Zucchini Carrot Apple Muffins

Submitted by: JOANN562
Zucchini Carrot Apple Muffins

Introduction

These are moist, dense muffins that are NOT sugar or fat free...but are still on the healthy side of things.
I baked them to take on a camping trip & they were not only delicious first thing in the morning, but a nice pick-me-up during a hike~!
My 3 & 5yr olds love them too...a big + ;-)

Note to self: mini chocolate chips would be a good addition!

I may try with 100% whole grain

  • I had a little trouble with this recipe since it doesn't say at what temperature to cook the muffins. I went with 375, and they took about 25 mins, but that could just be my slow oven. Otherwise, these were great. They were easy, very moist, and delicious. Might add less oat topping next time. - 8/31/09
