    I found this recipe on YouTube & thought I'd give it a try since I'm always looking for ways to sneak veggies into our diet. These are fantastic! I realized I grated my veggies larger than the video shows, but they still came out wonderful. I also used mini-muffin cups & baked them for 16 minutes. According to MacGourmet, the calorie count is 148 per mini muffin.But who can eat just one! I think I'll make a 2nd batch & freeze them.

    Moist Sweet Veggie Muffins

    INGREDIENTS:

    3 cups cake flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ginger
    3 eggs
    1 cup vegetable oil
    1 cup white sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 cup carrots, finely shredded
    1 cup zucchini, finely shredded
    1/2-1 cup squash, finely shredded


    METHOD:

    1. Preheat oven to 325. Bake for 18-20 minutes
    2. Finely grate 1carrots, zucchini, and squash. Set aside.
    3. In a separate bowl, mix cake flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and ginger. Mix well.
    4. In another bowl, mix vegetable oil, white sugar, and brown sugar. Add the eggs & mix again. Stir in vanilla extract.
    5. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir until well combined. Batter will be thick & doughy. Add all the shredded veggies & stir well.
    6. Grease & flour muffin pans & fill 3/4 full.

    *note* Feel free to reduce or substitute the sugar if desired. Shredded apples or applesauce makes a great natural sweetener as do honey.
