LUNCHBOX POWER PACKED FRUIT AND VEGGIE MUFFIN FOR PICKY EATERS



LUNCHBOX POWER PACKED FRUIT AND VEGGIE MUFFIN FOR PICKY EATERS
(Lactose free; ovo-vegetarian)
Ingredients
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup plain flour
¾ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cinnamon
¾ cup sugar
4 tbs canola oil
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 cup – apple juice
1/2 cup – applesauce, unsweetened
1 medium – carrots, raw
2 1/2 cup – fruit and veggie puree

Method:
Preheat oven to 190’C. Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl. Set aside. Mix the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla in a mixer. Beat well. Combine produce, apple juice, and apple sauce in a food processor and pulse until thoroughly mixed. Combine the puree and carrots into the oil mixture and beat until mixed. Finally, add the dry ingredients and mix just until combined and wet. Scoop the mixture into a prepared muffin pan. Bake them for about 20 minutes for regular size muffins until the tops are slightly brown and a toothpick comes out clean or they bounce back when you touch them with your finger. These freeze great! Put them in a freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
