all the shredding. Its very quick!
