Muffins!

I may have mentioned it before...

I love the Whole Foods App for the iPhone.

We tried these muffins and LOVED them!
Next time, I'll make a double batch so we have some leftovers for snack time!

"Eat these wholesome autumn muffins for breakfast or top them with cream cheese or vanilla frosting for a dessert treat."

Ingredients

1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar (I used agave nectar)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon non-aluminum baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup canola or safflower oil
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract

Method

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 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, milk, oil and vanilla. Add half the carrot mixture to the flour mixture, stir until blended then add the rest pf 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.

*Makes 8-12 muffins.

The leftovers!

Loved reading "Love the whole foods app for the iphone!" Chris and his coworkers have been working on that site and created that iphone application! So fun to read about my husband's work from my friend's sites! Thanks for that little "boost" this morning. :)
