Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together flours, flaxseed, oats, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  2. In a separate bowl, blend together the following wet ingredients: milk, eggs, vanilla, grated zucchini, grated carrots, banana. (Note: I often use my blender for this step, as I have found it makes all the veggies “disappear” into the batter for picky eaters.)
  3. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until ingredients are just moistened. Stir in nuts, if wanted. Do not over mix.
  4. Fill greased muffin tins about ¾ of the way full (about 1/4 cup of batter per muffin hole).
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Notes/Tips

Freezer Meal Instructions:

To Freeze: Fully bake and cool muffins. Store in a single layer in a gallon-sized freezer bag or container.

To Prepare: Let thaw on the counter. Or wrap a frozen muffin in a moist paper towel and microwave in 30 seconds increments until warmed through.
