Equipment

Ingredients

Dry

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (170g)
  • ½ cup rolled oats (50g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Wet

  • 1 cup mashed overripe banana (240g), 2 medium
  • 1 cup grated carrots (120g), 2-3 medium carrots
  • cup unsweetened applesauce (70g)
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 3-4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  • In a large bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
  • Combine the dry and wet ingredients. Be careful not to over mix. Use a spatula (instead of a whisk) to gently stir together until all the flour is wet. The less you stir the mixture, the lighter and fluffier your muffins will be.
  • Scoop batter evenly into a greased, lined or silicone 12-cup muffin pan.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the muffins to cool for 3-5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

  • If after trying the recipe as is, you feel they need more sweetness, you can add more maple syrup or honey
  • Egg-free? Use an egg replacer or flax eggs.
  • To store, place in an airtight container for up to 2 days on the counter or up to 4 days in the fridge. Enjoy at room temperature or microwave briefly.
  • Freeze for up to 3 months.
