My favorite carrot muffins
I love to bake muffins, and it's even better when I can use ingredients from my own backyard garden. Last April (that sounds like so long ago!), I planted a few carrot seeds. I finally got to harvest them this week. How fun are these multi-colored carrots?!
I ended up with just enough carrots to make my favorite carrot muffins, a recipe from Taste of Home. It's a healthy recipe, with whole wheat flour and applesauce instead of butter or shortening. I loved how these muffins turned out, with the different colors of shredded carrots in the mix. Give these a try next time you see carrots on sale at the grocery store (or at the farmers market).
